The cause of suffering can also be the means of release and healing. I strive to construct a holding environment that creates a safe physical and psychological space wherein clients feel more free, more seen, and more authentic, so that spontaneous interactions, feelings, and experiences can occur. Therapy is an illuminating journey where I collaborate with clients as a fellow traveler to explore the unseen and better equipped to constant growth with self-acceptance, courage, resilience, and creativity.

I graduated and received clinical training from the Family Institute at Northwestern University. I am an eclectic practitioner whose integrative approach focuses on incorporating mindfulness and self-acceptance to holistically empower the connectedness of mind, body, and spirit.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and National Certified Counselor (NCC) who offers therapy in both English and Mandarin. Bringing the appreciation for the "it depends" wisdom to therapy, I collaborate with clients intuitively and spontaneously to uncover what we do not know we do not know, and to transform pain into possibilities.

心里面的东西确实很复杂微妙,坦白说,我没有一个包治百“病”的奇效解药。关于你的那些难以言说的痛苦不安,自己跟自己斗争的矛盾疲惫,或是对未来的无力迷茫,可能并不会一夜之间消失。然而,我想邀请你跟我一起相信心理咨询中那股潜移默化和自然而然的力量会带来逐渐的清晰和透彻——伴随着把未知变成已知,甚至是意外的探索到了一些我们不知道自己不知道的,却又默默影响着我们一言一行一念的东西,重新品味斟酌,从它们身上汲取疗愈的生命力。

探寻内心痛苦根源的过程,也是通往解脱和疗愈的道路。在这段旅途中,我会像你的旅伴一样与你密切协作。让自我接纳、勇气、心理弹性和创造力的光线照进尘封已久的创伤记忆,或是困扰着你的某段关系(与自我或他人),抑或是眼前的一些困境。你会觉得你更加的了解自己了,也似乎更有信心和力量去卸下之前背负的沉重包袱,更加真实自在的做你自己,轻装上阵选择你真正想走的路。

我毕业及接受临床培训于美国西北大学的心理咨询硕士项目,并曾在芝加哥亚裔服务中心 (Asian Human Services) 实习。自身的十二年海外留学经验以及在为多元群体提供心理咨询的过程中,我深刻了解到文化适应、身份认同等议题与身心的困扰交织在一起是多么的错综复杂。我希望能够为你构建一个温暖的空间,和你一起厘清内心的需求和探讨如何发挥自己最大的潜能。在整合的疗法中,我致力于融合正念与自我接纳,从而拓展身体、心智、灵性的整体连接。我会根据你的需求提供或融合多种疗法,其中包括:心理动力、眼动身心重建法 (EMDR)、认知行为疗法 (CBT) 、接纳与承诺疗法 (ACT) 、内在家庭系统疗法 (IFS) 。
