I incorporate a social justice lens to analyze how our identities, cultural, and social forces impact our mental health.

My Therapy Style

Being raised in an immigrant, working-class family taught me the value of respect, humility, and looking out for one another. I carry these values in any space I operate in, whether it's in my own family or professional space. It can be a struggle to reach out for help when you might be disconnected from yourself and others, which is why I value you reaching out to me. I help address issues regarding your past, present, and future self. To heal, I help you take steps to break negative generational cycles. I incorporate a social justice lens to analyze how our identities, cultural, and social forces impact our mental health.
