About My Clients

What truly ignited my path in this field was the realization that mental health is an integral part of our overall health and well-being. It's not just about treating symptoms; it's about empowering individuals to lead fulfilling lives, fostering resilience, and breaking down the stigma surrounding mental health. The ability to provide support, understanding, and effective interventions to those in need is a calling I feel deeply connected to.

My Background and Approach

I am a dedicated Holistic Mental Health Mentor, with a rich background in providing personalized guidance, workshops, and educational experiences. From November 2022 to June 2023, I passionately mentored International University students, offering individual and group support. I specialized in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). My expertise includes conducting individual psychotherapy for clients dealing with Borderline Personality Disorder, Narcissistic Personality Disorder, Depression, and Anxiety. I co-facilitated DBT skills groups, contributing significantly to the Intensive Outpatient Program. I supported post-high school graduates through psychotherapy, psychoeducation, and cognitive-behavioral therapy. My goal is to empower individuals on their mental health journey, fostering growth and resilience. Embark on a holistic mental health journey with me, where personalized mentorship meets transformative growth. Let's navigate the path to well-being together.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Embark on a journey toward mental well-being with a compassionate and dedicated mental health professional. My passion for mental healthcare was ignited by the profound realization that mental well-being is a fundamental aspect of our overall health. Beyond merely addressing symptoms, my mission is to empower individuals to embrace fulfilling lives, nurture resilience, and dismantle the barriers surrounding mental health stigma. As your guide on this transformative path, I am deeply committed to providing unwavering support, fostering understanding, and implementing effective interventions. Every step we take together is driven by a heartfelt calling to make a positive impact on your mental health journey. What motivates me? It's the profound sense of purpose, the belief that I can be an agent of change in your life, and, of course, a strong cup of coffee to fuel my dedication. Let's navigate this expedition towards mental well-being together, one empowering moment at a time. 🌈✨
