I provide guidance to children and adults with learning and emotional problems. Often individuals and families come to me after trying other interventions such as psychotherapy, tutoring, or medication. As a neuropsychologist, I provide comprehensive evaluations to clarify a client's learning profile, promote greater self-awareness, and generate tailored recommendations for home, school, and work. As a psychotherapist, I help clients to value themselves, focus on the present, and resolve conflicts that block them from being successful in their school, work, and personal life.

The ability to provide individual therapy to children, adolescents and adults; family therapy; and couples therapy, gives me the opportunity to work in collaboration with clients on a range of issues, needs, and goals. Ideally, clients are seeking therapy to work on something and are able to identify their hopes for therapy.

Suffering is often the result of less than nurturing relationships and experiences. Fear can become imprisoned in the body. Family and culture can dictate how safe it is, or not safe, to express and be yourself. My own immigrant experience from Taiwan allows me deeper empathy with people navigating challenging life transitions and relating to different cultures, and even new relationships. I strive to empower individuals within the context of systemic injustice and complications. My work is to provide compassion and wisdom so that you can feel fully alive and authentic in your body, in your world and in your relationships.

Clients often come to therapy with confusion, frustration, or shame about why they are experiencing the symptoms or problems that distress them. A very important part of psychotherapy is becoming more curious about thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that initially may seem to make no sense and have no useful purpose. When we come to appreciate that even distressing or self-destructive thoughts, feelings, or behaviors have important things to tell us, we can begin to experience empathy for ourselves, make sense of our distress, and turn toward making desired changes.
