Therapy is an opportunity to address problems we want to change, gain insights into our concerns, and develop new ways of being. My approach to therapy is best described as integrative with a strong grounding in psychodynamic, relational, and multicultural principles. I draw on cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, and accelerated experiential dynamic psychotherapy to co-construct effective strategies for everyday life beyond the therapy room. I strive to provide clients a safe space to increase awareness, make meaning of the experience, and begin to cope and overcome life's difficulties. I provide individual and couple's therapy. I speak Mandarin and English.
My areas of expertise include grief, loss, trauma, relationship concerns, existential/spiritual issues, anxiety, and depression. Born and raised in Taiwan, I moved to the US as an adult. I have advanced knowledge in working with immigrants, children of immigrants, and international students. I enjoy facilitating cross-cultural communication and navigating minority experience.
I am a licensed psychologist and I completed my pre-doctoral training at Stanford University, and my postdoctoral training at UC Berkeley. I received my Master's Degree in Human Development and Psychology from Harvard University. I specialize in helping people pursue academic, career, and professional success and learn stress management strategies.
