I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and hold a Master's degree in Counseling Psychology from California State University, Sacramento. Before I entered private practice, I worked for nearly half a decade as a staff clinician at a Roseville counseling agency where I treated a diverse clientele (individuals, couples, families, and groups) with a broad range of presenting issues. During my graduate study, I provided therapy at CSUS Psychological Services Center. Since 2006, I have provided counseling and psychotherapy to self-referred clients from Roseville and nearby areas and clients referred by Placer County Health and Human Services. I have also worked extensively with clients referred by the Placer County judicial system and often serve as collateral member of teams involving social workers, probation/parole officers, mediators, educators, behavioral support workers, and healthcare providers. In addition to providing individual, couples, and family therapy, I am very skilled at facilitating group therapy and have facilitated Parenting, Dual Diagnosis, Domestic Violence, and Drug Treatment groups. I can provide psychoeducation and tools from these contexts in my treatment of individuals, couples, and families whenever it can be helpful.
I am very passionate about my work and what it allows me to do: connect with others and facilitate insight, growth, recovery, and healthier relationships. As a therapist for all my clients, I offer a presence of warmth and unconditional positive regard. My clients appreciate me as a safe, non-judgmental person who offers feedback in a gentle but direct manner. For clients in couples and family therapy, my ability to respect multiple perspectives, foster healthy rapport with each participating member of a treatment unit, and maintain a neutral, unbiased position is consistently acknowledged. I am exceptionally skilled at working with couples, addiction/recovery issues, and clients who are very "skeptical" about counseling. As an Asian-American female, I have strong appreciation for ethnic and cultural factors that influence personal identity and values and have achieved a high level of competency when it comes to relating and working with members from any minority group.
Aside from being a therapist, I am a joyful mother to a wonderful teenage son and try to deal with ever-changing challenges associated with parenting (children who think they are smarter than you...wink, wink) with love, hope, trust, firm boundaries, and open communication. I do realize this is much easier said than done. I cherish times spent with family and friends--while not always feasible due to different lives, work schedules, geographic locations, I always celebrate precious moments spent eating, laughing, and bonding together. I am an avid reader and enjoy power walking a few miles a day to balance my mind, body, and spirit.
