Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
How I Work With Students
My style is integrative, collaborative, and client centered. I work within a multicultural framework, exploring stressors and concerns, and collaborate with client in seeking creative solutions to presenting problems using internal strengths as well as cultural and social supports. I feel honored to be a part of a client’s journey towards growth, self-awareness and emotional well-being.
