About Me

As a licensed clinical psychologist, I am passionate about helping clients work through challenges to gain empowerment and a deeper understanding of themselves.

I am a Bay Area native. Because of my background as a biracial (African American and Chinese American) woman, I have a special interest in working with individuals from multicultural backgrounds. I also identify as a person who stutters. Because of my own multiple identities, I believe in collaborating with clients to gain an understanding of how a person’s cultural background and identity (or identities) factor into their experiences of themselves, others, and the community.

I enjoy working with adolescents, college and graduate students, as I completed my post-doctoral fellowship at Mount St. Mary’s College in Los Angeles and wrote my doctoral dissertation on the relationship between African American father involvement and the academic success of their college-age children. I have worked as an Accessibility Specialist with college and graduate students with disabilities and also worked in public health for five years providing school-based therapy services to middle school students.
