Biography

I am a third-year Counselling Psychology student completing my Master of Arts at TWU.  I approach my counselling work with clients from the existential lens, person-centered, strength-based, and trauma-informed perspectives.  I see my role as an agent of change.  I feel deeply satisfied when I witness clients actualize their inherent capacity or dream.

I was born and raised in Indonesia and moved to Canada in 2011 to study Psychology at TWU. In the process of becoming who I am today, I remember feeling lost, stuck, and confused. What really helped me was encountering the right people at the right time along the way. My personal healing journey inspired me to be compassionate about inviting clients into a sacred space to reflect on their lives in the counselling room. I consider it my greatest privilege to be invited to journey with my clients towards their healing and wholeness. I welcome clients from diverse cultural, spiritual, and personal backgrounds. 

I feel very blessed to have had the opportunity to taste life in Indonesia, Malaysia, Nova Scotia, and Vancouver. I love food in general and enjoy experimenting with different dishes and trying out new food. I also developed a new love affair with gardening, my post-COVID realization. It is my wildest dream to integrate food in the therapy setting, maybe someday.
