Hello, my name is Sukanya, and I welcome you to a safe and non-judgemental therapeutic
I have worked as a clinician with several psychiatric hospitals, universities, and community organizations. I am a Certified Canadian Counsellor (C.C.C) and a Registered professional member in good standing with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA), a Registered Counselling Therapist (RCT-C) with the Nova Scotia College of Counselling Therapist (NSCCT). In addition, I am a Certified Clinical Trauma Specialist (CCTP) from Arizona Trauma Institute and a Certified Grief Counsellor (US).
My academic background includes a Master of Science in Clinical Psychology and Neuroscience and Bachelor of Science with honours in Psychology. I received certifications in Couples and Relationship Treatment from Harvard Medical School and attended several clinical trainings in Psychological Interventions (Johns Hopkins University), Psychiatry (University of Sydney), attended courses and workshops in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT), Solution Focused Therapy (SFT), Advanced Mindfulness Interventions, Trauma informed Couples Therapy (Gottman), and Internal Family Systems (IFS).
My area of focus includes Trauma (chronic, complex, PTSD, relational, attachment, childhood
trauma), anxiety disorder (GAD, OCD, Social Anxiety etc.), mood disorders (Depression and
Bipolar), Couples/ Relationship Counselling, LGBTQ+, anger management, Grief, stress
management, body image, eating disorder and self-esteem.
My approach to treatment is eclectic in nature and incorporates holistic, trauma informed,
client centred and humanistic framework. As a polyglot (English, Bengali, Spanish, Hindi), I
strive to provide culturally sensitive and racially informed therapy to individuals, couples, and
families from diverse backgrounds. I provide a therapeutic environment that is safe, grounded
in compassion and empathy, using evidence-based treatment.
In addition to my clinical work, I am a professional artist and an Ambassador with United Nations of Canada, representing the National Capital Region, working on SDG global goals, policies on mental health and community well-being.
Please get in touch if you feel you’d like to work together.
Everyone is Welcome
