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, 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.
