My Approach

Making the decision to look into counselling or therapy can sometimes feel uncomfortable and intimidating at times. Finding the right counsellor or therapist can be challenging. It's important to find a therapist with whom you feel comfortable with and can trust.

​An idea of what you can expect when you meet with Ms. Shah:

-Together with Ms. Shah you will define the problem: assess your current situation and challenges you're facing.
-Together you will brainstorm and examine the changes you would like to make.
-Together you will establish goals and clarify an intervention plan.
-Together you will assess your strengths and talents that will support the changes (from strength-based and client-centered perspectives).

How I Assess


I assess and treat clients from many perspectives, to open possibilities, and choices. I work from a strengths based framework of empowerment and use principles of solution focused brief therapy, narrative therapy and cognitive behaviour therapy. I seek to understand and reflect each client’s story within the context of their unique environment, strengths, and resources to support their "process of change" through empowerment and a respectful client-centered approach.
