Life is a tough journey. There are moments you win, moments you stumble and fall, and sometimes, there are moments where you feel like the life has swallowed you whole, leaving you feel as if you don’t even know who you are or where you’re going.
My passion is rooted in helping you uncover the authenticity within your life's experience—the dreams you hold, the needs you cherish, the emotions that swell within you, the actions you take, and the connections you form with others, the world, and yourself. Amidst the chaos of daily life, it's easy to forget how to be yourself.
Losing sight of our essence can make forming meaningful connections seem daunting, and I recognize that the path to self-understanding can be challenging.
I'm here to support you on your unique journey, whether that means providing a listening ear for your pain, grief, or anger, or actively brainstorming ways to facilitate your healing process. Despite the moments of difficulties, ultimately, there will be times when you celebrate both big and small accomplishments of your self-discovery and healing. I am excited and humbled to be walking the path toward it with you.
We’re meant to fight dragons. But we’re not meant to fight them alone.

In my downtime, you'll often find me sipping coffee while engrossed in a good book, curled up with my two adorable kitties, or getting lost in the world of music. I have a passion for dancing, playing the piano, experimenting with DIY projects, and I'm currently venturing into the world of camping. Finding what I enjoy doing had taken me some time. Through my own experiences and self-discoveries, I've come to appreciate the importance of enjoying the simple pleasures in life, and I look forward to discovering more joy in the world and life!
