I love helping adults who are ready to make a change and want to address: trauma, relationship difficulties, issues with food and body image, chronic stress, anxiety, panic, or depression through building tangible tools and mindfulness-based skills. I welcome clients of diverse backgrounds and seek to provide respectful and culturally sensitive services to all. As an immigrant myself, I have a special appreciation for the experience of first and second generation immigrants. My approach draws from mindfulness, body-oriented interventions, parts work, evidence-based modalities, advances in neuroscience, and attachment research.

Finding a therapist who feels like the "right fit" is one of the most important aspects of a successful therapy. I provide a safe, confidential, non-judgmental space that welcomes all aspects of you and your experience.

Being human can be hard. We are born in an unjust world, often not taught how to feel, or be in healthy relationship with self, others and nature. We understandably develop ways of coping with stress and uncertainty, that become less helpful and limiting with time. Psychotherapy can be a space to unlearn these ways that are harming you, including systemic ones, dive deep into yourself, to meet all the parts of you, heal past traumas, personal, cultural and intergenerational. The process will help you make life choices that align with your values, so you can live a more meaningful, joyful life, and build healthy relationships.
