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 14 years of experience counseling individuals who have different intersecting identities in 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.
