One of the most important aspects in therapy is for patients to feel heard, respected, and understood. Given that each individual is unique, and no one issue is ever the same among different people, my approach is integrative and tailored to meet the needs of the person, not the "problem". I strive to create a compassionate, non-judgemental environment for patients to learn, grow, explore, challenge, and to live the life they want to be living. I specialize in working with adults - individual, couples, and family - with anxiety, depression, PTSD/trauma, relationship problems, substance abuse, ADD/ADHD, and LGBTQ issues.

I specialize in immigrant & BIPOC populations and issues pertaining to: identity, cultural assimilation, differentiating from family , living authentically, coming out, spirituality, boundaries, codependency, and healthy relationships.
You don’t have to go through your quarter life crisis (or any crisis) alone… especially during a pandemic! In these unprecedented and uncertain times, you might be constantly worrying about the future or unsure of your place in the world. Maybe you keep comparing yourself to others and struggle with maintaining healthy relationships and setting boundaries at work and at home. Former ways of coping such as traveling and socializing with friends have come to an abrupt halt, and you might be having trouble finding new ways to manage your anxiety, depression, and unresolved trauma.

I enjoyed very much my post licensure work at a family institute. Whether working with a child, an adolescent, an adult, a dyad or the whole family , I will initially focus on the person suffering the most. Based on the presenting symptom, I may do brief crisis intervention to stabilize a situation until an individual's underlying issue has been crystallized. The life issue causing depression, anxiety, and fears will then be addressed in more depth. My approach is to assist people in their own healing, maximizing on their own strengths and resources.
