By nature life is imperfect, however many people believe that in order to be happy their life must be free from sadness and pain. There are many ways to define happiness and one doesn’t necessarily have to feel completely free from suffering to live a meaningful life.
Ikigai Psychology aims to balance different domains of life by helping you define what matters to you. Through using a holistic approach to mental health care and wellbeing, we hope to help you find creative solutions to help you feel better connected to yourself and your community.

The way that society has taught you to think about life and happiness can sometime lead to confusion and suffering. Improving your mental health at times involves un-doing what you learned about what is suppose to make you feel "happy".
Change in life circumstances, illness, relationship breakdowns, career changes, death of a family member and childhood traumas can really impact a person's sense of mental health and well-being. Despite this tragedies alone aren't what causes mental health problems such as depression and anxiety. In fact, in can be everyday life experiences or uncertainty that can lead to a feeling of of stuck-ness, overwhelm and frustration especially if you feel you are not "succeeding" or meeting your own or others expectations.
Therapy is a safe place where you won't be judged. You don't have to filter yourself, you can speak your truth and let your thoughts untangle so you can feel heard and supported. You will learn practical strategies to develop a better relationship with yourself and others so that you can move forward towards your valued direction in life.
Experienced in Treating:
"I believe everything is transient, nothing lasts forever, including the difficult experiences we have in life. Sometimes what we need to do is to let go of control, trust the human experience and take the plunge.When we are willing to feel the discomfort and let go of every things else, that's when we are most capable to grow"
