Natasha Karim, MA, R.Psych
At Compass Clinic, I provide psycho-education assessments for children and adolescents. Creating a safe and comfortable space for clients during the assessment process is my number one priority, which is achieved by using a client- centered approach. I believe the assessment process should provide insight into the client’s strengths and challenges, giving meaningful recommendations to help enact change.
In 2014, I became a registered psychologist in BC. I am currently pursuing a doctoral degree in clinical psychology at Adler University. My previous experience has been primarily providing counselling to adults and adolescents experiencing anxiety, substance use, depression, and life transitions. I have also provided counselling and assessment for youth and families at Child and Youth Mental Health and comprehensive psychological and neuropsychological assessment for adults as part of my current doctoral training.
I have a special interest in working with families that have been impacted by addiction and those working through the process of acculturation. I am also passionate about volunteering within my religious community and actively assist in planning health related events for seniors and youth.
