About My Clients

I have a passion for helping people who have a history of trauma and have anxiety or depression. I also feel drawn to immigrants and other minorities who may not identify with the larger culture or fit into society’s established categories. I work with people going through life transitions such as divorce, health issues, career and midlife changes.

My Background and Approach

I am a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional and use EMDR, mindfulness, Jungian approaches, and psycho-education to help people process trauma so that they are able to move forward in life and not stay stuck in the past. I bear witness to people's stories and life experiences while holding a space for healing and meaning to occur. I work with people going through life transitions such as divorce, health issues, career and midlife changes. When these parts of our lives change, we experience a shift in our sense of self, the roles we play, the masks we wear. How we manage these shifts determines how we can regain our balance and move forward with new meaning and purpose in life. Therapy can help us find autonomy and inspiration in life even after major setbacks or trauma, and can help us rekindle hope, creativity and confidence in our ability to bounce back.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am a passionate advocate for mental health in minority communities, and have worked with people of color from all walks of life, including immigrant professionals, refugees, and individuals with disabilities. As an immigrant, I am aware of the unique needs of minorities and members of subcultures that do not prescribe to society's rigid structures. Our experience of the world is different from those in the dominant culture. People respond to us in unexpected or stereotypical ways, or make assumptions about who we are. This can result in the loss of our sense of self, stability, and belonging, and can make us feel isolated and undervalued. However, if we focus on those core values and cultural ideas that strengthen us, we can find our way through unfamiliar or even hostile situations while retaining our authenticity. We can be ourselves while also being part of the collective.
