What's your business, and who are your customers?

Tell us about yourself

As the founder of Canadian Therapy, my principles are built on you as a person responsible for your happiness, and everyone else, everything else around you contributes to your satisfaction.

Each client's journey is unique. At Canadian Therapy, we ensure that we work with our clients by investing time and patience in getting to know them. During the pandemic, I recognized a greater need for people to voice how they were feeling or reflect on what they were going through.

It's important to me as a south Asian therapist that our clients feel a sense of connection and belonging. By being able to relate to certain aspects, you gain a greater perspective on people's lives. Each day my self-care motivates me to ensure I have the best day possible. If I manage my self-care and ensure I fill my glass before I give it to anyone else, I will find balance in my life. I am a proud wife and mother of two beautiful boys.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

The growth of our clinic.

What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?

Managing time and making sure all your priorities are met.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

  1. Be persistent.
  2. Dream big and put it out in the universe.
  3. There's a time and a place for everything…
