Dear Reader,

Well done to you for taking this step to explore your life, and having the courage to wish for a better way of living it. Blake Psychology is home to a wonderful bunch of highly trained and experienced therapists, who happen also to be amazing and warm human beings. As we all share an equally strong commitment to helping people navigate the troubles they might experience, I will briefly present my ways to help you decide if you want me to be your therapist.

My name is Ven and over the years as a helping professional I realized that people care less about clever language and elaborate techniques and more about receiving sincere love and compassion, living hope and courage, honest feedback, and new perspectives.

My graduate training in psychology and also psychotherapy, and my experience working on two continents with culturally diverse populations, in many settings, add more tools and approaches to answer the unique needs of my clients. However, what proved to help the most is having the mutual trust to explore and work on intimate, sometimes painful topics, step-by-step. Together, we invite your strengths and natural wisdom to take the steering wheel of your life, letting go of the grasp of your fears and limiting self-beliefs. Together, we also help you chose and create new habits towards better ways of being.

I will act as a co-pilot with a map on your journey, assisting you to navigate through different landscapes: the wilderness of the outside world and its daily demands for attention, and also the wilderness of your emotional realm within, that often overwhelm and detour us from goals and happiness.

You are the Captain that makes the decision on the course, handles the sails, and at times is sweating on the oars. The hard work always pays in the end and your happiness is worth the effort!
Please feel free to reach out, if you want me on board.

Yours truly,
Ven
