“In my early professional years, I was asking the question: How can I treat, or cure, or change this person? Now I would phrase the question in this way: How can I provide a relationship which this person may use for his own personal growth?” – Carl Rogers

Steered by the transformative philosophy of Carl Rogers, my mission as a Clinical Mental Health Therapist is to foster growth, resilience, and self-understanding.

My clinical focus encompasses a wide range of clients with diverse backgrounds, including adults, immigrants, and refugees navigating complex challenges such as depression, anxiety, life transitions, and relationship issues. Person-Centered Therapy forms the backbone of my approach, where I strive to illuminate the unique potential within each individual for self-understanding and transformative growth.

In the therapeutic space, I ensure an empathetic and non-judgmental environment, fostering an open dialogue and active client participation. Integrating a Mindfulness-Based approach, I empower clients to nurture present-moment awareness, cultivate self-compassion, and devise healthier strategies for coping with psychological distress. This practice resonates with the tenets of Person-Centered Therapy, emboldening clients to develop emotional resilience and a profound understanding of their unique life patterns and beliefs.

As a fervent advocate of multiculturalism, I value the imprint of individual experiences and cultural backgrounds in shaping one’s mental health. I honor my clients’ diverse narratives and journeys, recognizing the invaluable lessons they impart.

With a personal history as an international graduate and a non-immigrant, I possess a unique sensitivity toward immigrant and refugee populations. I understand the intricate stressors the individuals from these populations undergo, including acculturation, displacement, trauma, and resettlement, and offer culturally informed therapy that respects these experiences.

My commitment to professional development ensures that I am consistently at the cutting edge of advancements in mental health research and evidence-based practices. Learning, for me, is an ongoing process that enriches both my clinical work and my personal growth.

Beyond clinical practice, I harness my research skills to impact the advancement of counselor education programs. I am particularly driven to develop effective multicultural training protocols for counselors-in-training, ensuring they are well-equipped to serve diverse populations with empathy, competence, and respect.

I am currently a fourth-year international doctoral student in the Counselor Education and Supervision program at Western Michigan University (WMU). My intellectual pursuit began with earning a Master of Arts degree in Counseling Psychology from WMU in 2020.
