About

I believe that your personal and ancestral pasts inform your present, but you also have the power to functionally rewrite and close the chapters that are rooted in powerlessness, guilt, fear, and shame, while freeing up the space and energy to curate the meaningful and meaning-filled future you deserve. As a queer, Chinese, eldest daughter of immigrants, I believe that it is important to hold space for all parts of you, no matter how much hate those parts have internalized, and no matter have much love those parts have been denied. An integrative, systemic, and humanistic framework guides my approach to healing.
I address the physical and social manifestations of stress and trauma. Systems of oppression aid and facilitate disconnection. You are invited to explore and reflect on your relationships with security, love, and ease. I work with adults on examining their attachments and relationships with substances using harm reduction and self determination.
My trauma recovery work comes from a compassionate, culturally affirming approach. I will meet you where you are from a place of respect and care. Whether you're dealing with insomnia, hopelessness, shame, chronic pain, substance abuse, dissociation, self-destructive behavior, etc. we'll use your strengths, values, and identities and go at your own pace.
