As an integrative therapist, Diviya tailors evidence-based interventions to clients’ unique needs.

She connects authentically with clients to rediscover their inner resources and values to move towards the life they hope to live.

Sliding Scale Counselling
I am committed to offering low-cost counselling to Black, Indigenous or People of Colour (BIPOC) individuals who are facing financial barriers to accessing mental health supports. Note* with a 12-session limit.
I am NOT currently accepting new sliding scale clients, but am accepting clients for a wait list.
For other sliding scale/low cost therapists, please visit https://affordabletherapynetwork.com/ or https://www.hardfeelings.org/
I am currently offering therapy online, using a confidential online software, Jane App, to provide clients with individual psychotherapy to adults.
I offer clients a15-minute free phone or video consultations to gauge your fit with me.
I am an NIHB provider, providing counselling to those who are Indigenous/Inuit (i.e. you must have a 10-digit status no.). There is a 22-session per year limit. I provide direct billing if requested.
Interracial/Interethnic Couples Therapy
I am drawn to supporting couples in inter-ethnic or inter-racial partnerships, being in one myself, and understanding the added unique and complex nuances merging two different cultures together.
I draw from IFIO and IFS to support couples, and each session lasts 65 minutes.
I am currently accepting a limited number of new couples into my practice.
I acknowledge that my work spans many traditional territories, e.g. Tkaronto, “Where The Trees Meet The Water”; “The Gathering Place", of the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishinaabe, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat peoples, and W̱SÁNEĆ, which means "the emerging people", home to W̱JOȽEȽP (Tsartlip), W̱SIKEM (Tseycum), and SȾÁUTW̱ (Tsawout) nations.
I acknowledge these & any other Nations who care for the land (acknowledged and unacknowledged, recorded and unrecorded) as the past, present and future caretakers of this land.
I am grateful for the traditional Knowledge Keepers and Elders who are with us today, those who have gone before us and the youth that inspire us. I recognize the land acknowledgement as an act of Reconciliation, as recommended by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s (TRC) 94 Calls to Action and have gratitude to those whose territory I reside on and work on, while acknowledging this is but a small act towards reconciliation.
I am committed to supporting indigenous sovereignty & dismantling White Supremacy culture and colonialism by naming the violence done to indigenous communities, not calling police on BIPOC community members, continue my anti-oppressive anti-racist learnings and practice, and educate others on this.
