About My Clients
We may be a good fit for each other if any of the following statements describe you • You’ve been struggling with your relationships with your family and/or friends • You have a hard time saying no to others, and want to learn how to set appropriate boundaries • You live between cultures and can’t seem to find the middle ground • You want to connect with yourself and come to a deeper understanding of who you are, and what you desire in life.
My Background and Approach
I earned a B.A. in psychology from Biola University, an M.S. in applied educational psychology from Northeastern University, and a doctorate in clinical psychology from Wheaton College. I completed my docotral internship at Stony Brook University, and post-doctoral fellowship at Baylor University. For the past several years, I worked at university counseling centers as a coordinator of multicultural services to meet the needs of students from diverse backgrounds.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I practice from a culturally-responsive and inclusive foundation, and I have extensive experience working with patients from various cultural, racial/ethnic, spiritual and religious backgrounds. In particular, I feel passionate about serving the Asians and immigrant population. As an Asian immigrant myself, I understand our unique cultural challenges, identity issues, intergenerational conflict, and how cultural trauma and stressors can play a role in our mental health.
