My Therapy Style

My style is warm and mindful as well as compassionate and empathetic. I meet the client where they are with no judgment. Since I was a young girl, I have always been in a helping role. My parents immigrated to the United States and I gained a great deal of empathy from that experience. I have a gift and love to share it to help others be the best version of themselves. I love what I do and appreciate hearing my patient's stories. It is fulfilling to see clients grow, heal, and have hope.

Education & Training

MSW - Social Work, University of Southern California

Get to Know Me

What are your interests outside of work?

I like to read, dance, travel (I studied abroad in Spain for My Spanish Literature BA) and love to try new ethnic foods. I love music in other languages. I enjoy spending time with my dogs and my boys.

What is one thing you do daily that supports your well-being?

I tap into all my senses and make time to meditate, calm my brain, and connect with my body. I enjoy long walks, going to the beach, and going to therapy myself.

Favorite organization/non-profit?

Craniofacial CCA. My son was born with a rare condition and I everyone to feel a sense of belonging. I also support the African Alliance because the refugees remind me of being a first-generation American. The issues of immigration are close to me as my parents and I have been in those familiar circumstances of a first-generation family in a new, foreign country

How do you recharge?

I take a long bath or hot tub, light up incense and play relaxing music, or listen to a guided meditation

Do you have any pets?

Yes, I have two dogs, a guinea pig, and a bird.
