About

You can have more peace and fulfillment in your life, and I can help you cultivate this. Together we will face your obstacles and help you increase self-confidence, improve self-esteem, form better relationships, and enjoy greater successes in life! You will uncover sources of your pain and discomfort, which keep you stuck in a place of discontent. I will teach you skills to resolve troublesome senses of confusion, loss, sadness, regret, worries, guilt, shame, and other pain. You will gain clarity and experience a more peaceful way of moving through life, no matter what has kept you stuck for a month, a year, or for decades.
I specialize in working with people who suffered trauma, have difficulty regulating their emotions, or experience relationship struggles. Another area of interest for me is the realm of diversity factors, immigration, and cultural struggles. These issues capture my professional and personal interests as a first generation immigrant and a bi-lingual speaker.
My work is highly individual-specific. I take a sincere interest in learning you, relating to you, and providing valuable feedback to you. I work with individuals, couples, and families. I offer daytime and evening appointments based on availability. Contact me for a complimentary phone consultation to discuss how I may be of service.
