About…

Life is beautiful, but it comes with pain. I believe our role here on earth is to become the highest version of ourselves and we all hold the means to do so. I always tell myself, “It’s okay, this is your first time here. Take it slow. You are not supposed to be perfect, you are learning everything for the first time”. Sometimes things happen that don’t make any sense and we as humans can find it difficult to rationalize why we face certain challenges, or how to overcome them.

I am a strong believer that we are lifelong learners and sometimes we learn best by building connections with others, in this case, me, your therapist. By working together in a safe, confidential and non-judgmental space, we can explore absolutely anything and everything that is on your mind. Together we can help bring you closer to the highest, most healed version of yourself.   I favour an integrative approach to therapy, where we can pick and choose pieces of certain theories and practices that fit best to your needs.

I take a trauma-informed, and culturally informed stance in my practice to ensure your comfort and understanding. I like to incorporate Solution-Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, and Narrative therapy and pull on your strengths to make meaningful changes.  

A little bit about me: I am a second-generation Macedonian (a tiny little country in the heart of Southeastern Europe). I have years of experience researching vulnerable populations and working with people from diverse communities. I am a foodie, I love my friends and I have two Bengal cats. Currently, I’m learning Spanish by watching movies and listening to podcasts. I own a small anime candle business and its super fun to do as a side hustle!
