    I am an eclectic therapist who is based on humanistic and Jungian analysis approaches. On top of the base of these two approaches, I like to use various techniques from different approaches, including narrative therapy , DBT, and SFBT. These techniques enable me and my clients to solve issues in a limited time, especially for people who struggle their issues for a long time to see their issues from a different perspective and to come up with new solutions.

    I believe that life is a journey of knowing yourself with no “wrong” path, only experiences that help you grow. Thus, I work with each client to develop an individualized plan that integrates the therapeutic approach most suitable for them. I has helped clients with concerns related to depression, anxiety, stress, trauma, self-esteem, grief and loss, and challenging life transitions.


    My Role / Interpersonal Style in Therapy

    Raised in the collectivistic culture of Taiwan and trained by individualistic culture in the States, I work as a counselor aims to create a safe place for individuals to adapt and thrive in different cultures. I respect all my clients and am patient at every moment. Also I strive to create a counseling relationship on an equal basis.

    I would see myself as a special “tour guide” in therapy; I always share the metaphor of finding treasures in a mountain as counseling sessions. I am the tour guide who will alert my client what difficulties he/ she might encounter, what we need to prepare. However, clients always know better about the way to the treasure than me. I am willing to accompany my clients when the storm of emotions comes, to guide my clients when they are lost. As the tour guide, I am flexible, sometimes with humor, and most importantly, care for all my clients genuinely.

    About Me/My Counseling Philosophy

    I believe that people are influenced by their parents, caretakers, relatives, peers, friends, religions, or educations in their early lives. We create protective systems for surviving and facing the challenges. However, the protective system could become extreme parts when they encounter negative family interaction, interpersonal relationships problems, high working stress, or illness in different life stages. People could also be triggered by challenges or problems that could influence on our stability of emotions and create psychological symptoms. If there were others to accompany them to overcome each difficult stage, it is like a second chance for them. They can heal from the past, sense of internal growth and find different meanings for the difficulties.

    I hope that everyone could be given a chance to improve their lives through psychotherapy or IFS Therapy. When you understand your internal relationship, you will see everything so differently. You will feel the life of enrichment and happiness, and see the hope of possibilities in the future.
