Professional Statement

Heading

Almost everyone has experienced feeling stuck in a situation: arguing with a partner for the 20th time over the same issue; feeling overwhelmed by everything that is going on in life; or struggling with that inner critique that keeps saying, “you are not good enough!” In these situations, we can feel like it is impossible to move on or to create change. Sometimes, making a shift may seem like a good idea, but when we start to work towards change, it suddenly feels scary and overwhelming. 

Approach to Therapy

My role as a therapist is to empower you to find strength within yourself and to walk with you through your journey of change. I will meet you where you are and provide a safe, non-judgmental environment for you to explore your thoughts and feelings -- to discuss any topic that you need help with. I believe that ultimately you are the expert of your own life, and that you have the resources within and around you to cope with different life stressors.

My strength and experience include having engaged with clients across diverse background, age, gender and sexual orientation. I combine several approaches in my work including but not limited to Solution Focused, Gottman Method, Internal Family System, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR).

Education & Clinical Experience

I received my master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Mount Mercy University, Iowa. I am in the process of completing my hours to become a US-Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the state of Iowa. Prior to returning back to Malaysia to join Rekindle as a clinical intern, my supervised clinical experience in the U.S.A. was as a therapist at Heart and Solutions, LLC. I am also in the process of completing my second masters in counselling and plan on becoming a registered counsellor in Malaysia as well.

Before I became an associate at Rekindle Therapy, I was a clinical intern at Rekindle Academy for two years. During my internship, I worked with couples and families on relationship conflicts, parents who struggled with children’s behaviours, children who had been abused or bullied, adolescents who struggled to cope with school performance and family relations. I also worked with individuals with a variety of concerns, such as anxiety, depression, eating disorders, self-harm, and gender and sexuality issues. I also received clinical direct supervision from Dr. Johnben Loy, founder and clinical director of Rekindle Therapy and AAMFT Approved Clinical Supervisor.

About Me

When I am not working with clients or attending classes, I enjoy swimming, spin class, and going on trips with friends and family. My personal philosophy is, “Show up worthy and courageous”, which is to remind myself to trust myself and show up in my work, in my relationships, and in life.
