Our Director, Zahra Nafar, established the clinic to provide quality mental health care in our community and cultivate mental health awareness.

Zahra is a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying), a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP) and a Certified Addictions-Informed Mental Health Professional (CAIMHP). Her academic training includes undergraduate degrees at Carleton University in Computer Science and Mathematics (2004) and Integrated Science (2006). A passion for the human brain led her to her Masters and Ph.D. studies in Neuroscience at the University of Ottawa’s Faculty of Medicine in 2007.


Her fascination with human behaviour and psychology culminated in her completion of a Master's degree in Counselling Psychology at Yorkville University.

Zahra actively contributes towards enhancing mental health resources for men and women in the fields of Defence, Security, Intelligence (i.e. DND, VAC, RCMP, CSIS, and CSE) and First Responders.
