She provides these services to those challenged by a variety of issues such as behavioural issues, substance abuse, anxiety disorders, loss and grief, trauma, educational and career issues, marriage and relationship issues and similar other issues.

Her youth and young adult life was spent counselling extensively with youth and young adults from schools and universities. During these years she also travelled extensively, and has counselled families, couples and youth in the USA, UK, Australia, South Africa and most of the Asian Countries which has equipped her today to understand the impact of cultural differences on relationships.
