I integrate mindfulness and an Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) approach, along with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and several other approaches to help you develop a stronger relationship with yourself. In our sessions together, I'll meet you with compassion and evidence-based techniques so you can overcome the thoughts and habits holding you back. All of this comes from a strength-based, trauma-informed, culturally informed perspective where we will identify your strengths and your plan to help yourself heal. I'm here to help and understand that seeking therapy can feel overwhelming and scary but you're making the right choice.

I was President of the Asian American Caucus on Campus, had an emphasis on Administration and Justice as well as an emphasis in Children and Families.
I have been working in the social work and counseling field for many, many years. I have worked with family's in the midst of change, teens and adolescence in chaos and disruption, and have worked in a crisis unit where children were placed because they wanted to hurt themselves. I've also worked with seniors with life change issues, and with adults who suffer from anxiety and depression.
