What ages do you work with?
I work with clients of all ages, starting with children as young as five, teens and adults.
Who else do you enjoy and feel confident working with?
I have experience working with clients from diverse ethnic, cultural and socio-economic
backgrounds. Having a multicultural background, medical training, and clinical experience help
me understand factors contributing to my client’s mental health issues such as medical
conditions, cultural issues, and socioeconomic challenges. I have worked with clients struggling
with behavioral issues, ADD, ADHD, school refusal, anxiety, grief, PTSD, stress management,
gender identity issues, phobias, and depression.
Your clinical counseling approaches and how you help:
I tailor my approach to the specific needs of each client. I work collaboratively to help clients
identify and engage in useful coping skills to make positive changes in their lives, decrease their
symptoms and enhance their wellbeing. While working with children I emphasize the importance
of involving parents in understanding their child’s needs and use a variety of play therapy tools.
I incorporate various evidence-based therapeutic approaches, including Cognitive
Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT),
Motivational Interviewing and Mindfulness-based techniques.
What can a client expect if they work with you?
My therapy sessions are structured, and I provide education for my clients regarding their
symptoms. It is important for me to provide my clients with information so that they can make
informed decisions about their mental health. I work with my clients collaboratively to work
towards their goals and provide the client with tools in the form of teaching new coping skills and
What do you like about being a counselor?
What I enjoy about being a therapist is being in the process with clients as we work
towards their goals. It brings me joy when clients are able to face challenges by using
skills learnt during therapy sessions, utilize coping skills to being mindfully present and
see improvements in their symptoms!
If you could meet one author, who would it be and why?
I enjoyed reading the book, “The Theory of Practice of Group Psychotherapy” by Dr. Irvin D.
Yalom. In the book he describes various methods and styles of group therapy work and I would
like to meet him to learn more about his research findings in group therapy management.
Unique and fun facts about you
I am an avid runner and experiment with healthy vegetarian recipes (although not always
successful!). When I am not running or cooking, I like to kick back and turn on a Netflix show!
