“Love takes off the masks that we fear we cannot live without and know we cannot live within.” -James Baldwin

We all deserve to be loved and celebrated for who we are, just as we are. Systems of oppression like racism, ableism, and sexism tell us that only some parts of us are worthy, forcing us to feel like we need to hide other parts of ourselves to belong. I believe you’re here because you know you deserve to be whole. Therapy is one way we can resist this marginalization and practice loving ourselves fully, making space for our joy without guilt or shame.

 

I am a queer, neurodivergent, Vietnamese-Filipina daughter of immigrants, and these intersecting identities deeply inform the way I approach therapy. I know what it is like to feel caught between cultures, fragmented, and othered. All of who you are is welcome here, and I would be honored to get to know you.

My approach...

The heart of therapy is our relationship. I hope you will find me to be a non-judgmental, thoughtful, and honest collaborator as we build our therapeutic relationship together. Growth is not always easy or comfortable, and I am glad to come alongside you as we navigate new waters. I aim to incorporate your personal and cultural strengths into our sessions, and acknowledge the complexity and nuances of your experiences.

 

I strive to be flexible and approach therapy in a way that best fits your needs. That being said, I tend to lean toward therapy modalities like Narrative Therapy, Somatic Therapy, Trauma-Informed Therapy, and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. Other theories that I lean on are attachment theory, disability justice, decoloniality, and liberation-oriented frameworks.

Professional training & memberships...

I am currently in a master’s program for Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Adler University, a social justice-oriented and CACREP-accredited institution. Previously, I earned my Bachelor of Science in Pharmaceutical Chemistry with a minor in Psychology at the University of California, Davis.

 

I have completed a number of workshops on topics like tending to racial trauma, increasing accessibility of care for people in larger bodies, and neurodiversity affirming practice.
