In my clinical approach, I consider each person within the context of their unique environment. This ensures careful assessment and individualized treatment plans that are strengths-based, culturally sensitive, and trauma-informed. I understand how the intersectionality of different identities, such as race/ethnicity, gender, as well as immigration and socioeconomic status, have a deep impact on your personal experiences. My aim is to empower you to define your life challenges and to achieve your desired goals in therapy. This is done so by establishing a positive, empathetic, and non-judgmental therapeutic alliance, in which we work as collaborators. I take an integrated approach based on your clinical needs but the primary theories that inform my practice are cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and psychodynamic therapy.

This is my second career. I was a textiles/ fashion designer in NYC for over a decade before making a career change to counseling. I still enjoy illustrating and painting, and I believe that art is an excellent form of therapy.
