Therapeutic Style:

My theoretical orientation is informed by interpersonal, multicultural, feminist, and mindfulness-based  approaches.

Supervision Style:

I use a developmental and interpersonal approach to supervision with an overlay of multicultural focus. I strive to maintain a balance between support and challenge as I encourage my supervisees to stretch themselves out of their comfort zone. I try to create a collaborative environment to facilitate development of clinical skills, multicultural competence, and therapy style that fits with supervisee’s theoretical orientation, worldviews and interpersonal style. Discussions in supervision also focus on awareness of on cultural identities as they relate to therapy work and professional development issues.

My professional interests include cultural adjustment of international students and immigrants, use of mindfulness approach in therapy, gender socialization, grief and loss issues and mentoring and supervision in professional psychology training

Groups and Liaison Roles:

I co-facilitate Memory Circle, which is a group for students with grief and loss issue. I serve as a liaison to Office of International Affairs. 

Education background:
