As a somatic psychotherapist, I use a combination of body-based and traditional talk therapies to help clients live more fully. My passion is working with clients who are struggling with the effects of trauma including anxiety, addictions, eating disorders, and relationship difficulties. Somatic Experiencing (SE) is my foundational lens while utilizing other evidenced based treatments including Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT), Experiential, and Adjunct to 12-Step. I view therapy as a collaborative process and see myself as a guide in helping my clients find their unique ability to address their struggles.

Greetings, my initial objective is to provide my client with some relief. My primary objective is to empower my client. Both processes begin with meeting the client where they are on their current life journey while building rapport with client-centered therapeutic techniques. I appreciate and respect that every client is different. As a result, we work as a team to collaborate on their dreams, goals, desires, and objectives as well as on the way, equipping them with the tools for autonomy and self-reliance.

**I am not currently accepting new clients** I believe as human beings we are wired to heal. As a therapist, my goal is to aid my clients' self-healing process. The decision to begin Psychotherapy can be anxiety producing in and of itself. I aim to create a supportive therapeutic environment in which I actively address my clients' needs. As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, I have had the opportunity to work with people who present with a broad range of concerns they would like to address.

I enjoy working with clients of all ages through a variety of areas including dissociative disorders (DID/systems), complex trauma, developmental/relational trauma, body-image and self development. I see clients as creative, resourceful, and resilient in the ways in which they have survived difficult life experiences. Although once highly effective, clients may find that these survival tools alone may no longer be conducive to their healing. Through therapy, clients can learn to expand upon their internal and external resources, enhancing their quality of life.

At the core of everything I do in therapy is the belief that true healing happens through empowerment and love, not fear. Therapy encompasses a bit of art, science, intuition, and loving kindness. What works in therapy is a real person connecting to a real person and I believe the best therapists are those who show you where to look, but don't tell you what to see. My approach is based on a model of healing and empowerment to help you reconnect with that whole, thoughtful, creative, fearless human being you are and to trust your inner wisdom.

My goal as your therapist is to create a relationship that you can use for your own growth. While I only practice evidence-based treatments informed by the latest research, I don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach. Therapy is an art as much as a science, one that is meant to honor your unique story and your specific goals. Together we will explore your inner world and identify the beliefs and patterns that are keeping you from experiencing your life in the healthiest, most fulfilling, and most meaningful ways.

Honest self-reflection is the answer to so many of our problems. At many points throughout our lives, we learn to ease life’s burdens by shutting down, acting out, or running away in attempts to find relief. Even our most destructive coping strategies were often the best answers we could find at the time to manage our anxieties, our desires, and our pain. When we allow ourselves the opportunity to slow down and reflect on our lives, both past and present, we deepen our understanding and insight. And, as we explore our lives without moralizing and harshness, we develop genuine compassion and greater trust in ourselves.

Do you ever feel like maybe you should talk to someone but don’t feel like things are “bad enough” yet? Do you feel like “other people have it worse” and “I should be thankful” instead of asking for help? Maybe you don’t feel like adding one more thing to your already hectic schedule. You also probably just don’t feel like fighting traffic in what little free time you do have. Did you know your life doesn’t have to be completely falling apart in order to seek therapy services? What if I told you that you could cut the travel and maximize your precious free time by attending teletherapy services from the comfort of your own space?

Part of the reason I was drawn to this profession is because therapy has been an invaluable tool in my own life. I’m always striving to create a space for growth and healing that is as impactful for others as it has been for me. Being a human is hard work and none of us get it out of it unscathed. I believe that we could all benefit from having an opportunity and a space to put words to our fears, doubts, emotions, and beliefs and to help us gain clarity on what is serving us and what is holding us back.

It is my honor to work with clients on paths of exploration, personal growth, and healing. Because of the pain that often brings us to therapy, I believe that safety, unconditional positive regard, and authenticity are of the utmost importance in the therapeutic relationship. My theoretical orientation in counseling is primarily psychodynamic and interpersonal within a humanistic framework. I believe that past experiences inform current understanding, and exploring such issues can be healing. Change can also be related to a new understanding of relational patterns and a new experience of relationship with the therapist and others.

I am a daughter of Lao refugees, born and raised in Tennessee. Growing up a minority in the South has molded in me a passion for working with Bodies of Culture. I love working with individuals in life transitions, identity reconstruction, anxiety, and depression. I have learned that every human has a unique story; having a longing to be understood, accepted, seen. In my own identity development as an Asian American woman, I continue to learn the importance of understanding all the parts that make up my own story. It’s my desire that I create a safe space for you to bring and be all of who you are on your unique journey of healing.

My ideal client needs a therapist who possesses qualities such as empathy, a great listener, patient, kind, and helpful. This client wants a therapist who is willing to go through life stressors with them because they feel alone. My ideal client is willing to do the work necessary toward improvement. I am that ideal therapist that my ideal client needs to ensure that they have the necessary tools needed to succeed daily.

I believe counseling should be a collaborative approach that can sometimes be messy, challenging, and beautiful as you work to become your best self. As with most life experience, I believe you will learn more in the journey then you will in arriving at the destination. During this journey I believe it's vital that you have a safe space, without judgement, to understand and explore who you are and who you want to become. In my work with you I would be passionate about providing a nonjudgmental, safe place for you to find support.

What is your story? The question seems simple, but it isn’t. Your story is comprised of your life’s experiences from your perspective. Our stories contain themes of joy, excitement love, life and heartbreak, fear, anger and loss. With the demands of daily life such as career or relationships, it can be difficult to engage in being the author of your story. Who is narrating your story? Are negative thoughts dictating your self-image? Is your anxiety controlling your narrative? Or is your sadness causing you to stare at a blank page? Ultimately, everyone deserves a better story.

One of my very favorite quotes by Brene Brown is, "Vulnerability sounds like truth and feels like courage. Truth and courage aren't always comfortable, but they are never weakness." As life will sometimes present challenges that may be difficult to navigate, it's not necessary to navigate those challenges alone. I would love to support you in discovering the courage to navigate your truth. As a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional, I offer treatment that is goal oriented using a variety of therapeutic approaches.

Psychologist M. Scott Peck wrote in his besting selling work 'The Road Less Traveled' that "The attempt to avoid legitimate suffering lies at the root of all emotional illness." I have found this to be true in both my professional and personal life. My goal as a trauma-focused therapist to is assist clients to move into their emotional pain rather than away from it with the belief that the only way out of suffering is through.

***Not currently accepting new clients*** Finding a therapist where you can connect, trust, and experience real and lasting change can be a daunting process. I see children, adolescents, and adults who are working through identity, trauma, anxiety, depression, relationship challenges, and other issues. Using a variety of modalities, including EMDR, play therapy, solution-focused brief therapy, and CBT, we will work together to design and implement a treatment plan that is as unique as you are. I am committed to my clients and care deeply about helping them achieve positive outcomes through therapy. Telehealth or in-person sessions.
