Yasmine Sikender

Yasmine is a bilingual social worker and therapist with a Master’s degree in Social Work from McGill University. She has many years’ experience practicing mental health counselling with adults experiencing personal and workplace stress, anxiety, depression, grief/loss, and life transitions. 


She’s been interviewed on CTV news, and she’s been a guest speaker twice on iHeartRadio’s show, “Life Unrehearsed.”


Yasmine integrates empathy with a solution-oriented and holistic approach. Her interventions are tailored to be culturally sensitive.


She offers a quiet and safe place for you to share your story with her. She’ll explore the best tools to help you manage your symptoms, adapt to your environment, and improve your overall well-being.
