About My Clients

The majority of my clients are adults who are going through life transitions and want support adjusting to a variety of life changes. Some of my clients have past trauma they want to unpack in a safe space. Although my clients are from different racial backgrounds, sexual identities, and life experiences, I have found they all want to feel supported and validated in sessions. Their end goal is usually to improve their quality of life so they can enjoy their lives again.

My Background and Approach

I want to make therapy less intimidating. I strive to create an open nonjudgmental space during sessions. I like to center my clients and will often ask for feedback to ensure their needs are being met. I hope you will feel supported and validated during our sessions. While working with different communities, I consistently saw that there was a huge gap in mental health services. Additionally, people that were connected to mental health services were dissatisfied with the lack of diversity and accessibility in the field. I decided to become a therapist to help fill some of that gap.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

As the eldest daughter of an immigrant family, I have always been aware of the mental health issues that underrepresented communities face. I think mental health should be accessible to everyone. For that reason, I am very passionate about working with underrepresented and vulnerable communities. During my time in graduate school, I would provide free therapy to immigrants who did not have access to insurance. I value giving back to my community, and I think community plays an important role in the healing process. Community support allows us to feel less alone and gives us purpose and motivation.
