Education: MACP Student under Supervision, RP (Qualifying)

Background: Pirntha is a student in the Master of Arts Counselling Psychology (MACP) program at Yorkville University, completing her practicum placement under the supervision of Dr. Sarah Thompson, Clinical Psychologist. Pirntha has over five years of experience working at crisis lines, rape crisis centers, withdrawal management facilities, community organizations, and hospitals. During this time, she supported adolescents and adults with mental health and substance use concerns.

Specialty: Supporting individuals with navigating bicultural identities, trauma, acculturation stress, anxiety, life transitions, substance use and low self-esteem.

Approach: Pirntha brings a person-centred approach to her work, drawing on Emotion Focused, Mindfulness-Based, Narrative, and Dialectical Behaviour therapies to understand your experiences and empower you on your path of self-discovery. She employs a trauma-informed, feminist / Anti-Racism and Anti-Oppression (ARAO) lens.

Perspective: As an immigrant to Canada and a woman of colour, Pirntha empathizes with the unique challenges of navigating bi-cultural and intersecting identities while developing a cohesive sense of self. She recognizes that healing is unique, views you as the expert of your story and embraces the idea that our struggles are multi-dimensional, much like our lives.
