I offer therapy for Asian Americans and mixed-roots Asians in despair after trauma. You were raised by immigrant parents and experienced emotional neglect and abuse. You now feel like you don’t belong anywhere and are looking for a sense of “home.” You feel isolated, hopeless, angry, and anxious. You desperately want out of this internal hellscape. You want to feel confident and grounded, not frozen and furious when you interact with others, especially your family. There is a way to detangle from the harm that has you stuck and move towards greater self-esteem and meaningful connections with others.
I welcome you as the Asian or mixed-roots Asian that you are, carrying the experiences tied to the body that you inhabit. We’ll consider what approaches will most benefit you: brain-based (Brainspotting), body-based (Sensorimotor Psychotherapy), and talk therapies. As you shift and grow, so will the ways in which we work together. My approach is gentle, nurturing, and encouraging.
You deserve therapy that acknowledges all of who you are with a non-judgmental therapist. I know what it’s like to yearn for a space where you can learn how to be your true self. When you’re ready to begin, I’ll be ready for you. Visit my website to book your free 20 minute consultation video chat or call today!
