Therapy Style

I am a bilingual licensed clinical social worker with 10+ years of clinical mental health experience. Before my clinical work, I worked with underserved communities, providing advocacy and skills to promote wellbeing for 10+ years. I served adults with severe to mild persistent mental illness. I have undergone training enabling me to serve a variety of clients. I work with a range of clients.

Additionally, I utilize my training and experience to work with immigrants seeking residency in the United States. I work closely with immigration lawyers to complete psychological assessments to support a path to citizenship or obtain visas to reside in the United States. In addition to my clinical training, I am also a Gender Affirming Advocate with the LGBTQ+ community, emphasizing writing supporting letters to transgender and non-binary individuals. I have continuously attended training to ensure that I am well equipped to provide quality care to all my clients. My personal and professional experience helps me serve clients with compassion, integrity, and the skills necessary to promote a foundation for an authentic and fulfilling life. I look forward to joining you in your path of healing, insight, and self-discovery.
