Hello and welcome!
My name is Tzu-Ping, and the pronunciation sounds close to Su-Ping. I am from Taiwan and am licensed in Illinois for the past 12 years. Here are some stories about me, and hope to share about yours!
Since childhood, I have always been curious about different parts of the world and people’s lives in various cultures. I started to live in the United States in 2008 and have experienced many moves and life transitions since then. I began to have first-hand experiences and more understanding about what it means to have interruptions to the comfortable familiarities and breaks of the sense of self, struggles, isolation, uncertainty, and doubts are all part of these adjustments.
However, it’s also because of these life transitions, I believe that the preferred self and new developments in life also grow from these challenging and seemingly unstable times.
Therapy can be a journey to new territories of meaningful developments and exploration of how we want to be in this world. My therapy approach is narrative and collaborative, and I care deeply about equity and respect for diversity. I also believe in the multi-facet of an individual and the possibilities of life that labels would not define. Our conversations aim to support you toward your preferred direction in your life journey.
I am looking forward to working with you!
