“We must recognize and nurture the creative parts of each other without always understanding what will be created.” –Audrey Lorde

The connection between a therapist and client is arguably the most important factor of any therapeutic relationship. Every client deserves to feel truly seen and celebrated by their therapist.

 

In my experience as a client, I struggled for many years to find a therapist who intimately understood how my intersecting identities contextualized my experiences. As a queer, transracial adoptee and Korean Filipino American femme, the question of how to navigate life in the duality and the in-between has perpetually challenged and inspired me throughout my life, delivering me to this work.

 

Today, I am passionate about working with clients of marginalized gender, sexuality, and racial identities who are exploring their truths related to culture, race, generation, queerness, and spirituality. It is my sincere hope that together we can explore the important intersection of personal transformation and social change.

My approach...

The tenets of social justice, creativity, and trauma-informed care are central to my therapeutic approach. I work from an anti-oppression and multicultural lens and integrate elements of attachment theory, Internal Family Systems, somatic therapy and the creative arts within sessions. I fundamentally believe that each person is the expert of their own life, and that my role is to collaborate with each client in finding their individualized path to healing.


In addition to talk therapy, I gently invite clients to explore their full range of expression through art making, storytelling, music, breathwork, and movement; the body can understand truth in ways that words cannot. I honor this courageous work by showing up to every session with an intent to foster a collaborative, consensual, and radically affirming space.
 

As my client, you can expect to increase self-compassion, explore and reclaim identity, deconstruct unhelpful patterns and behaviors, develop new coping skills, process overwhelming experiences and emotions, and work toward more balance in life and trust within self.
 

We will begin wherever you are, however you are able: micro shifts are often trailheads to big transformation.

Professional training & memberships...

I hold a master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling with a specialization in Art Therapy from Antioch University Seattle, both a CAAHEP & CACREP-accredited institution. I am an Associate Mental Health Counselor in Washington State (#MC61362342) and a Provisional Art Therapist by the Art Therapy Credentials Board (ATCB #22-556).
 

I have worked in a variety of settings, including a community mental health agency whose mission centered on providing affirming care to the Seattle queer and trans communities. I have served across the developmental lifespan with preschoolers, refugee youth, and elders celebrating work in anti-bias education, social emotional learning, and community-based art
therapy.
