Hello, I am a licensed psychotherapist who works with both individuals and couples. As a multilingual practitioner, I am specifically attuned to cultural delineations. I have numerous years of experience specializing in complex trauma, PTSD, anxiety disorders, relational challenges, identity and self-esteem struggles. People come to therapy with unique experiences and goals. I listen and strive to have a deep understanding of each client.
My main goal in session is to create a safe environment for healing, self-exploration and growth. While suffering is universal, we all have a unique story to share; I believe that therapy provides the space for your story to be heard.
Through our work together you can achieve relief from stress and challenges, improvement of relationships and improved quality of life. If you're interested in working together please contact me for an initial consultation session.
