I understand that mental health is culture bound and multi-pronged phenomenon and I appreciate the varied mediums through which successful healing can happen. I particularly enjoy working with young-middle aged adults, students/working, women and individuals holding marginalized identities, international populations, bi-cultural individuals; mental health concerns (mood/anxiety) in the context of acculturative stress, feminist concerns, identity issues, minority stress, interpersonal relationships, among others.

Both as a psychologist and clinical supervisor, the foundation of my work lies predominantly in relational, person-centered; and feminist/multicultural approaches. This is because I believe that my relationship with another individual is central and fundamental to my capacity to influence meaningful change within them. I ensure a space where individuals and groups feel respected, heard and understood.
