    • From her Web site: "I bring a background in social justice activism and organizing and my own experiences with oppression allow me to bring a sensitivity to how being different in the world can impact one’s inner experience and relationships with self and others. My personal cultural experiences give me particular competence working with people of Asian descent and those who come from mixed race backgrounds. While my experiences may not be identical to yours, I welcome the opportunity to explore your goals and challenges through a respectful and compassionate lens informed by social justice thinking."
