People do not exist in a vacuum. The person you are today is a collage of various influences and experiences. These influences range from relationships with family and friends, community, religion, spiritual beliefs, socioeconomic backgrounds, education, and the culture in which you were raised. What brought you in today does not solely define you and it may not be the root of your pain.
Through therapy, we have the potential to move beneath the surface and go deeper into the roots of your struggles to help you develop a greater understanding of what troubles you. In therapy, we will explore together your past and present at your own pace. Therapy is not a race to recovery, but rather an ongoing journey filled with healing and self-discovery. I will not make demands of you or make judgments; nor will I take the compass and lead the way. This is your journey. Your awakening. Your permission to become you.
Currently, I am a Marriage and Family Therapist trainee working towards a Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology at Santa Clara University. I love to watch films, engage in creative writing, cooking, and the occasional hike.
