About My Clients

I have the most experience working with adults and older adults. I am also interested in working with adolescents. I am interested in issues of health/medical anxiety, chronic pain, living with chronic health conditions, cultural adjustment, acculturation, and issues of racial/ethnic identity. I also offer support for egg freezing and being a solo parent by choice. I specialize in Asian and Asian American individuals or those in marginalized communities. I also conduct therapy in Mandarin.

My Background and Approach

I was recently Senior Counseling Psychologist at University of California, Irvine Counseling Center and an Assistant Professor in the Clinical Psychology Ph.D. program at Alliant International University (Alhambra, California). I received my Ph.D. in clinical psychology from the University of South Dakota and trained at VA Puget Sound – American Lake, working with individuals with chronic pain, older adults, and integrated primary care. I then completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the San Diego VA where I specialized in integrated primary care and tobacco cessation. I would like to help you make health behavior changes and address issues that affect both your physical and psychological health. I am also interested in including cultural healing and mindfulness practices with therapy. I use a directed approach to work alongside you to help you reach your therapeutic goals.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am passionate about social justice and believe in advocating on behalf of those who are marginalized, underrepresented, or voiceless. When I can, I use my privilege to lend my voice to those who do not have a seat at the table. I am committed to working with individuals from marginalized, underserved, and/or underprivileged groups. I particularly see a great need for services within the Asian and Asian American community, and I value the opportunity to work with members of this community. Traveling feeds my soul; I have visited more than 20 countries. I enjoy learning about other cultures and lifestyles through my travels. Hiking and being out in nature also help to ground me and bring me peace.
