Why Did You Become a Therapist?
Becoming a Therapist is not the typical Asian American career. I was lucky enough that I was naive enough to follow my dreams despite all the potential impracticalities. It wasn’t easy but I know for sure that this was what I was meant to do. I felt so privileged to be doing something I love and also be able to make a living. I shared about my journey in this interview. Check it out!
I attended UCLA and San Francisco University where I finished my master’s program in two and a half years with a dual master’s degree in Marriage Family Therapy and School Counseling. I see a large range of clients, for many reasons including couples counseling, marriage counseling, relationship therapy and as well as working as a Marriage Therapist for varying scenarios. I feel that as a therapist that it’s most important to BE a Therapist versus just Doing therapy.
I am often asked how I became interested in becoming a Marriage Therapist and for me, My First inspiration was my mother. She was a great listener as well as a bartender where she gave a lot of free counseling. From a young age, I would be the person everyone would come to for advice or talk about problems. I remember a privileged feeling I would get whenever someone let me into their lives.
