My Approach to Therapy:

"I provide counseling to adults with anxiety, trauma and identity issues and couples with communication difficulties. I'm warm, interactive and tenacious about decreasing your pain and stress, and helping you live the life you want. We will find short and long term solutions to attain your goals. I'm specially trained in depth therapy, trauma, DBT, mindfulness and social justice issues. As a licensed marriage and family therapist, I hold a systems view, meaning we will look at the varying sets of relationships you coexist in (family, partnership, work, friendships etc.). As a woman of color and adult child of immigrants, I am committed to working with people with marginalized identities in support of the difficulties of living in two worlds and the stresses of systemic (race, gender, sexuality, class and more) oppression. Therapy can bring awareness to, heal and challenge ways we have been forced to assimilate and bear oppression. I believe therapy is a dynamic two-participant relational process; I aim NOT to be a “blank” slate and say nothing. Together we will cultivate curiosity about your patterns so you can know yourself deeply."
