We are unique in our own way, and so are our challenges. It takes immense courage to confront these challenges and start a journey towards self-care and better quality of life. With some guidance, support, the right resources, and skills training, one can surely get to their ‘Best-Self’ and manage life’s stressors better. I seek to meet you wherever you are in your journey, and intend to provide a safe, non-judgmental, empathetic, and accepting environment for your healing and growth. Authenticity and genuineness are what you can expect from me, which makes me easy to connect at a human level. My approach carries the essence of Humanistic theories and techniques which embodies empathetic understanding, congruence, unconditional positive regard towards the individual. At the same time, it is vital for me to design the right plan to meet the uniqueness of each individual’s needs and goals. Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution-Focused Therapy, Mindfulness, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) skills training are just a few techniques that I lean towards to support you in this journey.
