What Brings Me A Sense of Ease

When I am not counseling, teaching, or doing counseling research you will find me going on walks with friends, grabbing a boba, or watching the latest sci-fi movie.

In my counseling practice, I offer a safe, collaborative, compassionate space for clients to process their past, life transitions, struggles and other issues. I draw from different theoretical orientations and tailor interventions to a client’s needs.

In general, as a certified EMDR Therapist, I tend use the adaptive information processing approach in eye movement desensitization processing (EMDR) treatment for trauma and negative life experiences, along with a systems approach, psychodynamic, with a framework seated within a multiculturally competent social justice advocacy and feminist approach lens to guide my work with diverse groups of clients.

While I specialize in providing EMDR for trauma treatment, I also provide systemic and psychodynamic counseling for clients who are going through life transitions and relationship struggles.

During our first session, we can discuss the challenges you have and identify which of these approaches might best fit your needs
