Do anxiety, trauma and insecurity run your life more than your values and dreams? Do you relive the past as if it were happening right now? Your head knows better, but it fails to convince your heart otherwise. As horrible as those experiences were for the past, they continue to zap away your joy and confidence today, and you might be unsure if you could pursue your dreams in the future. Do others believe in your competence more than you believe in yourself? What would it be like if life was driven by passion and not fear or shame? Or are you a couple that loves each other but still gets frustrated with communication issues?
As a Certified Brainspotting Therapist, I help clients heal from trauma and PTSD, anxiety disorders (GAD, Phobia, Panic, OCD, Social Anxiety, etc), life-transitions, boundaries, accepting emotions, inter-generational cross-cultural issues, grieving divorce or infertility, depression, couples communication, and premarital counseling.
I enjoy helping adults, adolescents and couples that still want to work things out, providing a safe place for you to find clarity, seek healing, empowerment, restore inner peace, and make meaning out of the ups and downs of life. See and be your authentic self and live out your deepest values! Call me for a free 15 minute consultation today!
Besides English, I speak fluent Cantonese and Mandarin. Growing up in two cultures, I respect and welcome diversity. Besides Brainspotting, I received extra training in Anxiety Disorders, Gottman Couples methods, Prepared and Enrich Premarital Counseling, play therapy interventions, and couples communication.
