About My Clients

Are you a person of color who have been struggling with excessive worries, anxiety attacks, feeling depleted trying to juggle many expectations and responsibilities, perhaps difficulties getting to a relaxed mode, and/or relational challenges (peer, co-workers, or families)? Many have lost touch with their inner wisdom and confidence. Holistic practices can reduce anxiety tremendously, and I look forward to sharing tools so that you're able to take your life back.

My Background and Approach

With over 23 years of providing therapy, I'm able to incorporate various mind-body-emotion-spirit approaches with multicultural, feminist, and systemic frames. I have facilitated healing for hundreds of clients, and my goals is for you to have at least five different techniques and tools that you can use at different times. You can expect to learn about what happens to your brain, your body, start to notice the patterns of your life and response, and learn different resilience tools to feel more grounded and reconnect with your inner power and centeredness, so that you are more at ease with yourself and with others, even with life's ups and downs.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Life could present with variety of wounding and soul depleting experiences that could trigger emotional upheavals, shape how we navigate our world full of racism, sexism, heterosexism, etc. I don’t believe in simply relieving the symptoms of anxiety or trauma. Through my own history of trying to "prove" my worth (unconscious at the time), I have had to heal from anxious-driven behaviors and burnouts. Through my journey as a 1st-gen immigrant, previously a 1st-gen college student with very limited financial resources, and familial mental health struggles, I believe strongly in prioritizing our own healing so that I don't project my "sh--" on others, and I give back to the community in different ways (as a consultant, workshop presenter, etc.). I look forward to walking this journey with you, to empower your capacity to come into your true, powerfully unique you, connected to your spirit and community, even with the world's upheavals swirling around you.
