About My Clients

I view therapy as a collaborative effort for personal exploration and self-growth. I create a non-judgmental, warm space to help clients unpack the stressors of life. My aim is to help clients untangle their thoughts, build insights, and develop positive coping skills. I believe that the work of therapy mirrors a person’s life journey. So, I provide individualized therapy that is specifically tailored to each client.

My Background and Approach

I am an Asian-American pre-licensed mental health counselor. I completed my master’s degree in Counseling for Mental Health and Wellness at New York University. I utilize an integrative approach through a person-centered, strength-focused, and multicultural lens to meet the clients where they are. I also incorporate psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral-based and acceptance-based techniques to assist clients in developing helpful tools and skills to improve self-wellbeing. I have great understanding and experiences working with clients with Asian/Asian-American background.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

A value I believe that contributes to effective therapy is the therapeutic relationship between the client and the therapist. The trust and respect built together lays the foundation for client change and growth. I strive to help clients explore the influences from their past, connect patterns to the current present, and develop goals for a healthy future. I know it can be difficult shopping for a therapist that’s the right fit for you. To help bring that relief, I provide a free phone consultation.
