Among many other fields I am an expert in: I would like to shed a light on these issues that we encounter in ourselves, in family and in friends on a daily basis but are ashamed to speak up and confront them and get them the help they need.

  • Narcissism: The word narcissism gets tossed around a lot in our selfie-obsessed, celebrity-driven culture, often to describe someone who seems excessively vain or full of themselves. But in psychological terms, narcissism doesn’t mean self-love—at least not of a genuine sort. It’s more accurate to say that people with narcissistic personality disorder (NPD) are in love with an idealized, grandiose image of themselves. And they’re in love with this inflated self-image precisely because it allows them to avoid deep feelings of insecurity. But propping up their delusions of grandeur takes a lot of work—and that’s where the dysfunctional attitudes and behaviors come in Narcissistic personality disorder involves a pattern of self-centered, arrogant thinking and behavior, a lack of empathy and consideration for other people, and an excessive need for admiration. Others often describe people with NPD as cocky, manipulative, selfish, patronizing, and demanding. This way of thinking and behaving surfaces in every area of the narcissist’s life: from work & friendships to family &love relationship


  • Depression:  Depression is a common mental health condition that affects millions of people worldwide. It can cause a persistent feeling of sadness and loss of interest in activities once enjoyed. These feelings can interfere with daily life, making it difficult to function at work or home. symptoms of depression vary widely. They can include changes in sleep patterns, appetite, and energy levels. Some people experience physical symptoms like headaches or digestive issues, while others might struggle with concentration and decision-making.
    The causes of depression are complex and multifaceted. Genetics can play a role, as can life events such as trauma, loss, or stress. Biological factors, including changes in neurotransmitter levels, are also significant contributors. Treatment for depression often involves a combination of approaches. Psychotherapy, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), can help individuals understand and manage their thoughts and behaviors. Medications, like antidepressants, can be effective in correcting chemical imbalances in the brain.
  • Lifestyle changes can also make a big difference. Regular exercise, a healthy diet, and sufficient sleep are essential for mental health. Social support from friends and family can provide comfort and encouragement during tough times.| It’s important to seek help if you or someone you know is experiencing depression. Early intervention can improve the prognosis and help prevent more severe outcomes. There is no shame in asking for help and taking steps toward recovery.



  • 1st generation and 3rd culture kids don’t tend to identify with the country they’re living in or the country they’re from or the country their parents are from. You can probably imagine how this befuddling background might give rise to confusion. But before discussing the issues that TCKs face, I think it is crucial to look at their families, which are the filters through which kids are initially introduced to culture.A major factor that determines how kids adapt to cultural challenges is their family relationships. A secure attachment provides an incredibly strong base for children. Therefore, the best gift we can give our children is not an iPad or strategies for dealing with cultural challenges. The best gift we can give our children is our empathic presence in their lives. Being present with our children, our calm attention, and our empathy will help them develop the inner resilience they need to cope with cultural challenges that TCKs face


  • What is the difference between expats and immigrants?  It’s easy to just compare dictionary definitions of the two, but the way people use the two terms is indicative of the way immigration and the people undertaking it are perceived. Have you ever wondered why some people who move to work in a different country are called expats while others are called immigrants? The labels can’t reflect distinct purposes behind the move, because both groups leave their previous stomping grounds to seek better conditions elsewhere. Beyond that, there are often underlying reasons that some people distinguish between the two (spoiler alert: in many cases, it’s xenophobia).
