I’m Chaanan Kaur, a Psychologist at My Conscious Mind Mental Health Center. I firmly believe in creating a tailored and supportive environment as people navigate through their different mental health journeys with me.
My mixed experiences in the mental health field, from my mental health, struggles to understanding the “behind the scenes” of treatments and interventions in my research role to practicing as a mental health professional, have shaped my perspective uniquely.
I stand very firmly by the thought that each client’s therapeutic experience is different, and each relationship built in therapy will be one of a kind. As a psychologist, I have offered therapy to individuals of diverse backgrounds and am very comfortable establishing a rapport with adolescents ages 16 and over and adults of all ages.
How I work
My work focuses primarily on identity, life transitions, marital and family difficulties, pre-martial relationships, reclaiming cultural roots, relationship challenges, anxiety and stress, loss and bereavement, and trauma.
As each person is an individual with their own unique life story that they’ve lived- the therapeutic approach that I take is an Eclectic and Client-Centered modality with a particular emphasis on a Narrative Therapy style element to my work.
Additionally, I am well versed in using Positive Psychology Interventions, and Solution Focused Brief therapy when working with corporates and their employees.
I’m here to act as that catalyst for change- our problems do not define us, how we support ourselves, how we seek help, and what we do to move ahead from there.
Please feel free to contact me if you want to know more or may have any questions about me or my work.
