Salima Punjani (she/her)
" I am a socially-engaged artist and social worker. I draw on my artistic practice and my awareness and lived experience of systemic issues such as racism and ableism in my counseling practice. My approach is holistic and strengths-based. I can support you in understanding systemic factors that are causing you pain, the impacts of trauma in your life, as well as support you in developing skills to help you manage uncomfortable sensations and emotions.
I can help you identify and take advantage of your strengths and networks. I enjoy using different creative mediums such as photography in my work with my clients.
I offer a sliding scale for BIPOC/Mad/Deaf/Disabled clients and am able to provide tax-exempt insurance receipts if needed. I am licensed to work in Québec and electronically in Ontario. "
