About

If you are struggling with the aftermath of trauma, or navigating a depressive episode, or feeling anxious about socializing with others, or coping with a major life change, or trying to figure where to land on your identity, you are at an important intersection of life. You may be at the edge of losing hope for change, but as Anais Nin put it, “And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” A crisis is also an opportunity for make a transformation with the help of an experienced mental health professional.
I am passionate to help you transform your inner experience. Trust, safety, acceptance and authenticity is the foundation of my clinical work. I believe change can only happen when a person is truly heard and accepted. In the context of trusting relationship, I assist you increasing awareness, insight, and self-acceptance and making adaptive life choices.
As a bilingual psychologist with 14 years of experience working with children, adolescents, and adults in various settings, I connect with clients despite of their skin color, body image, cultural background, and social status. I utilize a variety of theories and techniques from emotion focused therapy, psychodynamic therapy, CBT, DBT, ACT, etc.
