Multiculturalism and identity
Counseling for women

Surviving Domestic Violence
I am fluent in both English and American Sign Language (ASL) and was trained as a counselor from a feminist-multicultural perspective. My goal is to work collaboratively with individuals to improve relationships, increase authenticity and self-awareness, gain healthy coping skills, and explore personal values, identity, and spirituality. My approach is relational-cultural, as each client lives at the intersection of their culture and their unique identity. One of my main goals is to make counseling services accessible to members of the Deaf community and their family members.
