Profile
“I provide a safe space for people to talk about their inner thoughts.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I grew up in China where mental health was not greatly valued. I went to New York University for graduate school to study social work and completed psychoanalytic training after graduation. I believe people can thrive and overcome pain and suffering. Our childhood and family experience shape who we are, but we can choose to be the master of our own life!
What should someone know about working with you?
I provide a safe space for people to talk about their inner thoughts. Therapy is like a journey that we go on together; I will stay in the moment with clients and help them remove the barriers within themselves.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I have taken psychoanalytic training since 2015. I enjoy learning more about myself and improving my skills as a therapist through this training. I have participated in individual supervision, group supervision, personal analysis, and at least four classes every year. I believe being a therapist is a lifelong learning experience.
How do your own core values shape your approach to therapy?
Life can be difficult sometimes and if you reach out to people, you will have more support and courage to deal with these difficulties. As an immigrant, I understand cultural conflict, as I have developed a new identity in the US. This enriches me and increases my understanding of those who grew up between two or more cultures.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
I'm excited about telehealth. It allows people to access mental health services easily. It also helps me connect to clients who are from different states or countries.
How do you work with children and adolescents?
I provide play therapy when working with children who have behavioral problems. I integrate art therapy when working with adolescents. Play and art help young people express themselves freely and allow for self-healing.
