I am Vietnamese bilingual psychotherapist who would like to bring therapy to people who feel therapy is only accessible to just the few.
I have been a post-licensed therapist for more than 17 years. I am particularly passionate about offering services to people experiencing marginalization.
I have been trained in psychodynamic approaches, objects-relations theory, cognitive behavioral therapy approaches and use mindfulness as an integral part of of work with clients. I have a Masters in Clinical Psychology from San Francisco State University and a Bachelor in General Psychology from University of California, Irvine. I have worked as a direct service clinician, manager, Clinical Supervisor, and overseeing contracts for mental health provider agencies.
I have dedicatedly career to empower and enhance the voice and strength of the culturally, ethnically and linguistically diverse communities. I believe that we as mental health providers cannot neglect the intersectional impacts on mental health. I am interested in exploring and introducing the inherent powers of cultures to heal the individual, families and communities.
I am a passionate and empathetic therapist with strong counseling abilities and an understanding of interpersonal familial relationships. I have experience leading clients through painful experiences of trauma and grief resulting from interpersonal and other violence as a result of inequities and racial distress. Through clinical experience, compassion, and empathy I support and assist those willing to make a positive difference in their lives.
I pride myself in providing a safe and supportive space, to work side by side to overcome traumas, and barriers. I specialize in addressing healing despite external adversities, mental and physical conditions using internal and cultural strengths. I am a strength-based, culture-focused, humanistic therapist who is deeply passionate and curious about the journeys of each client seeking personal growth from their experiences.
I am fully committed to listen and offer my best professional practices to help you. I use humor and compassion to provide some reprieve from personal pain and offer honesty to dispel personal inaccurate myths. You can count on my empathetic and person-centered approach towards every conversation we take part on.
Thank you for taking the first step and for allowing me to be part of this very important journey.
Look forward to meeting you!
