*Accepting a few more clients* Are you not feeling seen and understood? Feeling stuck between multiple worlds, messages, and norms? Unhealed trauma and unprocessed past events can make you feel stuck. Trauma can be big or small, including things that happened in your small circles or systemic trauma such as discrimination. In my therapy, I will help you understand why you feel, think, and behave the way you do from an attachment and trauma lens, break the cycle of generational or systemic trauma, and learn new effective skills to make changes in your life. I use the Person-Centred approach combined with Attachment and Trauma to work on stress coping, depression, anxiety, interpersonal relationships, and identities. This means that I see you as a whole person including environmental factors. I also draw from modalities such as Emotion-Focused Therapy, Internal Family System, CBT, and Mindfulness-based Therapy. I am a UX Researcher and Designer turned Psychotherapist. I have helped improve governments’ and organizations’ services for citizens and have extensive experience working with underserved populations, such as BIPOC, LGBTQ+, immigrants, and people with disabilities.
