Are you ever curious about why you do things the way you do? Or how do you end up at the same place again and again?
Through experience and my training, I have learned the importance of the connection that we have to others and how it impacts the healing of us an individual. Being an adult immigrant has provided me with a unique understanding of the ways in which social position, religion, personality, culture, and past experiences uniquely impacts our lives. By extension, I have always actively strived to incorporate a multicultural perspective in my case conceptualization and treatment planning process. Over the years my definition of culture has become more inclusive, representing not only differences in race, ethnic identity, and socioeconomic status, but also differences in age, gender, religious affiliation, sexual identity, size, and disability status.
My job as a doctoral level therapist is to create a therapeutic environment which is culturally affirming and responsive. My practice is a space where BIPOC/AAPI and Queer individuals can explore the myriad of identities that may feel at odds with one another. As an inclusive therapist I believe that people with all identities and abilities in all bodies deserve equal access to quality mental health care.
