What I Bring to Katy Counseling for Men

 

Background and Personal Insights

 

My life's tapestry is woven with the vibrant threads of two diverse cultures. A native of Laos, I immigrated to the United States with my family, cementing my identity as the youngest of eight siblings. My Midwestern upbringing amidst this energetic family instilled in me a profound appreciation for unity, resilience, and joy in life's simplest moments.

Physical health and activity are my steadying forces—a testament to their symbiotic relationship with mental health. Whether I'm humorously grappling with golf, cycling, or keeping pace in Houston's vibrant cityscape, these moments ground me and remind me of life’s balance.

Educational Journey A Therapist

Challenging familial norms, I harbored aspirations beyond the expectations of becoming another engineer in my family. In 1997, I became a proud graduate of the University of Michigan Ann Arbor, earning a Master's in Interpersonal Practice. My training centered on an integrated approach to mental health care, connecting the physical, mental, and behavioral facets to forge paths toward comprehensive healing.

Professional Calling

 

My career started in 1998, originally focused on enriching the lives of children, teens, and their families. The subsequent years have only deepened my expertise and passion for fostering intergenerational growth and healing.

The role of Executive Director at a non-profit honed my strategic skills but also clarified my true calling—personal interactions with clients facing:

 

I am skilled in various therapeutic modalities, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution Focused Therapy, Applied Behavioral Analysis, and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)

 

Approach to Therapy

 

My philosophy in therapy revolves around compassion and acceptance. I value and strive to maintain a non-judgmental atmosphere, believing that everyone deserves respect and understanding. I recognize that humor can be both disarming and therapeutic, and where appropriate, I incorporate it to ease the challenging process of self-discovery.

Choosing to engage in therapy signifies courage and a tangible step towards healing. If you're grappling with life's hurdles or seeking internal transformation, I am here to support and collaborate with you. Our sessions will be a space of warmth and light-heartedness, fostering growth and exploration within an accepting, caring environment.

I am eager to join you on your path to self-discovery and growth. I'm ready to welcome you into a therapeutic alliance built on trust, empathy, and a shared commitment to your aspirations and mental health goals.
