Healing and thriving are both hard struggles, but you don’t have to struggle alone. Allow me to walk with you on your path, and I will lend guidance and perspective without ever imposing my will over yours. Let’s work together to find the next steps to whatever you bring, the middle path between the burdens and the joys.


As a queer, trans, Taiwanese-American, and neurodivergent identified person, my therapeutic stance combines my professional and personal experiences with what I learn from you so we may tailor the best approach.  This can be more somatic-leaning, philosophically-inclined, skills-based, or any combination thereof.  And since there is no way around the fact that we live in a society, therapy must also confront our responsibility to ourselves, our community, and the external factors that narrow our choices in the first place. Trained and practiced primarily in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), a cousin of CBT, as well as given my identities, I can offer a unique perspective on both the process of therapy and the environmental pressures we face.


And finally, when we have come as far as we can together, let us part ways amicably and healthily – I won’t deny that my personal goal in our sessions is to render myself obsolete, to contribute to a world that one day needs no borders, inequity, and even therapists. To those of you who have been neglected by our white-dominated institutions, who have sought help from those that don’t (and maybe cannot ever) “get it”, and who have been told you have or are a problem – let’s talk!
