My personal and professional developments have taught me to celebrate diversity, exemplify self-awareness, inquire, learn, teach, and to use those aptitudes in service of others. I am fervent in my desire to understand each individual’s uniqueness while also embracing the shared threads of humanity. I hear similarities in fears, dreams, desires, and insecurities across cultures. These parallels accentuate the need within us all to be understood and have empathetic connections. This is central to my therapeutic work.
