I see my work with people as helping them to live happier and more fulfilling lives. Because we are all different, my services are highly individualized and I do not have a "one-size-fits-all" approach. I take a collaborative approach to working with you. Together, we will first understand your issues and then find better ways of coping, by learning and practicing skills that will allow you to make long-term changes in your life.

I enjoy empowering adolescents and young adults as they navigate through challenging times while transitioning into adulthood. I promote working together to identify goals, develop a centered sense of self, cope with uncertainty, foster positive connections, and create meaningful life-long changes. After graduating from Columbia University, I returned to this community to work in Suburban Hospital’s outpatient Day Treatment Program. I gained experience helping teens and adults with emotional/behavioral regulation difficulties, work-life balance issues, and low self-esteem develop healthy coping skills to enhance resilience.

We, as human beings, have our habitual way to think, feel, and behave which may not always help us cope well. We may feel stuck in the past, fearful for the unknown future, and not being able to be present in the moment. We are not able to change the past and we cannot live in the future because future is delusional and non-existent. The present is the only time that we can do something to make a change and feel better. We do not need to deal with a struggle once we stop fighting against it and begin to practice acceptance and let go of the attachment to our habitual pattern so as to respond with a mindful and non-judgmental mind.
