Who I Work  With

About Me . . .

As a public health professional, a dietitian, a therapist and as someone who has worked in the food industry. I have spent years watching people, working with others, serving people, teaching people, and learning from those around me.  I believe that the one thing we all want is to be seen, heard, and understood.  All this is in light of the complexities, "messiness," and beauty of relationships with others and, most especially ourselves.

 

As a culturally conscious therapist, my goal is to create safe spaces for people to learn and figure out who they are, what they want, and who they could be, and more without judgment. Regardless of faith, gender, culture, or race.

 

My Emphasis . . .

I am deeply committed to helping individuals, couples, families, and systems understand what drives us to do the things we do.  I assist in self-discovery, and ways to live to our fullest potential, be it alone or with others.  I  am also passionate about how our various cultural and family backgrounds also shape how we live, how we feel shame, and how we thrive.  My goal is to facilitate growth by awareness of one's past, working through one's present, and hope for the future, to create a more holistic sense of self that leads to lasting change, not only in our behaviors but also in how we see ourselves.

 

My Values . . .

I believe that knowledge is power, and I also believe strongly in the beauty of collaboration. I live by the awareness that my clients are the owners of their stories. My role is to 'walk' alongside them in the process with compassion and respect.

 

As an immigrant and woman of color myself, I recognize the struggles and concerns we face, especially when it comes to mental health and seeking out services.  My goals are to break down the barriers and stigmas that keep us stuck and explore ways to create our own identities in our world.
