Therapy Style

I am a female immigrant psychologist who helps individuals experiencing self-doubt, anxiety, and stress to create room for joy, confidence, and wellness.

I am very gentle in my approach, even when we work through painful and uncomfortable issues. It is important to me that I respect my clients’ pace in the journey. That’s why I actively look for feedback and adjust if needed. My clients usually seek me because of my cultural background, ability to connect beyond their preferred language, and commitment to their wellbeing.

What are your interests outside of work?

I enjoy being in nature (e.g. surfing), experimenting with new recipes, and spending time with family.

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

Exercising and yoga are big supporters of my own well-being.

What book have you read more than once?

I love reading The Storyteller by Jodi Picoult because it describes characters as a whole with the good and the bad. Making the reading experience more real.

How do you recharge?

Working out helps balance my energy and mood, walking on the beach and letting my feet touch the sand is my preferred stress-reliever.
