About Me

I started my career as a scientist (PhD in biochemistry) and worked in various organizations including research, strategic planning, and commercial operations over the span of 25 years. As I became manager, I noticed I valued hearing people’s stories and helping them solve their personal problems more than I enjoyed my “regular job.” After I started working with a counselor, I realized that my “hobby” of reading psychology textbooks might actually be my calling. I went back to school for Master’s in Counseling, became a counselor, and I am currently pursuing my second PhD in Counselor Education.  

 

As you may have guessed, I love learning, and I’m highly invested in growing and developing myself and people around me. That is the basis of my counseling belief that we can all evolve into our best self if we continue on the journey of learning, exploring, challenging our existing ways of being, and seeing life from a different perspective. Therefore, I see my role as a facilitator and a champion of your growth and wellbeing, and I strive to create a warm and safe environment that would allow you to explore, reflect and flourish.
