Born and raised in Texas as a child of immigrants, I carry a big place in my heart for those struggling with mental health and interpersonal concerns related to the complicated dance of honoring one’s heritage while developing what is authentic or true to them.

 

Just as I carry with me a distinct vantage point as a Chinese American woman, I relish the process of getting to know the unique lived experience of my clients as it may be shaped by their cultural identities and circumstances.

 

I continuously practice looking at the world around me through a feminist-multicultural lens that acknowledges the influence of systems, context, and our inherent need for connection. In the therapy space, this can involve noticing power and where it resides as well as embracing all facets of one’s identities.

My Mission:
My insistent hope is to help my clients through unhelpful patterns, shame, and disconnection into increased understanding, healing, and connection with themselves and others. While co-creating safety and trust, I relish seeing the therapeutic relationship used to practice new ways of being.
My Journey:
Following graduation from NYU with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Child and Adolescent Mental Health Studies, I worked as an anesthesia technician while taking pre-med classes and preparing for medical school—or so I thought. I followed a gut feeling toward the field of mental health and began my graduate training in counseling psychology. In 2019 I received a Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology at Texas Woman’s University and then continued my studies at the doctoral level. I am currently a counseling psychology doctoral candidate at TWU.

Self-Care Rituals:

Enjoying nature via a picnic, gardening, hiking, or napping in a hammock with my dog. I also enjoy jogging, tennis, and yoga to de-stress and feel into my body.
