APPROACH & MORE ABOUT ME
Thank you for being interested in my services. Living in the bay area, life can be hectic and stressful, and we all can benefit from empathetic and empowering support. Many circumstances may have brought you to the point where depression, anxiety, trauma, or relationship difficulties have made it difficult for you to find the balance or direction in life. My goal as a therapist is to support individuals navigating through the challenges and attaining a fulfilling life. Together, we can ease your suffering, explore your concerns, and implement positive changes to meet your individualized needs.
I am a bilingual / bi-cultural (Mandarin, 中文 / English) Marriage and Family Therapist, licensed in the state of California. With a caring and non-judgmental approach, I honor each person's uniqueness and support one's individuation, a process of developing an authentic connection with one's inner self in Jungian psychotherapy. I am also trained in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), an effective model for addressing challenges and strengthening connections in couple, family, and personal relationships.
People often describe me as compassionate, easy to talk to, humorous, and insightful. I am committed to providing an empathetic environment to support you pursuing individuation and attaining a fulfilling life.
