Farah feels privileged to have also provide services to the Canadian Department of National Defense, Municipal First Responders and support to other clinicians from her interest in Trauma.

Farah values ongoing learning and training and has maintained various certifications including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Trauma Based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (T-CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Narrative Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) and Gottman’s Level 1 Couples Training. 

 

She also believes in connectedness in the therapist community and works hard as a Regional Network Coordinator on behalf of EMDR Canada as well as hosting various groups for therapists.

In order to connect with people who may not be able to meet in person she graduated from University of Toronto’s e-counseling program and now provides counseling online. This has proven very helpful for many people including those who travel frequently but would like continue the flow of their sessions.

She has earned recognition's through her years of work and most specifically in providing preventative education to reduce risks of suicide in long term care facilities with the geriatric population.

Farah is inspired by her belief in people’s desire and ability to heal, grow and thrive. She has ongoing interests in neuroscience and is passionate to support people in learning about their own minds.

​Farah has also worked with various organizations to develop collegial relationships, conflict resolution and soft skills as well as program development. She has volunteered in various capacities providing support and information for mental wellness.

In her spare time she enjoys travel, culinary arts, running, cycling and creating memories with loved ones.

Farah looks forward to working with you to achieve your best self.
