My Background and Approach

I am an experienced LCSW and hold MSW in Advanced Clinical Practice from Columbia University School of Social Work. I am trained in short/long term psychotherapy, mindfulness, individual/couple, group/family work, diagnosis and treatment of mental illnesses, and crisis intervention. Specialized in bilingual/bicultural competent Treatment and familiar with working with adults, young adults, children/teens, and elderly people. My theoretical orientation is an integration of psychodynamic, interpersonal, cognitive-behavioral, multi-systemic, and solution-focused interventions. I also collaborate with evidenced-based treatment modalities including acceptance commitment therapy (ACT), mindfulness-based practice like MBSR, and trauma specific treatments. Trained and practice mindfulness myself, I combine it into my therapy practice. I help clients to see the value of focusing on the present moment, furthermore, the compassion of self is the valuable strength in the process of healing.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that psychotherapy is a collaborative effort and that change is possible. We work to discover various aspects of ourselves, looking into issues from new perspectives, increase self-awareness, and the potential to promote a better quality of life. I am professional, respectful and warm to every person I treat. We create treatment goals that settled in your needs and best results. As an Asian American psychotherapist, I naturally connect with immigration and acculturation issues that clients experience. And as a parent, I understand the challenge of modern parenting and can provide professional advice. Do you feel life is almost falling apart? Do you want to improve your mood and relationship? Are school and career choices overwhelming? I can empathize and may provide help. I invite you to reach out and see if we can be a good fit to meet further in therapy. Together, this can be the beginning of healing and rebuild, and soon, the possibility of change gradually arrives.
