I have a passion to support individuals and couples in their journey of change, healing, and growth.
Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in San Jose, CA
Being anxious or distressed about your relationship, transition, or life in general, can affect the way you see yourself and others. It can be terrifying and challenging, especially if you’ve experienced trauma. I am committed to providing you a safe space so that you can better understand yourself, improve your ability to make choices, relate to others, and feel whole again.
As an immigrant, I can relate to your experience. I have worked with immigrants and their families through all of my training. I look forward to hearing your immigration and acculturation story. I continue to stay on top of immigrant and racial issues in our country so that I can help individuals from various races and religions as they navigate through their racial identity, immigration story, and the challenges that they face.
I enjoy helping couples. My approach to couples therapy is from the developmental model of couples therapy from the Couples Institute. I am currently participating in their one-year training. I believe that when couples try to resolve their challenges, it’s more than learning communication skills. It’s learning to understand themselves and their needs; as well as learning how to understand and work together as a couple, whether their goal is to stay together or grow apart amicably.
I am a military retiree, who has raised a family while serving in the military and has struggled with the transition from military to civilian life. I can relate to your experiences. I have worked with veterans, military, and their families during my training. I continue to train in trauma and stay up-to-date in veteran/military issues so that I can help you.
