Co-Founder and Licensed Psychologist, PSY32480
Working with Clients Since 2013


You are kind, helpful, and sensitive. You give selflessly as a hardworking daughter, sister, mom, and/or employee. And, you’re exhausted. It is normal to feel frustrated, overwhelmed, and burnt out when you give and give. 

As women, society and culture has taught you to prioritize the needs of others before your own. You carry so many expectations related to family, career, and relationships. While you are great at caring for others, your own self-care and boundaries are missing. You are worthy of self-compassion, to feel nourished, and to have a meaningful life you enjoy.

As an Asian American woman, former people pleaser, and highly sensitive person, I hear and understand you. Reaching out for therapy is important because we cannot pour from an empty cup. I am committed to your wellness journey, so you can live a more sustainable life that honors you. If you are interested in working with a genuine and compassionate person, you will enjoy working with me!
