Psychotherapy is journey with companion that does not involved therapist giving direction and advices. The role of the therapist, is to assist the individual rediscover his/her own inner child hidden in the cellar, to revisit the history that once could not be understood, and to regain the sense of vitality and aliveness. I believe solutions to each person’s struggle are dialectic. They are not to be given but can only be achieved through the collaborative relationship in the therapy.

My style in therapy is respectful, empathetic, and non-judgmental. My theoretical conceptualization is from psychodynamic and objection-relation thinking. I respect each individual’s agenda in the treatment and facilitate the process of goal setting with each of my clients. I am committed to providing my clients with a safe and consistent environment to support them during this journey in search of their true selves. I have extensive experience working with populations from a wide range of age groups in areas such as: Depression, Anxiety, Child Emotional Disturbance, Attachment Issues, Life Transition, Grief, Traumas, Phobias, Substance Use and Psychosis. I also have special interests in multiculturalism, ethnocultural transference/countertransference, and immigrant acculturation.
