Life is a continuous process. Maybe it is a process of relationship struggle or life transition. We may feel anxious and stuck in repetitive patterns and find it difficult to pinpoint the reason. Partnering with me, we will pay close attention to your physical sensations, embodied emotions, and internal world. My immigrant background helps me attune with BIPOC communities, especially with Asian-Americans and international students. We can use a combination of art and talk to work through anxiety, trauma, cross-cultural adjustment, low self-esteem, being a people-pleaser, or perfectionist tendency.
As an integrative therapist, my approach is warm, trauma-informed and attachment-based with a combination of art therapy and talk psychotherapy. I am trained in Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy to help individuals, families and couples. I provide art therapy for clients to externalize their internal world that may be difficult to express with words.
Seeing a therapist may sound intimidating, but sharing your story with a supportive professional allows your story to be heard and seen. Together, with compassionate and collaborative support, you will connect your creativity and curiosity to embrace your own integration.
