What makes me unique:
I am a second generation immigrant; my family is from Vietnam. I am the first in my family to achieve my Doctorate. I am proud of my heritage and culture. I bring in the therapy room my unique experiences of being a daughter of refugee/immigrant parents and a wife/mother of an interracial union. I appreciate the unique stories that clients bring into the room, their strengths, resiliency, areas of growth, and experiences of trauma. I believe in the healing of one another, through truly witnessing and sharing experiences.
Why do I practice healthcare:
As a MFT, I believe in a systems approach. This can mean teaching a patient the importance of being healthy—physically, mentally, and emotionally. This can also mean addressing family (marital) systems, community systems, and governmental systems that are embedded in a patient’s life. This is a unique time to be working as a therapist, as we are living in a global pandemic, where this is a shared experience of anxiety, depression, and isolation. I hope as a therapist I bring forth hope, healing, and connection to those in need.
