About

Do you live in a culture that is different from your culture of origin? Do you feel it's hard to be fully understood? Are you in the middle of a conflict with others? Sometimes, we feel lonely, lost, and disempowered when going through life transitions, good or bad. Transition could look like a divorce, a loss of a love one, a new cultural/sexual identity, or even an exciting new job. You don’t have to go through those transitions alone. Therapy is a safe space for you to explore the complex emotions come with the changes. If you are not sure what you are experiencing, therapy also allows you to get closer to the unknown.
Being grounded in existentialism, I utilize evidence and strength-based therapeutic approaches. I pay attention to your cognition, mind, body, and the environment. By unpacking your upbringing and experience together, we demystify the behaviors that do not serve you well. On this journey together, we go at your pace to help you meet goals that matter to you.
You might be discouraged by the idea of opening up to a stranger. However, in the safe zone we build together, your courage, vulnerability, and desire to feel whole will be recognized and cherished. The process starts from setting up a free consultation to see if we are a good fit. You deserve an individualized healing plan. That is what I offer to you.
