About

Therapy is a collaborative deep dive into what holds you back, what keeps you stuck, what triggers you, and what excites you. It is an exploration of what it means to be human, to be you, and to be in relation with others. Though people come to me for different reasons, I’ve found that the shared commonality is a feeling of disconnection; disconnection from a sense of purpose, a loved one, career, community or even just from oneself. Our work is about helping you recreate connection in these areas so that you can live your most vibrant life.
As a first generation immigrant with a multicultural background, I’m passionate about working with people from all walks of life who struggle with identity issues and finding a sense of belonging with others and in themselves.
I practice in a trauma-informed and integrative approach, interweaving Western psychological theory and evidence-based methods with Eastern philosophy and practices.
