My counseling approach is relational and trauma -informed.
It can be easy to fall into the habit of not prioritizing ourselves. Therapy can be a great way to provide space for us to get honest with ourselves and to explore our thoughts and emotions more intentionally. My clients are those who are open and motivated to explore insights and to become closer aligned with their authentic self and values. As a proud child of immigrants who values diversity, I hope for my practice to be a safe space for all with the inclusion of every ethnicity, race, religion, disability, sex, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity/expression.

Online therapy! (Not accepting new clients at this time). The effects of trauma can undermine our natural ability to experience joy, peace and happiness in our lives, and it's not our fault! Traumatic experiences destroy trust and separate us from ourselves, leaving us in pain and fear. Using a wellness-focused, strengths-based, skill building, problem solving-approach, my work is to support your journey in wellness in life's difficult times and situations of grief, loss, anxiety, depression, trauma , PTSD , aging, life transitions, chronic pain, chronic illness, cultural/ethnic diversity injustice, and meaning of life questions.

Whether you are healing from trauma , searching for meaning, or just trying to find your way in the world, I will join you in your journey with compassion, respect, and integrity.
As humans, we are wired to grow into whole, integrated beings. The mind and body are designed to be connected in a way that allows us to be in touch with our desires and needs, allowing us to pursue our unique path to a fulfilling life. Unfortunately, this path to integration can be severed and we can disconnect from our bodies, our desires, and our needs in order to survive or accommodate others. This disintegration can lead to chronic pain/illness, depression, anxiety, difficulty in relationships, a sense of isolation, and a decreased capacity for emotions. I am honored to join my clients in the process of healing these wounds.

I work with adults working on 1) Depression 2) Men's Experiences 3) Trauma .
I provide a nonjudgemental space for clients to address anything you choose to bring to therapy. I work primarily with Narrative Therapy, which is a world view as much as it is a therapeutic approach. The Narrative approach puts your story at the center of the conversation. People in my practice are also seen through a multi-storied lens rather than a narrow singular story. I will have a friendly and laid back approach in our sessions. At the same time, I will also offer you direct feedback and honest observations.

My foundation in therapy is strengths-based, person-centered and trauma -informed.
I believe every person has the capacity to learn and make changes to improve their life. The process of understanding and responding to problems and hardships in new ways can be a challenging endeavor, but more importantly it can be encouraging, rewarding and empowering. Safety, respect and collaboration are central in my work, as is tailoring treatment to each person's unique needs. Everyone needs to feel safe, heard, and supported as they engage in work that requires vulnerability and courage.

My experience of navigating intersectionality and practicing from a trauma informed framework fuels my work as a therapist.
**I am not accepting couples/family therapy at this time** Are you overwhelmed with navigating pressures from family, culture and society? Is it hard to find someone who can understand the intersections of your identity and life experiences? My BIPOC clients often tell me about the emotional fatigue of having to explain their stories to mainstream providers. This takes the focus away from healing. They want strategies that honor their deep narratives and tools that respect their heritage and cultural wisdom. If you see yourself in any of these struggles, I invite you to schedule a free consultation with me to reclaim your story.

I offer a trauma -sensitive, neurodiversity affirmative place where you can be deeply listened to and understood.
Your inner critic can make you view yourself through a cruel funhouse mirror, where all you can see are the parts of you that you don’t like. You may have had experiences in the past - in relationships, your family, school, or our culture - that left you feeling broken and like there's something wrong with you, and you can’t seem to shake those feelings no matter how hard you try. Maybe you’ve been told you’re “too sensitive” or “too much,” and now you tell yourself those things -and more- on repeat. You may struggle with trusting your feelings, intuition, or memory, and you want more confidence & self-trust.

I am skilled in managing difficult issues and holding space for the deeper work of trauma , grief, and challenging transitions in life.
My approach to therapy comes from a collaborative, client-centered and unconditional positivity to assist you in believing in yourself, to find the courage and resilience to face your struggles, and help you reconstruct a life balance. I find that when I hold a space for clients and their struggles and defenses, they learn they can begin to trust in another human being, be heard and understood, and eventually learn to trust themselves, and even learn to like themselves.
