I have 25 years of experience working as a therapist for children, adolescents, families, and adults. I work with people who are dealing with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, PTSD, grief/loss, trauma, self-image, and any stresses related to race or sexual identity/orientation.

My counseling style is warm, accepting, and empowering. I use a combination of counseling techniques to suit your needs. I am client-centered which means I help you reach YOUR goals and dreams.

I am affirming of the LGBTQ community as well as people who engage in alternative spiritual practices.

I am a LGBTQ-affirming therapist who works with people from different walks of life. I serve adolescents, ages 13 – 17, and adults, ages 18+.

I am a woman of Asian and white decent so I understand the struggles of minorities locally and nationally.

I specialize in helping people overcome and heal from a variety of traumas including but not limited to childhood trauma, relationship trauma, religious trauma, domestic trauma, community trauma, medical trauma, and complex trauma.​

I use a combination of therapeutic interventions including cognitive-behavioral techniques (CBT), including trauma-focused CBT, eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), trauma-informed pscho-education, and mindfulness just to mention a few.
