As a psychologist, I have experience working with a diverse population of clients including young adults, parents, working adults, and LGBTQ+ individuals, presenting with mild to severe clinical concerns such as self-worth and self-confidence issues, relationship issues, depression, anxiety, ADHD, OCD and BDD.
I prefer using a holistic approach based on person-centered therapy but bring in tools from my main choice of Acceptance and Commitment-based Therapy (ACT), as well as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) and more based on your needs.z
— As a person, I am passionate about helping you achieve not only a desirable therapy goal, but also to enrich your life for a much more content long-term outcome. When I work with you, I am a supporter of your progress and setbacks, and also a companion along your journey. I strive for therapy being a safe, open, and supportive place, especially to clients whose mental health, wellbeing, and safety are usually at a higher risk such as the minority races and ethnicities, gender and sexual orientation, and neurodivergent individuals.
I am a collector of hobbies, ranging from reading, crochet, and video games, to roller skating and tabletop role-playing games, like Dungeons & Dragons and Call of Cthulhu. So if you ever need a session to just share about your passions and hobbies (we all need a little lightness sometimes), I would be happy to prioritize this too!
Maybe the gift of being human is that we do not give up – even when all hope is lost.
