In her words “Therapy for me is about taking action to solve problems and finding a sense of meaning and purpose amidst challenges. Athoz gives me a platform to blend psychological theory and research in therapeutic work to ultimately help clients with self-discovery and personal growth. A therapist is like a personal trainer, and therapy is like an emotional body-building. My life mission is to make the process of multi-layered counseling a more workable model. To quote Gandhi: “A man is but the product of his thoughts what he thinks, he becomes.” so working from this principle, in this modern world, this is a crucial time to make therapy more convenient and approachable.”
