My Approach to Therapy:

AS A CHILD OF IMMIGRANT PARENTS, I understand the stigma and shame attached to therapy.

BEING FAMILIAR WITH A CULTURE that often silences and invalidates experiences of trauma, I firmly believe that everyone deserves to live a life that is free of violence and that therapy is one way to heal and break intergenerational trauma.

I OFFER SUPPORT that is compassionate, inclusive, and cognizant of cultural norms and expectations. Whether you are looking for a supportive environment where you can process trauma, going through a change, experiencing a crisis, or simply feeling unhappy with life and are unsure why, I'm here to offer guidance and support through the process.
