There are countless ways to live a life. I am genuinely curious to learn how you live yours, and to understand you as a person and the issues you want to address. I enjoy working with clients who are interested in learning more about themselves, and I am here to help you uncover the unnoticed, see the unseen, and voice the spoken. I value the therapeutic alliance built along our way and believe in its power in making changes happen.
Therapy is all for you. There is not a single right way to benefit from therapy, and you are invited to try, explore, and feel what works best for you. I incorporate different approaches such as psychodynamic approach and relational approach. I am also trauma-informed and strive to create a safe and supportive space that respects your own pace, especially when we revisit adverse past experiences. I understand that taking the step towards change is not easy, and I am here to walk with you to the place when you feel comfortable and ready.
Currently finishing up my master’s degree in Counseling for Mental Health and Wellness at NYU, I am an intern therapist working under the supervision of Sharon Tai, LMHC. With a bachelor’s degree in psychology from University of Wisconsin, I worked as a Research Assistant, studying motivation and academic & career choices of young adults and young professionals, which provides me with insight into the complexities behind important decisions and life transitions. Having lived in both China and the US, I also has developed a transcultural lens that helps him work with individual from various backgrounds. Additionally, I also provide therapy in both English and Mandarin Chinese for individuals who feel more fully expressed bilingually.
