  • Why did you choose to become a counsellor?
    Growing up, I could see that people around me were struggling (including me). The pain was not the same. Pain meant different things to different people. Their coping techniques were different. When sharing those stories of pain, I saw rigidity in how other people viewed those stories. Living with those wounds and suffering bought about feeling of shame, guilt, and helplessness. Those stories and experiences made me view those wounds with acceptance and kindness.
  • What excites you about your work as a counsellor?
    What truly excites me as a counsellor is the opportunity to witness stories of hope, dreams, vulnerability, and resilience. It warms my heart when I witness stories of strength co-existing with stories of suffering.
  • What do you hope for your clients to experience after their first session with you?
    Sharing those moments of pain and suffering can be overwhelming and can make one feel exposed and vulnerable, I would hope my clients to feel seen, understood and held after their first session. Additionally, I would want my clients to feel safe to explore their wounds and be their authentic self.
  • What would you wish to tell a client who is thinking about seeking counselling?
    If you are reading this, I am glad that you are taking tiny steps towards helping yourself. Being unsure about what to speak about and how to go about therapy is understandable as it is a new experience. Exploring these vulnerable parts of yourself can be scary and its okay to take it slow. What usually helps is to take a small risk and begin the process, notice what feels right for you. Your hopes and intention from this space will be clearer once you begin the process. Communicating your needs, feelings, doubts and boundaries can help you as well as your therapist to navigate this space with you.
  • Describe the relationship that you would wish to build with your client in counselling.
    I would want my clients to perceive this space of therapy as a space of warmth, acceptance, and empathy. Clients can bring in what feels comfortable and safe for them to explore in the sessions. I would respect it if they do not want to share certain experiences and set boundaries. If there comes a time, they feel ready, they can choose to bring in stories that makes them feel vulnerable and fearful to explore. I believe in exploring wounded parts of ourself with dignity and kindness.
  • In your counselling work so far, what has been your greatest learning from your clients?
    Witnessing stories of resilience and strength amid stories of pain and suffering has been my greatest learning from my clients.
  • What are some of your strengths as a counsellor that you value and appreciate?
    I like to believe that I am drawn towards the goodness that everyone holds. It helps me reflect on the greyness of life and acceptance of another human being.
  • What are some of the things you like to do in your free time?
    In my free time you will find me taking care of my plants, driving around alone late at night, listening to music, doodling, playing with strays and connecting with friends.
  • What are the areas of concern you address in counselling? Do you work with specific populations?
    I have been trained in working with clients experiencing distress, anxiety, grief, trauma, abuse, mood concerns, relationship concerns, work related concerns, life transitions and emotional difficulties. I work with clients ranging from the age of 18 and above.
  • What is the therapeutic approach you use? How would you describe it to someone who wants to consult you for therapy?
    My approach is mostly eclectic in nature which would mean that I tailor my approach according to the client’s needs. I borrow from Narrative Therapy, Solution Focused Brief Therapy, Trauma Focused Psychotherapy and Transactional Analysis. My work is trauma informed and queer affirmative. I believe that navigating larger social systems and understanding its impacts. Additionally, I make use of art and mindfulness to safety navigate client’s experiences.
  • How do you make your therapeutic practice a safe and affirmative space for queer and trans* folx?
    I communicate my views of anti-oppression stance in my sessions by using inclusive language, inclusive listening and asking questions regarding their preferences. I educate and train myself through literature and community engagements to use the lens of inclusivity in my sessions.
