Many experienced childhood trauma that has hurt their sense of self. Others come for support during life transitions or because they are grieving.

"My clinical practice is informed by the work of Jacques Lacan and his contributions to Freudian psychoanalysis. Psychoanalysis, besides being an effective clinical practice, is fascinating. Freud's introduction of the Unconscious has forced us to question ourselves in new ways. And why shouldn't we aim to discover the truth that lies at the root of our being, especially if things are not going so well for us?"

Each person, all of us, have unique stories to share and also a part of our shared story as a family, community, nation, and world. By surfacing and examining with open eyes and ultimately, re-writing these narratives that shape and guide our lives, we can achieve genuine insights into ourselves."

"Being a therapist is one of the greatest joys in my life. It allows me the opportunity to encourage and witness the human growth process in a profound and personal way. Research shows that modern day distress is caused by isolation and disconnection, which many of us feel even in relationships. We are social creatures who thrive when we feel connected, especially to those who matter the most to us. The work and goal of therapy is to explore and strengthen our connections, first and foremost to ourselves, then to our partners, our families, or people in general."
