You have made one of the hardest decisions of your life, and that is seeking help. It is not always easy to reach out to others and share your story. So, allow me to congratulate you for taking this important step towards your well-being and self-fulfillment. Change will not take place unless an individual wants to and is ready to create change. However, a safe, empathic, encouraging, and respectful environment can help you get there, and these are the values of Perspectives and myself. As your therapist, I will strive to help you explore different perspectives of your life stressors, support and empower you to embrace yourself positively, and help you to uncover what makes you feel fulfilled and balanced. Allow me to help you make a change today and explore the endless possibilities of healing.
I am naturally a non-judgmental and empathic person. My goal is to provide a welcoming, safe, and compassionate environment so you can feel comfortable during the therapeutic process. I would like Perspectives to be your second home where you can come to unwind, release negative thoughts and energy, feel empowered and fulfilled, and learn the necessary tools and techniques to deal with your daily life stressors.
What do you love doing more than anything in the world?
I love to spend time with my family and friends. There is nothing better than sipping on a cup of tea/coffee and just gossiping away.
What is the self-care strategy you use more often?
Praying, yoga, setting up a spa day, watch a feel-good movie, reading, and cooking.
What was your dream job when you were in elementary school?
Become a doctor and save the world. And then science courses hit and brought me to reality. At least I am not so far away from that goal!
What is your favorite movie of all time?
I don’t really have one favorite movie. I love any movie that sends a good & moral message and makes me feel good as a human being.
Describe your ideal vacation? Has it happened yet?
My ideal vacations are to visit the islands of Greece and explore Switzerland during winter. Hopefully it will happen soon!
What is the most delicious meal that you can imagine?
I love and live for anything that includes cheese. I might have been a rat in my past life. Who knows? I also have a sweet tooth so I never say no to sweets.
