Bio

You thought your life would be figured out by now. But life doesn’t look the way you expected it. No matter how hard you work, nothing you do ever feels good enough. Being stuck in your thoughts paralyzes you with making decisions. You don’t want to make mistakes. To the outside world, it seems like you always have it together. Yet in reality, you constantly feel unsure—as if you are doing life “wrong.” You feel trapped in your mind instead of truly living your life. Battling with your thoughts have left you overwhelmed, exhausted, and feeling alone. You know that change begins with you, but you’re not sure how or where to start.

Therapy is for anyone who wants to live, love, think and feel better. As an Asian American therapist, I provide culturally responsive care and specialize in anxiety, depression and grief with a focus on your racial/cultural identity. My goal is to help you let go of societal and familial expectations, deepen an understanding of yourself, have fulfilling relationships, and live a life you can be proud of.

You are deserving of love, compassion, & acceptance – including from yourself! I’m here to provide a safe space to help you release judgment, cultivate self-compassion, & embrace the joy that comes with knowing that you are more than enough. See what living as your authentic self looks like. I offer in-person therapy for residents of Orange County, Long Beach, and Los Angeles, and online therapy throughout California. Visit my website at www.vanbuiphd.com to contact me today for a consultation.
