"The curious paradox is that when I accept myself as I am, then I change." 

- Carl Rogers

"There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you."

-Maya Angelou

  • Are you someone who wants to feel more connected with yourself and be more genuine in your relationships? 

  • Are you going through a difficult time, having a hard time coping with feelings of depression, anxiety, and loneliness, and feel like you are lost or no one understands you?

  • Are you an international student longing for academic success yet struggling with language barrier, cultural and academic adjustment?

  • Are you an immigrant or person of color experiencing acculturation stress, racial identity development issues, or hurting because of micro-aggression, racism, and systemic oppression?

  • Are you feeling stuck in an unhealthy relationship, recovering from a relational trauma, or torn by family/inter-generational conflict?

  • Are you a mom struggling with anxiety, overwhelming sadness, or sense of isolation during pregnancy or postpartum?

Healing starts from telling your stories. I'm here for you, hearing you, feeling for you, exploring with you, speaking up for you.

Identity and Self-Care

I am a married Chinese woman in my mid-30s. I am a mother of a lovely toddler boy and a 6 year old Chiweenie dog (my fur baby). I grew up in China and came to the US for my graduate studies. I have always had a curiosity in understanding human experience (emotional experience, cognition, and behaviors), and I am fascinated by people’s resilience in the face of adversity.

I enjoy spending time with family, connecting with friends, and having "me" time. My favorite self-care activities are journaling, hiking, reading, traveling, going to the movies, taking a hot bath, dancing,  and running with music.
