Allahna (she/her) is a settler on the traditional and unceded territories of the Coast Salish People, particularly, the ancestral lands of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh nations, and is grateful to be living, learning, and practicing on this land.
Allahna identifies as a Muslim woman of colour; she has a multicultural, person-centered, emotion-focused approach and aims to be trauma-informed. She welcomes all people from diverse backgrounds and experiences and understands how social and cultural factors can influence their journey. Allahna has experience supporting neurodivergent individuals who have experienced complex trauma. She believes in tailoring her approach to each client’s needs in a collaborative process that is the most beneficial and helpful for her clients.
Allahna is a student counsellor who is currently completing her Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology at Yorkville University. Allahna’s therapeutic approach is centered around collaboration. Allahna believes that all clients have unique lived experiences, meaning clients should be met at whatever point they are at in their journey, as they are the expert of their own lives. She strives to meet all clients with empathy, non-judgement, openness, and kindness. She hopes to build a safe space for all her clients, allowing for an environment of empowerment, encouragement, and connection. Making the step to seek counselling is a huge step for anyone, and Allahna’s focus is supporting individuals through emotional difficulties that come up.
In her personal time, Allahna finds peace in spending time in nature, with loved ones, and reading.
Allahna is looking forward to connecting with you!
