If you want to use the insurance, please try www.bluehumming.org. I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Expressive Arts Therapist, and a president of Blue Humming Therapy. In my practice, I offer holistic therapy to individuals in all ages and the couples/families. My work is interactive, caring, and empathetic; I work with each client to develop a relationship of trust and support. My approach is designed to enable clients to integrate the self and relationships with others.In Western culture, we live by a myth of independence, pursuing the rugged individualism praised in our society.

Some cultures value Independence, and others live in a myth of dependence, highly emphasizing the importance of living in harmony with others.We require both independence and interdependence. it's important to find the balance between two. I help my clients to explore the self and their relationships with others.

I can support you by providing a thoughtful and professional perspective about your integration process while also respecting your right to make decisions about your own life.
