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 Greater Toronto Area (GTA), Ontario, Canada.
I received my Master’s of Arts in Counselling Psychology degree from Yorkville University (Canada) in which I also completed an intensive counselling internship at York University (Canada). 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 (Canada).
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, the profound playing, unfolding and meaning making of life, and finding beauty and connection within ourselves and our communities.
In this practice, I am guided by an evidence-based, harm reduction, trauma- informed, anti-oppressive, holistic, diversity-sensitive, culturally informed, 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's journey.
I've been able to connect with my clients at a deeper level through my natural qualities of being compassionate, open- minded, thoughtful, patient, and intuitive. I work with my clients by honoring their narrative, personal histories, lived realities, experiences, values, strengths, and qualities to promote holistic well-being.
