I strive to create an open and supportive environment for people to reflect on their past and present experiences in order to live more full and vibrant lives.My style of therapy is conducive to people looking for deep change and enhanced self-awareness and insight. This often means working long-term, and sometimes, multiple times a week. I work from an assimilative integrationist approach, which means that while I have a deep grounding in psychodynamic principals, I also draw from other therapeutic approaches, including mindfulness, to best understand each client.
I received my Master’s degree in Social Work from Smith College and in that time held residencies at Duke and Brigham and Women's Hospitals. My cultural background as an Asian-American woman often attracts people interested in working through identity formation within a cross-cultural context. Lastly, my background in music and yoga supports my interest in the here-and-now and embodiment practices.
