I listen,interact, and provide you with the proper "tools" and education to help you help yourself to a more efficient, happier lifestyle.

Being a therapist is a huge responsibility that I do not take lightly. I know that being vulnerable in therapy can be a challenge. The change process can also be difficult. Having said that, I do this work because I have seen change and healing happen throughout my career. Before this process can begin, it is useful to know the underlying contributing factors to the problem (s); as those factors should influence therapy. It can be difficult to change something that you do not understand.

I enjoy working with individuals from various cultural backgrounds, with a focus on Asian /South Asian clients and first-generation/children of immigrants.
I offer a warmly collaborative, open, and at times, gently challenging approach to help you enhance your quality of life. My clients are busy, driven adults who feel "stuck" in their relationships and careers, and disconnected from themselves and others who matter most. Many report experiencing anxiety in various forms, imposter syndrome, excessive worry, and burnout. Since 2013, I have compassionately guided clients toward a higher sense of fulfillment, well-being, and overall functioning. Using integrative clinical approaches tailored to your specific needs, I will partner with you to create positive change.

I have a specific interest in working with survivors of childhood abuse and sexual assault, individuals who are struggling with racial identity and racial trauma, and members of the Asian American community.
I believe that the quality of the relationship with your therapist is fundamental to healing deep emotional pain and can help you grow into your most authentic self. Through genuine and trusting collaboration, I will create a warm, accepting, and empathetic space where you can feel both vulnerable and safe. We will honor your strengths, identify your goals, and examine the thoughts and behaviors that no longer serve you. I acknowledge the importance of your many intersecting identities and unique lived experience, and I utilize an integrative, curious, and compassionate approach tailored to your needs.

I struggled against high standards, while also having the experience of being different from my Midwestern community as a gay Asian American.
Regardless of the successes, you still have moments when you feel like a failure. If you’re someone who holds yourself to high standards, you might feel frustrated by how you get in your own way from succeeding. If you struggle with the combination of perfectionism and procrastination, counseling can help. I provide direct, interactive feedback with an anti-systemic racism perspective designed to help you stay accountable to your goals.

In addition to tackling depression and anxiety, I have worked extensively with models, athletes, multicultural relationships, Asian -American issues, families, and couples while maintaining an LGBTQIA+ affirmative practice.
I appreciate your willingness to take the time to put yourself first and look for a new therapist. I believe therapy is not just for the challenging moments, it's also designed when things in life are perfectly fine. We could all use additional tools when life is going great to prepare us for when things get rough. My goal is to promote and encourage the importance of physical and mental health while collaboratively adding value to your daily life. I want to provide you with a safe, secure environment to explore hard topics while incorporating different skills and tools that you can utilize regularly. The space and time is yours!

As a South Asian American and child of immigrants, I have seen in my community and clinical work how cultural identities (gender, ethnicity, sexual identity, religion, and others) interact with our mental health.
I value creating a collaborative relationship that fosters trust and safety by infusing warmth, curiosity, humor, and authenticity into how I relate to others. As I learn more about your experiences, we will work together to explore your concerns and identify techniques to better manage them. I listen for patterns to help you draw connections between current and past life events and how they are impacting you in the present. I hope to create a space for you to bravely reflect on changes you want to make in your life that will lead to a more fulfilling present and future.

As a first generation Asian American woman, I believe in the importance of cultural humility, anti-racism, and gender affirmation in my practice, paying attention to power structures and systems that affect us all. I view clients as equals, where social hierarchies and identities are addressed to practice true cultural humility and understanding. Using the power of art as a tool of justice and healing to create opportunities for inclusion and human connection, each individual’s human potential will be supported, regardless of identity or ability.

What type of Rockford mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Rockford?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
