I firmly believe that everyone needs a safe and comfortable space to be fully seen and heard, especially during periods of distress, life changes, and other significant events in our lives. Psychotherapy is the process of exploring our experiences, reflecting on our thoughts and emotions, connecting the past to the present, and developing new insights about ourselves and our development. We will be collaborative in the process where I will attune to your emotions and needs as well as facilitate your self-exploration with my knowledge and experiences. From our childhood experiences, our personality, our environment to our day-to-day stressors, our mental health is influenced by multilayered internal and external factors and they are intertwined. I hope to use integrated theories and practices from psychodynamics, relational therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, client-centered therapy, and multicultural counseling to provide individualized services to my clients.
I am currently pursuing my master’s degree in Counseling for Mental Health and Wellness at New York University. I studied Applied Psychology and graduated with my Bachelor’s of Sciences degree from New York University. Besides teaching and working with young children and teenagers in both New York City and China, I have also participated in research of the impact of parental use of language on early childhood development. I believe that individuals are unique in our development and I am devoted to facilitating each client’s development and wellbeing based on your unique needs and pace. I am also a Mandarin speaker and I can provide psychotherapy in Mandarin, English or in both for bilingual clients..
