I have expertise in sexual assault/harrassment survivorship and advocacy, Intimate Partner Violence , HIV/AIDS, multi-cultural/generational issues and AAPI discrimination.
How do we reconnect with ourselves? How do we connect in community and solidarity with each other? The surfacing of racial and social divisions have triggered a sense of isolation and alienation, especially in the BIPOC, AAPI and LGBTQ+ & TGNC communities. My experience as a social worker serving communities who experience intergenerational trauma and social oppression inform my holistic approach of looking at my clients' entire lived experiences. I am a social justice-oriented, multi-racial and multi-lingual therapist, focused on empowerment and healing for people in the community.

I have experience with survivors and offenders of domestic violence , substance use, parenting, and ran a court ordered anger management program.
I take a "holistic eclectic" approach to therapy. With the holistic aspect, I address symptoms as one way an individual's cognizance can convey consideration to an individual's advance perception. In the eclectic aspect, I use various theoretical approaches to meet client's needs. I also address the therapeutic relationship with the belief that a stable relationship incorporates trust, authenticity, autonomy and optimistic outcomes.
