About Me

My counseling style is warm, open and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, client centered, mindfulness and strengthening the innate positive qualities that everyone brings. I will tailor our sessions and treatment plan to meet your child's unique and specific needs. I have over 10 years of experience in working with children of all ages and their families. I have worked with adolescents who have experienced anxiety, depression, mood disorders, ADHD, trauma and behavioral issues.

It takes courage to seek help in overcoming obstacles, starting the healing process and seeking a more fulfilling and happier life. I am ready to provide support and empower you on your child on their journey.

I look forward to working with your family.

Grateful for Akishna and for her support

Written by R.A. on Mar 22, 2022 after therapy with Akishna for 3 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, compassion fatigue, and adhd

She is straight up without making me feel dumb and she treats me like a person. It’s like talking to a friend who actually has good advice. Whether I take that advice or not is another thing. :)

Written by T.O. on Feb 07, 2022 after therapy with Akishna for 1 month on issues concerning stress, anxiety

Akishna is so perceptive and spot on with her advice. Has helped me to prioritised things and not take so much onboard and therefore not be overburdened with lifes problems.

She listens, asks right questions to make you think, and offers constructive feedback.

Written by D.A. on Nov 04, 2021 after therapy with Akishna for 5 months on issues concerning depression, relationship issues, family conflicts, sleeping disorders, self esteem, career difficulties, coping with life changes, and coaching

I am amazed at Akishna's ability to see common patterns/threads across multiple sessions in real-time. She very quickly zeroed in on my challenges and negative patterns. She took a multi-pronged approach to help me learn to adapt or adjust, and she did so in small enough steps that I could actually implement them. She is extremely non-judgmental and is supportive even when I'm not at my best.
Finally, her focus is not 100% on what is going wrong, she spends a fair amount of time helping/reminding me of what I'm doing that is working. It's not a linear process, but she helps me see that I'm continually making progress.
I'm extremely grateful to Akishna. I am in a much healthier mental place now compared to when she and I first started talking.

Akishna is an amazing therapist and I would 100% recommend her to anyone. She has helped me through personal issues with myself and relationships I'm struggling with.

I’m bad at writing long paragraphs, but sincerely she is fantastic, empathetic, cool, and very generous. I feel comfortable with her, she understands and is very coherent with her advice. She is patient, genuine and smart. In other words, JUST LOVE HER! She the best!

Written by C.A. on Oct 23, 2021 after therapy with Akishna for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, bipolar disorder, coping with life changes, compassion fatigue, and adhd

Akishna is an intelligent and kind individual. She has actively made me heard and helped give me the tools I need to move forward in life. I always feel comfortable and free to be myself with Akishna. I know that I will be accepted yet challenged to grow and be a better version of myself.

Written by T.A. on Sep 29, 2021 after therapy with Akishna for 3 weeks on issues concerning family conflicts, and coping with life changes

We’ve only had a couple sessions, but she is perfect for me. She not only listens, but I love that she actually interacts and offers advise. Most counselors just want me to talk. I would definitely recommend her to others.

Written by B.R. on Aug 20, 2021 after therapy with Akishna for 2 months on issues concerning relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, coping with life changes, intimacy-related issues, and parenting issues

Akishna is a saint! I've worked with another counsellor in the past and the experience was less than stellar. Working with Akishna completely changed my view on counselling. From the onset, Akishna has been attentive, detail-oriented and very easy to talk to. I would recommend her to anyone looking to really uncover their trauma and heal accordingly. I've recommended her to countless friends and family members and would recommend her to you too!

Akishna is amazing. She is so positive and professional. My goals feel more accessible after speaking with her. If you have a choice, choose Akishna!

Has been there when I needed it. And gave me some perspectives I needed in order to move forward in certain areas of my life. I'm still working on everything but it is what it is

Akishna, is fully engaged in her sessions. She offers insightful and useful ideas of how to navigate difficulties. She adapts readily to the needs of the individual and her dynamic approach makes each session extremely productive. Thanks Akishna for your ongoing support!
