My approach is client-centered, strength-based, solution-focused, and includes explorations of mindfulness techniques, promoting quality of life, finding meaning and purpose in the face of adversity, creating healthy boundaries, and the use and practice of coping skills based on clients’ unique strengths and personal and cultural background. My approach is also strongly influenced by modalities and theories such as Internal Family Systems, neuroscience (particularly having participated in three years of neuropsychological research on stress/learning and memory), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing, Client-Centered Therapy, Emotionally-Focused Therapy (EFT), Mindfulness Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, psychodynamic, and Attachment Theory.
Change is the only thing we are certain of in life, besides death. In my clients, a common theme in therapy session tend to be regarding grief. In our human condition, any change, even the fact that we've lost yesterday and it is a fact that it will never come back again, can bring a sense of grief. Often, there are current situations which subconsciously brings up emotions from decades ago, often painful memories, once buried, that wants to be heard, seen and felt through now toward more wholeness and healing. This is a significant grieving process. This work isn't always easy, but it is always worth it. That said, the precursor to this work, managing the current triggers with coping skills and techniques is also often a strong theme. These are all steps on this profound journey available to us, should we elect to take the challenge of authenticity and growth, and hope toward the abundant rewards that it often leads to.
As an Asian American woman growing up in the US since age 9, I have a personal understanding of how to successfully navigate multicultural systems, especially those of Eastern and Western combined backgrounds. I have had a rich life experience as a classical musical artist before mid-life. I find that having lived a full life before becoming a counselor, and in particular as a minority as well as being a woman, allows me to provide informed client care with an added capacity to empathize with the human condition. In my personal life, I am a caregiver for my elderly mother who has survived two cancers. In my work in hospice and psychiatric facilities, common themes with clients have been anxiety, depression, family/intimate relationships, family of origin, existential questions/facing mortality, compassion fatigue, caregiver burnout, and trauma. In the center of my therapeutic approach is a strong therapeutic relationship with clients based on compassion and empathetic understanding/listening/seeking to know and a view that is based on seeing clients in a person-in-environment, and focus on helping the client explore and discern for the wisdom available to them deep in their heart and souls.

I have been formally working as a counselor since 2014 in particular with populations of clients and their families and caregivers who are struggling with life threatening illnesses, including at end of life. I also have experience in psychiatric counseling in both the inpatient and outpatient hospital settings. Common themes with clients have been anxiety, depression, family/intimate relationships, family of origin, existential questions/facing mortality, compassion fatigue, caregiver burnout, and trauma. In the center of my therapeutic approach is a strong therapeutic relationship with clients based on compassion and empathetic understanding/listening/seeking to know and a view that is based on seeing clients in a person-in-environment, and focus on helping the client explore and find the wisdom within themselves. I have had rich life experience as a classical musical artist before mid-life. I find that having lived a full life before becoming counselor, and in particular as a minority as well as being a woman, allows me to provide informed client care, and added capacity to empathize with the human condition. I also have five higher education degrees that include degrees in psychology (neuroscience research based/focused) and clinical social work with intensive focus on counseling those with life-limiting illnesses. I wish you beauty, healing and recovery, and ultimately a celebration of all that is in store for you in your unique personal journey.
