I am passionate about racial equality and realize that many people of color have faced rejection, oppression, violence, and hatred due to their skin color, which can have profound effects on one's mental health. In addition, I understand the beauty and struggle that comes from being bi-cultural and navigating two cultures.  Much of my own passion and understanding around these issues comes from my own lived experience as a woman of color and daughter of immigrants.   Much of our work will focus on examining the meanings and messages you've internalized(through no fault of your own) around your racial and ethnic identity and how those messages hinder and/or help the life you want to live.
