Student Therapist in Tustin, CA

About My Clients

Feeling unfulfilled, out of alignment, or frustrated? Wanting a change, but feeling stuck? It can be disorienting to recognize what’s no longer working but not have a clear path forward. Whether you’re processing past trauma, seeking your purpose in life, navigating the next steps in your career, or feeling challenged by romantic relationships or family dynamics, I’m here to explore with you.

My Background and Approach

Before becoming a therapist, I had a non-linear corporate career path. I bring these experiences of transition and alignment-seeking into my work as a therapist. I’m currently a counseling intern and a student working towards my Master’s degree in Counseling at Palo Alto University. I am under the supervision of Maryanne Duan, LMFT (license number 94176).

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

My goal is to hold space for you to compassionately meet all of yourself. To explore all of the parts of your internal landscape: the inner child, the harsh critic, the nurturer, the leader. To peel back past and present narratives and find what feels like a true, grounded, authentic sense of self. I believe that while trauma can be passed from one generation to another, healing and resilience can be too. You are doing important work in reaching out and I see your courage in wanting to dive deeper. I look forward to connecting with you.
