I have expertise in working with patients from diverse multicultural backgrounds who struggled with psychological issues and the implications of living in a different culture and/or raising children in a different culture.
Hello and welcome! Sometimes our lives are stable; however, there are times where we are suddenly confronted with traumatic experiences or losses, such as health problems (dx. of cancer or terminal illnesses), the death of a loved one, separation of the family, loss of work, problems with our children, or academic struggles. These situations can make us feel unsure of our own capacities and emotional strengths which can lead to increased vulnerability, and can cause us to start experiencing high levels of depression and anxiety, or other emotional pain/fears.

I utilize a multicultural approach, taking into consideration a client's sociocultural identity.
I work with women who despite all outward appearances of success are struggling internally. Some constantly compare other people’s achievements to their own perceived failures. Some struggle to feel confident and capable in the workplace. Some feel disconnected from and misunderstood by their loved ones. Some have a hard time letting go of old patterns that no longer serve them and may, in fact, have adverse impacts. Some find it challenging to love themselves despite their struggles and flaws. Some discover that their normal coping strategies aren’t working anymore and this affects their behavior/ interactions with others.
