Profile
“I am committed to providing culturally-sensitive treatment and value having an authentic therapeutic relationship.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
My first job out of college was working as a 1:1 aide at a special education school. I worked with children on the autism spectrum and soon found I was much more drawn to understanding the whole picture. I wondered, “What were my students’ parents like? What did they enjoy doing when we weren’t practicing social skills?” This curiosity has followed me into my practice and has enabled me to help clients take a curious stance to discover the interconnectedness of thoughts, emotions, and behaviors.
What should someone know about working with you?
I am committed to providing culturally-sensitive treatment and value having an authentic therapeutic relationship. I offer an integrated approach in order to meet the needs of my clients but I primarily utilize CBT and mindfulness-based approaches. When the need arises, I will also incorporate creative arts into sessions. I like to end each session with homework, whether it is “food for thought” for the upcoming week or a skill to practice. I will help you develop positive coping strategies and identify your strengths.

What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
I am encouraged to see a rise in Asian mental health professionals and therapists of color. I think this speaks to a shift in how mental health is viewed in these communities. My hope is that seeking therapy will no longer be viewed as a weakness or taboo but, instead, become readily accepted as another piece to the puzzle of overall health and wellness.
