MORE ABOUT ME
Since young, I was taught not to question much and just do whatever the adults told to, such as to be a good student or daughter and be obedient to parents and teachers. But I was a curious child and had a lot of questions about people and this world (even until now) which the adults will never answer those questions. This draws me into Psychology field in the first place, as it allows me to feed my curiosity on why people behave, feel, or even think in certain ways. It even draws me further into the Clinical Psychology field as I found that not many people truly understand those who are struggling with mental disorders (even the professionals themselves are still ways to go in learning it and its intervention options). As there is no clear-cut answer you can find in explaining mental health challenges, it keeps inspiring me to find out more and more on this.

Working in the government hospital, psychiatric clinic and private settings. I have experience working with people with different ethnicity and mental health concerns ranging from children to adults by providing them psychosocial support, psychotherapy and psychological assessment. I practice a variety of psychotherapies including Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) and Art Therapy. I also incorporate humanistic and existential approaches, acceptance, and mindfulness in therapy.

Life is short. It’s up to us how to carve our life with meanings and purposes in this limited period of time. And I believe everyone is unique and no one can have the same life as others. We will have to live our own way and create our own meanings that we desire and feel fulfilled. Like Haemin Sunim said, “Even products labelled limited edition are made on a production line with hundreds that are exactly the same. But there is only one you in the world.”
