About

Hello. Welcome !! I am excited to work for you and your family. I have been a therapist for 14 years , working with families and individuals to help them reach their full potential. I am multilingual and have worked with clients from various parts of the world and religious backgrounds. I work with families, individuals and children from ages 8 and above specializing in depression and anxiety, childhood trauma, emotional regulation and anger related issues, learning disorders , personality and mood disorders and parenting skills. Tweens, teens, college students, individuals and families. Parental participation for younger ones.
I am trained as a trauma ( TFCBT) therapist and as a Dialectical behavior ( DBT) therapist. I work with clients to address individual needs that make their relationships with themselves or others wholesome. In therapy we tap into our values, beliefs, goals, resources, strengths and challenges to make changes, choices or just cope with life.
Being a naturalized citizen, I am sensitive to issues of change, adjustment and the pressures on families , individuals and children. I have worked in the public sector collaborating with professionals in schools, courts, and human services . I have experience with diverse populations helping them find better balance in their lives.
