About Me

You may have experienced ongoing anxiety, pain, hurt, loss, or difficult transitions - recently or from years ago - and desire to feel more at ease in your mind, body, and spirit. My role is to support you as you make sense of what has happened to you, to those you love, or those you work with. As an entrepreneur AND therapist, I also enjoy supporting fellow helping professionals, small business owners, entrepreneurs in secondary trauma & burnout prevention & recovery. I am passionate about serving communities and people of color (POC) as a 2nd-gen Taiwanese American therapist that works from an anti-racist framework.

As a Certified EMDR Therapist, I place an emphasis on the mind-body/gut-brain connection. In sessions, you can expect for me to to utilize Brené Brown's research on shame through the Daring Way™, trauma-sensitive mindfulness, Internal Family Systems (IFS)-informed EMDR therapy, integrative/holistic health & somatic perspectives, and the Enneagram, when appropriate. I seek to help clients to find solutions and to work from their strengths when it comes to counseling.
