About My Clients

Most of my clients are quite motivated and ready to dive into deeper work of improving relational struggles, healing their on-going anxiety, and learning to stand grounded and at peace. You may be quite successful on the outside, have survived marginalization experiences or even challenging family history, yet there may be an undertone of dissatisfaction in life. Or, you may find yourself not able to take or sustain healthier steps for yourself.

My Background and Approach

I integrate mind-body-spirit approaches with multicultural, feminist, and systemic frames. You can expect to recognize your patterns and triggers more clearly, learn different resilience tools to feel more grounded and reconnect with your inner power and centeredness, so that you are more at ease with yourself and with others, even with life's ups and downs.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

As a 1.5-generation immigrant, a previous 1st-gen college student with very limited financial resources, and familial mental health struggles, I have experienced being "othered," to have to first focus on survival and security. I have had to learn to have a voice, to learn to overcome guilt and take space so that I can focus on my own healing. As I gain more privileges, I regularly volunteered with the local Asian American community on social justice initiatives and provided workshops on mental health issues. I have also had to learn to set limits after burning out, and I'm now very careful how I spend my energy. I feel much privilege in sharing my learnings, to facilitate and empower your capacity to come into your true, powerfully unique, grounded you. I believe that we each have to walk towards ourselves, to hold and to cherish our own imperfect being first and foremost, to come into our light, so that we can be clear, healthy reflection while in and working for community.
