Welcome to my practice!
I have been counseling & connecting people to resources since 1999.
It is a tremendous joy to use my helping skills and genuine curiosity to support others in times of transition & challenge, and to aid sojourners in their growth.
We are all resilient, strong, and capable beings. And that's the powerful realization I love bringing forth from my clients.
In the work I do, it is important to explore an issue from different angles—mind, body, and spirit—holistically. Besides counseling, my professional background also includes social work, massage therapy, and Chinese acupressure.
Counseling for "Helpers": I'm passionate about supporting people who are themselves "helpers" (family caregivers, teachers, healthcare workers, and those who might feel overburdened as team members.) You are compassionate and you do important work. Becoming more conscious and developing healthier responses & deeper self-care tools will make your work more sustainable, fulfilling, and enjoyable.
EMDR: Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) can help address and resolve underlying traumas which manifest as depression, anxiety and many other symptoms, even physical illness.
EAP: As a long-time worker within various large and small companies and organizations, I am very familiar with the challenges that employees face. I've spent a lot of time helping my co-workers manage personal & organizational changes, and creating happier work environments and life balance. A lot of my clients also use their EAP benefits to work with me on challenges in their personal life.
Sessions with me are held in San Francisco, or virtually (via phone or secure video conference.)
Besides fluent English, I also speak Chinese-Cantonese.
Please feel free to contact me to schedule a free 20-minute phone consultation to see if it is aligned for us to work together.
I look forward to talking with you!
"Between stimulus and response there is a space.
In that space is our power to choose our response.
In our response lies our growth and our freedom."
