Message to clients

I focus on developing a respectful relationship and strive to create a positive environment in which you feel comfortable asking questions and sharing stories. Further, I believe in setting achievable goals to help individuals grow professionally and personally. Most importantly, I encourage an open dialogue to discuss your goals and challenges, and I will adjust my approach to best support you. I am sensitive to the needs of each individual.

I left my comfort zone and embraced challenges when relocating to the United States. Not surprisingly, immigrants experience insecurity, uncertainty, and loneliness, which increases stress and can easily affect a person's well-being. This experience led me to study clinical mental health counseling at Lesley University and then complete my advanced nursing education at Simmons University. After years of training in the medical field, I am confident and competent to further my counseling journey.
