I am a Bay Area licensed clinical psychologist with over 10 years of experience in the mental health field. My practice focuses on improving one’s quality of life by addressing the things that get in the way of it like depression, anxiety, or stress.
As a Chinese-American female psychologist, I am passionate about addressing the mental health struggles of underrepresented communities. I have dedicated training and experience adapting and individualizing evidence-based treatments for these communities so that they can have similar opportunities to access and participate in the journey of healing.
In addition to my practice, I am a clinical psychologist at the inpatient psychiatric units at Stanford Health Care and an Assistant Clinical Professor (Affiliated) at Stanford University School of Medicine where I provide individual and group psychotherapy for people struggling with mood problems and psychosis as well as training the next generation of healthcare providers. Previously, I worked as an assistant professor at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine where I taught courses and seminars related to the treatment of severe mental illness and diversity to doctoral level psychology students and medical students, supervised predoctoral psychology interns at an APA-accredited program, and developed an interpersonal education (IPE) program between medical and doctoral psychology students to provide preventative care for women residing at homeless shelters.
