I have always been fascinated by the complexity of the human mind and passionate about understanding it better in order to be the best version or myself and help others do the same.
What are our intrinsic psychological needs that we need to fulfill? How can we move beyond our deeply rooted blocks in order to move forward? How do we go from being passive agents to active creators of our own life? What are the key elements to living an authentic, happy and fulfilling life? How do we tap into our own inner strength in order to find our unique voice and express it?
During the last couple of years, I worked at Columbia University Medical Center in a research and therapeutic setting with individuals struggling with substance use issues. We were focused on understanding the types of treatments that could help those struggling break free from their self-destructive tendencies. You can see some of my published work in Publications.
During this time, I realized that I didn’t only want to be helping those suffering from mental health issues. I also wanted to serve those who are simply feeling stuck in some aspect of their lives and unable to bridge the gap between where they are and where they want to be, as well as those who are lost and want to gain clarity on how to move forward.
This shift came from realizing just how many of us don’t know or don't go after what we truly want and how many of us underestimate our innate ability to grow and shape our lives.
My understanding and approach to serving my clients stems from my own life experiences which have shaped me as well as my robust educational and work experience in the field of psychology and coaching.
