Coming from a culture that tells us to suppress our feelings and not talk about what we are going through, I have an understanding of how important therapy is to us all. From a professional and personal level, I have seen firsthand how much therapy can help someone, even when they see no resolution. I have over 6 years of experience working with families, children, and individuals of different backgrounds. Being empathetic, listening without judgment, and having honest dialogue is what I have found helps me to connect with others. We are all going through something, please do not be afraid to reach out for help.

“We need JOY as we need air. We need LOVE as we need water. We need EACH OTHER as we need the earth we share.”
