Suzanne’s identity as an Asian American therapist is of utmost importance to her. In this space, she has processed multigenerational trauma and disregard for her own culture. She believes in the power of bringing people together.
Her past experiences include working with children, adults, and seniors in schools and hospitals. She also has experience working with adolescents in treatment facilities and private practice. She spent eight years providing therapy at the NYU Medical Center in the Adult and Pediatric Rehabilitation Department, where she gained further training and supervised students in art therapy and group work. She gained experience working with autism and young adults with developmental disabilities in charter school settings.
While her experience is vast, she has learned a great deal from raising her two wonderful children, who are grown and continue to teach her about life.
She believes in the value of family, communication, and systemic thinking. In her private practice work, she has learned the importance of everyone’s lived experience and how it affects them. She became passionate about working with couples and families and is currently seeking her second master’s degree in marriage and family therapy. She values the individual, the couple, and the family in whatever form it presents in therapy. She provides a safe space and values the client’s thoughts and feelings.
