I have a compassionate and strengths-based approach to therapy. I firmly believe that it is the relationship we build together that empowers you to work towards your goals. While treatment looks different for each person, I integrate techniques from cognitive-behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, psychodynamic theory, and trauma-informed practice into my work. As a child of immigrants, I am particularly interested in working with those who come from immigrant and/or refugee backgrounds where mental health may be stigmatized. I seek to create a nonjudgmental, safe, and supportive environment in therapy where you feel able to process and work towards making the changes you would like to make in your life.

Depending on how I feel, I curl up and read, go on a long walk/hike, have a cup of tea (and probably something sweet) and chat with a loved one, listen to music, go to a show, or watch a favorite movie.
Reading, hiking, spending time with family and friends, attending musicals and other live events, traveling.
