Interns and Psychological Assistants are mental health professionals who are in the process of getting licensed and are approved to provide psychotherapy under the supervision of a licensed therapist. While every individual I supervise has their own views and style, in my practice we all share values of inclusion and acceptance of a range of identities and experiences. As part of my practice, they provide sliding scale fees, and you can ask them directly to determine what your fee would be. See below for more information about the interns I am currently supervising in my practice.

I am the proud daughter of two immigrant parents. Through the narratives of my own family members and those whom I have been privileged to work with, I have become well acquainted with the complexities of the immigration process. I work from a trauma-informed lens and have dedicated most of my clinical work to individuals who have experienced challenges around the immigration process, such as exposure to trauma, separation and unification with their families, and daily challenges of assimilation, acculturation, and discrimination.
Our current political climate has had a detrimental impact on our communities of color and in particular immigrants. Immigrants face complex systemic challenges that impact their overall health and well-being, thus impacting their capacity to manage every day stressors. I believe in social justice, cultural humility, and empowerment for the people I serve. All people deserve adequate and culturally responsive services!
I graduated with a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology at The Wright Institute in 2017. My clinical work and training has also consisted of: PTSD/Trauma, exposure to community violence, homelessness, intimate partner violence/domestic violence, depression, anxiety, crisis intervention, and advocacy. I provide individual, infant-parent, family and couples psychotherapy. I am currently working toward licensure, under the supervision of Dr. Zoe Barnow.
