More Info About My Practice

I've worked with families, children, and teens in my private practice, as well as in schools. I've helped clients manage issues such as depression, academic challenges, co-parenting, anxiety, life transitions, loss, grief, acculturation, social skills development, relationship challenges, and low self-esteem.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

For the past 7 years I have worked for the Santa Clara Unified School District as a therapist with children and teenagers. Before that I worked in schools in Fremont and Cupertino. Working in the school system holds a special place in my heart because I feel I am able to work and support individuals that may not otherwise receive therapeutic services. It is humbling to see the positive change that occurs with these students as well as their families.
