coming to therapy is
an act of bravery

I imagine you have found yourself here because you are experiencing pain, struggle or confusion.

In therapy, you are acknowledging your struggles, you are showing up wanting to actively work through them. You are trusting someone with your vulnerability. This takes courage, and intentionality.

In my office, you can show up exactly as you are: anxious, heartbroken, enraged, confused, lonely, depressed, unsure, regretful. I am fully committed to providing a safe holding space for you; a space without judgement, a space without expectations.

I will meet you exactly where you are at and support you in growing towards where you want to go.

I am a U.S.-trained Registered Psychologist (Singapore), with over a decade of clinical experience in a variety of international settings such as The Awakening Center (Chicago, U.S.A.), Concordia Counselling (Vancouver, Canada) and KK Women’s & Children’s Hospital (Singapore). I attained a Masters in Counselling Psychology (with distinction) from Northwestern University and have received extensive training in evidenced-based, trauma-informed modalities. Read about my therapeutic modalities here.

Previously, I was a brand strategist in Asia-Pacific’s largest advertising agency. Therefore I bring to my clinical work sensitivity and insight into the pressures of the business world, as well as a true understanding of the challenges of career transitions.

I hold memberships with the American Psychological Association and the Singapore Psychological Society and adhere to the ethical codes of both.

What does a fulfilling life look like for you?

Perhaps you have been successful in many areas, but find yourself disappointed or unsure about specific challenges. Perhaps you have had questions that have remained unanswered for too long. Perhaps you are knee-deep in a stage of your life that feels confusing, overwhelming.

Therapy can be helpful to everyone at different points in our lives. No, it is not a magic bullet, nor a panacea for all human struggle, but it can be very beneficial. Even the strongest of us need help sometimes. And reaching out for help is in no way a weakness- it is the exact opposite.

I am fully committed to partnering with you to achieve the balance and well-being you seek as you journey through life.

my approach

I approach every client as an individual with an innate temperament and a distinct personality, taking into consideration your specific preferences, family history and life experiences.

I always keep in mind a holistic and integrated perspective of the whole person, considering your mental, physical, emotional and spiritual dimensions.

I take a collaborative approach with the intention to nurture your strengths and to enlarge your capacity for resilience.

I know that each person’s path towards healing and wellness is unique and will offer a tailored therapeutic experience.

Above all, I believe that being heard, seen, and witnessed non-judgmentally is one of the most healing experiences we can have.
