About


Relationship is the foundation of what I do. I recognize that culture affects who 
we are and incorporate such knowledge into my work. My definition of "culture" is broadly defined. It is not only about ethnicity, but your background, upbringing, values, beliefs, etc. I believe that we have autonomy to make our choices. For many people, however, choices were stripped from them at a very early age. In my work, I help people regain a sense of who they are and take back the choices and will to move forward. I provide a safe and supportive environment for you to explore and work collaboratively with you to achieve solutions and inner peace.

After over a decade in my profession, I have gained clarity as to what I am passionate about. The answer is "relationship" and I am the co-author of your "relationship building" chapter. Here are the three types of relationships I can be of help to you:

1. Relationship with yourself
In my life, I have been helped and mentored by many good caring people. They helped me when I was discouraged and desperate. I want to pay it forward. I love working with early career professionals. So many have self-doubts, fear of failure, and dread for the future. Our work is to examine your relationship with yourself, your values, and your beliefs. You can learn something about yourself by looking back in the past and how you want to move forward in the future. 

2. Relationship with your partner
Far too often, we focus on our careers, children, and other things. The last person we care about is our partner. Next thing you know, you drift apart and simply co-exist. You have no fascination and admiration you had in your eyes when you were first in the relationship. I would like to help you rebuild that passion with your partner.

3. Relationship with other people
Without a positive relationship with yourself, it is extremely challenging to trust and maintain fostering relationship with others. Because we are hard-wired for social connection, it is essential to be in relationships. As we work on your relationship with yourself, people usually start to have a desire to connect with others again. Much of my work has been with people recovering from addiction. Their lives are shattered. Relationships were destroyed. Stopping the use of drugs and alcohol is only the beginning. Are you ready to rebuild your life? Let's walk on this journey together. . .
