About Vrushalee

For those feeling unfulfilled, stuck, not quite themselves, or struggling with emotional regulation, I welcome you. I work with clients struggling with anxiety, depression, ADHD, childhood sexual abuse, relational and developmental trauma, and personal relationships. I utilize a variety of evidence-based modalities including psychodynamic, mindfulness, solution-focused, trauma-informed, and emotionally-focused approaches.

I provide a space for clients that is free of judgment, inclusive, and empowering. I use modalities that are evidence-based such as psychodynamic, mindfulness, solution-focused, trauma-informed, and emotionally-focused approaches. I am passionate about supporting individuals and couples and I specialize in supporting marginalized communities such as those who identify as 2SLGBTQI+ and immigrants.

For more information on how to get started with your healing journey, feel free to book a session or a free consultation using the links on this page. I’d be happy to answer any questions you may have. And even if you and I are not the right fit, I would be happy to help you find the right therapist for you.

Vrushalee’s Story

I grew up in an environment where mental health was the last consideration. However, for a decade I was involved in giving back to society via volunteering efforts for shelters that supported children and adults who were survivors of abuse. Additionally, I worked in the corporate world as a Behavioral Facilitator and Career Counselor. As such, I have always found it fulfilling to serve community members in enhancing their mental health. However, back then the options to pursue a career in mental health were limited. When I came to Canada in 2018, I continued to volunteer. In 2020, when the COVID-19 pandemic began, the mental health crisis reignited my long-lost dream to pursue a professional career in the mental health field. Since the world switched to work-from-home, it gave me back 4-5 hours that otherwise I spent traveling for my day job. This is where I started looking for suitable options that could give me the necessary education to get licensed in this field and I came upon Yorkville University’s Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology (MACP), and the rest is history!

Therapy with Vrushalee

In your first session, we’ll explore what brought you to therapy and then decide the most appropriate ways to help you make progress. We’ll achieve this by talking about three things:

  • First, we’ll go over your background information (e.g., what makes you, you, what your life is like today, who’s in your life).

  • Then, we’ll go in great depth about your main concerns.

  • Finally, we’ll talk about your goals for therapy: we’ll come up with a list of therapeutic goals that you’re hoping to achieve through therapy.

Afterwards, we will work towards your goals together. Depending on your current thoughts and emotions, we can also unpack your lived experiences to gain understanding and perspective to help improve your feelings and life quality.
