Great to meet you!

In a session together we will shift feelings of overwhelmed with tenderness, and engaged compassion, We are present with your range of emotions, in an open, curious, empathetic expansive space and we aim to tap into your innate wisdom through insight, humor and joy. I hope that each session will be restorative, empowering, insightful and powerful.

A bit about my approach to therapy

As a Queer Asian therapist with an abolition feminist perspective, there is an awareness of different factors that come into play which may affect you. I share universal stories and purposefully disclose, with the intent to help you navigate what you are going through in life.

I tend to work with introverted, highly sensitive persons with a history of social anxiety,. Also have worked with many professionals with clutter issues.

What you can expect from our first session

Hope that each session will be, holistic, healing and restorative for you. I thoroughly enjoy working with you to establish better interdependent relations, enhance effective communication styles; as well as maintain heathier boundaries with work, family, friends and partner(s) and aid in identifying and integrating your values organically with you.
