About

I believe in empowering my clients to discover their inner strengths. Therapy is a journey in self exploration, self awareness and change. I use a multicultural perspective to inform my clinical practice. I offer tele-health services to my clients accessibility to care .Self pay clients can expect an appointment within 24 hours. My sessions use mindfulness, practicing self regulation, cognitive restructuring, imago skills, play therapy and many other techniques that are relevant to a client's treatment plan. I am available to my clients between sessions via text and secure video chatting. I offer financial therapy.
I am experienced in trauma treatment, marriage and relationship counseling, grief and loss therapy , and cognitive behavior therapy. I offer mental health interventions for addictions treatment.
I have deep empathy and personal life experiences with parenting stress, early childhood loss, and life transitions. I work with families on cross cultural adaptation and parenting skills. I work with young adults who are trying to cope with life transitions, stress and depression. I work with immigrant families on adjustment and family relationships.
