I am dedicated to supporting BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, and other marginalized communities, recognizing the importance of acknowledging our full humanity and all of its intersections. As a 1.5 generation, Chinese American woman who grew up in several countries, I have insight into the experiences of immigrants and the kinds of expectations that are common for many in the Asian American diaspora. I have applied this insight in my work as a therapist, working with clients as they build upon inner strengths and efforts to heal. I believe in your capacity to begin breaking cycles of intergenerational trauma.
I often work with adults who may be experiencing anxiety, depression, trauma, perfectionism, burnout, grief, and life transitions (e.g., changes in work/relationships, loss of a loved one, etc.). I also have experience working with adults experiencing changes in identity and autonomy related to illness (e.g., providing care for loved one with a progressive neurological disorder, being diagnosed with a minor neurocognitive disorder).
How I work:
I’m a registered psychological assistant (supervised by Bedford Palmer II, PhD) with the group practice Deeper Than Color. I earned my PhD in clinical psychology at the University of California, Berkeley. I completed my predoctoral internship and postdoctoral fellowship in the Clinical Psychology Training Program at the University of California, San Francisco. As a researcher, I developed expertise in how the brain supports emotion and empathy, and how the emotional lives of family caregivers relate to their well-being.
