My Approach to Helping
Dealing with a major life or cultural transition such as these can leave you feeling scared, anxious, confused, or disoriented. It might be hard to know what to do next, especially if the change in your life was sudden, unwanted, or much different than you imagined it would be.
Starting over again is one of the toughest things you can be asked to do. Most of us, at one point in our lives, are forced to do exactly that, and usually, we're unprepared for all the little changes that come with the big transitions.
My Role as a Therapist
Whether you're reeling from the loss of a loved one, the separation from your family, or the severance from a job, taking control of your new circumstances is an important part of turning around your life.?
Don't put this off. Learn to see change as a good thing.
My Therapy Focus
My focus in therapy is to listen unconditionally, give new perspective to consider, help others to feel their feelings and clear their thoughts and to continue to support, encourage, and applaud changes made in therapy.
My Guiding Ethical Principles
As a therapist, I commit to helping others to restore hope, find new meanings and visions in life and achieve full potentials amidst life's challenges, losses and transitions.
How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist
While the details of a person's situation may be different from others, it helps when someone understands what we are going through and knows how emotions could take over our lives. Growing up as a young adult, I learned to overcome my own fears. One of the first thing I discovered was that it helped a lot to talk it through with an objective listener. But most of all, I needed to be opened to new ways of thinking, to be more positive instead of negative. Getting to this point has definitely been a winding road, with some pretty big potholes along the way. I can most definitely relate to your struggles with uncomfortable emotions.
