Hi, my name is pronounced like "knee-uh lay". I work with 1st and 2nd generation immigrants and transracial adoptees with anxiety.
Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Evanston, IL
As a 2nd generation immigrant I struggled with my own racial identity. This pushed me to explore and learn more about racial identity development while in grad school. I have experience working with other immigrants as well as transracial adoptees.
Most of the clients I have worked with have anxiety related to making life choices and their identity. I help clients get rooted in who they are so that when life is unstable they are grounded in the foundation of themselves.
I have many years of experience working with international adoptees and their families, through the Catalyst Foundation Vietnamese Heritage Camps. I also continue to seek out professional consultation to grow my understanding of adoption issues and concerns.
