I love seeing my clients change and achieve their happiness through therapy. I believe clients deserve a place to be heard and cared about I am an active advocate for feminism and would like to advocate for women in their future academic and career life. I work with adolescents and adults who experience a variety of concerns, ranging from career challenges to trauma-related issues, to mood disorders, and life transitions.
As an Asian international student, I bring a unique perspective to the table, as I have experienced struggles in cultural adaptation and other challenges with living in a different country. Because of my experiences, I am passionate about working with others as they navigate adapting to a new country, experiencing systemic oppression, and other challenges that accompany immigrating with the ultimate goal to help you improve your overall wellness.
Outside of my clinical work and school work, I love to watch cat and dog videos and hope to have some of my own in the future!
