Meghana Kotwal, MA, RP
Registered Psychotherapist

Location: Online psychotherapy available to those who live anywhere in Ontario, by phone or video.


My approach to therapy starts with a safe space where you can express yourself fully. I believe in working with your strengths while addressing the issues that cause you distress.

I will work with you to address anxiety, depression, ADHD, relationship issues, and self-esteem. I have helped my clients navigate difficult experiences in life or school, with grief, and with academic and work stress. I have worked with children and can help with parenting-related issues, including severe problems like selective mutism.

I integrate many forms of therapy, drawing from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and Mindfulness. When working with children, I also use play therapy and art activities.


I speak English, Hindi and Marathi, and can help you with inter-cultural issues. My experience working with children and their parents (at the Santa Clara School District) gives me a unique perspective on the stresses experienced by both. Before becoming a psychotherapist, I worked in Human Resources and can help you navigate the stresses of corporate life.

Location: Online counselling available to those who live anywhere in British Columbia, by phone or video.


I’m Anna and I enjoy developing a strong rapport with clients and working in collaboration with them to achieve their goals, promote and improve their overall well-being and quality of life. My approach is flexible. Whether the client is feeling lost and overwhelmed, looking for personal growth or specific changes in their life, seeking further understanding of themselves, findings ways to manage and cope or to simply reflect, I will continue to check-in with them to make sure the sessions are meeting their needs.
