Meaningful Independence

Davina Tiwari MSW, RSW, CSFT

Registered Social Worker and
Certified Solution Focused Therapist

Online Therapy in Ontario and Alberta



Life can be challenging at times and you may be seeking therapy to help you process it all or figure out your next steps.


You may be struggling in your relationships with your parents/family, partner, or others in terms of managing their expectations of you and dealing with feelings of anxiety, guilt, shame, and resentment.

You could be trying to stand up for yourself, build your confidence, become more independent, and set boundaries so that you can live your life based on your own values and needs and what is important to you.

You might also be impacted by anxiety, a fear of failure, self-criticism, procrastination and avoidance, and difficulty taking on new challenges because you're worried about it not going as well as you hoped. This may mean that major changes are hard for you to cope with and can feel very stressful as you struggle through the adjustment phase. 


Exploring new experiences, behaviours, and habits scare you but you know deep down that these changes can have a positive effect on your life and you might need some support from a therapist to get there.

The clients that reach out to Meaningful Independence for online therapy most often are South Asian millennial adults (20s-40s) who would like help learning how to prioritize and take care of their own health and mental health when they are so used to being of service to others and meeting other people's needs.

More information can be found on the Therapy Services subpage.
