It can be difficult to balance past regrets, present frustrations and future uncertainties. We can feel so “stuck” with no idea of how to continue forward.

My passion is to normalize mental health as an integral part of wellness, particularly amongst culturally and ethnically diverse individuals and communities.

Many of my clients relate to the experience of feeling "othered", different or as existing outside of culturally-constructed margins. In our increasingly isolationist world, feeling different or other is becoming a common experience. While many things may remind us of our difference, or "non-normativity", in therapy I aim to collaboratively uncover and identify the worth and purpose that I believe exist in all humxn beings. I believe that all concerns, struggles, challenges, curiosities and explorations brought to therapy are related to relationships--the relationship we have with ourselves and other people. Often, clients express a need for deep connection and goals involve enhancing relationships, identifying emotions, coping more effectively with emotions, and nourishing self-worth and confidence. Research on therapeutic effectiveness has repeatedly demonstrated that therapeutic relationship is the principle determinant of positive therapeutic outcome. Thus, when I first meet clients, client-therapist relationship and chemistry is the primary emphasis and catalyst for change.

Our senses of self and authentic connections with others are priceless. We want to have compassion for ourselves in balance with empathy for those around us. Our security can be disrupted by recent events or sudden memories of experiences we thought were in our pasts. We can feel genuinely uncomfortable, frightened, like we’re in survival mode. We feel more intense, impulsive, inactive, or have physical pain at times of turmoil. Our relationships with our self and those we care about, work with, or rely on can become unstable. In recent months, many of us find it even more challenging to settle into peace and security.
