I am a licensed counseling psychologist practicing in Center City. I approach clinical work from a relational and multicultural framework, and I strive to ground my work in principles of social justice. I enjoy working with clients to address family of origin and relational concerns as well as around issues of trauma (in the broadest definition, including racial trauma, intergenerational trauma, and identity-based trauma), grief and loss, and eating concerns. As a 1.5 generation immigrant, I specialize in working with immigrants, refugees, and third-culture kids and center the complexity of cultural identities in understanding human experiences. I integrate psychodynamic approaches with Somatic Experiencing(r), which is a powerful body-based modality focused on healing trauma through nervous system regulation.
