About My Clients

I help people who want more self-compassion, more insight into past patterns that are affecting current dynamics, and more authenticity in how they live day to day. I help the “helper” in the family who is burnt out and stuck. I am a therapist for people with a history of trauma that’s not just theirs; it is also trauma that has been passed down generationally and within a larger sociocultural context.

My Background and Approach

I believe people are multidimensional and complex with both strengths and vulnerabilities: together we will draw out your strengths and take care of your vulnerabilities. I practice from a psychoanalytic frame and personalize interventions to meet my clients needs (which may mean integrating CBT or DBT principles). I highly value the therapeutic relationship and the safety clients need to feel in order to grow.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

TLDR; Immigration, Gender, and Racial Identity. As a clinician that values social justice I am well aware of the systems of oppression that exist and impact us. I hope to provide a space in therapy to discuss social issues and empower you to advocate for yourself and your communities. I am drawn to working with individuals with marginalized and intersecting identities, especially when it comes to gender and racial injustices. I have a personal interest in providing a safe space to process the unique experiences of immigration (i.e., stereotypes, cultural dissonance, belongingness) as well as the experience of navigating our social and cultural climate as Asian Americans. I hope to learn from you and advocate for you.
