I am the founder of a Mandarin-English-Spanish Trilingual group practice (Mind & Body Garden Psychology) and there are currently 8 therapists, with different specialties. We provide psychotherapy services and psychological assessment services. I strongly advocate evidence-based treatment to develop a more positive attitude and to build a life that is happier, more balanced, and more meaningful. Many of my clients have a hard time dealing with stress or transitions in life. Others may use some help with improving communication and relationship. They all have a common desire to take active steps to make meaningful and lasting changes.

I have been trained in evidence-based therapeutic approaches such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Mindfulness Compassionate Approaches. Therapy requires teamwork and I love to work with my clients collaboratively and tailor treatment to meet their needs.

I am a Mandarin/English bilingual psychologist specialized in treating insomnia and anxiety among both children and adults. My colleagues and I also administer psychological testings for children and adults for diagnostic clarification, such as ASD, ADHD, learning disorder, mood disorder, etc. You can book our services via our website, call, text, or email.

大家好,我是持美国加州执照的临床心理学家,在旧金山湾区做心理干预和心理测评工作,是循证心理临床实践(evidence-based treatment)的坚决拥护者。我相信,在工作中运用以大量研究为基础,在临床实践中反复被证明有效的干预和测评方法,才是对来访者负责的做法。来访者有知情权,了解自己接受的是什么样子的咨询服务;有话语权,积极的参与治疗计划的制定与执行;有选择权,决定是不是要继续治疗,是不是要换咨询师,等等。

我个人擅长治疗焦虑和失眠。我们诊所目前有8位咨询师,服务语言有中文,英文,西班牙语。我们有针对压力管理,情绪调整,焦虑,抑郁,失眠,亲子关系,夫妻关系,有特殊需要的家庭,智商天赋测验,多动症测验,等等,多种服务。我们还提供失眠治疗小组,正念抑郁治疗小组,家长支持小组等多种小组服务。

第一次面谈是信息收集和互相了解的过程,第一次面谈之后,我和来访者会讨论我们是不是合适一起工作,我是不是能够为来访者提供所需要的帮助。如果不合适,我会鼓励来访者找寻其他的咨询师。如果我有合适的咨询师资源,我也会推荐。每个人都是独特的个体,都有自己的优点。我希望能够帮助你更好的认识自己,接受自己,欣赏自己,和你聊聊你心中的烦恼。生活是一段旅程,而不是赛跑。非常感谢您,允许我,短暂的参与到你的这段旅程中。您如果对我们的服务感兴趣,欢迎在我们的网站直接预约合适的咨询师。我们的网站有中文和英文两种语言。也欢迎您通过电话或者邮件联系我们!
