Therapy provides a space to process and reclaim experiences, thoughts, and emotions that may have felt stuck or weighed down by the pressures of our surroundings, cultural practices, and deep-seated personal beliefs. These barriers may be reflected in your family relationships, experiences of trauma and loss, and interactions with institutional forces. As a narrative-centered therapist, I will provide a supportive environment for you to deepen your understanding of yourself, challenge these barriers, and reframe your story in order to make empowered choices that align with your values and goals.

I take a collaborative, client-centered approach to therapy that integrates theories from liberation psychology, existentialism, somatic approaches, and multiculturalism. I aim to provide holistic, trauma-informed, and culturally responsive care while utilizing both evidenced-based and psychodynamic modalities. As your therapist, you will experience me as encouraging, active, and honest.

I have experience working with trauma, substance use addiction, and identity development and am a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP). As the daughter of Southeast Asian refugees, I have firsthand experience living between cultures and navigating inherited trauma and intersectional identities. From both a professional and personal perspective, I believe in the spirit of human resilience and the ability to heal through storytelling.
