Personal Statement

"Happiness is determined more by one's state of mind than by external events." -Dalai Lama. I am here to help you and your family to achieve the goal of happiness. The benefits are far beyond merely "feeling good". Happiness leads to increased success at finding a partner, healthier marriage, stronger relationships, better physical and mental health, and a long life (up to ten years longer!). Happiness is an achievable goal, something we can deliberately cultivate through practice and effort much like any other skill. Would you like to start your journey to happiness?

I am trained in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, which is a holistic, non-violent, mindfulness-based, and attachment-based somatic approach that is very effective for trauma, developmental trauma and attachment wound. Sensorimotor Psychotherapy is based on Interpersonal Neurobiology (IPNB) which is the also the main influence of my parenting consultation.

I was born and raised in Beijing, China. With my eastern background, I am connected to mindfulness-based practice and life philosophies, personally and professionally. Growing up, I have seen my own family and the society in China suffering from different forms of trauma including generational trauma. I found my healing through this and let's heal together.

Cost per Session: $150 - $300. Also speak Mandarin
