The death of someone close, the end of a relationship, or the recognition of childhood wounds and loss of innocence is painful and leads us to feel disconnected. We don't heal in isolation. Therapy promotes healing through the process of being with. Holding space for others and deepening our understanding of the human experience is something I hold with the deepest respect and care. By exploring the past, engaging in meaning-making, and fostering awareness of our patterns and thoughts, my goal is to help you restore connection to self and others and develop tools help you experience a more full life.
As an Asian-American therapist, I specialize in difficulties related to intergenerational and family of origins dynamics to promote healing from the past to help you engage in more meaningful relationships in the present. I incorporate mindfulness and somatic approaches and am training towards certification as a grief counseling specialist.
My therapeutic style emphasizes genuineness, warmth, and compassion. I am an LGBTQIA+ affirming therapist, and take an anti-racist/anti-oppressive lens in my work and my personal life. I deeply value inclusivity and diversity and continue to educate myself. Email or call me to schedule a complimentary 15-minute consultation to see if we're a good fit!
