I’m Manjima Salim, and, my journey as a clinical counsellor has deeply influenced how I engage with the world: through a trauma-informed and culturally competent lens. Grounded in family systems and anti-oppressive frameworks, I navigate my practice with values of humility, openness, and non-violent communication.

I find fulfillment in working with children, youth, and their parents, together or individually, as well as couples and families. I also enjoy leading workshops and developing resources on topics such as mental health, relationships, and parenting.

I am committed to the transformative power of knowledge-sharing in guiding us through life’s stages and transitions with greater ease and connection.

I have over 5 years of experience in the healthcare field and investigated the topic of ‘Burnout in Healthcare: Revisited through a Family Systems Framework’ for my graduate thesis. Through this work, I developed a deep passion for understanding how organizations can better support their employees in managing the challenges of their roles, particularly in helping professions such as within the healthcare system, and the impacts of first-hand and vicarious trauma.

My mission is to support and empower those I serve to overcome systemic barriers, while recognizing that I operate within systems myself.
