I have extensive training in Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) to help individuals identify and modify irrational thoughts and thinking patterns to improve their overall mental health and enhance personal growth. Through personal and professional experiences, I have learned that much of our daily anguish is fabricated by our minds and influenced by our perceptions. As Buddha perfectly puts it, "We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves." Through techniques of mindfulness and increased self-awareness, we gain control of our minds and ultimately achieve contentment.

As a counselor, I believe we play a crucial part in our clients’ lives in terms of providing therapeutic support and exemplifying healthy mental health habits. I strongly emphasize self-care in my sessions, because we can only help others if we can help ourselves. Counseling becomes a platform where you gain a new purpose in life, increase self-acceptance, learn to manage stress better, improve interpersonal relationships, and more. Much of our life is shaped by the quality of our thoughts and attitudes towards life. Thus, you cannot expect positive outcomes with a negative mind.
