Language: English and Mandarin Chinese

My Story

Born and raised in Taiwan and having lived in 3 continents, I identify as a third culture individual, someone who is constantly in the “in-between” space of different cultures and communities. I believe that every individual has experienced this “in-between” in various ways and at different seasons in their lives and that the need for belonging and understanding is universal.

I am multilingual in English, Mandarin Chinese, and Taiwanese Hokkien. I had experiences working with children, youth, young and older adults as well as working with couples and groups. Many of my clients have experienced loneliness, live in-between cultures, or hold marginalized
identities. My areas of interests include multicultural identity development, cross-cultural adaptation & transition, interracial/interethnic relationships, family & relationships issues, trauma, perfectionism, stress management, suicide & crisis, anxiety & depression.

I view therapy as a crucial journey to healing, appreciating growth through discomfort, and finding beauty in the pain and growth. I use existential theories to help you find your purpose and meaning. I believe you are the expert of your own life and I’m a witness to your journey. My goal is to support you in cultivating resilience, courage and authenticity. I use multicultural and strength-based approaches that allow conceptualization from a holistic lens and consider contextual and systemic factors rather than focusing on mental dysfunction or pathology. I value and believe in the power of strong therapeutic relationships and will meet you where you are to support your growth and narratives.
