Psychiatrist, MD
Anxiety, depression, haven’t been feeling yourself? What can I do to help - is what I ask myself every time I’m facing someone who is struggling to get to where they want to be in life. Having lived in four very different places (mainland China, French Canada, Las Vegas, New York City) before age 20, I come from a diverse cultural background that accepts and appreciates all. Compassionate, always ready to listen, without a trace of judgement, I am here to understand what is uniquely you. There is no dilemma too small to ponder, and no problem too big to tackle. Witnessing positive change gives me the utmost joy in life.
