Tahira Gulamani

MA, Doctoral Candidate

Tahira Gulamani is a PhD Candidate in Clinical Psychology at the University of Toronto. She received an Honours Bachelor of Science degree in Biology and Mental Health as well as a Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology. Currently she is completing her residency at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH). 

Tahira has extensive research and clinical training focused on depression, anxiety disorders, eating disorders, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), and borderline personality disorder (BPD). Additionally, she treats a wide range of mood and anxiety disorder symptoms including rumination, panic, and excessive worry, trauma and related disorders, impulsivity, emotion dysregulation and various forms of life stress (e.g., burnout, work and school stress, and life transitions). 

Tahira has worked with individuals with OCD with a wide range of presentations, including obsessions and compulsions related to contamination, harm, sexuality, relationships, health and perfectionism. 

Tahira’s clinical practice is rooted in a combination of evidence-based interventions with a primary focus on cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT), exposure and response prevention (ERP), dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT), inference-based CBT (I-CBT) and mindfulness based cognitive behaviour therapy (MBCT). However, because each therapeutic relationship is unique, she will also incorporate additional strategies and skills from other modalities as required. 

Tahira has worked with adults and teens at a variety of clinical sites in the GTA including the Sunnybrook Frederick Thompson Anxiety Disorders Centre, UTSC Health and Wellness, St. Joseph’s Hamilton Eating Disorder Clinic and CAMH.

Tahira’s approach to treatment emphasizes an empathetic, non-judgemental and collaborative therapeutic relationship where treatment is tailored to the client’s unique circumstances. Treatment is focused on developing a shared understanding of the client’s struggles and helping them develop new skills to reach their goals. She welcomes individuals from all backgrounds, cultures, sexual orientations and abilities.

Outside of work and school, Tahira enjoys reading, playing with her two dogs (Lily and Leo!), watching and attending sporting events, and teaching herself to crochet!
