My name is Lily. It is my privilege to be a co-journeyer with you in therapy.

Therapy for Depression & Anxiety

There are many seasons in life. Some are good and easy, while others are more challenging and difficult. In difficult seasons, you can feel anxious, stressed,  overwhelmed, depressed, or in general, just not like yourself. Life can seem hopeless and you can feel powerless and exhausted just getting through the day. You’re not quite sure how to get out and feel like you’re drowning. If you’re experiencing this right now, know that you are not alone and that this isn’t the end of your journey.  

Let’s talk about it. I will walk with you through these hard feelings. 

Therapy for Relational, Marital & Family Conflict

As humans, we are made for relationships. That is why relational conflicts can feel so painful, debilitating, and overwhelming. Whether you are struggling with friends, with your partner, or with your family, I can work with you to identify ways to move forward when you feel stuck towards a greater connection. 

I can hold a space for you and your partner to explore together the intricate nuances of becoming “us” in marriage. Trained as a Marriage and Family Therapist with a Restoration Therapy certification (level 2) as well as the Gottman Method Couples Therapy (level 2), I can work with you to identify your relational pain points and help you develop healthier relational patterns to find more helpful paths forward.

Therapy for Creatives, Highly Sensitive Person (HSP) & Empaths

As a fellow sensitive soul & creative myself, I can understand that you often feel “big” feelings and are much more sensitive to the beauty and iniquities of the world around you. As you carry the weight of the world on your shoulders, it can feel overwhelming, stressful, and cause you to lose motivation for creative work. Let’s work together to overcome creative blocks, nurture your creative child, learn self-compassion, befriend your inner critic, and gracefully grow beyond rejections. 

Therapy for Immigrants, TCKs, Child of Immigrants, & Asian Americans

You live in two (or multiple) cultures—sometimes it gets exhausting and stressful to manage the expectations of both, especially when they clash. Where do you really fit in? Whether you identify as 1st, 2nd, 3rd+ generation, or anywhere in between, the immigration history of our families can shape our present experiences in America. Growing up and living between the cultures as an Asian American woman and a child of immigrants, I understand the many struggles of acculturation, code-switching, identity, and living a dual life when it comes to navigating spaces, family dynamics, and trying to find belonging.

I will sit with you to process your own family’s history and context to explore how you can feel more empowered in your unique identity.    

Therapy for Individuals who want to Integrate Christian Faith & Spirituality

If you are desiring and looking for a place to safely explore and discuss questions related to your faith & spirituality, or would like to integrate your faith in your therapy process, I am here to go on that journey with you. As a therapist of Christian faith, I can help you incorporate the role of God, scripture, and prayer in our work together as you desire.

Therapy with Me

The most important aspect of therapy with me is that you feel seen, heard, respected,  supported, and safe in our sessions. The world gives you enough reasons to feel otherwise, and I commit to creating a space where you can come and be authentically yourself.  

My approach is strengths-based and empowerment-focused. I see myself as a  facilitator and coach of your healing and growth. I am driven by curiosity, clinical intuition, and utilize a variety of techniques informed by my education and training in sessions to harness your gifts and promote your prospering.  

Although every client is unique and requires a different approach, I work primarily from a client-centered, experiential, somatic, and mindfulness orientation. With children, I  utilize creative approaches such as play therapy. I am also a certified 200-hr yoga instructor and like to guide my clients toward greater awareness of the mind-body connection.  

Therapy is an investment in your future. Wherever you are today, there is always hope for a better tomorrow! I would be honored to journey with you towards your desired life goals. If you feel we might be a good fit for working together, please reach out! I am so excited to meet you soon!
