Announcement icon During these uncertain times, I am here to offer support via phone or video session. Available to all CA residents.
Are you looking for a highly trained, gender affirming, and LGBTQ+ allied psychologist for psychotherapy and/or psychological testing for your child, teen or for yourself? Are you are in a period of transition (e.g. with your gender identity, your relationship status, your career prospects) and despite being insightful and intelligent; you can't seem to "figure it out" on your own? If you are ready to stop the self-defeating cycle of negative thoughts, anxious and sad feelings, and poor coping behaviors; please reach out to me. It would be an honor to accompany you and your family on this journey of self-discovery and acceptance.
As a Vietnamese/Chinese-American, Spanish speaking, board certified psychologist who has lived, worked and traveled to more than 40 countries; I offer a unique, empathic and compassionate perspective that is strengths and resiliency based. I offer psychotherapy, psycho-diagnostic assessments (for school, work and asylum cases) and also consultation services.
My specialties include the intersections of gender (cisgender, transgender, gender non-binary, gender fluid), culture (racial, ethnic, familial, religious) and language (including the vocabulary we use to speak to ourselves). I am trained in evidenced based practices (e.g. CBT) and provide an individualized treatment plan that is unique to your strengths.
