Work History

Certified Level One Solutions Focused Therapist and received specialized training in Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) and Habit Reversal Training (HRT). Completed Basic training in EMDR (Part 1 and 2) and the Flash Technique for the treatment of PTSD and C-PTSD. Work is focused on individuals experiencing neurodivergent issues, gifted learners, individuals coping with managing life transitions, women’s mental health issues around shifting roles in family and career. Provider member of the Lotus Therapy Fund and Open Path Collective. Special interest in immigration/re-entry adjustment stressors. Bring lived experience of growing up outside the United States. Born in Asia, and raised in Western and Eastern Canada, before immigrating for the second time in my life as an adult to California. Immigration in particular is a process I have been very personally affected by. Both times as a newcomer, despite going through the legal process, is a unique kind of stressor. This experience has shaped both my personal and professional perspectives on relocation, integration, and community connection. I am an LMFT in California, Massachusetts, and Virginia. Registered Out of State Telehealth Provider for Florida and Vermont.
