As a 1st generation Vietnamese immigrant American, queer, polyamorous, ex-catholic, cisgender woman, and holistic trauma practitioner, I come to understand it’s a different dance for each person when working towards embodying joy, authenticity, and self-acceptance. I take into consideration your experiences with the external world and your relationship to your inner landscape: actions, bodily sensations, emotions, and thoughts.

I work with teens and adults of all ages & different walks of life. Areas I have supported clients with: overwhelm, stress, anxiety, depression, boundary & relationship challenges, communication, emotional regulation, and different categories of trauma (i.e. CPTSD, developmental, domestic violence, inescapable attack, intergenerational, medical, neglect, racial, sexual assault, and more), grief, life transitions, navigating two+ cultures, recovering from toxic masculinity, exploring their identities & relationship styles on the monogamy-non-monogamy spectrum, and current or former sex workers.

My approach is non-judgmental, informed-consent, and person-centered while drawing upon an intersectional lens to honor each unique human being where you are seen, heard, and feel like you matter. I believe in empowering clients to lead as you are the expert of your lived experiences while collaborating and at times challenging you on your reblooming journey. My clients appreciate having a range of options depending on what they need from session to session, month to month, or in general. The process, pace, and timing vary for each person. I incorporate mind-body practices into my sessions: Attachment-Based, Embodying Emotions, Internal Family Systems (IFS), ReBloom Coaching Method, Somatic Experiencing® (“SE™”), and Yoga.

If you are curious to explore if I would be the right support in this season of your life, I invite you to reach out with questions and/or schedule a 15-minute consultation over the phone or Zoom. I look forward to meeting you.
