About My Clients

My clients are mostly Asian American women and Latina professionals who are used to focusing on others or their career yet have lost touch with their own voice and needs. Many are high-achieving, yet underneath they may be feeling anxious, burned out, or struggling with self doubt and/or relational challenges. Many have a history of familial conflict, whether cultural, generational, and/or gender expectation differences.

My Background and Approach

In our sessions, we will dive into your history, cultural background and systems. You will learn to: Better recognize relational and attachment patterns within the cultural context and make sense of your emotional upheaval, understand and shift toward integrating more effective and adaptive relational, emotion-management, and communication skills, identify and leverage your own wisdom, feel more grounded and reconnect with your inner power and centeredness, so that you can be more present and connected with others. I have 20+ years of experience with clients from various backgrounds. As someone who lived through and have learned so much from my own burnouts and health challenges that led me to explore and advance my training in mind, body, and soul-centered practices, I know that these practices and techniques work for me and many others!

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Life could present with variety of marginalization and challenging experiences that could trigger emotional upheavals, shape how we see ourselves and our world, sometimes weighing us down and debilitating us. I don’t believe in simply relieving the symptoms of anxiety or trauma. Often these have deeper roots, and we will unpack those heavy “baggage” that you may inadvertently be carrying. We'll work to incorporate healthier, heart and soul-nourishing practices. It’s not that you won’t have difficulties in your life, but that you’ll learn and know that you’ll figure it out and be able to get through whatever challenges you face, to be less emotionally reactive, and you’ll still be able to have genuine smiles and appreciate the twists and turns of your life. I look forward to empowering your capacity to come into your true self within your cultural relations, to come into your power as you heal, balance, and learn to attune to your own mental and heart wisdom.
