Therapy can serve as a safe, nurturing, and nonjudgmental space to work through challenges in your everyday life. Being seen, heard, and accepted for who we are is something we need to thrive. As a 1.5 generation immigrant, I specialize in working with BIPOC folx, specifically international students, young working professionals, and Asian-Americans. As a psychotherapist and music therapist, my approach is warm, supportive, and caring. I practice from an attachment-based, psychodynamic, strength-based, and trauma-focused framework and will tailor my approach based on your needs and goals in therapy.
In music therapy, I use improvisation, lyric-analysis, composition, and sound healing to supplement the verbal processing of talk therapy. Taking the first step to reach out and share your story can be scary, but when it is met with understanding, nurturance, and care based on a trusting therapeutic relationship, it can be incredibly cathartic and healing.
Let's work to discover your creative healing power, embody parts of yourself that you may be struggling to accept, uncover other parts that you may be unfamiliar with, and together, we can cultivate compassion for every part of you to co-exist authentically to live a more fulfilling life.
心理咨询给我们提供一个安全、温暖、不被评判的港湾,帮助我们应对日常生活中的挑战。作为一名心理治疗师和音乐治疗师,我的心理治疗方式是以人为中心的、以人本心理学为基础的。作为一名华人咨询师,我深知跨文化生活中各方面的挑战。首先,我会与你探索作为一名少数族裔个体,这个身份如何影响你的生活和思维方式,以及它如何塑造你应对世界的方式。我们都渴望被看到、听到、被接纳。只有当我们被接纳后,我们才能能够完全拥抱自己、真实地做自我,逐步成为自己想要的样子。我相信,每个人都拥有能够让自己达到潜力的能力
在咨询关系中, 我会结合心理学中的依恋理论、精神分析、过程导向、认知行为和正念疗法帮助你一起探索你的人生困扰。在音乐治疗中,我会使用即兴演奏、歌词分析、音乐创作和声音疗愈等方法辅助谈话治疗。我会以来访者为中心,为你设计属于你的谈话与音乐疗愈方案。对我来说最重要的是与我的来访者深度共情,根据他们的具体治疗目标和需求调整我的方法。音乐疗法在我们言语匮乏时,它能够帮助我们继续发声。尤其在情感表达中,言语很多时候苍白无力,音乐却能让我们和我们充满想象力的内在小孩瞬间连结。在音乐治疗中, 我会使用即兴演奏、歌词分析、音乐创作和声音疗愈等方法辅助谈话治疗。我会以来访者为中心,为你设计属于你的谈话与音乐疗愈方案。
“言语表达不了的,音乐会给你引路。” ​当言语本身无法帮助我们谈论困难的经历和真实的感受时,音乐治疗能够帮我们发声。音乐可以让我们挖掘我们的内在小孩和创造力。让我和你一起找到内在小孩的神奇创造力和疗愈力,帮你你识别你难以接受的部分自我,帮助你发掘你不了解自己的方面,探索不同的应对方式,帮助你过上更充实的生活。 ​
