About My Clients

I specialize in working with immigrants and members of immigrant families. My own identity as an immigrant inspired me to pay special attention to this often overlooked community. A person's immigration status has multilayered impacts on their feelings, opportunities and overall lived experiences. Whether you are struggling with family issues, stress, fear, sadness or relationship concerns, I pay special attention to the impact of this salient identity.

My Background and Approach

My therapeutic approach is rooted in relational and psychodynamic theories with a foundation in multiculturally responsive therapy. As you share your concerns and experiences, I’m continually formulating and refining my understanding of the root of your suffering, factors that are maintaining your pain, and barriers to you having the life that you want. This is a collaborative process, as I regularly share my thoughts and solicit your feedback. A deeper understanding of you as a person often requires exploration of present and past relationships and experiences that have shaped your understanding of yourself and others. The intersections of your identities have no doubt also impacted your lived experience, access to resources and options, and has had a great impact on the way you’ve navigated life. I work collaboratively with you to illuminate these factors, and help you to experiment with new behaviors and approaches to enable you to build a life that is meaningful to you.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Life doesn't always deal us a great deck of cards. We don't all start off with the same resources and opportunities, painful events have led to us feeling stuck, and we may feel that life just isn't the way we imagined. I'm passionate about helping you to create a life of meaning, purpose and joy regardless of your circumstances. We often wait to live life fully when we have accomplished certain things, or circumstances have changed, or the people in our lives have finally come to their senses. No more waiting.....the time is now! My goal is to empower you to create a life that you love, and to make moves with the deck of cards that you were given. When possible, I'll cheer you on in changing the cards themselves! "Worthy now. Not if. Not when. We are worthy of love and belonging now. Right this minute. As is." – Brene Brown
