Our relationships with ourselves can be complicated. Together, let’s better understand how your life circumstances have gotten you to where you are today. What is working for you? What is not working for you? How is your relationship with yourself affecting your relationships with others?
The beauty of therapy is that, despite your level of familiarity with psychology, your entry point is exactly where you need to be. Doing deep personal work is accessible to everyone, as long as you are willing to do it. My role as a therapist is to help you find that access point, no matter how new or experienced you are to the process of self-discovery.
My interest in therapy began in my freshman year of college, when I sought out services at my college’s counseling center. The support that I have experienced in this therapeutic relationship has been invaluable to my growth and emotional maturity. I hope to be able to provide that for my clients.
I am a Bay Area native. I enjoy cooking, hiking, reading, and traveling.
I completed my master of arts degree in social welfare at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA), where I also worked at the UCLA Counseling Center. Prior to that, I worked at a men’s homeless shelter in Skid Row in Los Angeles. I also have experience working in non-profit management in New York City.
I naturally feel empathetic towards others. I am fascinated by people, what they have been through and the resiliency that they have developed as a result. I relate the strengths that I see in my clients to my clients, helping build up their self-esteem and confidence. One of the most gratifying aspects about therapy is helping people identify what they like about themselves and observing their self-confidence blossom.
I am good at making clients feel comfortable, especially those who have never been to therapy before. My attitude and perspective remain nonjudgmental and supportive.
In my practice, I pull from psychodynamic, relational and strengths-based ideologies. I do my best to be approachable, compassionate and thoughtful in my work.
