"Fly Me" Therapist*
I've directly trained Jenny by conducting a number of joint Intensive Couples Retreats together.
I can tell you that her perceptive skills are excellent. Given her 10 years of experience and her outstanding talent her fees are modest. That won't last. I assure you that if you book a weekend or online with her, you'll be delighted with the results. Her energy and enthusiasm for life, combined with her doctoral-level wisdom, are a rare combination...
I was born in Taiwan, China, and grew up in Vancouver, BC. Later, we moved to Los Angeles, California. After several years in a doctoral program in Virginia, I'm happy to return to Los Angeles in 2016.
Growing up in both Western and Asian cultures, I’ve been educated and socialized with two distinctively different mindsets. One that emphasizes individuality and adventure, and the other that emphasizes traditional values like loyalty to family. Many cultures are like that.
My adventurous side motivated me to live in six different countries and countless cities. I've traveled throughout the world, living and working in Canada: (British Columbia, Manitoba), Taiwan (Taipei), Japan (Tochigi), China (Guang Zhou) and Hong Kong (Hom Hum, Causeway Bay, Sai Kung). I’ve traveled to very remote places alone, and met remarkable people from all over the world. These experiences have made this life of mine an exciting one.
Over the last 10 years, I've helped individuals to speak up and define themselves in their marriages and relationships. Help them develop a more passionate and loving union. I help them to recognize that they don't live in a "bubble of me," but are connected to a network of people who love and count on them. Being "Me and We" helps people to mature and develop a more joyful, and happy life.
My style is both enthusiastic and respectful. I want both of you to be heard and understood in my sessions. I also want to understand your history and your story within context.
It would be my pleasure to work with both of you.
