  • Power, privilege, and identity. These topics are the focus of our society today. Amidst everything going on in the world there is a need to explore our relationship to the topics that effect us everyday.

    Growing up in California as a Jewish Taiwanese athlete, I learned to love the outdoors, cooking, music, and movies. I’ve chosen to work in mental wellness in a holistic way. That is a client subjective, humanistic, and compassion approach.

    Society and other systems push for a “norm” or normative way of being, but this is limiting to the human experience. I invite the complex individual into my therapy. By accepting ourselves and others as complex individuals we can hold a greater capacity for compassion to ourselves and others.
