I have worked with immigrant populations for nine years addressing issues that include trauma, domestic violence, parent-child relational, family reunification, at risk adolescent behavior, anger management, youth substance use, gang prevention, sex trafficking prevention, academic underachievement, anxiety, and depression.
For many immigrants, emigrating to the United States can be an exciting experience filled with anticipation, hope, and the start of a new chapter in their life. However, this experience can also bring with it challenges such as acculturative stress, anxiety, depression, and new and old trauma. At times, it is difficult to know how to address these challenges. Seeing a therapist is usually the first step to getting the support and guidance needed to successfully navigate stressors related to acculturation.

I believe that the therapeutic relationship is the central component to successful psychotherapy and I bring special attention to the ongoing process of relational safety. I also believe that self-harmful behaviors always have roots in past experiences of threat and it can be life-changing to discover these connections. I work to help individuals establish goals, explore their experiences, gain self-awareness, develop resources and skills, cultivate self-compassion, and find greater self-empowerment so they can create a more fulfilling and meaningful life for themselves.

Many people pick up unhealthy coping behaviors when faced with vast amounts of emotional pain. It is often these behaviors that let us know something is not working well and force us to seek counsel for answers and solutions. Concerns I have worked with range from technology addiction, to self-injury, to poor relationship quality.
