About Me

I'm a queer, first-generation, BIPOC (Asian American) therapist based in New York City. I offer a highly personalized approach that centers on your strengths and unique experiences. I deeply value the connection that develops in therapy, and I offer warmth, empathy, and collaboration where your whole self is welcome and celebrated. I am passionate about empowering folks to reconnect with themselves and their values. Many of my clients find themselves stuck in patterns of thinking and acting that they know don’t serve them, though they have difficulty changing. My areas of expertise include anxiety, grief, identity, relationships (including ethical non-monogamy/polyamory), trauma recovery, and more. My style is holistic, and goal-oriented. I draw from various evidenced-based modalities as I see fit, often going outside the box of what is seen in your typical therapy sessions. I incorporate your body, explore nonverbal cues, and get creative depending on your needs.
