My Approach to Helping
Therapy can initially be intimidating and unfamiliar, which is why I aim to create a safe space for my clients to express their emotions, experiences, and challenges. I believe a non-judgmental environment and a trusting relationship are fundamental in fostering the therapeutic alliance. In the therapy process, I invite my clients to engage in exploration to help them gain insight into their patterns of behavior. My approach encourages self-empowerment by allowing clients to be active participants in the change process and ultimately reach the personal growth they desire.
I enjoy working with people of all backgrounds and I specialize in: depression, anxiety, trauma, grief/loss, and relational difficulties. As an immigrant, I am passionate about working with immigrants and adult children of immigrants who experience stressors, such as balancing a bicultural/multicultural identity and navigating the barriers of a new country.
Whether you view your stress to be big or small, I believe therapy can be a beneficial source of support for you.
