Values & Philosophy

We are all remembering to remember stories about ourselves. My focus as a therapist is to center your identity and experience as we work together to grow and find joy together. I am here to support you. Whether that’s working on building an internalized sense of self-worth, developing boundaries, deepening your relationships with yourself or others, exploring your identity, or getting in touch with your emotions, I am here to hold space and reveal what is most important to you.

My theoretical approach to therapy is grounded in trauma-informed practices, meaning what each person needs during sessions will be different. I am guided by curiosity, transparency, connection, and care. It will be an honor to listen to your stories and together learn about your needs, values, and possible changes you want to make for yourself.

As a queer, neurodivergent, transmasculine, Chinese-adoptee, my practice is grounded in queer, intersectionality, liberation, and abolitionist theories. It is extremely important to recognize that we live within systems built to harm us in different ways based on our identities, and so it’s important to understand your story and how these systems have shaped who you are. Through this process I see therapy as a way to honor who we are, heal ourselves, and our community.
