Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying)
My name is Maryum Khokhar. I am a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying), regulated in good standing with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO). I provide professional counseling and/ or psychotherapy services within the GTA.
I received my Master’s of Arts in Counselling Psychology degree from Yorkville University in which I also completed an intensive clinical and counselling internship at York University. My previous academic achievements include an Honour’s Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from York University and a Post-Graduate Certificate in Autism and Behavioural Sciences from Seneca College.
I have had the privilege and honour to gather multiple exceptional and eye- opening experiences in an array of educational, professional, work and volunteer related positions. I have worked with children, adolescents, youth, individuals, adults, families and communities in various capacities. My true calling has always been to be a part of the human psychology, fostering “revolutions” through counseling and finding beauty and connection within our communities
In this practice, I am guided by an evidence-based, harm reduction, trauma- informed, anti-oppressive, holistic, diversity-sensitive and an equity- social justice lens. I believe my clients are the experts in their lives in bringing about positive change, mental health well being, enlightened awareness, and their best and true selves forward. My clients and I work together with a unique, individualized and client- centered approach to create solutions in a safe, trusted, and non- judgmental space, that most directly and effectively meets their needs and goals. I will be honored and humbled to work with you and to know you've chosen to trust me as a part of your life journey.
I've been able to connect with my clients at a deeper level through my natural qualities of being compassionate, thoughtful, patient, intuitive, and open-minded. I work with my clients by honoring their narrative, personal histories, lived realities, experiences, values, strengths, and qualities to promote holistic well-being.
