Being a first generation child of immigrant parents from two different countries, I grew up in a diverse experience and was exposed to being multicultural. With that being said, growing up within a culture in the home becomes challenging when interfaced with Western and/or other cultures. I remember struggling to figure out where I fit in and who I was. I remember wishing I had someone to help me navigate that journey. My goal is to help people with racial identity and the intersections that includes culture, gender, and relationships. This includes all races and genders.
With my specialty in racial identity, I work with clients in helping them elevate their self-esteem, identifying their sense of self, and recognizing relational patterns that are happening as a result of their family relationships. With a unique perspective of being multicultural, it allows me to be open and understanding of where people come from.
Doing self-work can be challenging and overwhelming in not knowing where to start. My goal is to help clients through their journey of self-work using a therapist-led and strength-based approach. I believe being authentic and culturally competent are vital in establishing a strong therapist-client relationship which contributes to client's success.
