Registered Associate Marriage and Family Therapist # 124877

About Myself

I was born in Vietnam and raised in San Diego, CA.  Growing up, I experienced different cultures and recognize the importance of diversity and relationships.  We all want to feel secured, connected, and validated in our relationships. These feelings can be threatened when we are not able to reach our loved ones, physically or emotionally. Fostering self-care and developing the skills to communicate and express ourselves facilitate navigating our relationships.
