I utilize a variety of theories and techniques from psychodynamic therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, existential therapy, and emotion-focused therapy.
I am a bilingual clinician with over 8 years of experience working with children, adolescents, and adults with a variety of concerns. I have provided bilingual services in English and Mandarin in a variety of settings, including domestic violence shelters, community mental health counseling centers, university counseling centers, and group practice. I work with a number of concerns, but I feel especially rewarded in working with those struggling with the aftermath trauma, interpersonal concerns, coping with life and cultural transitions, depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, and racial and cultural identity development issues.

My style is non-blaming, eclectic and active incorporating cognitive, developmental, systemic and psychodynamic modalities.
Even after nearly 40 years as a therapist, each time I begin to work with people I feel as though I am walking on holy ground. Each person who comes to me willing to be vulnerable and open to the change necessary to bring about greater relational happiness and deeper personal awareness is treated with profound respect. Therapy takes courage to face that part of ourselves that may be limiting or sabotaging our relational and personal growth.

Im trained in Psychodynamic/Self psychology, EMDR, Individual/Adlerian psychology, and CBT.
With over 15 years experience as a licensed psychologist, I think of the therapeutic relationship as a method for understanding the self. To that end, behavior patterns can be explored, internal experience can shift with the movement towards change. Perhaps you are caught in the same cycle and feeling frustrated. You may be adjusting to a life or career transition. Stuff from the past is triggering and you might not understand why you feel the way you do. We can explore and understand the meanings in a safe and creative way.

Emotional pain is difficult and often lonely. False beliefs can be the root of this pain. Shining light on the truth that opens us up to our unique true self and joy can be challenging. For over 24 years I've had the privilege of working with incredible people of varied ethnicities, spiritual beliefs and gender/sexual preferences. My deepest desire is to offer a space without judgement that is collaborative, challenging, compassionate and empowering. I invite each person to uncover and celebrate the purpose and passion of their truest Self. Namaste

Through both the psychodynamic and logotherapy lenses, I aim to be a listening and empathetic ear to all who are hurting.
It is my life’s joy to hear each individual’s story of resiliency and redemption. I find it an honor and a privilege to be a small part of their journey. I specifically enjoy working with young adults struggling with meaning and purpose, as well as married couples and older adults seeking counseling. Prior to studying psychology, I also studied theology, music, and received a master’s in counseling from Dallas Theological Seminary.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Wheaton, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.
