My clients describe me as:
a good listener, an active explorer, being gentle, asking challenging questions sometimes but providing a non-judgemental environment with support.
Something to know about my approach is:
Therapy can be challenging as we discuss issues, but it is my priority to ensure a safe environment for you to share. I integrate Psychodynamic Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT) into our therapy.
Together, we will:
explore cultures and thinking patterns that have been holding you back, break free from these patterns and develop new adaptive thinking skills. You will establish personal values and find new ways to meet your emotional needs.
I specialize in working with people who:
I am committed to supporting Asians who are ready to make changes. My clients usually found it uplifting from understanding how their upbringing impacts them now, finding own personal values, and breaking the cycle. We'll create long-lasting changes.
I became a therapist because:
mental health is under valued among Asians. I strive to increase accessibility of therapy and improve the quality of care for Asians.
More about me and my practice:
Seeing clients feel comfortable in sessions, setting and respecting boundaries, and trying new skills are enlightening. You'll take these skills outside of therapy and will make changes before you realize it. Contact me for a free 15-min consultation
