Clinical Team

Dr. Humaira Mohsin

Registered Psychologist

I have assisted people challenged by mental health issues for over 24 years.  My practice primarily focuses on clients who suffer from depression, anxiety, substance use, trauma and personality disorders. My therapeutic approach is based on the values of respect, dignity and empathy and I view my professional role as being an "interventionist". 

As a clinical psychologist, I assess, diagnose and treat individuals using psychotherapy. I address the unique needs of my clients by integrating my training in Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy, Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Behavior Therapy, Gestalt Therapy and more recently Cognitive Processing Therapy.

I presently work as a psychologist at Fraser Health Authority and Boreal Wellness Centres. Previously, I worked in multiple professional clinical roles at University of British Columbia, Vancouver Coastal Heath Authority, Centre for Collaboration, Motivation and Innovation, Elizabeth Fry of Greater Vancouver, MOSAIC, BC, Moving Forward Family Services Society, Canadian Mental Health Association, Homewood Health and Centre for Clinical Psychology, University of the Punjab.  Given my  connections with many community programs, my multidisciplinary treatment model benefits the client holistically.

I bring a strong academic background to the therapeutic sessions. I have taught psycho-diagnostic assessment, therapeutic interventions and supervised research scholars and clinical interns at graduate, post graduate and doctoral level. I am one of the members of the Editorial Board for Pakistan Journal of Professional Psychology: Research & Practice and was an active member of the Doctoral Program Committee at the University of the Punjab. 

With a multilingual capacity for English, Urdu, Hindi and Punjabi, I am able to provide therapy to people with diverse cultural backgrounds from North America, South Asia, China, and Europe.

I received a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology and a M.Sc. in Applied Psychology from the University of the Punjab.
