For many people, deciding to see a therapist and selecting who to trust your life narrative with is a big decision. Whether this is your first time, or you're looking for a new therapist, congratulations on taking this major step towards living your life more authentically and with greater self-awareness.
As a counseling psychologist, I am passionate about working with clients to build a fuller and more authentic life. I have worked with individuals across the lifespan with various presenting concerns including mood, relationships, identity, education/career, and family-of-origin. I also have specialized training in working with college students, immigrants, and trauma survivors. Regardless of what brings you to therapy, my culture-centered approach allows me to attend to the intersections of your identities and how it impacts how you experience the world and how the world experiences you.
My approach to therapy is warm, empathic, and collaborative, and is rooted in existential & interpersonal therapies. This allows us to focus on understanding yourself and the meaning you make out of your experiences, while attending to your interpersonal relationships and social functioning. I also regularly incorporate techniques and interventions from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT) to achieve therapy goals.
