About Me

Hi, I’m a licensed clinical psychologist, and I have specialized experience working with culturally diverse adults struggling with PTSD, anxiety, depression, shame, and relationship difficulties. Moreover, I have a subspecialty treating mental health symptoms influenced by women specific issues, such as postpartum depression, menopause, gender role challenges, and body image concerns. I also help couples who want to develop deeper intimacy, increase emotional safety, and communicate more effectively with one another. Overall, my passion lies in helping people 1) address shame by cultivating self-compassion, 2) develop healthy relationship boundaries, and 3) live a values-based lifestyle. In all my work, I prioritize creating a space of radical acceptance and safety for individuals to examine their lives honestly and accurately. Offering culturally sensitive and informed treatment is of an utmost importance to me, in order to facilitate a safe and meaningful relationship. I am confident that radically genuine living is a life worth living, and I strive to help patients develop an inner haven through which they can live unapologetically as their true selves.

Education & Experience

I obtained my M.A. and Ph.D. from Rosemead School of Psychology and have worked with individuals with various mental health concerns (e.g., depression, anxiety, OCD, personality disorders, PTSD, ADHD, relationship difficulties). Over the past 4 years I have honed a specialty in trauma and am passionate about helping individuals heal from relational trauma, set healthy boundaries, decrease shame and perfectionism, and navigate women's health issues (if applicable).
