I am grounded in a holistic approach that takes into consideration and addresses all parts of your life — physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, environmental. These aspects affect your overall health. If you are unwell in one aspect of your life, all aspects of your life are affected. Growing up as an immigrant in the United States, I experienced culture shock, ambiguous loss, and acculturation issues. I had to define – and am defining – who I am in the midst of a dominant culture. As a result, therapy is not one size fits all, and I tailor my approach in therapy to allow my clients the ability to empower themselves, support personal growth, and live their own authentic lives.
Therapy with me is down to earth. My approach is warm, inviting, collaborative and affirming. Therapy asks us to be open and vulnerable, which can be scary and overwhelming. People need to feel that they are comfortable with me, that they are at home in the therapy space, and that they are not alone in their personal journey. As a bicultural and bilingual practitioner, I incorporate a client’s strengths and cultural identity into the therapy space by drawing on relational-cultural therapy, trauma-informed therapy, object relations therapy, and feminist therapy. By implementing a client’s cultural practices, rituals, and traditions in the therapy room, clients are able to honor their inner selves, the practices they have in place, future generations, and their ancestors.

IntraSpectrum Counseling is incensed by today’s U.S. Supreme Court ruling overturning Roe v. Wade. We are equally appalled at Justice Clarence Thomas’s statement that SCOTUS should next reconsider the Griswold, Obergefell and Lawrence cases that, respectively, safeguard the right to contraception, legalize same-sex marriage, and protects the right to private, consensual sex. Today’s ruling is a massive setback to long-standing, fundamental rights to bodily autonomy & reproductive freedom. The impact on lives will be immediate and irreversible – disproportionately affecting people of color and those of limited financial means. Our basic freedoms are under attack. Women are under attack. LGBTQ+ people are under attack. BIPOC people are under attack. And we are outraged. IntraSpectrum Counseling stands firmly alongside the Biden Administration, the U.S. Justice Department and the millions of American citizens who support access to abortion and reproductive justice. We support the vital work to re-establish our constitutional foundation for reproductive justice and freedom. We will never give up.
