Brinda is a counsellor and psychotherapist with a keen desire to provide people with the warmth, genuineness, and safety they need in order to become the most authentic version of themselves and fulfill the aspirations that they have for themselves and their relationships.

Brinda has worked in several areas of well-being, including education, gender, health, and disabilities, that have all influenced her collaborative approach to providing therapy. Over the years, she developed a deep interest in relationships, dating and intimacy and the prominent role they play in our identities and society. Emotionally Focused Therapy’s conceptualization of people as whole and wanting for connection appealed immensely to her client-centered sensibilities, especially in the current age of isolation and individualization that we exist in.

Brinda is interested in working with individuals and couples from all age groups, inter-racial and inter-cultural couples and parents, people from LGBTQIAP backgrounds, and people from refugee and immigrant populations. Her areas of interest include mood and anxiety disorders, grief and loss, family dynamics, and other adjustment issues that come up as we grow and change.

Brinda specialized in counselling psychology in her undergraduate degree and actively works towards honing her skills with individuals and couples alike. She completed part of her Masters degree placement under the supervision of Dr Jennifer Fitzgerald, and is now seeing clients professionally at ACEFT.
