My Approach to Helping

I am a licensed marriage and family therapist and enjoy working with individuals and couples on relationship and other issues such as anxiety, depression, stress, communication, conflict resolution, and self-esteem. Other than my therapy work, I have an extensive experience providing wraparound service for families with children who have severe emotional and behavioral needs. I have worked for Elder Protective Services with elders who are neglected and abused and their family. I have also provided psychiatric evaluation at emergency services and home-based family stablization work for families with children and adolescents who are in psychiatric crisis.

I recognize the complexity of human needs- physical, emotional, intellectual, relational, and spiritual and the unique effectiveness of different therapeutic approaches to different needs. I believe that a safe, supportive and respectful environment is important in the therapeutic process. My goal is to bring healing, transformation and growth throughout the course of therapy.

I am bilingual in Cantonese and English and enjoy working with people from different cultural and ethnic backgrounds.
