Have you ever wondered how life could be different? Without wearing this mask “everything is fine” when underneath you are struggling… Wondered what it would feel like to be more in control of your mood, feeling confident and even happy!

But you don’t know how to or struggle to get there. Well, I want you to know that you can get there. As famously said by Misty Copeland

“Anything is possible when you have the right people there to support you”. 

Together, we can make this journey achievable for you! Rapid Action Health was created with you in mind. One of our mottos is “no health without mental health”. Our goal is to offer a wellness package based on personal needs that is holistic, evidence based and culturally sensitive. Our client chooses the service they feel best suits them. Life is fluid so are our services!

We specialize in CRAFT which stands for Community Reinforcement And Family Training. This is an evidence-based and CBT-based approach therapy for any family member who has a loved one struggling with addiction. It is so easy to lose yourself in addiction or even in someone else’s addiction. Aside from addiction we also provide a wide range of services such as coaching, counselling and more. We work also with immigrants who are experiencing some challenges and looking to achieve mental wellness. My team and I have faced similar challenges during our migration and transition period in Canada.

What can you expect from us?

My team and I provide a safe and non-judgemental space for you to heal. We additionally provide holistic, culturally sensitive, family, and person-centered care. We are a multilingual team that adheres to a strict confidentiality code and ensures your privacy is maintained. For your convenience, we have an online booking system to book a free 20-minute consultation to avoid phone tag.
