Have you always thought about seeing a therapist, but perhaps your family or friends discouraged you, or you yourself were hesitant.

I want to commend you on taking the first step towards self-discovery, not only does it require a leap of faith, but surrendering. I promise to be a compassionate and patient throughout therapy sessions.

I want to learn more about how I can help you.

Therapy can be a very vulnerable process. It can also be a foreign concept, if you are a first generation child of immigrants, such as myself. If you are feeling “stuck” in the past, feeling misunderstood or unheard throughout different areas of your life, navigating through these challenges should not have to be done alone. You have come so far in your life, in spite of the trials and tribulations that you have experienced. The journey to self-love, can be heartbreaking. I have helped many young adults who are living more fulfilling lives today.

I am a Registered Associate Marriage and Family Therapist in California. I have earned a Masters’ degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Pacific Oaks College in Pasadena, CA. I am currently only providing telehealth to clients residing all throughout California. I specialize in: BIPOC (bicultural indigenous people of color), women of color, intergenerational trauma, HSP’s (highly sensitive person), anxiety disorders, depression, grief and loss, and life adjustment/ transitions. My therapeutic style is inclusive of one or a combination of: humanistic, person-centered, solution focused, cognitive behavioral. My hope for you is that you leave therapy feeling more empowered and lead a more satisfying life. Contact me below for a complementary 15 minute appointment.

” I’m trying to be a companion to you in your search and your exploration. I want to know, am I with you?
Is this the way it seems to you?
Is this the thing you’re trying to express?
Is this the meaning it has for you?
So in a sense I’m saying, I’m walking with you step by step, and I want to make sure I am with you. Am I with you? So that’s a little bit of my understanding about empathy. “
