Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
My specialties are MULTICULTURAL COUPLES, 1st and 2nd-generation Americans and individuals experiencing grief. I help multicultural couples with the pitfalls of having conflicting values, beliefs, traditions and rituals. Having been in a mixed marriage for more than 20 years, I am sensitive to the challenges of this population. I also help multicultural individuals get comfortable with their identity which is crucial for them as they navigate the issues of belongingness. I am mother to a biracial child. I understand how it is to raise a multicultural family with at times conflicting priorities. I also have a certificate in bereavement counseling. A former School Counselor for children, I assist parents in understanding their children's behaviors and help the whole family move towards healthier dynamics. I also facilitate groups as I have seen how the power of community and accountability help in moving my clients towards their goals. I am an engaged clinician and helping you achieve your goal in the least amount of time is also my goal.
