About

Racism, harassment, brutality, microaggressions affect our levels of self-esteem, anxiety and depression. You're feeling shame and embarrassment, reeling from the shock, anger and pain and find it difficult to talk to others. You are experiencing trauma, and reliving it in your mind and feel alone. Telling those who may not understand, often makes it worse. It's important that you find someone with whom you are comfortable and trust. It’s important for your healing to be supported heard and validated.
One of my specialties and interests is working with children of immigrants’ trauma. This may look like addressing perfectionism, codependency, “not good enough-ness,” family issues resulting from "tiger parenting." These are examples of common issues I help clients process, which are related with identity and trauma work; we have all experienced trauma.
EMDR & IFS intensives, incorporating somatic therapy and psychoeducation, offered. Both are powerful to understand and integrate what has happened TO you. Intensives are longer sessions and less frequent sessions per month. Many find intensives helpful, giving you more time to process in session, more time for you outside of session. Wishing you the best
