She is trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Motivational Interviewing, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Moral Reconation Therapy (MRT).

Her approach in therapy comes from a multicultural, strength-based, and trauma-informed lens. In addition, she provides special insights on issues with diversity such as acculturation, immigration, resettlement etc. and its correlation with mental health.
