What was your path to becoming a therapist?

It was an exploration through the lay experience of helping people in church. It's followed by professional training, and a continuation of learning to fine-tune my skills sets.

What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?

The public will be more embracing towards people with mental illness or mental health situations.

What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?

Annually training for skills/personal development.

What advice would you give to someone who is hesitant to try therapy?

If you are not physically well, you can see a medical doctor but if you have personal struggles, seek therapy.

What should someone know about working with you?

I work primary with people going through mental health issues, couples relationships, and traumas.

How do your own core values shape your approach to therapy?

Everyone will experience moments of disillusion, disappointments, and despair. It is important to take a pitstop and through the process of counselling, you are able to explore your concerns and develop your goals to align with your needs. Seeding minds are like-minded people who are trained in the helping profession, providing quality psychological consultation for consumers. Being holistic in its approach, therefore psychological intervention involved emotional, spiritual, behavioral, relational, and mental capability. Thus, the goal is to allow the experience of healing in the process.
