Approach:I believe that therapy should be client centered as well as naming the elephant in the room. I will often incorporate humor into therapy as it has been researched that it can be very effective in managing stress as well laughter increasing endorphins within the system.
My professional interests are working with those struggling with anxiety, depression, self-destructive behaviors, as well as any other mental health issues. Being someone who was adopted at a young age I am passionate in working with those who are working through identity and belonging as well as those who have experienced adoption. I am also passionate about advocating for Asian Americans as I strongly believe that all minorities have a voice.
I look forward to learning and developing your knowledge of DBT – learning to manage the daily stresses that you are facing to create a life worth living.
Hobbies: Spending time with my family (including Charles, my), traveling, food & food culture, tech things including the occasional video game.
