I identify as a woman of color and first generation child of immigrants/refugees. I am passionate about destigmatizing mental health in immigrant and BIPOC communities and emphasizing the importance of mental health.
I have experience working with clients with chronic illnesses including cancer and challenges adjusting to lifestyle, relationships and decision making. I also specialize in bereavement and grief, depression, stress, and anxiety.
It is important for me to create a safe space for my clients to be vulnerable. I like to use humor when appropriate and encourage you to be open and honest with me. I will support you and guide you to your goals and follow your lead along the way.
I graduated with my Bachelor’s in Sociology at the University of Southern California. and my Master’s in Social Work from Columbia University. I completed additional training in advanced cognitive behavioral therapy at NYU and mindfulness-based stress reduction program at UMass Memorial Medical Center. I lead support groups for cancer patients in mindfulness and guided imagery to address anxiety, stress, and depression.
