I am a queer, settler, cis woman of colour whose ethnic heritage is from Hong Kong.
I specialize in supporting racialized queer, non-binary, and trans folks. My work background combined with lived experience equips me to work from a strengths-based, trauma-informed, anti-oppression framework that integrates culturally-aware care into my work with clients. My work is always informed by the client’s social and cultural location, and all sessions are facilitated with the client’s strengths, needs, and goals in mind.

Hello. As an Asian immigrant woman , I go through a unique intersection of opportunities and challenges in life. I see strengths, fears, imperfections and lightness in all life transitions and circumstances. My therapy approach is trauma-informed, non-judgemental and exploratory. You don't have to have had professional help before, or know how to put words to the "stuck" you are facing. We can figure that out together. While you will have your therapy goals with me, mine is to hear you deeply, to provide a perspective you might have known but needed to hear.

I specialize in working with women who are navigating challenges in relationships, attachment and self-esteem, who want to feel happy inside and in relationships, and work with a BIPOC therapist who understands their culture in a deeper way.
If you want to overcome relationship difficulties, while feeling heard and understood in a safe place I am here for you. Struggles with relationships can overwhelm us and make us feel stuck. It hurts deeply when we feel alone and unimportant in relationships. Overtime we may feel confused and question our self-worth. Perhaps you want to build a healthier relationship with your partner, heal from unhealthy family/ romantic relationships or want to learn how to put yourself first with healthy boundaries. As a relationship therapist, I have shared my expertise in major media outlets including Cosmopolitan, Bustle, and EQ magazine.

As a Christian woman , it’s hard navigating your experiences of anxiety, depression, and loneliness. Your pain and suffering makes you question “If God is good, then why hasn’t he healed me? Is there something wrong with me? Do I not have enough faith?” Maybe past painful experiences of abuse or neglect haunt you and you can’t seem to forgive and move on. Depression and anxiety feel out of your control leaving you scared and hopeless. You pray and pray and pray and it doesn’t stop. Maybe you’ve tried therapy before and it didn’t help as you hoped. You desire and need the peace promised in the bible but it feels so far away.

You have probably begun looking into therapy to help manage symptoms of anxiety. I help women who are struggling with the same obstacles you are facing. I know you have goals that you are trying to reach, but you likely need some support to learn how to process the past, remain present, and cope effectively. Most of my clients are also struggling in their relationships. We will explore attachment styles and any other habits that might be negatively contributing to the already excruciating process of dating in 2022.

My approach focuses on empowering women , clients in general, in their quest to know and free themselves on a deeper level, to live more meaningful and purposeful lives, to overcome every crisis, traumatic experiences and recreating self-image and building self-confidence while finding joy, grace and pure love for life as an inherent part of our true nature.
Unfolding, experiencing and living our authentic selves is what I am passionate about. I am highly skilled in guiding clients in accessing and exploring obstacles that are results of our deeply rooted beliefs. Unquestioned beliefs or limiting thoughts that can manifest as anxiety, depression or other psycho-emotional difficulties can actually be guiding lights on our journey to our true Selves. The essence of our being remains untouched as we grow and is waiting to be found and reconnected with. When you connect on a deeper level with your Self, your purpose, gifts, and talents show in their fullness and potentials show up.

Life can be challenging, and you deserve support. Yet, we as women feel guilty for prioritizing ourselves all too often. We are used to putting others’ needs and comfort before our own. Perhaps you notice being very critical of yourself. Maybe you’re struggling with your relationships, life changes or overwhelming emotions like anxiety, anger or shame. You might be asking yourself: “Who am I? Is this the life I want?” I want you to know that you don’t have to deal with it alone.

I help women who are: 1) charting their path to create the life they really want, 2) recalibrating their path to reconnect with their intrinsic values.
For anyone out there who feels like they are failing at “having it all,” I’m here to break it to you. You haven’t failed. Attaining perfection in our lives is a myth, and it’s holding so many of us back from the happiness we deserve. Especially in this modern day and age, we are flooded with highlight reels of what our lives should be. While most of us would admit that no one’s life can be picture perfect 24/7, many of us still stretch ourselves too thin to “do it all” to gain acceptance from society. The truth is this... It is almost impossible to have a picture perfect life without serious consequences to your wellbeing!

But now, I am in the perfect position to help women in their mid-twenties to forties break out of this harmful cycle.
It can feel like our minds are constantly “turned on”. We might find ourselves worrying and becoming self-critical about mistakes we’ve made. As well, our minds might be churning out all kinds of possible scenarios, trying to figure things out. This can lead to feelings of anxiousness or self-doubt. I’m here to help people experiencing this. I want to help them be okay with who they are! When we learn to accept ourselves, it brings ease to life and allows us to move forward and get what we want out of life.
