Message to clients

As a first-generation immigrant with a bicultural identity, it is an unspoken understanding that conversations about mental health can feel stigmatizing, therefore are often neglected. My passion is to normalize mental health and therapy as an integral part of wellness.

Taking the first step towards therapy is an act of self-love. It can be a liberating solution to creating an authentic and fulfilling life even when doing so feels scary. I strive to create a non-judgmental and compassionate space, and to help you realize that while life may feel burdensome, your journey to restoring balance and wholeness is possible.

I value creating connection and healthy spaces for individuals to reach the depths of healing and inner peace, all while thriving in life. There’s beauty in the struggle of finding where you fit in the mold of your unique environments and cultures. Let’s talk about your story together, and find the balance going forward that is most authentic to you.
