Approach to Therapy
I enter the therapy room as a human first, a therapist second.
As a queer bi-cultural woman, an immigrant, a mama, & a survivor of sorts, I join you with my lived experiences, education, & effective therapeutic skills. By offering a warm, non-judgemental, empathetic, trusting, and safe space, I am here to meet your unique needs, uncover your personal strengths and create strategies to live the life you value & deserve.
I am committed to cultural humility & work under the philosophy that our multiple intersecting identities (race, class, gender, sexuality, ability, culture) greatly impact our life experiences and mental well-being.
My approach to therapy is integrative, trauma-informed, anti-oppressive, anti-racist, intersectional, person-centered, and flexible. I draw from Narrative techniques, ACT, DBT, and CBT and follow a client-centered approach.
I approach therapy with the understanding that our many identities (culture, race, sexuality, ability, gender, etc.) greatly impact & inform our life experiences and mental wellbeing
I tailor my expertise to meet you where you are on your healing journey.
I genuinely welcome you to join me exactly as you are.
