I believe in practicing therapy from a holistic-based approach. I received graduate training in clinical mental health at Columbia University, am trained in mindfulness-based stress reduction, Reiki, and different types of yoga, including Hatha Yoga, Dancing Spider Kundalini Yoga, Yoga for Trauma and Addictions, and Kidding Around Yoga. I am passionate about helping others bring mindfulness “on the go,” and building on the power of connection and healing in the client-therapist relationship. I believe in building on the power of connection through different parts of the self, a community, and the world around us.
I have experience working with adults, children, and families who experience depression, domestic violence, low self esteem, anxiety, trauma, substance use, stress, anger, and rare medical conditions. I have engaged patients in exploring topics such as emotion regulation, distress tolerance, self care, mindfulness, acculturation, race, oppression, privilege, and sexuality. As Carl Jung once said, “I am not what has happened to me. I am what I choose to become.” I engage with others by creating and allowing space for one’s unique healing journey. I utilize a strengths-based approach to help others reach their unique goals, clear limitations, and reach one’s pure potentiality. As a first-generation American living in a multi-cultural family, I integrate this perspective in helping others realize their goals and dreams.
