Dealing with life’s challenges sometimes feels like being trapped in quicksand—the harder you fight to get out of it, the deeper you sink. Exhausting, right? When stress, hopelessness, painful incidents, or risky habits prevail, enjoying the present becomes quite difficult. Your past wounds and current hardship may take over, clouding the road to your future. You crave clarity, meaning, and validation. You want to get out of this rut to find fulfillment and happiness but are unsure how. The good news is: you can figure it out, understand yourself better, and reach your dream goals— and I’m here to guide you on that path.
Whether you are struggling with depression, anxiety, trauma, traumatic brain injury, or porn and sex addiction, I’m honored to support you. I specialize in helping adults get to know themselves and feel empowered to advocate for their well-being. As we work together, you will reflect, expand your awareness, and gain tools to manage adversity and grow.
I was born in Hong Kong and served as a medic in the US Army, which motivated me to assist Veterans and diverse cultures. My style is casual and caring, focused on addressing your unique needs. I use cognitive behavioral and dialectical behavior therapy, included but not limited to Dr. Carnes's sex addiction tasks to help clients with porn and sex addiction.
