"I specialize in multicultural psychology which looks at the impact culture has on all aspects of behavior, including attitudes, feelings, development, relationships, identity, etc. I believe it is essential to take culture into account when understanding clients and their particular issues. For example, I work with individuals struggling with issues of ethnic and racial identity, with immigrants adjusting to a new culture, with immigrant parents who experience conflicts with children being raised in a different culture, and individuals who may be the victims of racism and discrimination.
I am also a psychology professor who teaches, does research, and publishes in the area of multicultural psychology. I bring almost 25 years experience as both a professor and a therapist to my work with my clients. I am also available to do training for your business or community organization in diversity and multicultural competence."
