My passion is to help others from all walks of life with their journey of becoming the best person they can be. I believe your journey, your pain, and your collection of struggles are unique to you, and there is no-one size fits all approach to therapy. To know my journey of how I became the individual I am today is like a caterpillar’s transformation to a butterfly.
At the age of six, I was adopted and brought to America from Vietnam I didn’t know the language I didn’t know anything about my new family, the surroundings, or the culture. My adopted home was not a forever home, at age thirteen I was removed and put in a group home then placed in foster care until age of eighteen. Through navigating this journey of life, it has taught me how to let things go, to work towards change,
find your own purpose, no matter what life throws at you, continue to aspire to be the best person you can be.
I have served as a counselor for over 20 years working with all ages, in different settings: School-based therapy, residential counselor, correctional institutional clinician, inpatient and outpatient services, and experienced with different areas of interest: trauma, grief work, social skills, teen pregnancy, sexual offenders, anxiety disorders, substance abuse, family issues and more.
My approach to change is a collective approach, using therapeutic techniques assisting and encouraging my clients to work towards personal growth, regaining a strong sense of self, and overcoming the challenges of finding your individuality.
