About Me

Hello, I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Alaska. I have been working in the field of behavioral health since 2009, with specializing in work with adolescents and transitional aged individuals. . My fields of most practice are anxiety, trauma, and substance abuse.

I offer a client centered counseling approach. I believe that ultimately you are the person who is the expert on you and your struggles, and that you know what help you need. My style can be described as Motivational Interviewing, with a lot of Dialectical Behavioral Therapy techniques connected with it. I try and pepper my counseling with humor and validation with where you are and what you have gone to.

Your decision to reach out for counseling is incredibly brave. It takes a lot of courage to make this choice. I want to help make this process as helpful and as least invasive as possible.

I am very excited to work together.

Sonny is down to earth, to the point consistent and was able to connect with my daughter. It has only been two sessions but good so far.

Sonny gives me tough love when I need it and doesn't sugar coat things when I'm being hard on myself. He reminds me that I have value in myself. He's a phenomenal therapist

I have greatly enjoyed the help, support, and overall presence Mr. Minhas has had for me. Our very first meeting was an immediate deep dive into major issues I’d been having, and he didn’t even bat an eye or try to slow me down. In the year and a half or so he’s been helping me so far, I’ve been able to grow and learn about myself quite a bit, all thanks to him. I highly recommend this guy to anyone who needs a listening ear and helpful words through this crazy life.

Kind, not pushy. Ask questions how I need them asked not how I want them asked, I appreciate this.

Overall, Sonny has been very helpful with the problems I wish to understand. And has given me new perspectives about my habits, to move further with better and healthier practices. I was hesitant at first to try this out, but I'm glad I still did it.

He has really helped me to reframe and understand things about myself and he is always very respectful and supportive. I feel very comfortable with him.

Written by A.L. on Jan 11, 2021 after therapy with Harsimranjeet for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, and stress, anxiety

From the very first day Harsimranjeet understood what I needed to battle my anxiety and stress. He listened to what I wanted from these sessions and provided coping skills that I have been able to practice for the past few weeks. They have really helped and he has helped me balance my life better. It was really helpful when he would send a message every Sunday to check in and see how I was doing. That message helped me stop and ask myself "how am I actually doing?"

Going through a very difficult time in regards to family issues, he has been very honest and very precise in helping me pin point how I’ve been feeling and how best to navigate my way through how I’ve been feeling. Dealing with a lot of negativity personally as well, he’s been a great person to work with on my self esteem and how I view myself.

A great counselor who takes the time to check in regularly and make sure you're doing okay. Seems he genuinely cares about you and your wellbeing. Is able to offer insight into why you perceive a situation in a specific manner. Makes you feel heard. Would recommend.

He is very real with the advice that he gives and is also sensitive to what is going on.

Written by B.I. on May 16, 2020 after therapy with Harsimranjeet for 2 months on issues concerning addictions, and grief

He has been helpful since day one of being on this app. I've never once felt like a decision was made that wouldnt benefit myself or the people around me. Also am comfortable talking to him about what I am going through if I have an issue or something has comes up. I am glad he has been with me during this time I've been using this program.

I appreciate that he provides a safe place for me to share feelings that I can’t with other people in my life. He’s real and honest which I appreciate as well. Sometimes even when I’m not participating maybe as much as I should, the check ins are nice.

Talking with Harsimranjeet has been such a lifesaver especially in such a hard time (coronavirus). Talking with him doesn’t feel like talking to a therapist, it feels like talking to a friend.

Written by M.A. on Mar 03, 2020 after therapy with Harsimranjeet for 2 weeks

At first I was hesitant to the idea of online therapy, but the small town I live in is fully booked for in-person therapist, so I wasn't left many options. Online (or over the phone) has been a great introduction for me and Sonny is very understanding and uses humor and whatever you're comfortable with to ease you into it. He has recommended breathing exercises and a book that have been helping immensely. For me personally I've been struggling with poor decision making since I gave birth to my son, and it was very reassuring to know that this is normal and I'm not a terrible human being. I've only had 2 sessions so far, but over already noticed a change in my perception.

Written by A.L. on Feb 24, 2020 after therapy with Harsimranjeet for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and self esteem

Harsimranjeet Minhas (aka Sonny) honestly helped me through my break up that happened January 11th. He listened and it felt like I was just texting a friend. That’s.. super articulate and provides you insight on things. Sonny provided me with terms associated with what I’m feeling. One of those terms being “extinction theory” where when the feelings are dying you feel them more intensely before it fully withers out( just knowing there as a term associated to what was feeling made me feel grounded. That I wasn’t the only one going through with it since there’s a term/theory based on it). Worked out my feelings with me. Even if it’s right or wrong. Provided me with an unbiased perspective. Which is hard to get with your friends since they’d just be on your side. Sony keeps telling me that, “my mindset and strive for getting over my 2 and half year relationship was most of the reason why I got over it so fast, but if it wasn’t for Sonny I really don’t think it wouldn’t have worked out so fast for me. Even though we were talking for a month, you’ve really helped me through a lot and I thank you for that. If problems arise that are just as bad I’ll probably come back here.

Work with me!
