About My Clients

You might struggle with high-functioning anxiety, high-functioning depression, feeling broken, feeling emotionally numb, self-doubt, or maybe even past traumas. Perhaps you’ve been living with complex PTSD, and you don’t even know it. You want to move from internally surviving to thriving and you’re tired of being an insecure overachiever. There is so much more to everyone, you included, if you are willing to do the work and look within.

My Background and Approach

Oftentimes, the reason that led you to seek therapy is just the tip of the iceberg. My approach is to help you address the core issues underlying your struggles. I work primarily from a psychodynamic lens with some cognitive behavioral techniques depending on the individual. I am interactive and collaborative, which means that I won’t sit and stare at you quietly for the whole session. In fact, we will work together in this journey toward self-discovery, healing, and growth. Even though there are no quick fixes or easy answers when it comes to healing, people can experience growth and development as they work through past traumas. Successful professionals struggling with high-functioning anxiety and depression can finally move toward clarity and fulfillment in their inner world. I also invite you to bring all the nuanced and diverse parts of your identity to this process.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that our self-awareness is vital to overcoming emotional pain and living a meaningful life. Growing up in an immigrant Chinese family, I’ve always been fascinated by the mental and emotional world of people around me. The human psyche is so complex! Although mental health was not spoken about within the different communities I belonged to growing up, I had a gnawing sense that whenever someone was labeled ‘“lazy”, “selfish”, or “attention-seeking” by the media, people in my school, or communities I belong to, it was simply not enough. I wanted to understand others and how they came to be. When I became a therapist, this passion solidified; I witnessed the changes and possibilities clients experience as they grow to understand themselves on a deeper level. There is so much more to everyone, you included, if you are willing to do the work and look within.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
