If you are experiencing relational challenges related to parenting, partnership, or life transition, I would love to collaborate and walk with you through your challenges. Being a first-generation immigrant myself and raising children across borders as a BIPOC, I am familiar with the tension that comes from the differences in cultural/generational values/experiences. I would love to travel with those of you who identify as children of immigrants, people of color, or multi-racial/cultural.
I am a trained Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapist. EMDR is an evidence-based modality that has been effective with trauma-related disorders across a diverse population. It uses bilateral stimulation to reduce distressing symptoms & beliefs of trauma and develop positive adaptive beliefs. Maybe you find yourself stuck or feeling unhelpful as you tell your trauma stories over and over. Consider EMDR as your brain to access & process trauma and heal through integration.
Dialectical Behavior Therapy is an evidence-based modality that has shown to work with diverse populations. DBT skills are useful in slowing us down so that we can self-soothe to decrease reactivity & enhance communication to increase our relational effectiveness so we can connect with loved ones. I utilize DBT skills and practice with you in sessions so that you are ready when you find yourself in tough situations that require you to stick to your values in ways that honor you and others.
Our human experience is an ongoing process of loss, grief, and renewal. Loss comes in various forms and shapes impacting us on multiple levels and shaking us to our core. Are you mourning for a loved one or someone you can't allow yourself to mourn? Do you struggle with intense sadness and a sense of loss? For many of us, the pandemic has taken so much from us, many of us are in this process of grief, knowing we lost something. Let me offer you my companionship as you grieve.
