I value each client as a unique individual, who deserves to be treated with compassion and respect.
My passion is to walk along side with people during their journey towards healing and growth. I believe that developing emotional maturity and gaining self-understanding are essential steps towards personal growth.

which hinder us from personal growth. Counselling serves
as a process to help us uncover those wounds and heal, and in the process,
gain self-understanding and self-awareness, and be empowered to make changes towards
I work with clients in the areas of:
- Depression & anxiety
- Grief & loss
- Trauma & abuse
- Self-esteem issues
- Communication skills
- Anger management
- Life transitions
- Relationship, marriage and family issues

My counselling approach is informed by Family Systems Theory, and I also integrate different models (such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Emotion Focused Therapy, EMDR) into my practice. In addition, I can also incorporate spirituality informed by Biblical faith at my clients' comfort level during the sessions.
