Who am I?
Moving to Malaysia has been a dream of mine to help aid the community with mental health. As a half Norwegian, half Malaysian, I have lived in Sweden, Saudi Arabia, Singapore and the United States. I was immediately attracted to the Mont Kiara area to practice due to its melting pot of diversity.
I am coming from living in the United States for the past 15 years. I am a mom of two and enjoy photography, reading and spending time traveling with my family.
How do I Practice?
I use a client-centered approach integrating the principles of cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy and relational therapy to emphasize a client’s innate strengths. I value building a collaborative relationship with my clients to approach treatment together and build a supportive non-judgmental environment.
I strongly believe in maintaining the confidentiality and privacy of my clients.
