We encounter many transitions in our lives. Transitions often come with intense life events such as moving to a new country, going through a divorce or losing a loved one. They also come at different stages of life like being an adolescent or growing older. You might feel depressed, anxious, frustrated and lost. Together we address issues of identity, interpersonal relationships, grief & loss, loneliness, immigration, and aging.

I work with adolescents, adults, seniors, and families. I support clients in connecting with their feelings, authentic selves, and insights from challenging situations. My therapeutic style is compassionate, interactive and non-judgmental. Besides talk therapy, I may integrate experiential exercise, role play, and expressive arts approaches depending on your readiness and interest. In our work, we re-examine the blocks in your life and create a new way of relating to them.

I hold a Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology with a concentration in Drama Therapy from California Institute of Integral Studies and have worked in school, assisted living house, residential treatment program. I also provide grief counseling at Hospice by the Bay and on-going psychotherapy for transitional age youth at Greenlight Clinic.
