I help immigrant, bi-national, and bi-cultural partners work through differences around expectations given their individual cultural upbringing. It can be easy for partners to miss these important life events as well as transitions such as the migration experience and get stuck, feeling hurt or that the relationship is hopeless. Using a cultural humility lens, I also love to help individuals whom have suffered traumatic experiences in life. These include racial/ethnic discrimination, spiritual/religious trauma, sexual abuse, and shame given their sexual preferences."

I specialize in getting to know a person first and then helping that person heal from past hurts, learn skills for problem-solving, improve communication, build strong relationships, practice ways to manage strong emotions, learn to slow down and change their harmful or intrusive thoughts, draw from their faith for strength, develop strong support systems, and with all this, hope of long-term recovery can become reality."

"I believe that the start of change is through self-awareness! Being aware of triggers from past wounds may guide people at a conscious level to explore an understanding of what is occurring at their unconscious level. Unconscious memories from past wounds can at times control and influence someone\'s current thought patterns, emotions and behaviors. Processing past wounds in therapy may give you more control over problematic cognitive, behavioral, and emotional patterns. I believe that people are doing the best that they can do with what they have learned. "
