Registered Associate Marriage and Family Therapist, AMFT 99708
I have a master's degree in counseling psychology from the University of San Francisco and years of clinical experience working with marginalized populations. I excel in providing therapy to individuals with trauma histories as well as to couples and families working on establishing better communication. I'm aware that everyone has a trauma history that affects their current relationship with self and others.
As a Chinese American woman, I understand the struggle of being stuck “in between” two cultures, not knowing exactly where you fit in. I’m a therapist who values the therapeutic relationship, and while I’m the expert in relationships, you are the expert of yourself.
MY BACKGROUND AND EXPERIENCE
I’m a culturally competent therapist who practices cultural humility with all my clients. I’m also a trauma-focused therapist and believe we all process trauma in different ways, allowing a sense of autonomy for my clients to process challenges in their own terms.
I provide services to individuals, couples, and families using an integrative approach of attachment theories, positive psychology, and cognitive behavioral therapy.
I have a natural ability to be an empathic listener and healer. I’m personable and enjoy strengthening the relationship between myself and my clients.
The principles and values that inspire and guide me are authenticity, having a sense of purpose, and personal growth.
