My Approach

I received my master's degree in counseling in 2020 from Townsend Institute at Concordia University in Irvine, CA and passed the National Counseling Exam in 2021. I am currently an associate licensed mental health counselor, accruing hours toward licensure. I studied under Dr. John Townsend, the author of the Boundaries series and trained to support character growth to meet life’s demands. When truth, grace, time, and relational nutrients are provided, individuals are able to find healing and growth and to optimize their intrapersonal and interpersonal relationships and become more productive in their work. In addition, I incorporate client-centered and eclectic styles into psychodynamic approach. 
For clinical training, I interned at Asian Counseling Referral services and Sound Mental Health where I counselled children and adolescents. I spent a year in a start-up private practice and provided therapy for children, adolescents, young adults, and retired couples. I was a para-educator at BSD for four years before graduate school. I also volunteer at a local church, from teaching Sunday school to providing spiritual support for the members of the church.
