Description of Counselor/Practice

Therapy provides a space to process and reclaim experiences, thoughts, and emotions that may have felt stuck or weighed down by the pressures of our surroundings, cultural practices, and deep-seated personal beliefs. These barriers may be reflected in your family relationships, experiences of trauma and loss, and interactions with institutional forces. As a narrative-centered therapist, I will provide a supportive environment for you to deepen your understanding of yourself, challenge these barriers, and reframe your story in order to make empowered choices that align with your values and goals. I take a collaborative, client-centered approach to therapy that integrates theories from liberation psychology, existentialism, somatic approaches, and multiculturalism. As the daughter of Southeast Asian refugees, I have firsthand experience living between cultures and navigating inherited trauma and intersectional identities. From both a professional and personal perspective, I believe in the spirit of human resilience and the ability to heal through storytelling.
