It is a tremendous joy to use my helping skills and genuine curiosity to support my clients in times of transition & challenge, to aid them in their growth.
We are all resilient, strong, and capable beings. And that's the powerful realization I love bringing forth in my clients.
In the work I do, it is important to explore an issue from different angles—mind, body, and spirit—holistically. Besides counseling, my professional background also includes social work, massage therapy, and Chinese acupressure.
Trauma Informed Therapy - Parts Work and EMDR: Having a trauma-informed lens in therapy means recognizing that some of your difficulties (symptoms) may have their roots in trauma. Our brains and bodies are deeply influenced by those experiences.

Counseling for "Helpers": I'm passionate about supporting people who are themselves "helpers" (family caregivers, nurses, teachers, healthcare workers, and those who feel overburdened in caring for others). You are compassionate and you do important work. Becoming more conscious and developing healthier responses & deeper self-care tools will make your work be more sustainable, fulfilling, and enjoyable. Read more.
Sessions with me are held in San Francisco, or virtually (via phone or secure video conference.)
Besides fluent English, I also speak Chinese-Cantonese.
Please feel free to contact me to schedule a free 20-minute phone consultation to see if it is aligned for us to work together.
I look forward to talking with you!
