Rahul James

Social Worker | Alberta & Ontario

Hi, I’m Rahul – a Registered Social Worker in Ontario and Alberta with a deep commitment to providing compassionate care. As an immigrant belonging to the BIPOC community, I have a broad perspective on social issues and utilize this cross-cultural experience in my practice.

Committed to anti-oppressive and social justice perspectives, my counselling approach is guided by principles such as harm reduction, housing-first, patient-centered, and trauma-informed care. I aim to empower individuals and communities and build resilience.

I understand that reaching out for help can be a monumental step. Please know that your feelings, experiences, and stories matter. You deserve a space where you can embrace healing at your own pace, guided by compassion and expertise. Together, we can navigate the intricacies of your journey. When you’re ready, I’m here – eager to be a part of your transformative journey towards well-being and fulfillment.

Are you:

  • Someone who has experienced the depth of life’s challenges, perhaps grappling with trauma, PTSD, grief, or relationship issues?
  • Facing anxieties, behavioural concerns, or family conflicts stemming from diverse issues?
  • Looking to find clarity, healing, and empowerment in a therapeutic space that is both culturally sensitive and technically adept?
  • Wanting to be seen, heard, and understood as you yearn for resilience, growth, and a renewed sense of purpose?

Specific foci include:

  • Immigration and immigrant experience along with accompanying laws
  • Trauma histories
  • BIPOC-centric care
  • Mental Health Act, Adult Guardianship and Trusteeship Act, and able to act as a Designated Capacity Assessor under the Government of Alberta.

Counselling modalities include:

  • Motivational interviewing (MI)
  • Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT)
  • Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy
