I believe that our experiences and our environment play a key role in how we navigate and survive our struggles. For this reason I find a healthy therapeutic relationship integral to understanding and exploring difficult emotions and relationship dynamics. I take a holistic perspective when working with individuals and couples, and consider biological, social and spiritual factors when trying to understand others. My priority is that we create an open and safe space in which you can freely explore your vulnerabilities and make greater meaning of your experiences.
I utilize a strength-based approach to empower clients towards becoming their most authentic selves. I believe transformation and healing are the result of learning and understanding our past experiences and how they shape our present. I draw upon psychodynamic, humanistic, existential, and feminist-therapy interventions in my clinical work.
I work well with clients at various stages in their mental health journey. As a daughter of immigrants, I'm passionate about social justice, and have an awareness of multicultural factors, the ways they intersect, and how they can impact various experiences. I tend to draw on not only my training but also my personal experiences in clinical work.
