Parul Shah, MSP, RSW

Founder and Psychotherapist

Embracing Empowerment was founded by Parul Shah. She is an experienced registered social worker and psychotherapist with the Ontario College of Social Workers since 2002.  Shah has three undergraduate degrees in Sociology and Social Work, and a Masters’ of Science in Psychology (MSP) from the University of Phoenix. 


Shah is passionate in empowering her clients: “When I was going through the growing pains of my life lessons, I had wished two things: to be heard & understood. I founded Embracing Empowerment Counselling Services on the basis of my life challenges on what it felt to be alone, and from there it had a creation to ensure others that when we are being heard and eventually understood, we are no longer alone in the journey of our own mental health.”
