My Passion   

While being married can be a lovely and beautiful experience, it can also be tough and challenging. My passion is to work with couples and families to renew, repair, and rebuild relationships that can be satisfying and lasting. My desire is to help struggling and hurting couples and families understand the underlying issues and patterns that hinder them from thriving. I enjoy working with couples in all stages for holistic healing, healthier communication, conflict management, and better coping with stress and grief/loss.

My Story

I grew up in a family and culture that does not encourage seeking help from others because it is perceived as a sign of weakness. However, seeking help at the right time is actually a strength because pain and mistakes can be avoided. Before becoming a marriage and family therapist, I worked as an occupational therapist and found myself being drawn to helping people recover from their pain or trauma. My gift for my counseling clients now is to share not only my knowledge and skill but also my experience in the ups and downs of marriage and life.

My Strength

Being married for more than 20 years and a mother of two young adult children and a teenager, I understand the unhealthy cycle in marriage as well as the emotional struggles in parenting. I am experienced in working with cross-cultural marriages, neurodiverse couples, couples with adjustment issues, depression, anxiety, addiction, anger issues, and affair recovery. Helping families move to healthier relationships is what I profoundly care.

In addition to couples and families, I have extensively worked with children, adolescents, and young adults from all walks of life and diverse cultural backgrounds; helping them find their voices, passions, dreams, and purposes in life. With my life experience, healthcare background, and professional training, I am good at facilitating a process that stirs positive life change.

​​Areas of Practice:  couples & family relationships, pre-marital, parent-child conflict, anxiety with somatic symptoms, loneliness, depression, trauma, grief/loss, communication/social skills, anger management, self-image, self-identity, burnout, life transitions, midlife crisis, codependency, cultural issues, women issues, postpartum, spiritual formation.                 

Types of Client:  couples, adults, children, adolescents, professionals, healthcare workers, business executives, church leaders


Therapeutic Approach

For couples therapy, I do not take side but offer a therapeutic process for my clients to rekindle their love and reflect on the deeper issues that affect the marital relationship and the family dynamics. In addition to emotion-focused couples therapy, I also utilize various psychotherapeutic approaches such as family systems, somatic therapy, solution-focused, trauma-informed, and neuro-psychological theories. I consistently offer a safe, supportive, and therapeutic connection with each individual/family.  Because of my bi-cultural background, I am able to embrace each individual's story and strengths and tailor interventions to the needs of each of my clients.
