As a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist, I am committed to providing an environment centered around care, compassion, trust, integrity, and honesty to empower and encourage you on the journey of self-discovery to position you in a place to make helpful decisions to impact your relationships positively and fruitfully!
I work with individuals, couples, and families from diverse cultural backgrounds, many of whom are immigrants who are in the US for the purpose of employment in the high tech field. As a former software engineer myself, I can relate to the many struggles working in this field, ranging from highly competitive work environments, acculturation issues, to the high cost of living, and relationships at home. Many of these tack on to one's (already taxed) overall well-being. I also work with clients engaging in substance use that are impeding their ability to maintain healthy and meaningful relationships.
I combine techniques from Reality Therapy, Acceptance Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness, and EMDR to help resolve things that are preventing individuals, couples, and families of all ages and cultures from living the desired fruitful and meaningful lives.
