Not currently accepting patients

Hi there, I'm Lucky!

As a therapist, I provide a safe, client-centered space for you to process your thoughts and emotions, whether you are struggling with depression, anxiety, unhealthy behavioral patterns, irrational beliefs, or seeking to increase your overall well-being and embark on a healing journey. My role is to encourage, support, and guide you in your path towards self-discovery and growth.

My approach

I take a collaborative approach, working closely with you to create a personalized therapeutic plan tailored to your unique needs and goals. Drawing upon various therapeutic interventions, I help you develop coping skills through mindfulness practices, art, journaling, and activities that align with your interests. My aim is to be your ally and partner as we work together towards your personal growth and improvement.

My focus

I specialize in working with individuals facing a range of challenges, including anxiety, depression, behavioral issues, career concerns, codependency, cultural stress, divorce, emotional disturbance, family conflict, grief, job stress, mood disorders, relationship issues, self-esteem, stress management, and women's issues. I also provide life coaching and counseling for marital/pre-marital concerns.

My communication style

My communication style is warm, empathetic, and non-judgmental. I believe in creating a supportive and nurturing environment where you feel heard, understood, and validated. Through active listening and open dialogue, we will work together to explore your thoughts, feelings, and experiences, gaining insights and developing strategies for positive change.

My journey to mental healthcare

My journey to mental healthcare began with a deep passion for helping others navigate life's challenges and achieve emotional well-being. I earned my Master of Social Work (MSW) degree from the University of Southern California, where I gained a strong foundation in various therapeutic approaches. Over the years, I have honed my skills through extensive practice in diverse settings, including psychiatric hospitals and community mental health agencies, allowing me to develop a comprehensive understanding of mental health issues and effective interventions.

My goals for you

My primary goal is to empower you with the tools, insights, and self-awareness needed to overcome obstacles, build resilience, and lead a more fulfilling life. Through our therapeutic work together, I aim to help you gain a deeper understanding of yourself, strengthen your coping abilities, and develop healthier patterns of thinking and behaving. Ultimately, I strive to support you in achieving your personal goals and cultivating a greater sense of well-being and life satisfaction.
