About

The road to good mental health can be rife with obstacles consisting of navigating social systems, relationships and uncertainties. Years ago, I studied elements of society by riding an entire train route for a school assignment. While traveling through diverse city landscapes and observing fellow travelers, I observed how human behavior changed with time and settings. This experience inspired me to reflect on my own identities and how I interact and engage with the world around me. This observation also helped me define my career path as a supportive guide for others, as the journey to self-discovery should not be an isolated one.
I specialize in working with people around trauma, identity development, anxiety, depression, personal boundaries, mindfulness and negative thinking. I am also very passionate about helping individuals build self-esteem, explore values, improve communication skills and identify unhealthy patterns.
As a therapist, I like to operate through a holistic lens that highlights unique individual experiences and social backgrounds. Through our joint effort, we will explore your needs and work towards individual and collaborative goals. I am passionate about being a therapist and strive to help others know the true joy that can come from engaging in therapy.
