About My Clients

Beginning to explore therapy, may cause you to feel scared and somewhat apprehensive. Please know I admire your courage in taking the first steps towards wellness. If you're struggling with your feelings, life changes, unhappiness, anxiety, depression, emotional pain, feeling stuck, experiencing troubled relationships, suffering from grief and loss or simply feeling lost on your way, let's work together. We can demystify your life, while bringing you peace and creating the life you want to live.

My Background and Approach

I believe that it is a privilege to be witness to your life, even in its most challenging times. I have 12 years of professional background in Medical Social Work. In this work, I have witnessed and supported patients and their families during their most vulnerable periods in life. In our time together, you will be provided with a safe, non-judgmental space that gives you the opportunity to be fully yourself. I care deeply about you and the challenges we are faced with in this human experience. I vow to hear your story while we collaborate to make desired changes in your life, bring about awareness to certain critical areas and help you find meaning. I view you as the expert in your own life and it is important to provide you with unconditional positive regard during our sessions. I accept you as you come, entirely. I honor your story and respect your goals and wishes. As your therapist, you will find that I excel at listening, reflecting, gently nudging and providing insight.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe in the value of all human life and embrace those from all walks. As an individual, I find myself curious about diverse populations and I am genuinely intrigued by others who are different from myself. I enjoy learning and experiencing culture through my passion of art, storytelling and attending community events or diverse establishments. I care about equality, social justice and the right of everyone to live a safe, healthy and meaningful life. A well lived life is unique to each individual. I could describe myself as one who prefers to get lost in nature, standing in front of a blank canvas with a paintbrush in hand or kneeling under the summer sun in my garden. Considering my own humanness as well; these are the things that have helped me through my own personal challenges. Now they provide me the greatest sense of quality in my life. I hope that we can connect on a professional, human level and together, address the challenges you are faced with in this life.
