Philosophy

I enjoy working with different people and offer guidance to individuals, couples, families and groups who are dealing with issues that affect their mental health and well-being. I like to establish a safe, supportive, healthy environment to help clients work through their hurts, pains and struggles in life. I value the integration of body, mind and spirit and the dignity and worth of each person.

Originally from Hong Kong, I earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Mechanical Engineer in Taiwan before coming to study in the United States, earning a Doctor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Washington University. After a career as an engineer at Bell Helicopter for nine years, I returned to school and received a Master of Arts in Biblical counseling from Dallas Theological Seminary - my true calling.

I have counseled individuals, couples and adolescents in a church setting before I became a professional counselor and I have worked for more than 25 years in a multidisciplinary clinic helping people, families and couples with emotional pain and trauma. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and Board Approved Supervisor in the State of Texas. It would be my honor and privilege to help guide you through your healing journey.
