As an Asian American therapist, I’ve helped many immigrant and Asian American clients focus on issues of identity and personal agency.
I work collaboratively with my clients to help them understand the thought patterns, belief systems, and expectations that influence how they move through the world. It is a process whereby, together, we bring the hidden pushes and pulls of their lives into clearer relief and empower them to make the desired changes in their lives.

I believe that the ultimate goal of therapy is to alleviate pain and suffering, and that everyone has the capacity for growth and change. By developing a caring, empathic, and trusting relationship with my clients, it becomes possible to gain insight and clarity about relationships, problems and personal patterns. It is through this process that one can grow and realize a level of peace and acceptance. I also believe that genuine growth is only possible when I view the clients I work with through the lens of multiple personal identities (e.g., sexual orientation, gender) and cultural identities (e.g., race/ethnicity, religion). I am proficient in Mandarin and can understand 3 other Chinese dialects. Having lived in Asia a significant part of my life, I am familiar with Asian cultural issues.

Reaching out for help is a vital first step in addressing the challenges we face. My goal as your therapist is to foster a safe space, without judgment, for you to explore those challenges and work through your thoughts freely. Every individual is unique and has their own experiences. How those experiences and your beliefs shape the struggles and strengths are important to me. Together, we will approach challenges with curiosity and care rather than hunt for a diagnosis and “cure.” With patience and consistency, we will build and actualize a treatment plan for your journey towards self-growth.

As a former Asian international student, I juggled multiple cultures, experienced self-judgment, loneliness, and worried about being off track without a plan. I used to believe I can "fix" my feelings and emotions with each accomplishment and recognition. It's never enough as the bar gets higher and higher for me. The need for validation from others actually created more anxiety and depression, making it addictive to hear praise, acceptance, and acknowledgment in all aspects of life. However, the journey to grow into a psychotherapist changed my belief system. I'm now a believer of self-validation.
