You are not alone

Most people experience feelings of sadness, fear, and disappointment at some point in their lives. Smart people do something about it!

If you are visiting my site, it could be that you are searching here because your life has placed your dreams and aspirations at a distance. Could you be hoping to learn new ways to overcome the problems with the help of a guide, an ally who can point you back to the path of your preferred vision of life?

I struggled with infertility and know first-hand about the psychological impact of infertility and its treatment.

I am a counselor, a guide, a diligent ally, a compassionate and respectful therapist. What sets me apart from others is my personal experience with infertility and grief, and my diverse cultural background which allows me to understand you within your unique situation. Within the safety of my practice, you can undo the impact of past troubles, trauma, depression, anxiety. With engaging and transformative dialogue, together we can make your life journey a more positive experience!

  • anxiety and depression
  • grief and loss
  • substance abuse
  • self-esteem issues
  • relationship problems
  • premarital counseling

among other general counseling issues.
