Licensed marriage and family therapist
Sometimes we feel invisible to ourselves and within our social networks. It can be hard to express our needs and frustrations because we do not often get the opportunity to slow down and reflect on what we want for ourselves rather than what society or our families have taught us to prioritize, particularly when we come from immigrant family backgrounds which tend to favor the collective over the individual. I help people feel seen and heard and to develop a sense of their presence and impact in the world and within their most important relationships.
I earned my M.S. in Marriage & Family Therapy which provides me the framework to explore how relationships and social identity affect worldview and how people present themselves. My clinical interests include neurodiversity, chronic illness, relational conflict, multi-ethnic couples, gender role pressures, and issues related to gender and sexual identity.
Acknowledging that we are stuck can be a shameful and humbling experience since stoicism is often seen as more valuable than vulnerability. I am a firm believer in shopping around for a therapist until you find a good fit so feel free to reach out to schedule an intake session to see if I am a fit for you in this brave next step you are considering!
