I am a Harvard-trained psychologist with over 25 years of experience working with individuals, couples, and families affected by depression, anxiety, trauma, loss, and life’s challenges. My treatment approach is collaborative, interactive, holistic (examining all factors that affect your functioning), and strength-based (identifying your strengths). I focus on symptom reduction and skills-building to optimize your quality of life. I will work with you to tailor a treatment plan that meets your specific needs and goals. I am bilingual in Vietnamese. My office is located in Midtown in Sacramento. I also provide treatment virtually for clients who live anywhere within California.
My treatment modalities include Cognitive Behavioral, EMDR, Mindfulness-Based, Psychodynamic, and Family Therapy. I have experience working with clients from diverse ethnicities, ages, religions, and gender/sexual identities. I also have expertise working with clients dealing with issues of life transitions, trauma (survivors of war & abuse), acculturation, immigration, cross-cultural relationships, and discrimination/hate.
As a Vietnamese refugee and a survivor of sexual abuse, I’m passionate about helping and empowering survivors of various traumas to heal, speak their truths, and live deeply meaningful and authentic lives. I also work with organizations, communities, and systems to combat abuse and promote race and social justice.
