So glad you are here, my fellow traveler. I am here to support you wholeheartedly.

As a bilingual psychotherapist for adult individuals and partners/couples, I specialize in trauma, sex, gender, relationship, and eating disorders. I support people to achieve inner calm, relational mindfulness, body liberation & pleasure permission.

I am privileged to be one of the very few psychotherapists with extensive educational and clinical experience in both the West and the East. My work is informed both by my professional training and my lived experience as an Asian queer immigrant/diaspora. My practice is social justice-oriented and centered on marginalized bodies including AAPI/BIPOC, LGBTQ+, and immigrants.

I bring you a unique integrative approach and strive to provide compassionate support tailored to your needs.

  • Sex therapy for individuals and couples/partners (intimacy issues, unmatched desire, exploring kink, consensual non-monogamy, etc.)
