I provides psychotherapy services to children, adolescents, and adults from diverse cultural and socioeconomic background. I am bilingual and bicultural in English and Chinese, with fluency in Cantonese and proficiency in Mandarin. With over 18 years working in various mental health treatment programs, my clinical expertise includes psychological trauma, grief and loss, depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). I am also skilled in treating clients who struggle with life transitions, identity, acculturation, relationships, parenting, caregiver-related stress, and women’s issues such as infertility and postpartum depression.
In my practice, I integrate traditional talk therapy with evidence-based treatments such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and mindfulness-based therapy for depression and anxiety, as well as Prolonged Exposure, Cognitive Processing Therapy, Trauma-Focused CBT, Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy, and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) for trauma. With children, I also use art and play therapy to help them express their feelings, process their experiences, and practice skills to reduce their distress.
Generally, my treatment approach is relational and strength-based. I am a strong believer that a collaborative and trusting relationship is a prerequisite for meaningful therapy. I support clients in recognizing and strengthening their internal resources, resilience, and their sense of hope. As a psychologist, my goal is to help my clients become their best therapists by guiding them to strength their confidence and increase their capability in managing your stressors.
