How I Can Help
“Enter into children’s play and you will ﬁnd the place where their minds, hearts, and souls meet” -Virginia Axline.
Adults may use words to communicate; Children use play to communicate and make sense of their worlds. I utilize play therapy in my work with children to nurture a space to express themselves, discover their voice and strength, and process their experiences. My other specializations include helping children and adolescents who struggle with low self-esteem, hopelessness, emotion dysregulation, and communication skills. I utilize various therapeutic modalities, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Solution Focused Brief Therapy, as well as Expressive Arts Therapy-based interventions.
Additionally, as an Asian-American immigrant, I understand the unique experience of immigration: the delicate balance of trying desperately to “fit in” while forming one’s identity between the two cultures and learning the new norms while grasping tightly onto one’s roots. A culturally sensitive approach is a huge part of my therapeutic work.
I am excited and honored to be part of the passionate and client-focused team of mental health professionals at Family Connections Therapy. Therapy is a collaborative process, and it would be an honor for me to walk with you and work with you through your and your family’s needs.
