Preeti Rane (she/her), MA
I am a Registered Psychotherapist in good standing with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO). I hold a Bachelors and a Masters degree in Psychology.
I have over sixteen years of experience working with individuals and families, from diverse backgrounds and age groups, who are seeking support with trauma, anxiety, depression, interpersonal relationship difficulties, grief, life transitions, and personal growth. I specialize in supporting adults who have experienced sexual abuse, intimate partner violence, adverse childhood experiences and complex trauma.
My niche remains in supporting children, adolescents and their parents/caregivers struggling to cope with mental health challenges that impact their functioning at home and/or school. These challenges include but are not limited to school avoidance, emotional and behavioural difficulties, OCD, learning difficulties, ADHD, parent-child relational challenges, trauma, and attachment. My goal is to facilitate children and youth to re-emerge into resilient and well-adjusted young people capable of adapting successfully to life stressors.
My approach to therapy is trauma-specific, attachment-based, developmentally grounded, person-centred, and strength-based. I integrate various approaches to therapy such as EMDR, CBT, ERP, and Dance/Movement Therapy that are congruent with each client’s presenting concerns and their needs.
My experience of sixteen years of working with clients from varied backgrounds both in India and Canada, as well as my own personal experience being a South Asian immigrant has helped me gain a culturally sensitive, anti-oppressive and a compassionate stance in my practice.
I provide my clients with a warm and non-judgemental environment to help them feel safe in therapy. I focus on building a strong therapeutic alliance with each client as that is one of the most important factors contributing to the change and healing process.
I work with English, Hindi, and Marathi-speaking clients.
