When I went looking for a therapist, I was terrified. This person was to hear of my fears, shame, anger, guilt, helplessness, and a host of other taboos and unspoken emotions that had been with me for the longest time. But I finally found the courage to make that first call, and I can only be thankful that I was met with understanding and compassion.
As a therapist now, I take a non-judgmental and open approach, understanding that it can be an overwhelming and vulnerable time for the other person. I hope to provide the same compassion and gentleness that I was met with when I was looking for help.

What should I consider when looking for a therapist?
Find someone who will listen to you, but more importantly, work with you through your individual psychological makeup, unique historical factors, and influences from your current circumstances. I believe therapy is a collaborative process in which you are the specialist in your life, and having psychological support can truly enhance the way you approach issues that matter to you.
Together, you and your therapist can tackle the things that seem so overwhelming and overbearing, those issues, which may be too great to face alone. You can explore how to make improvements or adjustments in key areas of life. Psychological expertise can provide valuable coaching and guidance through this process, defining goals and targets that are both meaningful and personal to you.
What I Say to People Concerned about the Therapy Process
Therapy can seem to be a scary idea. We can't deny that the society we live in does stigmatize the process, and those who may need it. Discrimination does still exist in some situations. However, therapy is something that we do for ourselves, to help us achieve our long-term goals and vision of our lives. It may involve taking ownership of things we don't particularly like about ourselves, or looking at areas in our lives that may evoke difficult emotions.
However, what many people overlook is that this is only one part of the therapy process. Therapy also involves achieving little 'wins' and meeting goals that we set for ourselves, while also becoming more resilient or creative in dealing with the things that were once difficult for us. It is not just a process in which we vent our frustrations and failures, but also a place where we can get a vital first taste of success in approaching the same difficulties differently, trying novel and personalized solutions, and seeking out support we didn't realize we had.
My View on the Nature of 'Disorders'
One of my personal passions is to work with individuals on their personal values and meaning in life. No matter what your age or issues ('disorders' in medical parlance), we all seek to find fulfillment, satisfaction, and gratification in our everyday lives. While such disorders may take their toll on us, with a little ingenuity and customization, many individuals eventually find their preferred ways to engage with their environment, the people around them, and most importantly, with themselves.
Psychological support can work as a clinical tool, but more importantly, it can help us discover potential talents and our true passions in life. Streamlining our efforts and intentions, psychological care provides a rounded approach in many instances and in any stage of life, while taking into account each person's unique characteristics.
