I believe the most important connection we have in life is the one we have within ourselves. Throughout life, we cycle between finding and losing track of ourselves. We are constantly changing, depending on the struggles we face. I believe that we need to be reminded of the empathy, warmth, and compassion we have for ourselves.
I draw from a humanistic perspective to create an integrative approach, pulling from cognitive behavioural theories, mindfulness, and somatic therapy. I believe change occurs when we are able to connect to the physical, mental, and emotional part of ourselves.
Rather than focusing solely on a diagnosis, I work to understand your unmet needs to help guide our therapeutic process. We will engage in a collaborative approach to unpack what is holding you back from living a life on your terms. I invite curiosity and challenge into our shared space to better support and guide you through this process of self exploration.
I work in-person in South Surrey and online. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
I work with individuals who are experiencing life transitions and wanting to create a better relationship within themselves. I support individuals who want to become more present in their human experience.
Some areas I work with include:
Stress and overwhelm
I hold a Bachelors degree in Psychology from the University of British Columbia and a Masters Degree in Counselling Psychology from Yorkville University.
I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) and am in good standing with the BCACC.
I have worked with a diverse range of individuals as a mental health support worker both in the public and private sphere.
As a woman of colour, raised by immigrant parents in a Western society, I recognize differences of individuals' needs across diverse backgrounds and the complexities that come along with such experiences.
I enjoy spending time doing photography, reigniting my joy of reading, and creating memories with my loved ones.
