Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
You just made the first step to start the journey of overcoming the barriers that prevent you from living a healthy, productive and fulfilling life. My goal is to help you identify irrational thoughts/beliefs, problematic behaviors, and negative feelings (anger, frustration, shame, disappointment, etc.) that paralyze you from moving beyond the past hurts and hang ups. My hope is to empower you to accept the things you cannot change, have the courage to change the things you can, and obtain the wisdom to know the difference in a safe and nurturing environment.

I provide counseling in English, Mandarin and Taiwanese. I am passionate in Christian counseling, individual therapy, couple therapy, play therapy, family therapy, and group therapy. The target areas of my practice include, but not limit to, Christian based counseling, acculturation issues, interracial couples, pre-marital and marital counseling, parenting, codependency, addiction, anxiety, ADHD, chronically mentally ill, and life transitions.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Irvine, CA

I know it can be scary to reach out for help, especially in a culture that tells us we should be able to solve our problems on our own and, if we can’t, there is something wrong with us. Well, I’m here to challenge that culture that values independence more than interdependence, because as humans we are designed to be connected with others in relationships. And sometimes the first relationship that needs our focused attention is the one we have with ourselves in order to ‘show up’ in our relationships with others.
