You might be someone who is exhausted from looking for a therapist who looks even a little like you. Maybe you are feeling grief, heaviness, sadness, and even anger about...everything. Perhaps you have saved every mental health Instagram slide deck and TikTok, but you still don’t feel like it’s clicking for you. You may be someone at a crossroads with the story and template you have been told you need to fit into. You may suspect that there is more—more to expect, hope for, and be.
Anxiety can show up in a variety of ways. I have helped clients navigate anxiety as a response to life stressors, past trauma, family issues, or within the context of formal anxiety diagnosis. Together, we can find a way to find grounding, peace, and healing.
As a second generation Taiwanese American woman, I am passionate about providing a therapeutic space for people who hold marginalized and intersectional identities. Through lived experience and professional experience working with a wide variety of clients, this has become my primary focus in training, continuing education, and personal purpose.
Life has a way of throwing curveballs just when we think things might finally start to feel predictable. I'm here to help! Whether you are on your own for the first time, moving in or out of relationships, expanding your family, wrestling with how to put words to your experiences and identity, or going through any sort of change or shift, having a trusted therapist walk through and process these transitions can be invaluable!
I am comfortable helping clients navigate religious trauma, spiritual deconstruction, and the ways spirituality interacts with intersectional identity. My personal and professional experiences in the world of religious institutions laid a foundation for my passion for social justice advocacy, a postcolonial and womanist framework, and a still-growing comfort amidst the in-between.
