Announcement icon I provide Telehealth with clients who feel more comfortable with online therapy.
As a mental health clinician, my goal is to help my clients explore themselves to make the changes in their lives that will allow them to have a happier future by their own definition. I believe that we all need someone to talk with who will really listen and accept us as we are, without judgment. I provide my clients with a warm, nonjudgmental environment -a safe place to explore the issues that you want to discuss with me. I was trained as a plastic surgeon in China for 9 years. I also speak Mandarin and provide bilingual counseling services to my clients.
I have a Master's degree in Counseling Psychology and specialize in Marriage and Family therapy. I have completed Gottman Method level 1,2, and 3 training. I use a variety of approaches to help my clients, depending on individual needs. I am trained to use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Therapy and Psychoeducation Therapy.
My experiences include working with clients dealing with depression, anxiety, relationship issues, divorce, co-parenting, addictions, grief, mood disorders, among other challenges. I believe that I am uniquely qualified to assist clients facing their issues.
