Please note: I am not currently accepting new patients.
I will have space in my practice beginning February 2023. Thank you for stopping by!
Welcome to my psychotherapy practice through The Marina Counseling Center. I am an individual and family therapist who specializes in complex trauma and relationship issues, especially in immigrant and cross-cultural families.
In the past, I worked as a therapist at an outpatient clinic for adults, a group counselor at a nature-based mindfulness program for children, a therapist for children and families experiencing homelessness, and an early childhood mental health consultant.
In my practice, I center the experiences of Queer, Trans, Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (QTBIPOC), who have been underestimated and marginalized by society.
Trauma, decontextualized in a person over time, looks like personality. Trauma, decontextualized in a family, looks like family traits. Trauma, decontextualized in a people, looks like culture... When we heal our own trauma, individually and collectively, we don’t just heal our bodies. By refusing to pass on the trauma we inherited, we help heal the world.
