Story of the Name, Sunflower

I have a profound admiration for flowers, especially sunflowers. Sunflowers are remarkable in their ability to unfailingly turn their faces toward the sun, regardless of the challenges they face. Regardless of your favorite flower, each of us is inherently beautiful. However, when life becomes difficult, the seed of our authentic selves can become obscured or obstructed. Without the proper care and nourishment, we may lose our way in the journey to stand tall and face the sun. I aspire to embody the spirit of a sunflower, radiating a vibrant smile and a colorful presence to brighten your day, helping to unblock your authentic self to flourish. Irrespective of your flower preference, remember that you are born to blossom.


I firmly believe in the inherent self-energy and the wisdom that every individual possesses from birth. My practice is significantly influenced by the principles of Self Psychology and Attachment theory. I hold the conviction that the humanism of a clinician and the quality of the therapeutic relationship far outweigh specific skills. If you are seeking to work with an experienced clinician who genuinely offers compassion and empathy, we warmly invite you to our Sunflower healing harbour.
