Raj completed his M.A. in Clinical Psychology at Simon Fraser University (SFU) and is currently pursuing his Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology also at SFU. His research experience focuses on attachment relationships, and he believes understanding those relationships are vital for healthy development into adulthood.
Raj is committed to providing a safe, non-judgmental, and inclusive space for his clients. He has extensive experience working with difficult topics and is comfortable engaging with clients who have endured social injustice traumas (e.g., racism).
Adolescence is a challenging period in life – Raj hopes to support preteens and teens to find comfort in the chaos and give them a safe space to speak freely while developing the skills to combat challenges that arise. In addition, Raj hopes to use this knowledge and share tools to help young people and their parents manage their lives.
INTERESTS & ACTIVITIES
Raj likes to be active. He loves to go to the gym and play and watch sports (e.g., tennis, soccer, hockey, football). He also likes video games and is open to learning and exploring new games, so definitely introduce new ones to him, but keep in mind; he is a console guy, so you'll have to convince him why computer games are better :)!
Raj speaks English and Punjabi fluently.
