Tulsi believes that the beauty of life is in its ups and downs, however, there are times in our journey when life comes with challenges that may feel overwhelming or unmanageable. Connecting with a therapist can allow individuals the opportunity to unpack feelings of stress and emotional distress while identifying effective ways to cope. Tulsi strives to create a safe, non-judgmental, and collaborative therapeutic space where individuals feel heard and hopeful. Her work includes validating emotions, identifying, and highlighting strengths and collaboratively working on goals toward change and growth.
Tulsi adopts an eclectic approach to therapy, drawing from various therapeutic models, including the principles of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), mindfulness, strength-based, solution-focused, and person-centred techniques, amongst others. She aims at helping people better understand their thoughts, feelings, and emotions, as well as address unhelpful behaviours and highlight effective coping mechanisms through trauma-informed practices.
Working from a culturally responsive lens, Tulsi works with individuals experiencing stress, depression, anxiety, issues with self-esteem, mood disorders (depression, anxiety, bipolar), borderline personality disorder, anger management, grief and loss, trauma, PTSD, relationship issues, family conflict, emotional disturbances, and time-management amongst various other concerns. Tulsi is fluent in and can provide services in English, Gujarati, Urdu and Hindi.\
Education: Tulsi’s educational background includes a bachelor’s degree in science from the University of Waterloo, a Social Services diploma in Gerontology from Sheridan College, and a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology from Yorkville University. She is registered and has a good standing with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO) and is a member of the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA).
