Visiting this site already proves that you are insightful, brave, and courageous enough to begin your journey of introspection.
Not good enough? Invisible?
Do you ever feel that despite your best intentions, you are still falling short? That feeling, dull at first then consuming, begins to make its way up, and at this point you aren’t sure what else can be done. Or even worse, if anything can be done.
At times, feelings of helplessness can cause discouragement. Your thoughts may begin to race and become to bleak for you to feel optimistic. That underlying belief of not feeling good enough may even keep you from opening up and admitting to yourself that something isn’t right. You become stuck.
Yet, you are here now, reading this. Although difficult, you know that something has to change. You want to feel better and have already taken the first step,
We all deserve the chance to be heard and understood.
That is why I am here. I am a support for people who may have no one else. Above all, I am here for you.
I am empathetic, genuine and creative. Although it is important that I understand you, it is most important that you understand yourself.
You have strengths and are capable of developing skills to help you through this journey of exploration. I will be alongside to assist you during your time of need.
You have the power to change your life.
I believe that our thoughts are directly linked to how we perceive life experiences. The lens in which you view life will automatically impact your daily experiences.
Sometimes that means categorizing them negatively. I want to help you see your life more clearly. I want you to know that feeling this way, having these negative thoughts, isn’t a permanent state. Things can and will get better.
We will work to help you not only see more clearly, but also begin to perceive all the positive things around you. You have the key to unlock a new, healthier, more positive way of living. We will find it together.

A Bit About Me
To encourage your sharing yourself with me, I offer a few insights into my life outside the office:

- Self-control is crucial when there is a package of Oreos in front of me.
- I’d like to think I’m funny and believe laughter is therapeutic.
- As an immigrant, I am cognizant of the challenges of belonging and identifying with a particular group.
