About

Aloha, welcome to the islands, a relaxed space of support, but also laughter, music, and year-round flip-flops! Here, we honor diversity and welcome any person in the community to come in and do some good work on your mind, your spirit, soul, brain, psyche, etc... I have a passion for the mind-body connection and I use lots of bilateral stimulation to help individuals process stress and emotion that may be burdening throughout the busy week. The hope is always to feel enlightened and empowered!

I was born and raised here in the South Bay area within SoCAL, my parents immigrated to California and are of Pacific Islander and Asian origins. Being raised in CA has helped me to understand and relate well to many people in our community, no matter which background you come from. I enjoy playing music, culture, history, and adventures.

I currently specialize in EMDR, but began as a clinician working in career counseling, trauma-related war populations, immigrating families, and then serving our K-12 school system. I also enjoy working with people that have (or might have) ADHD/ADD, it's always a difficult task to try and navigate how the brain's executive functioning might be affected by combinations of trauma, mood disruptions, inattention, hyperactive mind, hyperactive body, and/or dissociation.
