About me

I originally come from Zimbabwe, but I grew up in the diverse international community of Dubai. Now I'm based in the Netherlands, where I completed my Bachelor of Science in Psychology and later earned a Master’s Degree (MA) in Counseling Psychology. My experiences have made me open-minded and understanding, and ready to build authentic client-therapist relationships.

Growing up, mental health was not at the forefront of my life. The traditional upbringing I experienced did not foster open conversations about seeking help from a professional. This created pivotal moments for me, sparking curiosity about human behavior. I initially began by asking questions about myself and then expanded my curiosity to those around me. I observed that there was always more to the story, igniting my journey into psychology and the path toward becoming a therapist. It wasn't until I turned 21 that I attended therapy myself and truly grasped its benefits.

I opened my own practice in 2023 https://www.beyondborderstherapy.com/ where clients can seek online therapy from the comfort of their homes.

My approach

I assist individuals in their mental health journey by customizing therapy using evidence-based methods. With a background of having lived in various countries, I possess a unique understanding of the challenges faced by expats and global citizens. I support those struggling with life transitions, the anxiety of adapting to a new environment, and the challenges of moving away from home. Additionally, I assist individuals ready to confront issues such as relationship difficulties, family dynamics, habit-changing, and body image concerns, confidence, self-esteem, and career changes.
