About Me

I provide liberation-oriented mental health care as a millennial therapist, a first generation American, and child of Cambodian immigrants and refugees. I help over-thinkers overcome self-doubt and negative self-talk to start prioritizing their own needs and desires to reconnect with their intuition and 'Self'. As an inclusive therapist striving to decolonize mental health care and healing, I incorporate an ethical framework of psychotherapy, spiritual and healing of the mind, community, body, and spirit. I am independently licensed to practice therapy in Massachusetts, Guam, and Hawaii.

Education & Experience

I earned my Master of Social Work degree from Boston College after serving seven years in the military. During my social work career, I worked in various settings supporting diverse communities practicing from an anti-oppressive and social justice- oriented approach where I acknowledge how systemic racism and prejudices affect mental and physical health. I am S.A.F.E. EMDR-trained through Personal Transformation Institute. Additionally, I have experience working with individual and intergenerational trauma while holding space for all to heal at their own pace.
