Master of Marriage, Family, and Child Counselling

Tami Shahnawaz has completed a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of Manitoba and Master’s in Marriage and Family Therapy from the University of Winnipeg.

Tami has 3 years of experience at the Klinic crisis lines, and has provided individual and couple therapy in Winnipeg for several years.
She feels privileged to have worked with individuals of diverse backgrounds who speak different languages. She is fluent in Hindi, Urdu, Farsi, and English.

Tami believes that quality work comes from a good therapeutic relationship, a deep connection with the client, and when therapy is done from a place of curiosity and respect.

Tami is extremely passionate about working with couples and believes that a struggle to connect with one another is often the main issue.

She believes it is important to assist clients in connecting with themselves.

Tami finds human emotions to be complex yet extremely beautiful. The foundation of her clinical work is the Attachment Theory and the Internal Family Systems. Essentially..."Attachment theory" as a technical term means that she believes relationships are extremely important for our well being. "Internal Family Systems" understand that we are all complex beings that have parts that are happy and sad and anxious and scared and angry and so on--and we do best when the different parts of ourselves know each other and get along well.

She believes in meeting the client at their emotional level in order to do work that meets the client’s needs.

Tami has become a part of our team as of October 2016.  We are thrilled that she will be working with clients as part of our team...we are stronger because of it!

And now for something really cool...Tami introduces herself in Farsi for those who will process relationships and issues in Farsi with her:

تامي لسانسهء رشته روانشنا سي را از دانشگاه مانیتوبا و ماستری (کارشناسی ارشد) را در رشتهء ازدواج و خانواده درمانی در دانشگاه وینیپگ به اتمام رسانده است.

او احساس افتخار میکند از اینکه که با افرادی با سابقه های کاری مختلف و زبان های معتدد کار کرده است. او مسلط به زبان های  هندی ، اردو ، فارسی و انگلیسی میباشد.

او معتقد است که کار با کیفیت در نتیجهء یک رابطه درمانی خوب، ارتباط عمیق با مشتری، و  زمانیکه درمان در فضای احترام و کنجکاوی صورت پذیرد بوجود میآید. تامی در کار با زوج بسیار مشتاق است و معتقد است که تلاش  برای یکجا سازی یکدیگر اغلباً  یک مسئله اساسی است. او معتقد است که ارتباط دادن مشتریان باخود شان مهم بوده همان اشخاصی را که مشتریان به آن اهمیت میدهند. تامی احساسات انسان را بسیار پیچیده و در عین حال زیبا میداند.

پايه و اساس كار درماني وي بر اساس  تیوری دلبستگی و سیستم داخلی فامیلی استواراست. او معتقد است که برخورد با مشتریان باید به سطح عاطفی  شان به منظور برآورده ساختن ضروریات مشتریان صورت پذیرد.
