I have worked with immigrant populations for nine years addressing issues that include trauma, domestic violence, parent-child relational, family reunification, at risk adolescent behavior, anger management, youth substance use, gang prevention, sex trafficking prevention, academic underachievement, anxiety, and depression.
For many immigrants, emigrating to the United States can be an exciting experience filled with anticipation, hope, and the start of a new chapter in their life. However, this experience can also bring with it challenges such as acculturative stress, anxiety, depression, and new and old trauma. At times, it is difficult to know how to address these challenges. Seeing a therapist is usually the first step to getting the support and guidance needed to successfully navigate stressors related to acculturation.

As a family grows, the way we connect.
My work includes the belief that everything we do, think, and feel makes sense in context - our relationships. Relationships are where we learn what is ‘acceptable’ and ‘loveable’ about us, how to trust, manage emotions, ask for what we need, and where our boundaries lie. For many, this context may not have offered clear maps for self-worth, healthy relationships, or emotion regulation. When we experience anxiety, depression, or distress we are often responding to unresolved pain, faulty beliefs about our worth, or relationship patterns that no longer serve. I help individuals create a new narrative and authentic sense of self.

Then therapy provides a safe place where together we can dig deeper to discover the causes of our feelings. Through the therapeutic relationship we become aware.

Family Therapy
If you're looking for family therapy in Fairfax or for a Fairfax family therapist these professionals provide family therapy services and structural family therapy services. They include family therapists and marriage family therapists. Therapists in Fairfax using the techniques of 'family therapy' (also referred to as marriage and family therapy and family counseling) view change in terms of the systems of interaction between family members.

Family relationships often affect psychological well-being and, regardless of the origin of an issue, or whether it may be the "individual" or "family" who is presenting it, involving the family in the solution can be of great benefit. Families participate directly in sessions during which the family therapist helps conversations in a way that draws upon and builds the strengths, wisdom and support of the wider family unit.
