I have experience providing psychotherapy in a wide range of settings, including clinics, schools, and shelters. I started my career working with the Asian American community, providing trauma-informed and culturally appropriate services for Cantonese and English speaking clients to help them connect their mental health struggles with their childhood experiences, family dynamics, and societal expectations. From there, I've also worked with adolescent and young adult populations to navigate relationships with family, other people, and themselves.
In my practice, I use a combination of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy to teach mindfulness techniques and coping skills, improve your relationships, understand unhelpful thinking patterns, and manage reactions. I also draw from my training in Trauma-Focused CBT, an evidence-based model to help adolescents process trauma alongside making behavioral changes and reducing symptoms of anxiety, depression, and PTSD.
