My Approach to Helping

Are you feeling disconnected to yourself after a traumatic experience in ways you find difficult to explain? Sometimes bad things happen to good people. According to statistics, 70% of adults experience at least one traumatic event in their lifetime. You are not alone and what happened to you was not your fault. My name is Thao (pronounced Tao) or you can call me Judy, and I am here to help. I am a Licensed MFT who is also bilingual in Vietnamese and familiar with the Asian American culture. I believe that fate has led you to this page, and I commend you for taking the first step to explore your options in seeking more support.
Trying something new is not easy but you can be scared, nervous, brave and courageous all at the same time. In my work with clients, I have learned that vulnerability is the root of authentic connections. My hope is to foster a safe space for you to embrace vulnerability, share & rewrite your story, reclaim control of your life and begin your healing journey.
Though therapy is not a one size fit, I am really hoping that you will give me the opportunity to get to know you and to see if I could be that person for you. It would be an honor to walk this journey with you and help you begin writing your next chapter. Hope to connect soon when you are ready to take a leap of faith in nurturing change. You got this!
