I take multicultural counseling seriously because I identify as a bicultural person. I was born and raised in Estonia and moved to the United Kingdom in my early twenties.
After a ten-year career in the corporate sector in London, I moved to the US to join my family. All my life, I’ve had to adapt to the dominant culture and learn how to succeed despite language and cultural differences.
I know what it means to acculturate and build new connections, grieve the past, question identity, navigate intercultural relationships, and start a new career.
My immigrant identity makes me a humble explorer and empathetic to my client’s values, beliefs, behavioral norms, and expectations.
I am fortunate because I have the ability to see my client as they are and not through a dominant culture lens and all the expectations that come with that view. I respect and enjoy differences and stand by marginalized communities because being transcultural is a major part of my identity.
I am committed to social justice and anti-oppression work and accept Oregon Health Plan (OHP) and can offer pro-bono and sliding scale slots to qualified BIPOC clients and refugees.
