I am a temporarily able-bodied, Taiwanese American, cisgender, heterosexual woman. I am also a feminist, an aspiring anti-racist, and an LGBT-ally. I’m politically active, outspoken, and identifiable in the public eye for many reasons. Since 2020, I have been featured, cited, and interviewed in the media on the topic of anti-Asian racism, anti-immigrant sentiments, and the need for cross-racial coalition building. I am also a professor of counseling psychology. I teach, mentor, and advise graduate students. I conduct research to advocate for BIPOC communities and needs.
I believe that therapy is a sacred space and a sacred relationship dedicated to your needs, your growth, and your journey. There is no other place like it, and no relationship that will allow you to focus on yourself without being judged or swayed to do anything else. It is the only space to be able to go there-- to talk about hard stuff-- without needing to take care of anyone else. You can finally be taken care of.
