“You deserve to feel acknowledged, validated, and affirmed. “

This can be challenging when balancing the impact of acculturative stress with your personal goals. As a bicultural therapist, I aim to work with individuals who are seeking the opportunity to re-examine their storyline and get creative in unpacking their identity.

This is not an easy step to take! And sometimes we just need to incorporate something playful to reconnect with our whole self. Coupling art practice with talk therapy can safely offer deep reflection, using the work you create as a tool to access your feelings.

When was the last time you allowed yourself to fill an entire page of paper with crayons? Did you check in with your body and allow yourself to feel the weight of the crayon in your hand? How about taking a moment to run your fingers across the waxy colorful lines? Art making can be an immersive experience. I urge you to consider this mindful way of reflection as a way to engage with your intersectional being.

My practice is rooted in a social work background.

With this trauma-informed lens, I am committed to acknowledging ways in which systemic injustice can impact our perspective of ourselves, our loved ones, and our environment. Together we can deconstruct problem-focused narratives and lean into a lifelong journey of healing through self-compassion.
