My Approach to Helping
I am a Chinese-American bilingual California Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT 120844). I have experience working with diverse populations including children, transitional age youth (TAY), adults, and families. I believe that you have the ability to feel empowered for self-growth and meaningful connection with yourself and others.
My goal is to guide you to develop a deeper understanding on how core beliefs and emotions can be impactful to quality of life and relationships. I provide a supportive, non-judgmental empowering space for you to explore and process your unique struggles. My therapeutic style emphasizes genuine interactions, light hearted humor, compassion, and collaboration while being direct and action-focused.
I specialize primarily in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy with a solution-focused mindset to address unhealthy thought and behavioral patterns to better manage distressing symptoms. Depending on your specific needs, I utilize other approaches that are grounded in empirical evidence to help you build insight, self-reflection, and personal growth. Areas in which I provide services include but are not limited to Depression, Anxiety, Emotional Stress, Parenting Training and Challenges, FamilyRelational Dynamics, Life Transitions, and Trauma.
