I believe our lived experiences and hopes for the future provide us with insights to help understand our pain, joy, struggles, triumphs, and deepest questions. The late poet and essayist Audre Lorde reminds us that "our feelings are our most genuine paths to knowledge." Using an intersectional, anti-oppressive, and trauma-informed framework, I embark on a collaborative journey with clients who want to reflect on their experiences and unpack symptoms related to anxiety, depression, and trauma that may impact their relationships and daily lives.
I am passionate about exploring people’s relationships with themselves and others, while analyzing the role of systems and intergenerational and community trauma. Ultimately, I feel called to support clients in their journeys to acceptance and compassion in an often violent world.
In my practice, I affirm clients’ identities and intersecting struggles, while drawing on psychodynamic, relational and mindfulness practices, dialogue, and strategies for collective care. As a community organizer, educator, and first-generation immigrant, I am dedicated to holding space for and with you as you chart your unique path toward healing.
