Do you have many questions about how life has/is treating you and how you are navigating life?
Share a nurturing space with me as we explore your relationship with yourself, others, and society at large. We can cry together, laugh together, process together and challenge our capacities to make adjustments in areas that are no longer helpful and fulfilling. I am invested in helping you identify your pain points and joyful point in areas including, but not limited to, self/esteem / self-worth, relationship / intimacy, cultural identity, trauma, and anxiety / depression / grief. My goal is to help you build and strengthen your own unique toolkit to enjoy a healthier lifestyle.
I will meet you where you are and engage in creative tools and personalized methods to help you help yourself. My treatment approaches include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (Mindfulness and Trauma-Focused), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy, Relational-Cultural Therapy, and Positive Psychotherapy.
I have a multicultural background and learned to acculturate wherever I am. I have extensive experience working in different programs and settings and with individuals, couples, and families from all walks of life. In addition to being a Bilingual Psychotherapist, I have held various different roles as a leader, educator, self-starter and team-member. With my additional interests in Political Science, I obtained the opportunity to work at United Nations Department of Public Information and IMPACT Leadership 21 which taught me about empowerment and advocacy for the underserved population through public policy. These experiences have helped me learn and understand mental health from different lenses.
I hold an Ed.M. in Mental Health Counseling and an M.A. in Psychological Counseling from Teachers College, Columbia University.
I offer a free 15-min phone consultation to discuss your needs and desires, and how I can help. I hope to meet you and heal with you!
