Having worked in a variety of hospital, community, and private healthcare settings in Canada and the United States, Dr. Singh has a broad range of experience and her services help people across the lifespan with a wide range of difficulties.

She uses an integrative approach that draws from evidence-based psychological interventions in order to assess and treat a range of problems across the lifespan. She has extensive training and experience using a number of evidence-based approaches to therapy, including psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioural (CBT), interpersonal (IPT), and family systems. Dr. Singh has worked extensively in the areas of mood and anxiety disorders, family and relationship difficulties, career related stress, cultural competency promotion, immigrant/refugee acculturation, psychological trauma, and child abuse.
