I seek to approach therapy with compassion, openness, and collaboration. I believe that everyone comes with their own history, challenges, triumphs and troughs, that create complex and at times overwhelming emotional experiences. We may have little control over the environments we live in, and are simply doing the best we can with what we know and have. Sometimes, that may cause us to feel a whole range of difficult emotions ranging from confusion to anxiety and loneliness. I aim to work with clients to unpack and understand both recent or longstanding emotional, psychological, and behavioural patterns and experiences, based on therapeutic goals. I hope to support clients through their emotional struggles, and help build resilience through greater awareness and ability to sit with and process difficult emotions. Finally, I believe that therapy can be an empowering space for clients to discover and choose more meaningful ways of being, and being with others.

I have worked with adolescents and adults dealing with various difficulties across diverse settings in Australia and Singapore. This includes depression, anxiety, trauma, OCD, grief and loss, childhood traumas, self-esteem, emotion dysregulation and interpersonal challenges. I combine evidence-based practice with a holistic and individualized approach, drawing on training in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Schema Therapy, Cognitive Processing Therapy for PTSD, Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), family-based interventions, and mindfulness-based approaches.
