Personal Statement

Let go, let in, and embrace - I believe these three steps can be the hardest, yet, with compassion, they can be the most life-giving and beautiful approaches to human life. It has always been my greatest pleasure to assist my clients in the process of letting go, letting in, and embracing life more intimately. The strength, love, and compassion that shine through our work together is deeply rewarding for me.

Clients I work with include individuals who seek to process and transform the impacts of trauma or loss, individuals who seek to relieve burden associated with hoarding or clutter related issues, and individuals who seek to work through the challenges presented to them in their relationships or work/career path.

I apply evidence-supported therapies, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Compassion Focused Therapy. Extensively involving in research enables me to apply the most up-to-date knowledge to clinical work. My expertise in the psychological impacts of trauma and my personal Zen practice have also profoundly influenced my therapeutic approach.

Cost per Session: $180 - $200. Also speak Mandarin and Taiwanese
