“Health is a state of body. Wellness is a state of being.”

– J. Stanford

I have been in the healthcare field for over 10 years in many other roles outside of a psychotherapist.  I knew as a young child that helping others was my calling.  I was blessed to be able to complete my studies as a social worker and build myself into the clinician I am today.  I have experience as a medical social worker dealing with grief and life transitions tied to health issues.   Also, I have experience as a psychotherapist working with young adults and adults with mood disorders, boundaries, communication, trauma, and positive steps to a better quality of life.

I believe in using an eclectic style of therapy, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT), Solution-Focused, Strength-Based, Narrative, and Music Therapy, to provide the unique tools in your journey of healing.

As a first-generation Vietnamese American, I have a passion for helping other Asian young adults and adults that struggle with mental health and navigate through life challenges.  I am passionate about cultural competence and understanding the background and challenges that BIPOC faces, such as the stigma of getting professional help for mental illness.  Self-determination and self-empowerment are my approaches for my clients to reach their life goals. Regardless of the challenges, I believe that if you have the power and will to overcome and are ready to take the next steps towards healing, you can absolutely turn your life around into the healthy life you deserve. 

I would like to congratulate you for taking the courage and step to move forward and begin your journey on your health and wellness.
