I have completed a Bachelor’s degree in Life Sciences and during that time, I enjoyed my psychology electives to the extent that I went on to complete my second Bachelor’s degree in Psychology. I went on to complete a Master’s in Occupational Therapy. Occupational therapy is a form of rehabilitation through overcoming mental health barriers to perform our daily activities. In other words, “we are what we repeatedly do”, and the goal is to enable you to “do” what you need and want to get the most out of life.
My educational background allows me to look at mental well-being from a holistic approach. The holistic model of health care is based on treating the "whole" person, taking into account the mental, emotional, physical, social and spiritual states of well-being. Holistic health is actually an approach to life - it emphasizes the connection between mind, body and spirit. Rather than just focussing on the illness, this approach considers the whole person and their interaction with their environment. This model supports the idea that factors, such as stress, nutrition, relationships, physical health, spirituality, etc, can impact the body and brain in diverse ways. We may work together to create a plan to support your recovery towards higher quality of life.
My practice is not limited to formal counselling/psychotherapy, as I would also like to explore other relevant lifestyle interventions, such as sleep, stress management, nutrition, exercise, relaxation, etc. The goal of my practice is to work together to equip you with tools to self-manage any mental health barriers.
I focus on depression, anxiety and stress. I employ tools such as cognitive behavioural therapy, dialectical behavioural therapy and mindfulness-based approaches. I am also a huge advocate for positive psychology - focussing on what we are doing right as people, instead of focussing on barriers and weaknesses. Even without a diagnosed mental illness, you may be interested in taking a proactive approach to your mental well-being. We may work together to enable you to lead a meaningful and fulfilling life, to cultivate your potential and enhance your experiences.
I strive to offer services that are affordable and convenient. I am flexible when it comes to connecting - we can meet in my office, online, or at a location of your choice (your home, park, coffee shop, etc). By offering services in-office and online, we can connect whenever, wherever, at a flat rate of 80$/hr.
