Hello and welcome! My name is Vy (she/her) and I’m so glad you’re here. I strive to offer services that are based on clinically proven methods centered around social justice and are culturally conscious.
As an Asian-American woman, I was born in Vietnam and emigrated to the Pacific Northwest. Because of this, I have experienced the difficulties of navigating multiple different cultures. This has helped me understand how cultural dysphoria can impact our lives and relationships. This is also why I am so passionate about working with couples and families who may need help communicating their different needs to not only grow but flourish together.
I believe that you are the expert in your lived experiences and that together we can create an engaging environment where you feel safe, respected, and heard. My goal is to assist and empower you to be in touch with your inner child while finding your personal strengths and your own path in life. I operate from a strengths-based, emotion-focused, and multicultural framework. My therapeutic approach is also informed by internal family systems therapy. I have experience working with neurodiverse and Vietnamese-American folks.
I honor all your identities and will hold space for all races, ethnicities, genders, sexualities, and abilities. I look forward to working with individuals, couples, and families from BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, and other historically marginalized communities who have experienced trauma.
During our time together, we’ll talk openly and honestly about the ways that power and oppression impact your life and relationships, while recognizing that therapy doesn’t happen in a vacuum.
I look forward to connecting with you!
