I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor as well as Board Certified Dance/Movement Therapist. My training in Dance/Movement Therapy (DMT) allows me to integrate the wisdom of the body with the mind so that the work can happen on verbal and non-verbal processes. I am also certified Laban movement analyst which gives me a framework for examining movement and the body when working with my clients.

Currently my primary clientele are children, adolescent, and young adults. I have extensive clinical experience working with children (3 and up) and adolescents in various setting including inpatient acute care, outpatient, and academic settings. I incorporate individual and group/ family (if applicable) sessions in order to explore from various angles. I have found that having a non-verbal modality is extremely helpful when working with children as they are often times unable to verbalize their trauma, anxiety, grief, etc. This also applies to adults and I have found that inviting clients to experience and be in their bodies bring about major shifts in their healing processes.

As a bicultural being I am passionate about how culture and acculturation processes impact us on various levels. I believe that this allows me to connect with clients from different cultural backgrounds with compassion and appreciation. I have had the privilege of working with international students, IB program students, and returnees throughout the years. As a returnee and being an international student myself, I know how difficult it can be to negotiate and hold the often times polarized experiences and world views. I believe that I bring a deep understanding of how to bridge the differences.
