Healing is not linear, but takes time, effort, patience, and a lot of self-compassion. As your therapist, I will act as your guide to building this self-compassion as well as self-esteem and self-confidence. My goal as your therapist is to not only help you to feel emotionally and physically safe, but to also help you to build this safety with yourself, or within your partnership, or other important relationships. As a marriage and family therapist, I have experience working with families of different backgrounds and upbringings, with couples of all ages, with children (primarily 10+), and many teenagers.
My specialties include anxiety, body image and self-esteem issues, trauma, marital counseling, racial/minority stress, racial identity, immigrant/child of immigrant stress, teen and parent issues, family counseling, and parenting support.
In my free time, I love being outside, going to the beach, reading a good book, and grabbing some boba. I look forward to getting to know you and being a part of your healing journey!
