Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Albany, NY

About My Clients

My clients and I work together to navigate through mental health challenges and transitions in life. I specialize in working with people with gender dysphoria and those in the process of transition. Furthermore, I help my clients navigate issues related to racial identity and minority experiences. I work with various relationship types and forms, non-monogamy included.

My Background and Approach

Although there are thousands of treatment methods and approaches, establishing a safe and trusting therapeutic rapport is often the core of effective therapy. Working with clients, I take a person-centered, strength-based approach. I like meeting clients where they are and helping them to set up practical and tangible goals that make the most sense to them. I enjoy helping couples, partners and families achieve a greater sense of unity and satisfaction in their lives. Some of the tools I use include Emotionally Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing and Internal Family Systems Therapy. Counseling services can also be provided through Mandarin upon request.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Your feelings and emotional needs matter! We all have the capacity to heal, but we may not have been provided with the tools and space to do so. Embracing who one is allows one's life to flourish, since one's true self is rooted in authenticity and compassion. I'm happy to provide that safe space for you and support you on the journey of discovering yourself and pursuing the life you desire to live!
