I love helping adults who are ready to make a change and want to address: trauma, relationship difficulties, issues with food and body image, chronic stress, anxiety, panic, or depression through building tangible tools and mindfulness-based skills. I welcome clients of diverse backgrounds and seek to provide respectful and culturally sensitive services to all. As an immigrant myself, I have a special appreciation for the experience of first and second generation immigrants. My approach draws from mindfulness, body-oriented interventions, parts work, evidence-based modalities, advances in neuroscience, and attachment research.

I am a clinical psychologist who provides individual and family therapy for youth and adults, and parenting support. I have experience with mood disorders (depression, anxiety), trauma, managing learning challenges, adoption, grief, and loss. My approach varies, drawing from one’s strengths in helping address their unique struggles. I integrate socioeconomic, cultural, gender, and sexual identity issues into therapeutic work. One of my specialities is reflecting on one’s challenges in the context of intergenerational trauma. A person’s family history can shape our relationships with others in both resilient and challenging ways.

What matters to you? Being curious makes a significant difference when you are thinking of making changes because now you are interested in yourself - in what you think and feel and want- and want to become. Are relationships your core concern? - wondering what is working and what is not, what is missing, and what is disappointing?Losses or fear of loss makes us anxious, ashamed, often traumatized by our own feelings. I am committed to working with your personal needs in a trusting, creative, dynamic, caring process and will help you achieve what you desire. Real changes take real time.

As a psychotherapist, I feel it’s an honor to be a witness and facilitator to client transformation, resilience, and growth. I believe my perceptiveness, compassion, and holding of a nonjudgmental space allow discovery and observation of patterns that may no longer be helpful. I see my work through a social justice perspective and understand oppression itself as a form of stress and trauma. As a mixed-race, multicultural woman, I honor experiences of being at different intersections of identity. I can relate to experiences of simultaneously belonging and not belonging in different spaces.

Emotional problems can be difficult to cope with and resolve alone. Whether you have experienced a painful loss, are suffering from anxiety or depression, are feeling stifled in your relationships, or cannot seem to reach your goals, the help of an experienced professional can assist you in initiating the changes that will allow you to lead a more satisfying life. Understanding your emotional life is essential to your personal and professional well being. We use to have this top-down notion that reason was superior to emotion. However, recent research clearly shows that we think better when we know and can process our emotions.
