I received my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology at California State University of Long Beach and my Masters in Counseling at University of Phoenix. I completed my internship at several non-profit agencies in the community providing therapy for children, adolescents, young adults, and families. I am currently trained in ( Parent Child Interaction Therapy) PCIT as well as Managing and Adapting Practices (MAP).
My style of focus is to be able to individualize my therapeutic approaches to meet my client’s needs and empower my client in being the best individual they can be.
I am excited to be part of the Gather and Grow OC community because as a team I believe that we can overcome mental health taboos and misconceptions that prevent people from seeking the guidance they need to live a happy life.
I am a bilingual (English & Vietnamese) Registered Associate Marriage and Family Therapist at Gather and Grow OC. I have been working with nonprofit agencies in Orange County and Los Angeles County for the past 10 years. I was introduced to the field of Psychology in a class I took in high school, continued my education at Cal State Long Beach where I obtained my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and completed my Masters in Counseling at the University of Phoenix.
While at Cal State Long Beach I continued to engage in the community by providing mental health awareness and for the past 4 years have worked as a therapist providing mental health services to underserved populations from different age groups. I am trained in Parent Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) and Managing and Adapting Practice (MAP). I also run different therapeutic groups around parenting, grief and social skills.
I wholeheartedly believe in the importance of self-care and mental wellness! At Gather and Grow OC I am able to help clients check their stress and worries at the door and facilitate them towards a journey of self-discovery. In a world where we can so easily lose our way, we must make being good to ourselves a priority so that we can get better! As a therapist at Gather and Grow OC I will help you manage life stressors, find your inner peace of mind, and guide you in this journey we call life!
