Punitha Manoharan

Clinical Social Work/Therapist, MSW RSW

I hold a Master’s degree in Social Work and am registered with the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers. I have over 20 years of experience in the field of mental health in both Canadian and International contexts; working in hospitals, mental health crisis services, education, community settings as well private practice among various other sectors. I have been practicing in Ontario for the past decade and have extensive experience treating various mental health concerns in younger and adult population.

My extensive experience and knowledge over these years have made me a seasoned and versatile therapist. I'm trained in various modalities of therapy treatment and continuously update my skills and knowledge. I strongly believe learning is a source of power that enforces positive change. I integrate my wealth of trainings that are evidence-informed and evidence-based over the years and my real life experience while treating my clients. I enjoy being very creative and I appreciate your ideas and suggestions in our work together.

I chose a career in therapy because of my love and passion towards connecting with people and enabling them to discover their strengths, insight, and wisdom. I will assist you to recognize your full potential by facilitating a process towards your self-discovery in which you will eventually find and self-actualize solutions.
