About My Clients

I am dedicated to working with young, middle-aged, and older adults, especially those who identify as East/South East Asian, South Asian/Desi, Native Hawaiian, Pacific Islander, BIPOC women (Black, Indigenous, Latine/Latinx, Asian American diaspora), and LGBTQIA+. I integrate a culturally responsive approach to find balance between understanding your inner self and addressing the impacts of oppressive systems. I believe in your capacity to begin breaking cycles of intergenerational trauma.

My Background and Approach

We will work together to find clarity so that you can live life according to your values. In our personal and professional relationships, many of us have been taught to minimize our feelings, to make ourselves smaller, to ignore our own needs, and to not be a burden. Sometimes we don’t have the language for discussing our pain or even our joy. We will work together to recognize the essential aspects of you. As a 1.5 generation, Asian American woman who grew up in several countries, I recognize the importance of acknowledging our full humanity and all of its intersections. Every person deserves to be recognized in their full human dignity. You deserve to be seen and acknowledged, just as you are. We will work together to make space for your authentic self.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe effective psychotherapy meaningfully integrates understanding of culture and oppressive systems to appreciate your whole personhood and mental health. I believe healing comes from recognizing how oppressive systems and learned behaviors may get in the way of you living intentionally. I will work with you to identify those patterns, learn how these patterns came to be, and discuss tools with you to heal in community and live a more intentional life with authenticity and clarity. I view navigating a mindful relationship with emotions and feelings as a way of becoming more mindful and grounded in our bodies. Grief, anger, sadness, fear – as uncomfortable as they are – they are also parts of ourselves that are worth understanding. I would be honored to be a part of your journey.
