About Me

I am a strong believer in creating a safe space for people to feel their feelings and explore their inner worlds. Feelings are not something to avoid or suppress, rather they an emotional indicator of the well-being and carry important messages for us to heed.

 

As a former banker and social worker, and now a passionate counsellor in training, I have crossed paths with people of all ages and life stories. Life has taught me burdens that are shared will be lightened, and joy that is found and shared will be doubled.

As your counsellor, I am here to provide a safe space for you to share and discover your strengths and inner light throughout your counselling journey. In this space, you will have a listener who will support, learn, and unlearn together with you. You are not alone.

 

Lastly, I want to say I appreciate your courage in seeking help to process whatever is on your mind and in your heart. Healing is a journey and it’s my privilege to walk alongside you.
