I am a clinical psychologist licensed with the Board of Psychology in California. I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of California, Los Angeles, and received both my Master of Arts and Doctor of Psychology in Clinical Psychology from the California School of Professional Psychology at Alliant International University, Los Angeles. I have clinical experience providing individual, couples, collateral, family, and group psychotherapy to children, adolescents, adults, and seniors in private practice, inpatient and outpatient psychiatric hospital, elementary to high schools, and community mental health clinics. I have treated and worked with issues related to depression, anxiety, psychosis, substance use and dual diagnosis, grief and loss, trauma and abuse, adjustment and other life transitions, and various identity crises. I have also been an adjunct faculty member teaching master’s level psychology courses and am currently in a management position in part providing administrative and clinical supervision to pre- and post-doctoral mental health professionals at a community mental health agency. I am a bilingual therapist fluent in spoken Chinese Cantonese and a limited understanding in spoken Chinese Mandarin. I am a culturally-competent clinician who enjoys working with clients from various cultural, ethnic, or religious backgrounds or sexual orientations. My style and approach to therapy is a collaborative process to explore and enhance your strengths and areas of improvements, fulfill unmet needs, and overcome barriers to higher functioning in order to maximize your potential. We will work together to create short- and long- term treatment goals specific to your needs, recognize emotional and behavioral triggers, improve family and social relationships, and practice more appropriate and healthy coping, communication, anger management, social, problem-solving, and other skills to reduce symptoms. To understand you and help with your journey, I look at both the past and the present, and while my primary theoretical orientations are psychodynamic and cognitive-behavioral, I integrate therapeutic interventions from various theoretical approaches and evidence-based practices to individualize treatment. I am currently based out of the new Claremont location, and I look forward to hearing from you. I can be reached at (909) 296-7328.
