Hello and a warm welcome! Some things about me: I am a second-generation Taiwanese- American woman specializing in providing culturally-attuned psychotherapy to treat low self-esteem, intergenerational trauma, family conflict, depression, anxiety, and a general sense of dissatisfaction with life. I graduated from UCLA with a Bachelor’s in Psychobiology in 2013 and completed my PhD in Clinical Psychology from Palo Alto University in 2020. In therapy, I integrate heavily from attachment work to focus on healing past traumas and insecurities in order to grow into a confident, self-loving, values-driven individual. In my free time, I love to garden, hangout with my pets, and explore new restaurants.

I appreciate you taking the time to learn about me and consider working together. As there are likely many therapists who can accompany you on your journey, here’s a bit about me, which may help you make a choice. I have worked with many people navigating anxiety, depression, stressors, life transitions, trauma, substance use, learning & neurological differences, and relationship issues. If we work together, you can expect to learn more about your authentic self – who you are at the core. I am curious to identify the unique gifts you bring to the world and illuminate how you can use those to address challenges and opportunities in your life. I will listen intently, be curious about your thoughts and feelings, and respect you are an expert in your own life. Whether your decision to seek a therapist is something you’ve considered for a long time or a decision just made, you may be experiencing a mix of thoughts and feelings. Perhaps some vulnerability asking for support from and confiding in someone you don’t yet know, maybe uncertainty about how therapy will help you. I view the very act of reading my profile as an act of courage and hope.

There are literally hundreds of therapy approaches. And yet, effective treatment is like learning to ride a bicycle: No matter what kind it is, you have to hop on and pedal if you want to get anywhere! I specialize in focused, experiential psychotherapy. That means together we pay direct attention to your genuine and palpable experience in session, including feelings, thoughts, discomfort, and body sensations. In some ways, it's like a shared meditation.

Few, if any, of us grow up in an environment that perfectly fits our needs. As we grow, we adapt to our surroundings in ways that may run counter to our vitality, health, and happiness. By exploring and understanding the underlying emotional and psychological patterns that shape our lives, we are able to develop choice in whether to engage in patterns and habits that no longer serve us. As a psychotherapist, I provide a curious, and compassionate presence, lending my heart and mind to this process of self-exploration and self-understanding.

Hi! If you are looking for clarity, growth, and peace– you're in the right place. I am a licensed psychologist providing therapy via telehealth for adult California residents, and I specialize in working with anxiety, stress, and self-esteem issues. I also work well with depression, adjustment concerns/life transitions, relationship issues/adverse relationship history, shame/criticism, people-pleasing, and perfectionism. My clients often wish to improve their view of themselves, understand themselves better, enhance their self-esteem, improve relationships in their life, and better manage mental health struggles like anxiety and depression along with general life stressors. My approach to therapy is rooted in cultivating a supportive and compassionate space where you can feel free to be authentically you while exploring yourself, gaining insight and awareness, and making positive changes aligned with your values and hopes. Through our work together, we will thoughtfully explore concerns you are struggling with, identify any unhelpful patterns negatively impacting you, and integrate new skills to successfully manage challenges, all within the context of an affirming, nonjudgmental space customized to you and informed by evidence-based treatment. I provide therapy for adults (ages 18+). Additionally, I have specialized training in young-adult aged clients as well as college students, as I have trained and worked in multiple college counseling center settings and very much enjoy working with this population.

A quote that has always brought me courage, "Into the Great Perhaps," moves us to embrace the unknown. It's an invitation to dream and a challenge to have the courage to step into uncertainty. This concept deeply resonates with my therapeutic approach. I emphasize that embracing uncertainty is where growth and transformation occur. In therapy, we'll explore the uncharted territories of your thoughts, emotions, and relationships and view life's challenges as opportunities for personal growth. Together, we'll journey toward self-discovery and personal development. Life is filled with uncertainties, and navigating the intricacies of relationships can often resemble an unmapped voyage. Yet, within these unknowns lies the potential for healing and transformation. Let's uncover what the "Great Perhaps" means for you. As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) with years of experience, I provide a safe, compassionate, and non-judgmental space for you to explore your experiences. I firmly believe in the resilience of the human spirit and our capacity for positive change, even amidst adversity. *Currently only offering recurring appointments between 9am-5pm.
