I believe living a rewarding life begins with asking difficult questions. Pain and conflict are sometimes unavoidable, yet how are we empowering and reorienting ourselves to respond to them? Is it possible to experience thriving and genuine hope instead of simply staying afloat? As you wrestle through these types of questions, I am committed to providing you with support that considers your needs in a holistic way: mental, emotional, cultural, spiritual, etc. Together we can make space to explore meaning-making, cultivate self-awareness and understanding of others, test out new behaviors and ways of coping, process life experiences, and more.

I obtained my Master of Science in Marriage and Family Therapy from Fuller Theological Seminary and am a certified Prepare/Enrich premarital counseling facilitator. In recent years I have worked with couples, adults, and adolescents experiencing challenges including depression and anxiety, relational conflict, and identity formation. I work from an attachment-based perspective that takes into account your unique family background, childhood experiences, and relational needs.

I am a first-generation Taiwanese-American and have lived along the West Coast and also in Hong Kong. As a person of color, I am passionate about exploring the effects of internalized cultural and ethnic stressors on one’s mental health and sense of identity. I also value collaborating with dating and married couples to navigate relational conflict and disconnect.
