Not only it is my pleasure...

...to share with you who I am, I also believe it is essential for my clients to know about my background. This is particularly important if you are shopping for a therapist. You WOULD want to know if I am a good match for you.

Personal Bio

Born and raised in Taiwan, I immigrated to the US along with my family when I was 17. I completed two years of high school in Los Angeles. Currently, I live with my husband of over a decade and two very young daughters. I can speak, read, and write Chinese fluently, and I consider myself a bi-cultural Chinese-American. My favorite past-time activities are spending time with my family, foreign films, international cuisine, and traveling.
