About

I strive to facilitate a reflective and explorative environment where the unbearable can be held and truth can be spoken. Multicultural and bilingual elements of my identity, and a history of enduring ethnic discrimination and immigration, significantly inform how I listen to my clients, think through trauma and fragmentation with them. Unconscious repetitions of aversion, clinging, and reenactments of familiar/familial ways of being bind us in suffering. Through psychotherapy, rigid frames of being can be deconstructed and psychological space can be reclaimed for creativity, desire and becoming.
Style of psychotherapy is insight and transformation oriented. Prospective clients can anticipate the collaborative work of deconstructing, analyzing, and working through psychological pain. We will utilize free-association, creative and intuitive thinking, slips of the tongue, reverie, dreams, metaphors, mindfulness and attunement to somatic experiences.
Most of my clinical experience focused on treating: complex trauma, post-traumatic stress disorder, personality disorders, anxiety, and depression. I primarily see adult clients. If you would like to inquire, we can schedule an introductory call for both of us to ask questions and explore if this will be a good fit.
