My clinical interests and work focuses on supporting clients in resolving the psychological and transgenerational impacts of first and second generation American experiences including risky health behaviors; anxiety and shame; fear-based “survival messages”; cultural expectation for career, marriage and family;  food hoarding; overeating;  authoritarian parenting styles; high emotional neediness on the part of parents and low community trust and cohesiveness. Among the clinical mental health disorders, I specialize in assessing, diagnosing and treating anxiety, depression and PTSD .
