About

My life’s work is to improve & understand human relationships, and to help others live a life of meaning and authenticity. I strive to build bridges of understanding between multiple realities and reframing perspectives. I work with individuals, couples, families, and groups. I specialize in trauma, transitions, cross-cultural adjustment, personal or professional relationship difficulties, parenting, grief, and marital issues.
My approach is strength-based, collaborative, and evidence-based integrating theories from a family systems perspective, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy, & Attachment Theory. I specialize in "Bicultural", "multicultural", "bi-racial", "multiracial" identities, and/or GLBTQ+ individuals facing cross-cultural challenges.
When navigating life’s various obstacles and challenges it helps not to feel alone. Therapy can provide you with the support you need to feel grounded, gain clarity, and techniques to manage challenges.
