"While we all share the universal human condition, how we understand, express, and manage our emotions varies vastly based on our unique history and cultural blueprint. As a licensed clinical psychologist, I help adults and couples address a wide range of concerns including relationships, depression and anxiety, life transitions and acculturation. I also have a specialty in reproductive mental health, assisting individuals considering fertility treatment or building families through the assistance of egg/sperm donation and/or gestational surrogacy. I am fluent in Chinese and French for those who need monolingual or bilingual sessions."

"Are you struggling with sexuality-related issues? Access to sexual health is a right. This includes expression of sexuality that is safe, free of judgment and shame, and centers pleasure. As queer folx, or queer folx of color, we've been told that our sexuality is wrong in so many ways. While the experience of marginalization is traumatic, we also have so much beautiful resiliency and abundant inner resourcefulness to counter that. I believe that we all deserve the right to heal, and that we all have the tools within ourselves to do so. My job is to partner with you & support gaining access to that intuitive healer within."

The therapeutic relationship we share will be an important factor in understanding, improving, establishing, and responding to those relationships.
