Drawing from my personal experience as an immigrant myself, I understand the complexities and emotional challenges that come with adapting to a new culture and environment. This unique perspective allows me to connect deeply with my clients, offering a safe space for them to explore their feelings and navigate the unique stressors they encounter.
