Growing up in an immigrant community, I witnessed the pain and suffering of friends and neighbors struggling from anxiety due to many life stressors, pressures, and hardships. This first-hand experience continues to motivate me in my clinical career where I am inspired by the fortitude and resilience of all my clients and their families.
