From time to time, you might find yourself in a moment not living your life to its fullest. You want to be happy, feel satisfied, yet you don't know where to start. This may sound cliche but you are not alone in feeling this way. We often get stuck because we are only focused on the problem.
For last 5 years, I have been working with clients from different age groups - children, adolescents, and adults. Whatever the reason(s) that have led you here, I would be honoured to work alongside you in your courageous journey.
Because everyone has different concerns and various personalities, every session is unique. I structure each session to best meet your needs using a strength-based, integrated approach that includes cognitive-behavioral, solution-focused, narrative and humanistic interventions as well as art-based counselling.
My role as a therapist is to identify the best conditions where you can fully understand yourself, learn to challenge yourself and come up with feasible plans to reach your goals. I also emphasize a non-judgemental approach to understand your perspective. Sometimes, it is difficult to share your stories with others and you may feel the sense of shame from your previous mistakes. However, it is important to acknowledge that everyone makes mistakes, and you may be already in the process of change. Making mistakes help us understand who we are and what we want. My personal and professional goal is to assist you in understanding yourself.
As a bilingual counsellor myself, I have learnt to embrace various cultures here. In your counselling sessions with me, I will be providing a safe and nurturing environment, where I can assist you to understand your mental and emotional health better. The connection you have with your therapist is of paramount importance, so I offer a free initial phone consultation to ensure the right fit for you.
I look forward to meeting you!
