My Approach to Helping
Are you looking for a counselor who understands the intersection of culture and mental health?
Do you identify as someone with multiple minority identities like being Asian and LGBTQI? Are you feeling alone, lost and tired? Loneliness and rejection can lead to depression, anxiety, anger, and relationship problems. If you are tired of the emotional pain in your life and want to feel better about who you are, I want you to know that there is hope for you. You can boldly discover your inner self and find healing through discovery of your personal strengths and embracing what makes you unique.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist
I love being a psychotherapist because I am passionate about helping clients achieve their highest good. Being your therapist means that I hold a sacred honor to help you on your life's journey. My passion is to help you find what makes you tick and what gives your life meaning. I want to experience with you life's valleys and cheer you on as you overcome life's difficult mountains. Being a therapist, means I get to be that one person you trust to tell you honestly what I see is off track in your life and how together we can get it back on track. I love being a therapist because I get to be that one person in your life who helps you discover the true you and the person who encourages you to challenge what does not resonate with you and to adopt a life purpose unique to you. No other profession asks their members to provide this type of service and that is why I love being a therapist.
Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed
Therapy is one of the most courageous investments you will make in your life. It requires strength and vulnerability and bravery to share with your therapist your innermost self. It requires the client to embrace the idea that things are not always in their control and that they need help from a therapist to see where things have gone wrong and how to overcome challenges. Therapy is one of the bravest endeavors that a client will engage in that also contains some of life's greatest rewards.
