I believe that everyone, when provided with a safe and supportive environment, is capable of overcoming various curveballs that life throws our way. Therapy is a place that provides just that. I’m happy that you’re here, and I want to congratulate you for taking your first big step toward positive change! Whether it’s a tough breakup, academic or career related stress, or simply finding your own voice in a society that tells you who you ought to be – there is no need to deal with your pain alone.
I will listen to you without judgement, empower you to take back authorship of your story, and help you unlearn coping skills that helped you survive thus far, but not necessarily thrive. Above all, I will be your supporter and will celebrate every step toward your goal, whether that is forward, backwards, or even sideways, as progress is rarely ever linear.
As a Japanese-Chinese American, I pride myself in a collaborative and multicultural approach to therapy. I don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach and will tailor our sessions to meet your unique needs. I look forward to helping you get unstuck from whatever situation you came to therapy for, and to join you in this difficult yet beautiful journey.
