Hello, my name is Ruzina, I’m glad you are considering me as your therapist, which is an important choice, as the quality of the relationship between the therapist and client is the essence of a good outcome of therapy. I am here to go on a journey of self-discovery with you with any difficulties that may arise on the journey.

I understand that at times your family and friends may be part of the problem, this is where I come with fresh eyes into your situation, an open heart, and much experience and strength to help you regain your sense of who you are. Sometimes people find it difficult or uncomfortable to put their feelings into words, make sense of what they are going through and need help & support from someone outside of their personal life. This is where we can explore things together to create a clearer picture.
