I have a deep interest in the care and welfare of children. I am also a firm believer of how children’s behaviors are intertwined with their families and the environment they live in. Growing up in Malaysia and attending trilingual schools throughout my childhood and adolescent period, I am highly aware of the importance of multiculturalism and diversity. I enjoy working with people from a variety backgrounds and have passion to advocate for the under-served populations and help them to raise their needs.

Midwest Asian Health Association's Community Mental Health Clinic was established in 2015 with the vision to provide linguistically appropriate, culturally sensitive, and financially affordable mental health services to underserved Asian, Asian American & Pacific Islander, and Asian immigrant populations in the Chicagoland area. The counselors and staff at MAHA CMHC are dedicated to creating a Chicago Chinatown community in which all people, regardless of language or ability to pay, will be able to access mental health services to improve their mental, emotional, and physical well-being.

Our staff of licensed mental health professionals are able to provide services in Mandarin, Cantonese, and English, and are experienced working with youth, adolescents, adults, and elders. Services include:
