Being part of the interconnected natural world, we thrive in connection. Being interconnected means we are impacted by external (socioeconomic/medical/cultural) and internal systems (biological/psychological/spiritual). Our human experience is like a complex instrument that requires studying, fine-tuning, and caring to create new songs.
We are life travelers who have gotten hurt/stuck along the way and are looking for ways to get unstuck and make meaning of our emotions, reactivity, and suffering. My goals are to explore, imagine, and collaborate with you in this healing process of becoming an authentic and empowering self.
I am here for you to explore and understand your emotions and experiences to help you make meaning of them. I work holistically as an integrated family therapist, with a teaching background, using various modalities to work with individuals, families, couples, and children. As a trained trauma informed EMDR clinician, I also utilize EMDR for PTSD/psychological/relational challenges.
Being an immigrant myself, raising children, and building a place of my own as a BIPOC therapist while navigating different life stages and challenges, I am familiar with the tension that arises from differences in cultural/generational values and bicultural experiences that impact individual and Families. Ultimately, I want to support and empower you on your journey to be you. CALL FOR A FREE 20 MINUTE CONSULTATION NOW at 503-218-3885!
