I have worked with immigrant populations for nine years addressing issues that include trauma, domestic violence, parent-child relational, family reunification, at risk adolescent behavior, anger management, youth substance use , gang prevention, sex trafficking prevention, academic underachievement, anxiety, and depression.
For many immigrants, emigrating to the United States can be an exciting experience filled with anticipation, hope, and the start of a new chapter in their life. However, this experience can also bring with it challenges such as acculturative stress, anxiety, depression, and new and old trauma. At times, it is difficult to know how to address these challenges. Seeing a therapist is usually the first step to getting the support and guidance needed to successfully navigate stressors related to acculturation.

I specialize in working with young adults experiencing eating disorders/disordered eating, body image issues, depression, anxiety, and substance use /abuse.
I understand experiencing pain and brokenness is a part of life. I also recognize that our wounds don’t have to define us. Instead, they can be catalysts for resilience and compassion, toward yourself and others. I believe true healing is possible for everyone, no matter what you have been through or who you are. As a counselor, I aim to provide a safe landing place to explore the hurt parts of yourself and your story that may feel overwhelming, unfamiliar, or confusing. I enjoy working with adolescents (12-18) and young adults (18+).

I have assisted clients going through the court process and have been qualified as an expert witness in the field of substance use disorders and mental health services.
I love what I do! We can turn your insights into action for addictions, anxiety, depression, and life transitions. We may use individual, family, or group therapy, relapse prevention, education, medication, or MAT. I co-developed the Dual Diagnosis Recovery Program for people struggling with both a mental health and drug/alcohol issue to help you based on where you are in your recovery process. Recovery does not always mean abstinence. I designed the Alcohol Moderation Assessment to help you determine your relationship with alcohol and have written three books on three books about alternative approaches to alcohol treatment.

What type of Fairfax mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Fairfax?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
