I am a bilingual/bicultural therapist with more than two decades of experience providing support, family education, and counseling in culturally diverse settings with immigrant families, working through the adjustment and stress associated with displacement. My training as a graduate of the Harvard Program in Refugee Trauma has prepared me to offer a unique lens to understand the complexity of immigration trauma. Further training at the Immigration Evaluation Institute equipped me to execute and write immigration evaluation reports accurately and professionally. I have a doctorate in leadership in higher education. I strive to offer a welcoming environment with hospitality and a sincere relational approach that is culturally attuned.
Hi! I am a licensed mental health counselor who has been practicing since 2015. I specialize in writing evaluations that are unique and tailored to each situation.
Discussing personal information with a complete stranger can be scary, embarrassing, and difficult. Personally, I can't image how fearful this entire process must be for anyone working with US immigration. To help support you during the evaluation process, I aspire to create a sense of safety and understanding by being patient, non-judgmental, and compassionate while discussing your experiences.
If you find yourself overcome with emotion and require a moment to breathe, I offer a break. If you feel the need to reschedule to another day, I will be considerate of your needs.
I desire to help support, encourage, and empower you during our journey together knowing you have completed your evaluation and are ready to proceed to the next step in your journey.
I am looking forward to meeting you!
