I am here to help you on your journey.

I see therapy as a collaborative process. I help clients find what isn’t working in their lives and help them “try on” different ways of thinking, feeling, and behaving. In a sense, therapy can at times be a “trial and error” where I provide coping skills for my clients and check in to see if what I provided is useful to them. I believe that the client is the one who can ultimately tell me what does and does not work for them. Although I make it a point to use evidence-based practices, I also take into consideration each client’s diverse life circumstances when considering how I can be helpful. As a child of immigrant parents, I learned early on that upbringing, background, language, and traditions are diverse and affect people as they live their lives. Hence, I take into consideration the context of each client’s life, as well as the current world climate, when exploring issues and what would be most effective in their path for change.

“Owning our story and loving ourselves through that process is the bravest thing that we will ever do.”
