Painful and distressing experiences can scar us psychologically, emotionally, physically, and spiritually, and it can leave us feeling alone in our experiences. I therefore strive to provide a safe, warm, and compassionate environment as we work together on your healing and arrive at a place of stability and hope.

I believe that we all do the best we can, so I focus on resilience and I will collaborate with you on letting go of what no longer serves you, building deeper insights, and making the changes you need and desire.

My work focuses on healing from trauma, substance use disorders, working through various life transitions and stressors, and grief and loss. As an immigrant who has survived different forms of displacement, I highly value using a social justice lens in my work as a therapist. So I welcome anyone who has experienced trauma related to their positionality and intersecting marginalized identities.
