As a member of a minority group, I observed firsthand how the lack of culturally informed psychotherapy was a barrier to care. I became a therapist to help fill this gap and create greater access to care for people from all cultural backgrounds.

My approach to psychotherapy is relational. I use CBT, DBT, and systems theory filtered through a multicultural lens for interventions. When working with children and teens, working with families is critical to helping them get well and thrive.

I started my clinical training at Adolescent Counseling Services, providing school-based therapy to children and teens. In my work at the Miri Center, I provided educationally related mental health services (ERMHS) to diverse children and adolescents with individual education plans (IEPs) and 504 plans.

I have extensive experience working with youth and their families, providing individual and family therapy to address various clinical issues such as anxiety, depression, ADHD, parent-child relationship issues, anger, school refusal, learning disabilities, trauma, relationships, and life transitions. In addition to my school counseling experience, I have been providing outpatient psychotherapy since 2018 and also have experience teaching DBT skills groups to teens in IOP and outpatient settings.
