If there was one thing you wish people knew about the therapy experience who might be hesitant to try it, what would that be?

People go seek medical treatment, physical therapy, chiropractic or other physical treatments for physical pain. Therapy is one form of treatment for your mental health. Like physical therapy, mental health therapy can be intense, but it can also be refreshing like a mental massage. Therapy is not necessarily just for people who have mental illness. It can also be a chance for people to ease the tension in their minds and reconnect with themselves. And just like the physical treatments, sometimes it takes several tries to find the best fits for your needs.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

My personal therapy style is existential therapy. Existentialism is not only my clinical approach but also my personal life philosophy. Existential framework helps me make sense of my own life. However, I do not always focus on existential issues in my clinical practice. I believe that there are many different ways to heal and people are the experts of their own lives. At the end of the day, what is most important is what make sense to clients in their lives. Thus, I also utilize clinical tools from all different kinds of therapy approaches to help my clients get where they want to go.

What do you view as a key component of the therapeutic relationship?

I think the key component of the therapeutic relationship is trust. Trust is a foundation to creating a safe space, and is essential to building a therapeutic relationship that allows growth and change.

Work History

I have been working in as a marriage and family therapist since 2017 and have worked with individuals, children, and families from diverse cultural backgrounds. Throughout my years of training and working, I have gained a lot of experience working with clients with anxiety, depression, and trauma history. I specialize in communication issues and family relationships. I like using creative interventions and frameworks that make sense the most for clients in my practice.
