About

I am a Taiwanese American who grew up in the U.S. and Japan. My personal style is open-minded, warm, and introspective. I have a Master’s degree in Counseling for Mental Health and Wellness from New York University, and dual Bachelor degrees in Psychology and English from North Carolina State University. I have worked at Family First Community Services (NC), CUNY John Jay College (post-graduate training), Good Shepherd Services, FEGS, CUNY Lehman College, St. Joseph's College, and the American Academy of Dramatic Arts. 

I have strong experience working with individuals who have different intersecting identities, such as race, ethnicity, culture, gender, sexual orientation, age, and spirituality/religion. I firmly abide by the American Counseling Association Code of Ethics, and attend on-going training, supervision, and consultation.

  • Depression

  • Anxiety

  • Stress

  • Relationship/Marital issues

  • Family issues

  • Low self-esteem

  • Career changes and uncertainty

  • Academic issues

  • Grief and loss

  • Trauma

  • Gender and sexuality issues

  • Racial/Cultural identity issues

  • Asian American identity issues

  • Life Transitions/Cross-cultural adjustment

  • Oppression/Discrimination
