About My Clients

Do you worry you’re a disappointment to those you love? Do you feel constantly burdened by other’s expectations? Are you caught between who you want to be and what your family or boss expect from you? The idea of setting boundaries terrifies you, but you know that something needs to change. You love your family, and respect them too. You’re driven and have worked so hard to get to this point in your education or career, but something just doesn’t feel sustainable anymore.

My Background and Approach

If you grew up with complicated family dynamics, shifting the way you engage with relationships is inherently frightening. Maybe you’re an oldest daughter, a child of immigrants or a third culture kid. You might be a high achiever; perfectionism and the drive to succeed are handed down the family lineage. When you grow up with rigid definitions of success, it can be hard to even recognize the constant stress and pressure you’re under… until you crack. You’re searching for a name for this feeling-is it burnout? Anxiety? Is this maybe just a work problem? Do I actually have undiagnosed ADHD or autism? Is this religious trauma? In therapy, my goal is to connect deeply and meaningfully, but also to allow you to feel comfortable and share openly about any aspect of your life. In my 7 years of experience in mental health, I have found that by accepting a client as who they are and recognizing their potential to grow, we are able to achieve real change together.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

As an immigrant myself, I enjoy working with immigrant and 2nd / 3rd generation clients who experience the heavy pressure of familial expectations. I’m here to help you navigate the challenges of realigning your relationships and managing anxiety whilst honoring your values. I have significant clinical experience working with a range of clients from different backgrounds; diverse ethnicities, socioeconomic statuses, immigration statuses, and sexual orientation & gender identities are welcome in my practice.
