Sometimes we get so busy with the stress and fast-paced movement of daily life that when we finally come up for air, we realize we're living a life in accordance to others' wants and needs. We may have normalized parts of our lives we dislike, and now feel unsure or unworthy of who we are or what we want. Therapy is a process in which we work together to create space for you to slow down and unpack all of the beliefs, burdens, expectations, identities, fears, and hopes you hold; to assess what works and let go of what no longer serves you, to review who you've been and cultivate the person you want to be.

Do you want to get free? Do you feel stuck and afraid to change at the same time? Can you feel how your identities are oppressed by all the structures in society? It's possible to root out oppressive views that have dug their way into us. It's possible to move into acceptance of our bodies, our entire stories, and even to appreciate and celebrate our whole selves. Don't let others tell you how you should present yourself to the world, how you should shrink yourself for it. It's time to release the shame you're holding so you can experience some joy. Build new habits, like intuitive eating, movement for your mood, and more!

I do therapy backwards. I help people first find acceptance of what's challenging them, and focus on making that feeling of discomfort feel safe. I believe that allowing the experience of the full range of human emotions is key to reclaiming and strengthening our emotional resiliency. We can accept the presence of discomfort and feel joy, while identifying and making changes based on who we want to be or know we are. My therapy practice is based in an understanding of the nervous system, mindfulness, and the ways we all experience and react to trauma and distress.

Do you feel tangled or stuck, with your thoughts or in your body? You're working to break intergenerational patterns, and show up fully as yourself. You’re ready to feel seen, but you aren’t entirely sure how to get from here to there. Imagine what it would be like to feel more ease in your body. You would be grounded in who you are, and have the resources to face what comes--processing past traumas, navigating hurdles that are unfolding today, or building a life that’s moving towards your values. When you work with me, we’ll talk about systems of power and oppression and how they’re impacting what you’re feeling and experiencing.

I use mindfulness and compassion to work with women who struggle with anxiety, because I know just how terrible anxiety can feel, and I also know that it is so workable. There are plenty of effective tools for creating more freedom and flexibility in the face of your anxiety. I know how exhausting and frustrating it is when it feels like anxiety keeps creeping into your day. Even when everything is seemingly fine on the outside, that downward spiral of thoughts keeps you on the lookout for what could go wrong next, and worries about what others are thinking about you get in the way of full presence with so many precious moments. ​

As a queer, Chinese, eldest daughter of immigrants, I believe that it is important to hold space for all parts of you, no matter how much hate those parts have internalized, and no matter have much love those parts have been denied.
