I believe therapy is a collaborative effort. My approach is client-centered, based on the belief that every individual brings a unique outlook on personal, family and cultural experiences. In our sessions, we will explore different areas in your life that you feel may be causing you distress. We will look at the way your family/cultural history has impacted your values, behaviors, and relationships in a safe environment. My hope is that together, you will gain insight that will promote awareness and lead to a positive change

I provide counseling to adolescence, adults, couples, and families.I provide counseling on issues dealing with anxiety, depression, identity, low self-esteem, stress, life changes, individuals who are having issues adjusting to a new country/culture. Including relationship issues, gay and lesbian issues.

I have experience working with adolescence with sexually harmful behaviors and have experienced sexual trauma.
