Whatever it is that brings you to therapy, I stand by the commitment, “I’m here with you.” I believe that each of our stories are equally sacred as they are unique and see therapy as the daring and vulnerable act of authentically showing up. I work to create a collaborative and open relationship with my clients, so that they may find safety, comfort, and space to explore traumas of the past, roadblocks of the present, and new possibilities for the future.
Although there may be very specific reasons for taking the leap into therapy, I believe curiosity alone can be reason enough to initiate the process towards deeper living!
I have had the privilege of working with individuals seeking support for recovery from substance use and addictive behaviors, histories of trauma, family and relationship concerns, mood disorders, and military/civilian life transitions.
I like to incorporate mind/body connection in my practice, as I believe our bodies are our richest resource, and utilizes techniques rooted in Mindfulness, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Gestalt Therapy, and Somatic Psychotherapy. I earned a B.A. in Psychology from Skidmore College and graduated with a Master’s in Mental Health Counseling from CUNY Hunter College.
I grew up in the green mountains of Vermont as the youngest daughter in a Chinese and Italian household. I’ve lived and taught in Northern China, motorbiked 1,000 miles through Vietnam, backpacked through New Zealand’s South Island, and have called New York City my home since 2013. When not in the office, you’ll find me strolling through Prospect Park, on the shores of the Rockaway's, or planning my next motorbike trip through Asia.
