About Shristi

I am passionate about working with older teens and adults who have experienced trauma, sports related concerns, and challenges in life. I dedicate my work to collaborating with individuals, and empowering them to overcome the impacts of these experiences.

As long as I can remember, sports and exercise have been a large part of my life. I started playing soccer at the age of four and went on to play for school and competitive teams - I still play competitively to this day. I have also been involved in many other competitive sports throughout the years, and always enjoy the challenge while pushing myself in new directions. From all of my personal experiences with athletics, I recognize the need for psychology within this field and understand how integral mental well-being is to performance.

 

Outside of my athletic endeavours, I have worked and volunteered in settings which have given me an abundance of experience with trauma counselling. My passion lies in helping individuals to grow from the impacts of hardships, discover how to build their strengths, and learn skills to maintain their well-being.
