Description of Counselor/Practice

Are you part of an amazing culture that prides itself in its foundational values such as family, faith, community and traditions? Does this part of your identity also tends to feel heavy at times? Are you a first generation person to attend college? get a good job? Are you that reliant, responsible person your family can always count on? Do you feel like you get stressed, feel depressed and anxious but at the same time you have to be strong for everyone else? I'd like the opportunity to sit and process some of that with you. As a Samoan woman, my culture centers around faith, family and community. I love being a part of my community, my tribe - but sometimes it can be stressful. Visit my website for more information, or contact me at and at (253) 652-2825.
