The Story Behind ARTMA

Hi, my name is Anand and I'd like to welcome you to my private practice. I'm a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario, a Professional member of the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association and a Professional Art Therapist with the Canadian Art Therapy Association. ARTMA is my brand that symbolizes the essence of how I practice. I believe there is no one way or no one approach to therapy. We are so much more. They key to cultivating true healing and sustainable change, resides in the empowerment through the realization that we each hold the wisdom to be our authentic self. Within a therapeutic relationship and with therapeutic skill, together we will find what works best for you. There is an art and science to getting there!

Individual Psychotherapy, EMDR Therapy, Sessions with a mix of Psychotherapy, Creativity and Mindfulness, Art Therapy, Group Workshops, Corporate Workshops, Team Building Workshops and Self-Care Workshops. First step, a 15-minute phone consultation.

My awareness and understanding of the science in the elements of therapy, help create a fertile ground for effective and lasting change. For example, this can include on a neurobiological level, window of tolerance, neuroplasticity, therapeutic presence and relationship, creative wisdom and evidence based psychotherapy approaches such as EMDR Therapy and Emotion Focused Therapy.

Depression, anxiety, stress, rumination, trauma, grief, loss, uncertainty, change, life transitions, understanding our emotions, feeling stuck, triggers, relationship difficulties, self-esteem, self-worth, inner critic, perfectionism, values, identity, self-care and other typical stressors in life.

The pillars of my practice are being person-centered, collaborative and anti-oppressive. Throughout our journey together, I'm committed to embodying my core values while being an advocate for you.
