Why they became a therapist.

"I have been wanting to become a psychologist since 11th grade. You can say, it was my first love and practically the only thing, I felt I was good at. There was something about those classes in 11th grade, which made me fall in love with the subject."

What they'd like a client's first session to be like.

How they make their practice a safe and affirmative space for queer and trans* folx.

"I have been trained in the queer affirmative practices. One of the things done for online sessions, is that in the intake form we have kept the gender option as open & not given the binary categories of male or female. At the physical space, we have displayed my training certificate in this domain, displayed books & other reading materials for clients to access."
