Approach to Therapy:
Within broad humanistic and multicultural perspectives, my approach of working with clients is typically influenced by the integrative concepts of existential philosophy, constructivism, and emotion focused therapy. I believe that people can build their own strengths to make positive changes for themselves, and I work collaboratively with clients to identify coping strategies as well as to develop skills that are adaptable to each client’s needs. I am bilingual and can provide therapy in Mandarin and English.
Approach to Wellness:
As I work diligently with clients in engaging in self-care, I strive for maintaining a work-life balance by focusing on my own self-care as well. The activities that I enjoy outside of work are: spending time with family and friends, embracing nature, practicing mindfulness, cooking and fine food dining, watching movies and dramas, and playing guitar and kalimba to de-stress as well as express my emotions.
