Subitha Tharmakulasagaram

Subitha holds a Master’s degree in Counselling Psychology and is an active member of the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association. Over the past year, Subitha has been dedicated to assisting individuals in crisis who suffer from depression and anxiety at the West Island Crisis Centre. Through her warm and compassionate approach, she strive to create an inclusive and accepting environment where clients feel comfortable discussing the challenges they face. Her therapeutic approach draws from various modalities, primarily rooted in cognitive behavioural and psychodynamic frameworks. By focusing on clients' strengths, she guides them towards reaching their full potential through incremental and realistic goal setting, among other effective strategies.

 

For the past 13 years, Subitha has actively served her native Tamil community as an advocate. Witnessing the impact of limited mental health services on her community inspired her to pursue a career as a therapist. Her active involvement within the community, combined with her personal life experiences, profoundly shapes her practice. She is committed to providing culturally-sensitive and trauma-informed care, recognizing and respecting the unique needs of individuals from diverse backgrounds.
