Life can be a journey of transitions and challenges. I recognize that the impact of change can be stressful on the mind and the body. As a bi-cultural therapist, I support individuals adjust to life transitions using culturally informed strength-based and mindful based approaches. I have experience providing trauma therapy to adults who have been affected by interpersonal violence and intergenerational trauma. I also recognize how chronic stress and trauma, as well as cultural factors, influence an individual’s sense of self.

My ideal client is looking for a counselor who has worked in many roles during their professional career and is seeking a change agent and an strong advocate - someone who will work tirelessly to help them overcome their problems and achieve balance and emotional well-being. Throughout my career, I have served as a steadfast advocate for immigrant groups, refugees, and people of color. I am passionate about social justice issues. I have been especially involved in working with the Black and Latinx communities in my home states of California and Illinois and use evidence-based treatment to help my clients reach their goals.

I offer counseling for children (ages 4-10), adolescents (11 to 17), and their families. Together, we will identify goals and strategies that can alleviate emotional distress and improve behavior. I work with school counselors and teachers to strengthen the student's support system. I also work with couples who are experiencing relationship difficulties. At times, improving communication may seem to be the solution, and other times, the relationship may need deeper exploration to understand the dynamics that may be contributing to the relationship difficulties. I also offer individual counseling.

Self Esteem Therapists
Self-esteem lives on a spectrum: Not enough self-regard (or low self esteem) can lead people to become depressed, or to tolerate abusive situations and relationships. Too much self-love (or high self-esteem), results in an off-putting sense of entitlement and an inability to learn from failure. And it's occasionally a sign of clinical narcissism. Quite the opposite of being shy or shyness, yet still on the same spectrum.
