Ph.D. Clinical Psychologist

I became a therapist because I want to help people heal and be happy. I have experienced the transformative power of dialectical behavioral therapy, EMDR, and attachment-based therapy, and I am passionate about helping others experience that same healing. I also believe that as an Asian-American, I have a unique perspective that can be helpful to those who are struggling with cultural issues. In my practice, I strive to create a safe and supportive space for my clients to explore their feelings and make positive changes in their lives. I believe everyone has the potential for growth and happiness, and it is my privilege to help my clients realize that potential.

Though the stigma surrounding mental health is slowly dissipating, many people still hesitate to seek therapy. It is especially true in the Asian-American community, wherein talking about emotions is often seen as a sign of weakness. However, therapy can be invaluable if you struggle with depression, anxiety, or trauma. In treatment, you have a chance to talk about your experiences with me, who you can trust, and who is unbiased. This can help you process and integrate these experiences into your sense of self. The goal of therapy is not to fix you but to help you keep growing and feeling content, at peace, and grateful in life.

I provide counseling and mental health services to everyone, especially ethnic minorities. I understand the unique challenges of living in two cultures and strive to provide a safe and supportive space for our clients. I offer individual therapy. I am committed to helping my clients heal from past trauma, build healthy relationships, and create a fulfilling life. I would be honored to work with you if you want help with depression, anxiety, or other issues.
