I work best with people who want to change their lives but feel stuck, confused and paralyzed by fear and anxiety. They feel dishonest with themselves and frustrated for giving up on their true desires. However, deep inside they know they can do better. This struggle is their most intimate enemy. They feel alienated and unhappy sometimes in their relationships, work, profession, and in their daily lives in general. I help them to feel more confident about themselves, motivated to take control over their lives and to make the changes they want to make.

My work invokes two key factors; empathy for the client throughout the session and appreciation for their unique struggle. Clients can be honest with themselves when they sense that their therapist can feel their distress from inside and is able to help them access what drives their difficulties in living.

I pay close attention to my clients’ wants, needs and fears. Clients feel safe, understood and nurtured when they are appreciated as a whole, not a symptom or clinical diagnosis. I pay attention to my clients’ culture and upbringing since it has significant impact on who they are today.
