I am a clinical psychologist and my areas of specialty include depression, anxiety, trauma, relational stress, and racial & cultural identity.

I am a licensed psychologist, board certified in clinical psychology, and I am committed to providing a collaborative, safe and respectful space where you can express your thoughts and feelings, no matter how difficult. My therapeutic approach is grounded in psychoanalytic theories with an attunement to relational and cultural dynamics. I am also trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy.

I obtained my doctorate degree at Rosemead School of Psychology in La Mirada, California, an institution accredited by the American Psychological Association (APA). My clinical internship was completed at the National Asian American Psychology Training Center (NAAPTC) at Richmond Area Multi Services, Inc (RAMS) in San Francisco, APA-accredited and focused on the intersection of culture and psychological well-being.
