About me

I am an experienced LCSW Psychotherapist who is dedicated to helping adult individuals cope with anxiety, depression, relationship issues and personal growth.

I decided to become a therapist after my training in social work school. I was born and raised in China and came to the US for higher education. My personal experience of assimilating into this complicated culture has informed my clinical practice throughout my career. My passion to help my fellow human beings from a bilingual and bicultural perspective, as well as a curiosity for the human psyche, has naturally led me to the career of a psychotherapist. My experience working in both inpatient and outpatient psychiatric facilities has empowered me with the knowledge and tools to address a broad range of mental health challenges, from severe mental illnesses to struggles of personal growth. I offer a free 15-minute phone consultation to gather some general information on the reason for seeking treatment. Once we both agree to move forward, an initial 60-minute intake session is scheduled for a more thorough psychosocial assessment. Depending on the nature of the case, I might request a second intake session to complete the initial assessment. After the intake process, we will mutually decide if we will move forward with establishing treatment together. If it's determined that it was not a good fit, I will help facilitate referrals and offer resources. I primarily use a psychodynamic-oriented modality in treatment where we look at the struggles together both through the lens of history and present feelings. Progress will be reflected through a clearer understanding of your experience, a better ability to cope with symptoms, and flexibility in thinking. I normally do not assign homework but would encourage clients to bring what we worked on in session into their daily lives. I prefer working with clients who are interested in knowing themselves better and value progress.
