Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
My goals are to support your growth and healing, to help you feel heard and less alone in the process and to assist you in making the changes that will lead you to a happier and more authentic life. My therapeutic style is warm, thoughtful and engaged. I use a relational approach to create a safe and nonjudgmental environment, where we can collaborate and work towards your goals. I specialize in healing parent-child relationships, and in working with children and adolescents with a variety of concerns. Through training with UCSF Child Trauma Research Project, I am able to work with very young children who have experienced trauma. I also work with adults who are struggling with relationships, self-esteem, or cross-cultural issues. I’m bi-cultural and bi-lingual in Cantonese. With my background as a Chinese-American, I can be particularly helpful to clients who are having difficulties with acculturation.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Lodi, CA 95240

If you are thinking about therapy, let me first commend you. I know it can be hard to think about sharing your problems with someone else. But something I have learned by working in this field and from my life is that problems are to be shared. We are all in this together. I try to take a balanced approach in therapy between acceptance and change.
