As a humanistic psychotherapist, I am person-centered and focus on the uniqueness of each individual. I believe that a positive, empathetic relationship between therapist and client is essential to effective therapeutic change. I respect my clients as equals who are ultimately responsible for their own growth and direction. People find me interactive, easy to relate to, and sensitive to their needs. Along with talk and insight work, I incorporate a wide variety of techniques into the therapeutic process, including cognitive-behavioral techniques, guided imagery, mindfullness practices, communication exercises, relaxation exercises and other awareness techniques.

My practice is influenced by an eclectic approach and I use a variety of therapeutic approaches including humanistic, psychodynamic, CBT, and existential psychology.
I am a LCSW-C therapist who works with adolescents, adults, and couples. Life has a way of presenting people with challenges that may cause you to want to seek counseling to help you navigate your way through life's ups and downs. Sometimes these challenges make us feel stuck and uncertain, whether it be relationship issues, divorce, intimacy, death of a loved one, loss of a job, grief, suicide survivor, identity crisis, family conflict, addiction, domestic violence, abuse, sexual orientation, or simply feeling like you are at a cross roads and not sure what to do next.

Hello. If you are considering psychotherapy, a good "fit" with your psychologist is essential. I have been a practicing clinical psychologist for over forty years. During that time, I have also been a psychology professor at Montgomery College. My theoretical orientation is a pragmatic blend of cognitive, humanistic, psychodynamic and behavioral, but I am also a firm believer in the value of positive psychology. I try not to diagnose people, but rather work with the entire individual, especially with their strengths. I am not the "silent, blank-screen" kind of therapist.

I believe that your personal and ancestral pasts inform your present, but you also have the power to functionally rewrite and close the chapters that are rooted in powerlessness, guilt, fear, and shame, while freeing up the space and energy to curate the meaningful and meaning-filled future you deserve. 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. An integrative, systemic, and humanistic framework guides my approach to healing.

One of the most critical components of effective therapy is developing a connection with your therapist. My top priority is making people feel comfortable in sessions and working towards achieving the different goals they have for therapy. My clients are able to share their thoughts and experiences through a non-judgmental and safe environment that I strive to cultivate. I often hear people in therapy say “I don’t know what to do. My anxiety is controlling my life.” Others have said, “My depression is so debilitating” or “I just need someone to talk to because I feel my relationships are spiraling out of control.

My clients would likely say I am open-minded, down to earth, and empathetic. 20 years of experience have taught me that respectful understanding is key in working with clients as they seek to understand their circumstances, proactively engage in their lives, and feel better. My main area of work has been supporting adolescents and adults with emotional difficulties, traumatic events, decision making and coping skills for expected life transitions - school, career, "adulting”. I work in tandem with clients as they identify their challenges, needs, and goals. My approach while kind and interactive, encourages self-reliance.
