    Anti-oppressive & Intersectional – we recognize intersecting visible and invisible identities and the harmful cumulative impact of systemic oppression, -phobias, and -isms in our lives.

    Eclectic – we believe in a relational and client-empowered therapeutic relationship and we use various modalities to personalize and maintain a client-centered process.

    Holistic – we believe in the wholeness of being and embrace an integrated approach to our therapeutic and coaching practices.

    Accessible – our telehealth services and range of rates seeks to support clients regardless of location with New York State and across varying financial circumstances.

    作为一名非二元性别者,我投入了大量心力去弄明白“我是谁”,因此,我会像重视自己的身份一样珍重“你是谁”,包括但不限于性别认同、性取向/浪漫取向、种族/民族,以及不同身份碰撞出的独特处境。 作为边缘群体的一员,我目睹了性少数被原本应提供给ta们支持和保护的人伤害,比如家人和咨询师。大量的咨询师站在权威的位置上,以异性恋本位的态度给性少数来访者造成了二次伤害,使得这些边缘群体更难以信任心理咨询师,从而更不愿意寻求ta们所需的帮助。因此,我想成为一名具有文化敏感度的心理咨询师。 我在华盛顿大学获得心理学学士学位,目前正在纽约大学攻读心理健康咨询专业,师从Sunanda Jalote。我曾在中国的两家LGBTQ+非营利组织工作,支持性别非二元者、女同性恋、双性恋女性及跨性别者。在工作中,我处理过身份探索、人际关系、社会孤立、自尊以及出柜等多种议题。 我认为我们许多的问题是对系统性不平等和社会结构的正常反应(所谓的“政治性抑郁”)。因此,我在实践中采用社会正义与女权主义的方法,不只专注个人层面的问题,也讨论世界上正在发生、并对我们造成影响的事情。受到那些为进步铺路的运动家的启发,我鼓励我的来访者参与社会运动,为弱势群体发声,以重拾ta们的主体性。在应对无力感的路上,你不是一个人。我们可以共同应对这些挑战,相互赋能,实现有意义的变革。 我相信人类天生就有自我实现的渴望与潜能;然而,资本主义的压力和萦绕不散的创伤阻碍了我们的发展。为了帮助来访超越这些障碍,我专注于来访者的优势,并融入存在主义的哲学。事实上,人们承受的许多痛苦并非精神疾病的表现,而是在遭遇存在危机时发出的叩问——“我是谁?”“在无意义的荒原中,我的存在有什么意义?”“我该如何无意义的阴翳下生活?”对这些问题感到痛苦,恰恰证明了我们作为人类的力量,也是个人成长的机会。我会根据来访者的需求去定制适合ta们的行为疗法:通过行动创造意义,变成更自由的存在。 最后,我希望超越当下的时空,与来访者内在的容易受伤的小孩建立联结。我知道你在过去遭受了痛苦,因此我希望为你提供一个安全的、免于恐惧的空间。我们可以一起探索你的经历,创造新的、治愈的时刻。:) 如果你觉得我是一个适合你的咨询师,请联系我。不必有压力,我们可以一起梳理你的问题。

    Work with Me

    Supervision has been one of the most helpful ways of learning and growing as a therapist for me. It helped (and still does) in learning how to navigate this complicated field. Good supervisors can make all the difference; not just in helping clients, but also in reducing therapist burnout and fostering sustainability in this field, […]
