Telehealth

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who has over 4 years of experience providing mental health therapy and case management to people from many diverse backgrounds, especially people from monolingual-, immigrant Asian and Pacific Islander backgrounds. My experiences include working with both people who have delayed mental health treatment for many years often due to internal and external stigma, as well as working with people who are accessing mental health treatment early on following an acute stressor. My therapy approach seeks to honor the bravery of trying mental health therapy. I primarily utilize Narrative Therapy, Mindfulness-Based, and Internal Family Systems approaches, within a trauma-sensitive, client-centered, and liberation psychology lens. My hope for all of the clients who work with me is to reignite their internal wisdom; to ignite their capacity to be completely with themselves. I am conversationally bilingual in Cantonese and fully bilingual in English.
