Have you ever wondered what really made you feel sad, angry or anxious? I support people to demystify their subconscious desires, truly feel better, and move towards actual changes they want.
It is natural to repeat the vicious cycle until the old wounds can be SEEN and treated. And this is exactly what we will do. While getting closer to your core self and the wounds may be terrifying, it is also an incredibly liberating and rewarding journey.
Together, we will explore your life and feelings at your own pace, get to know your inner conflicting parts, and update the old patterns to meet your new needs.
Areas of Expertise

With an early passion in psychology, I moved from China to the US when I was 17. My experience as an Asian immigrant studying in the U.S. enhanced my understanding of the humanity and struggles in all of us, and working with people from all over the world informed my counseling skills and cultural sensitivity.
Since graduating from Columbia University, I have worked as a community therapist and bilingual school counselor in Queens, NY for over 5 years. From my experience in supporting adolescents and parents in school, I noticed that teen behavioral problems often stem from their family dynamics. Many defiant behaviors are just symptoms of the client's poor relationships with others and the self. Since then, I have focused my work on understanding the underlying wounds that triggered the unhealthy coping strategies. As we understand what drives us to choose, we have the freedom to choose AGAIN. It is the relationship that heals. When we work together, I will provide a safe environment for us to develop trust and alliance. I'm looking forward to witnessing your new freedom.
Here is what to expect when we meet:
A safe and warm working environment.
A compassionate ear to hear your stories and feelings.
My support for you in understanding yourself more deeply and having more choices.
Together discovering concrete tools that you can use to achieve self-actualization.
Finding the right therapist could be an overwhelming process. The best way is to talk to a few of them and see which person matches your energy the most. Trust your instinct!
