I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (New York and Hawaii) and a National Board Certified Counselor. My clinical experience includes both inpatient and outpatient capacities in all age ranges though I have specialized in severe mental illness and child/adolescent psychology.
My counseling style encompasses an integrative approach that is person-centered and strength-based with specialization in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Dialectal Behavioral Therapy, Trauma-Informed Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy, Motivational Interviewing and Christian Counseling. As a bilingual (Mandarin Chinese and English) first generation American citizen to immigrant parents, I am able to empathize with the difficulties of navigating between different cultural expectations and finding personal identity as a hyphenated American. I am also a military spouse and am familiar with the unique issues facing military families.
With regards to my communication style, I am straightforward and transparent yet empathetic and compassionate in supporting and empowering clients to reach their full potential and becoming confident decision-makers. I look forward to taking this journey of change with you!
