Sha Okan Psychologist

Hi, I'm Sha 👋

People come to therapy for all kinds of reasons. I understand what a big step it can be to make that first call. I offer a warm, safe place for you to share where you are at, and explore what may be going on for you.

We can work together to come up with ways for you to understand your situation better and to enjoy your life more. I consider it an honour to be with people in this way and I look forward to meeting you.
