Profile
“Through our work together, we can explore different options, discuss coping strategies, find purpose, and discover our resilience and strengths.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I was born in China and immigrated to the United States, so I have firsthand experience navigating many of the challenges related to cultural differences and cultural identities. I remember the feeling of being isolated and disoriented in a new environment where there were many unfamiliar challenges. I consider myself lucky to have exposure to both cultures on a daily basis, which brings a multicultural perspective to my practice. Through our work together, we can explore different options, discuss coping strategies, find purpose, and discover our resilience and strengths.
What should someone know about working with you?
I use a client-centered approach and I believe that the client is the expert of their life. The focus of our work is to understand who you are, what you want as a person, and how we can get there. This is an exciting journey and just like travelling to an unfamiliar place, the journey can come with reluctance and anxiety. But remember, you’re the driver and you control the direction and speed. I’m in the seat next to you, making sure the journey is safe and reminding you to enjoy the scenery outside the window.
