Psychotherapy simply defined is a dialogue-based, collaborative relationship between an individual and a therapist/psychologist, in a supportive and confidential environment. The overarching goal is to help the individual live an emotionally healthier life, through identification and gradual change of unhelpful patterns of thinking, feeling or behaving (APA, 2012). 

Our emotions operate on a spectrum and interact with our current yet changing environment. Some may seek therapy because they have been feeling anxious, sad, angry, etc for a long period of time. Others, may seek therapy to address the stress that is associated with a specific situation or circumstance such as terminating a relationship, adjusting to a new job, moving across states/cultures, grieving the loss of a loved one, etc.


Signs that you could benefit from therapy include:

  • You feel an overwhelming, prolonged sense of helplessness and sadness
  • Your problems don’t seem to get better despite your efforts and help from family and friends
  • You find it difficult to concentrate on work assignments or to carry out other everyday activities
  • You worry excessively, expect the worst, or are constantly on edge
  • Your actions, such as drinking too much alcohol, using drugs, or being aggressive, are harming you or others

(APA, 2012)


Besides the above, at times individuals enter therapy just to know themselves better and for the goal of self-exploration in a supportive environment. 

This will depend on several factors such as the severity of your concern, impact on daily functioning, therapy goals, how fast we are able to make progress, among other things.

An emotional crisis can look different for each one of us. It could range from feeling sad, tearful and nervous to experiencing intense panic attacks, or having thoughts of active self-harm among others.

I meet individuals on an appointment basis as a part of ongoing care, and I will need time to respond to you if contacted after working hours. I'd be happy to set up a meeting with you to discuss treatment options: Contact Me

No, I do not prescribe medication. 

I provide career based mentoring to psychology students including queries around pursuing further education in applied psychology, international education options in graduate psychology, job prospects, and other any other areas of relevance. 

My services are completely online. As a first step, I'd like to understand your needs better through a brief 30-min consultation call. This is a great way for us to be introduced, for me to share more about how I can best support you and for us to decide whether I would be a "good fit" for your needs. You are welcome to book this meeting via my website or call/email/message me to schedule this: Contact Me

Psychotherapy has both benefits and risks. Risks may include experiencing uncomfortable feelings,  because the process of psychotherapy often brings into awareness unpleasant aspects of your life. However, psychotherapy has also been shown to have benefits such as reduction in feelings of distress, increased satisfaction in relationships, greater personal awareness and insight, increased skills for managing stress and resolution to specific problems. The extent of benefit would further depend on individuals' active effort, motivation and readiness to make gradual yet meaningful changes. 

My fee is based on the service being rendered. I also offer some sliding scale individual therapy slots for those who may benefit. Please reach out to me for additional information pertaining to fees. 

I am a trained clinical supervisor and have taught applied psychology at a post-graduate level. I am passionate about teaching, supervising and mentoring clinical trainees and early career clinicians (0-5 years post graduating). I do this through individual and group supervision modalities; and educational courses. Reach out to me if you'd like to know more about any of these services.
