I was always intrigued by the mind as a child, and I wanted to study the brain. Difficult life experiences during my teens exposed me to the importance of emotional support and empathy, and I wished to be equipped to pass on the kind of emotional support that I once received as a teen which saved my life.
The journeys I am able to witness as my clients’ co-traveller, their resilience, their willingness to learn and grow, and the strength they uncover in the process, all of it is extremely fulfilling and inspiring to me.
I usually urge prospective clients to use our first session as a way to gauge if my method of conversing with them, my style, the topics we touch upon, and the energy created between us matches their expectations of what therapy looks like for them. I wish to create a space where they feel safe, affirmed, and encouraged to speak their truth with ownership.
I genuinely believe that there is no greater expert in a therapy session than the client, about their own life. I have an eclectic and non-directional approach, which means I rely on the feedback given to me by my clients to tweak and tailor-make interventions that work for them. I mix techniques and strategies from different schools of psychology to make a more intuitive and personal coping mechanism for each of my clients.
The human tendency to hope for better times is the strongest motivator for effort, is a lesson I have learned through my clients. Another realization is that I can never know nearly enough about mental health or illness to ever feel overconfident in my approach.
I use an eclectic approach which means that I do not subscribe completely to one single school of psychology as I do not believe in a universal intervention that works for everyone. I believe in a collaborative intervention, designed with feedback and understanding from the client, and altered to fit their unique needs at the time.
My emails always carry my pronouns at the signature. As a queer-nonbinary person myself, I think it is extremely important to be visible as a service provider for the community, so that they may see that there are people like us everywhere. I research and write articles drawing from personal experience and then connecting it to evidence-based information that can debunk misconceptions and maybe help queer and trans* individuals feel less isolated.
