Hi, I'm Kim

Born and raised in Portland, Oregon, I grew up navigating the complexities of the world as a Chinese-American woman.  For the past 26 years, I have worked in the non-profit world serving underserved youth and families.  I channeled my passion every day to improve the outcomes for youth and their families in education, employment, mental health, racial equity, and justice involvement.


Since 2008, I have provided psychotherapy for adolescents, adults and families. 

My Why?

I do this work because I believe that we are all searching for connection, to be seen, and to be heard.  

I am inspired by the opportunity to help you take the risk of opening your world,  living in the present, and seeing the possibilities for your future.
