Profile
“Being an immigrant myself and experiencing discrimination has shape the way I view others and the world.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
This is my first career; I have always loved working with and helping others. I have done this since I was a child, as my family has always participated in community support activities. I have assisted others during crises, like hurricanes and health challenges, at community and individual levels.
What should someone know about working with you?
In addition to obtaining basic demographic information, the intake process involves several steps driven by the information the individual is ready to share about themselves and why they are seeking treatment. Progress, or lack of, is assessed by both the individual and me to assure we are focused on the goals that the individual wants to accomplish. Because I am currently doing telehealth, I prefer to work with teenagers and adults.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I participate in several continuing education courses, but I am mostly interested in training related to trauma and working with teenagers.
How do your core values shape your approach to therapy?
Being an immigrant myself and experiencing discrimination has shape the way I view others and the world. I encourage individuality and believe remaining objective is the key to how we view others and ourselves as members of a family, a community, the workplace, and the world.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
I am excited that telehealth reaches more people, including those struggling to leave their homes. However, I am concerned about losing face-to-face contact and the ability to read body language, which is an important part of communication.
