I strive to provide an empowering and supportive safe/brave space to my clients. My practice and presence are continually shaping to affirm and center the experiences of marginalization and exclusion that my clients experience. I also hold space for existential and spiritual contemplations of self exploration and growth. I hold an intersectional perspective on identity formation and negotiation, and celebrate difference. I am currently accepting clients for telehealth services only.
I use tenets of ACT in my work as it holistically encapsulates the essence of true healing: learning skills while being holistically congruent with oneself.
I have extensive training in Gestalt therapy as a therapeutic modality that has an existential-humanistic leaning.
I use tenets of Existential Humanistic therapy in my work, as I believe that we all gravitate naturally towards self-determination and holistic congruence. Self-examination and self-awareness are key steps for this - supported in therapy. I use core tenets of Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT): such as self-acceptance, emotional regulation systems, and compassionate/content living.
As a therapist and individual, I am keenly aware of the challenges of today’s sociocultural environment in our country and strive to do therapy that meets the unique needs and challenges of my clients – from a place of cultural humility and understanding of my own intersections of privilege/marginalization. Therapy is your place to heal, thrive and rebuild your resources to continue living.
As a queer immigrant of color, I am personally familiar with the challenges we experience and navigate as individuals and a community. I am keenly aware of the healing and collaboration we need to work towards within our community, and the activism for rights and freedoms still left to do outside of it.
Too often we are told we are not good enough and we need to change how we look, sound, move etc. Entire businesses run on making us feel less than. In such a cultural environment, being ourselves fully and unapologetically is the best revolution we can engage in. I work with clients using tenets of HAES and Intuitive Eating to create tailored programs of radical self love and body diversity.
In an uncertain and scary world, where we are all encountering fear, losses and helplessness everyday, it is more critical than ever to reach out to and seek mental health support. I offer telehealth services and offer reduced rate slots with an aim to increase accessibility to all clients.
I specialize in working with individuals experiencing anxiety, phobias or panic attacks. I also focus on working with individuals navigating post-trauma recovery and living with PTSD. I use tenets of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) and other current trauma informed modalities to create an individually-tailored therapeutic approach for my clients.
