Nasim Chatha




Nasim aims to listen carefully, and to co-create therapeutic relationships based on open communication and collaboration. Her theoretical orientation is psychodynamic, which means she works with you to understand how your childhood and early relationships shape how you experience the present. Her work is trauma-informed, sex-positive, and is guided by social justice principles.


Nasim specializes in working with biracial and bicultural people, and with people who struggle with relationships of all kinds. She also has extensive experience working with clients experiencing depression and anxiety. Nasim is grateful for the chance to work with you to cultivate lasting change.
