We all face difficult situations in life when we don't know how to address a problem or who to turn to. One person who can change this is you—with the right help from a trained therapist who will actively listen and support you to find a way to soothe your ailing mind. It is definitely a scary prospect to let someone into your most troubling thoughts. This is why our therapy sessions will focus on building a trustful relationship and creating a safe non judgemental space for you to share your worries, emotions and feelings. Together, we shall analyze how to use your strengths to heal you and reach your goals.

As a mental health professional, I draw from various practices in Psychotherapy, Mindfulness, Yoga and Meditation to create a tailored therapy plan specifically for you. This approach is designed to help you process pains from the past, by challenging your limiting concepts, and to aid you to become your best self in the present moment.

People from diverse social and cultural backgrounds find great solace in seeking support from me. You have already taken the first and one of the most difficult steps—to seek support. Don't hesitate to reach out for a FREE first consultation, if you feel this is what you are looking for. I am here to listen. I am Accepting New Clients Now.
