About My Clients

I work with a variety of clients to navigate challenges, foster self-growth, and develop new insights into life. Active listening will be a big part of our work together, and I am a good listener. I care about your most presenting concern and the work continues when we tackle our first challenge. I am here to guide your learning in emotional growth and help you become an independent learner of your needs.

My Background and Approach

My current approach includes a mixture of psychodynamic and person-centered techniques with a relational focus. I specialize in working with clients who struggle in their relationships and family life, and I help connect the dots between the presenting concerns and the roots of the problems. I also use solution-focused techniques for short-term changes.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that therapy serves a similar function as education: it nurtures abilities, raises self-awareness, and maintains the connection with human nature. We may all have been in school for education and career goals (and for a really long time), but how much do we learn in school about our emotions and feelings? Therefore, I aim to provide an experience that brings out curiosity inwards and outwards.
