About My Clients
I have been in the mental health field for nearly a decade helping, supporting, and growing with individuals, couples and families on their path to emotional wellness. I have experience working with a diverse clientele and have provided treatment to adults suffering from anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, grief, trauma, self-esteem issues, chronic illness, and familial/relational conflicts.
My Background and Approach
My journey to becoming a therapist has been somewhat unconventional. I finished my undergraduate studies in Economics and worked in the corporate world for a few years before taking the risk of going back to school and becoming a psychotherapist. Through my own personal work, clinical training and experience, I have found my true calling of helping others gain emotional intelligence, cope with life’s stressors, have a better work/life balance, take risks and embrace change. I believe that every client’s uniqueness calls for a treatment approach that best fits their needs. My clinical work is informed by the eastern tradition of mindfulness as well as my training and experience in psychoanalytic, cognitive, and behavioral modalities. Having lived in different countries, I have acquired a multicultural lens that allows me to understand the unique challenges of identity, immigration, and acculturation experienced by different ethnic and cultural groups.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I believe healing occurs in the context of a trusting relationship that allows you to understand, accept, and love yourself. I offer you this relationship, trust, openness, and a space where you can explore your strengths and limitations and work towards living a meaningful, intentioned life.
