In your search for a therapist, you will want someone who both understands what you are going through, and who is passionately committed to working with you to figure out where you want to go and how to get there. Therapy is above all a process and journey of self discovery which requires a guide who is patient and supportive, and at the same time encouraging and persistent to help you understand your self and the often hidden patterns of your life and relationships that hold you back. I offer a healing dialogue that is pragmatic and integrative, while providing a trusting environment for growth and change.

I enjoy helping my clients become their authentic selves in a world that tries its best to control who you are and how you identify. I am here to help my clients live their truth and become comfortable with who they are. I will bring my authentic self to sessions as well, which I would describe as warm, thoughtful, friendly, and casual. I utilize an eclectic approach which includes psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral, mindfulness, trauma-focused, and strength-based. Our past can shape us, but it doesn’t have to define who we are. I help my clients process past experiences that make them feel “stuck” in order to start moving forward.

People-pleasing can make you feel stressed and burned-out. The rollercoaster ups and downs can make you feel upset and even a bit angry when you are usually a very nice person. My clients learn new ways of looking at things so that they feel better about how they treat their friends, family, and how they treat themselves.

It’s hard to tell what's “normal” when it comes to trauma and culture. Is it normal to question your reality and feel angry and defensive when other people don’t understand you? What parts of you do you leave behind and which do you keep? Is it normal for interracial or multi-cultural couples to have trouble articulating their norms or understanding their partner's? After all, how much of it is culture and how much is just... us? I enjoy and have success helping clients explore their realities while questioning which parts of it they want to keep and change.

Have you attained success in your life, only to find that you feel resentful and burnt out? As a high achiever, it’s confusing to suddenly feel disconnected from the passion that has always driven you. Maybe this dissatisfaction has been slowly growing over the years & you’ve been able to manage it. But now you’re finding it harder to feel interested in your work or relationships. You may also be feeling exhausted & curious why your skills simply aren't working anymore. The habitual stress associated with being a powerful go-getter can also lead to a variety of health problems that medical doctors aren’t skilled at addressing.

Embrace life. Laugh again. Restore joy. Often we struggle in silence believing change is not possible. Those around you tell to get over it, move on or even stop talking about it. However, talking to the right person can be transformational.

Many have endured the stigma of having a major mental illness which created difficulties in daily functioning, mood swings, or poor judgement and distorted thinking.
