I am a licensed mental health counselor (LMHC) practicing in Rhode Island. I earned my masters degree from Boston College and my bachelors degree from Hampshire College in Massachusetts. I have experience working in education, non-profit, and outpatient settings, and my first career path was in high school education. I work with adolescents and adults, with a commitment to providing inclusive therapy services for LGBTQIA+ and BIPOC folks.
My work is informed by the research and writings of Ramani Durvasula, Laura S. Brown, Irvin Yalom, and Brené Brown. My social justice framework is informed by the teachings of Maya Angelou, Sonya Renee Taylor, bell hooks, and Grace Lee Boggs.
I am an alum of the American Psychological Association Minority Fellowship Program (MFP). I served as a planning committee member for the Community, Access, Recruitment, & Engagement (CARE) Research Center at the Massachusetts General Hospital on a community-based mental health initiative in 2021. I am a member of the national Asian American Psychological Association (AAPA).
“Rarely, if ever, are any of us healed in isolation.
Healing is an act of communion.”
