As a multilingual therapist who experienced and lived in various parts of the world, I have the expertise in navigating multicultural issues.
Is anxiety, depression, or trauma holding you back from being your true self? Do you feel stuck in managing difficult life transitions? Now, every little thing becomes super overwhelming. Those negative experiences reopen old wounds and cause new ones. You tried burying your pain hoping it would go away. You feel lonely and tormented. You feel exhausted, stressed, and angry all the time. You wonder how much more you can take. You are unsure of who or where to turn for help. In the midst of this painful journey, you do not have to go through it alone.

My area of focus includes but is not limited to grief and loss, anxiety, depressive symptoms, adjusting to change and life-transitions, relationship-issues, and life challenges resulting from racial and multicultural identity.
Therapy is essential to healing from crisis-related trauma, however it does not always have to be crisis responsive. You may want to change self-defeating behaviors or develop or improve your sense of purpose. While the influence of life experience from infancy through adulthood is undeniable, I specialize in using person-centered therapy that focuses on the present with strengths-based, solutions-oriented emphasis and holistic and mindfulness practices that nurture self- awareness.

As an immigrant, I am passionate about working with immigrants and adult children of immigrants who experience stressors, such as balancing a bicultural/multicultural identity and navigating the barriers of a new country.
Therapy can initially be intimidating and unfamiliar, which is why I aim to create a safe space for my clients to express their emotions, experiences, and challenges. I believe a non-judgmental environment and a trusting relationship are fundamental in fostering the therapeutic alliance. In the therapy process, I invite my clients to engage in exploration to help them gain insight into their patterns of behavior. My approach encourages self-empowerment by allowing clients to be active participants in the change process and ultimately reach the personal growth they desire.
