Need a space to care for yourself and tend to your own needs? I welcome you. Healing through therapy, although sometimes stigmatized, is an experience that most of us need in the current world. Our lives have been disrupted by unexpected and devastating events, which intensifies our stress, anxiety and loneliness. There is no better time to connect. Partnering with me, you can create a space where you feel comfortable connecting with your tender parts, discovering your strength, and most importantly, being your genuine self with no apology. That’s my experience as a client of therapy, and also what you will receive from me.
I use techniques supported by research, such as EMDR, CBT, MI, DBT, and Mindfulness. In addition, I draw on expressive and creative therapy skills through art, movement and play. You will deepen self-understanding, which in turn will help me meet your preferences and cultural background. I call it the bespoke tailoring experience in finding the perfect fit.
As an Asian non-binary person (pronouns: they/them), I have years of experience advocating for BIPOC, LGBTQIA+ rights and social justice. I believe in best quality of care for everyone and clients' self-autonomy. Depending on availability, I offer sessions on a sliding scale.
你需要⼀个实现⾃我关怀和满⾜⾃我需求的空间吗?我在这⾥欢迎你。尽管有时被污名 化,⼼理疗愈的过程其实是我们⼤多数⼈在当前这个社会中最需要的⼀种体验。因为在这 段特殊的时间⾥,社交隔离和前所未有的未知变化加剧了我们的压⼒,焦虑感和孤独 感,所以现在是寻求帮助的最佳的时机。我们的合作可以为你创建⼀个舒适的空间。在这 个空间⾥,你可以与内⼼最柔软的部分相通,发现⾃⼰内在的⼒量和适应⼒,并且最重要 的是,成为⽆需为活得真实⽽感到抱歉的⾃⼰。这是我自己作为⼀名⼼理治疗的客⼈的经历, 也是我将通过我们的合作为你提供的感受。
我运⽤被科学研究证明有效的心理疗法,包含CBT(认知⾏为疗法),DBT(辩证⾏为疗法), MI(动机式访谈法)和正念/冥想疗法。并且我⿎励采⽤通过艺术、身体动作和游戏等方式进行的具有创造力的疗法,来帮助表达和处理情绪和想法。经过我们的合作,你会加深对自我的了解,这将帮助我为你制定更适合你的需 求,性格特点和⽂化背景的治疗⽅法。就宛如在上好的裁缝店里体验量身定做的服务一般。
作为⼀名有亚裔背景的⾮⼆元性别认同者(我的称呼是:ta),我具有多年为有色人种和性少数人群发声和争取平等权利的经验。我相信每一个人都值得最好的帮助和关怀,并且每位来访者都是自己生命的主人。在保险和日程都允许的情况下,我也可以根据你的收入提供相对优惠的治疗价格。
