About My Clients

Are you longing to feel emotionally safe and secure despite being buried under life stressors and mental obstacles? This is a part of being human, but that does not mean you have to go through it alone. If you are ready to commit to the journey of self-love to see and live your full potential and be the best version of yourself, I look forward to guiding you through therapy. Investing in your mental health is worth it and you deserve to prioritize yourself, your health, and your happiness.

My Background and Approach

Being a therapist and holding space for people to express themselves and work through life challenges is my passion. As everyone can benefit from therapeutic support, I am happy to work with those who see me as a good fit for their journey. However, my speciality, and a part of my work that I truly love, is working with younger populations, including children/adolescents and their families, transitional aged-youth, and young adults. As a trilingual therapist (English, Thai, and Spanish), I am able to conduct therapy sessions to help bridge the accessibility gap in mental health care. Together, we can work as a team to provide support and encouragement.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Mental health is an integral part of well-being and happiness. Maintaining mental health extends past just living without a mental illness. Stressors and events can impact how we think and feel. I believe that the stresses of life impact everyone on some level and the effects can look different from person to person. I believe that those who prioritize self-care and self-love can change their lives and impact those around them in the world. Although life can be difficult, I have seen firsthand how people can be even more resilient especially when having the right support and tools to get through stressors and experiences. To me, everyone has the dignity and worth as a person, but some people just do not see that in themselves. When people realize their potential and worth, it inspires me, which is why I find my work as a therapist so rewarding. If you want to learn more about how I can help, contact
