You may have suffered greatly internally and contemplated making a change. When the time comes, the risk to remain tight in a bud can be more painful than the risk it takes to blossom. If you are ready to improve your self-esteem, or seek healing from trauma, or overcome a depressive episode, or rebuild healthy relationships, I am here to guide and walk with you in your journal of growth and transformation. As a clinical and research psychologist and former assistant professor, I actively incorporate 14 years of clinical experience and research evidence working with children, adolescents, adults, and couples in my work with clients.
I believe change can only happen when one is truly heard, empathized, and accepted. Each emotion is valued in therapeutic space because it supplies important information about your being. I foster a nurturing therapeutic relationship with clients and use emotion focused and other frameworks to transform old, stuck feelings to more adaptive ones.
As a bilingual psychologist with 14 years of experience working in various settings, I connect with clients despite their skin color, body image, cultural background, and disability and social status. Clients experience me as warm, understanding, and empathic. I truly honor the opportunity to accompany my clients in their journey of growth and healing.

I often use Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT) in my practice. In your first session, we'll explore what brought you to therapy and then decide the most appropriate ways to help you make progress. With EFT, I explore different layers of emotions and deepen your feelings to understand what is the core, old, and stuck feeling, and then use exercises to help you access more adaptive feelings.
