She aims at building a safe, therapeutic holding space for her clients to freely explore themselves and to promote inner growth, self-awareness and creative coping. Mika has worked in the past 8 years in both New York City and Taiwan in a variety of clinical

One of my favorite writers, J.K. Rowling once said - "We do not need magic to change the world, we carry all the power we need inside ourselves already: we have the power to imagine better." - I humbly and sincerely invite you to give yourself permission to "imagine better" with me. **Please note that currently all sessions are conducted through phone.
