My Approach to Helping
My specialties are attachment-focused eye movement desensitization and reprocessin (EMDR) interwoven with trauma-based tools, neuro affective relational model (NARM), and somatic experiencing. I am committed to a Gestalt therapy lens and offer dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) behavioral health techniques. I believe if one is struggling with shock or developmental trauma from the past, dedicated techniques would allow for more effective and faster relief than talk therapy alone. Oftentimes, unaddressed past trauma exacerbates everyday stress and complicates mental health challenges.
I am experienced in collaborating with my clients on issues of generalized anxiety, depression, and relationship challenges. My hope is to empower people with effective stools to offer stress relief and a sense of agency in life.
As an Asian mixed-race person of color who is fluent in conversational Cantonese Chinese, I am happy to
nurture a safe space and global perspective for people of diverse experiences.
