*Currently not accepting new clients* Navigating modern times as a teen and adult is challenging especially coming from an immigrant family. My firsthand experience in that realm has allowed me to specialize in supporting those trying to balance self-identity with old traditions. I believe therapy is a collaborative relationship and my approach is to meet you wherever you are reaching from. Through compassion, patience, and direction I hope to guide you to a space where you find a peace mind and greater love for yourself.
My approach is integrative, I tend to favor psychodynamic and relational modalities. I specialize in working with women experiencing relational challenges due to romance, trauma, depression, and anxiety. I also work with teens and adults across cultures who struggle with low self esteem, finding themselves due to life transition, and loss.
