What To Expect At Your Visit
Guiding You On the Path of Self-Healing
Perhaps you're down or anxious - maybe you're unsure about the future of a relationship, or just feel that you aren't living the life you were meant to lead. Whatever your needs may be, I am here to offer support. Therapy is a process of growth and self-discovery, and in my sessions I promote behavioral transformation by encouraging a positive outlook and the adoption of new attitudes and reactions. I have the professional experience to help you get back on track.

Sarann has completed a Master of Counselling degree from Monash University, Australia. Her training and counselling techniques draw upon an eclectic range of modalities such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance Commitment Therapy, Narrative Therapy, and Exposure Therapy. She currently serves as a Committee Member for NuLife Care & Counselling Services, a non-profit organization that aims to provide mental health support to underprivileged and marginalized communities in Singapore. Sarann has also provided volunteer work for the Humanitarian Organization for Migration Economics (HOME), in support of FDW and other underrepresented groups gaining greater access to educational and mental health needs.
The transition into the field of psychotherapy was a natural progression for Sarann. With the majority of her work experience in the education sector, she understands the importance of mental health and the impact that it carries. In her previous position as an English Teacher and Citizenship Instructor, she strived to incorporate elements of self-care and promote positive thinking, not realizing at the time that this passion to support others would eventually lead her to become a therapist.
Sarann was born and raised in Seattle, Washington but has also lived in several different countries and is well equipped to work with individuals from a variety of cultural and ethnic backgrounds. She is also a mother and understands the challenges that parents can sometimes face in navigating parenthood, both in and out of their home country. Sarann seeks to provide a safe, empathetic, and judgment-free space for all her clients and ensures that each session is tailored to each individual, while simultaneously providing culturally sensitive therapy in the process. Her professional training allows her to work with clients on a variety of issues ranging from depression, anxiety, grief & disenfranchised grief, phobias, issues regarding self-esteem/self-confidence, and family-related issues. She recognizes that each client is unique and offers a counselling journey where each client is valued and respected.
