I am currently working as a psychologist at the University of Pennsylvania’s Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS), and I have a part-time private practice on weekends. I have also worked as an adjunct instructor in the Counseling Psychology master’s program at Temple University. 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.
