about me

Life is full of ups and downs; a colorful palette of emotions in joy, shame, distress, fear, anger, love, disappointment, and sadness.

I enjoy being a part of this journey and helping others overcome obstacles that "get in the way" of improving health, enriching relationships, and building confidence to reach goals. 

Dazzle in Courage | Therapy

In 2008, I began my private practice, fueled by my passion for healing work and taking part in transforming lives.  I am energized in helping clients find the small and big "wins" during their therapeutic journey.  Braving the uncertainty of what therapy might be and feel like, 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.  Therapeutic modalities I incorporate with my clients include Trauma Informed Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Positive Psychology, Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy, Multicultural Therapy, Strengths-Based Therapy and Systems Theory.  My practice is dedicated to improving the lives of Teen Girls, Women and BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, or People of Color).  As an Asian therapist, I welcome the opportunity to discuss how oppression and racism impact our mental health and wellbeing.   

Sparkle in Hope | Coaching

I love helping people work towards the vision of their future self through goal-setting using specific tools and strategies.  As your accountability partner, we can work on goals and results focused on optimizing your potential by identifying blind spots, skill gaps, and obstacles.

Dance in Creativity | Consultation

With over 25 years of experience working in non-profits as a servant leader, I have gained valuable experience and expertise in program development, leadership, and creating a team culture that encourages and values growth, flexibility, relationships and results.  Workplace conflict, social services program start-up, managing teams, managing people, team building and business support groups are areas I can help your programs thrive.  I offer workshops and training on a variety of topics including:

  • Trauma Informed Care

  • Compassion Fatigue and Burn-Out

  • Embrace Race

  • Cultural Competency

  • Mental Health 

  • Positive Psychology

Trainings can be created for your Organizational needs or desired topic, just ask!

Lean into the Journey | Clinical Supervision

I love group work and providing clinical supervision for those working towards licensure in Oregon.  Working with therapists of color, my goal is to provide an inclusive space to discuss race-based stress and trauma which impacts personally and professionally.  I use the Discrimination Model for supervision that is focused on Performance skills, Cognitive counseling skills, Self-awareness, and Professional behaviors.
