My Therapy Style

My approach to therapy is integrative and individualized according to one's cultural background. I utilize a variety of interventions to help you navigate life transitions, grief, and distress. Social and cultural factors play a significant role in how we perceive the world and immerse ourselves in our experiences. Together, we will explore life's biological, psychological, and socio-cultural aspects to help facilitate decision-making, increase self-worth, improve interpersonal relationships, and improve quality of life.

Get to Know Me

Why did you become a mental health professional?

I became a mental health professional to help support others through what might seem "the impossible". Often, we forget how resilient we are. I enjoy helping others remember their resilience.

What are your interests outside of work?

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, reliving my favorite childhood memories through my children, working out, cooking, baking, playing tourist in my favorite city (SF!), and traveling.

What is one thing you do daily that supports your well-being?

I reflect on my day and remind myself that the difficulties I experience are temporary. I remind myself of what I have and practice gratitude.

What book have you read more than once?

The Polar Express. Not only have I read this many times, but I have also watched the movie dozens of times. My son cannot get enough of this story and I do not blame him. Even as an adult, it is nostalgic because it reminds me of a time when I believed in Santa and magic and that anything is possible as long as you believe it.

Favorite organization/non-profit?

Institute on Aging is my favorite non-profit because its mission is to support older adults in maintaining their independence and overall health.

How do you recharge?

I watch my favorite rom-com movies.

Do you have any pets?

I have a fluffy lion-bear dog named Barley. My favorite story of him is during his first days living with us. We had a blackout in our home and gathered at a table to play cards with lit candles. He cuddled by our feet and fell asleep. At this time, we learned we had a snorer!
