About

Many people struggle with chronic pain, depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, sexual challenges, learning issues, and many other mental health issues. It is often difficult for us to trust others with intimate parts of our lives because of shame and lack of support. Know that you are not alone in your struggles, and help is readily available in the form of the mental health services offered by me.
I assist my clients by offering specialized clinical services, providing a safe space for self-expression, and sharing much-needed knowledge about mental health. I offer psychotherapy, assessments, psychoeducation, and consulting services. Treatment plans are specifically tailored with each individual's specific concerns in mind.
As a therapist, my aim is to provide a platform that is compassionate, transformative, and efficient. My clients are the experts of their own lives- I am the professional who can support their efforts towards greater self-awareness and a better quality of life. Feel free to connect with me if you need specialised and efficient care.
