Originally a Californian, I studied Economics at MIT and spent the first decade of my career on Wall Street as an investment banker, investment analyst, and trader. As a second generation Asian American, I was shaped by the immigrant experiences of my family, the broad and deep effects of intergenerational trauma, and the pervasive but often subtle challenges of race and class. To paraphrase author Stephanie Foo, I felt I had to achieve the American Dream because I had no other choice. As I entered adulthood, I became more conscious of how mental health issues had shaped both me and others in my life. This gradual waking up process eventually motivated me to pursue both a life and work focused on healing. Being a psychotherapist is my career, but it is a deeply personal calling as well.
