I am a bilingual Vietnamese and English-speaking Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with experience working with clients diagnosed with co-occurring disorders. I utilize an integrative therapeutic approach that focuses on cultural-sensitivity and goals of meeting clients where they are at to best facilitate change. I completed my Masters in Counseling from Santa Clara University. Over the last 10 years, my experience includes providing psychotherapy to children, adolescents and adults from diverse backgrounds and diverse mental health needs. In addition, my experience includes teaching English in Japan, being an ABA therapist, working with children and adolescents in the foster care system, and working with adults in the criminal justice system.
I am trained in Brain-spotting and currently working towards certification. Brain-spotting is a trauma therapy that allows you to reprocess your trauma(s) so that you can be free from negative beliefs, physiological distress and psychological pain as quickly as possible by identifying, processing, and releasing core neurophysiological sources of emotional and physical pain, and unhealthy coping mechanisms associated with trauma.
