對話 Holding Conversations

如果對話的出發點是想改變對方的想法,那你很可能會失望。一來一往的對話會擦出許多火花,這些碰撞有時讓你大開眼界,有時是茅塞頓開,但更有可能挑戰你的成見,讓你感到不舒服,進而產生更多疑問。

What is your inner dialogue telling you?

What things do you tell yourself daily? What is the theme of your dominant thoughts? While our inner dialogue echoes our thoughts and perspectives, our thoughts and perspectives shape our relationship with ourselves, which in turn, create our reality.

Healing and Restoration After an Affair

The moment of truth follows a sudden snap of the bond and the trust is broken. Infidelity is bound to redefine the relationship. Hopeless as it can feel, it presents an opportunity that your relationship will be better than it ever was.

破解心理諮商的迷思

不知道大家對心理諮商的印象是什麼? 會讓你聯想到國高中永遠不知道在幹麻的輔導室,還是你認為諮商是瘋子、爛草莓、憂鬱症患者或無法控制情緒的人才會去的? 不管你對於諮商秉持的是好奇、疑惑或懷疑的態度,這篇文章希望能破除一些心理諮商相關的迷思和刻板印象,邀請你一同閱讀。

檢視你的特權

七年級那年,我在美國德州就讀了一年的國中,和台灣不一樣的是,午餐時間不是在班上吃,而是到全校集體的學生餐廳(Cafeteria),可以買學校廚房準備的食物或自備午餐。印象深刻的是,放眼望去,白人聚集一桌,拉丁裔的人聚集一桌,黑人聚集一桌,最後一桌則是落單的、零星的一些同學。當時心裡就很納悶,為什麼大家都只跟自己膚色的人做朋友呢? 不能大家都是朋友嗎?

戰鬥 — 逃脫 — 麻木: 了解你如何面對壓力

試想在森林郊遊的你遇到熊出沒,你第一時間的反應會是什麼? 你會想辦法去正面迎敵? 還是趕緊拔腿就跑? 或者你也可能嚇得停在原地,一動也不動。當人們面臨危機,接收到危險、驚嚇或刺激時,大腦為了想保護我們,在短時間內須做出回應,這三種壓力反應(stress response)稱為「戰鬥—逃脫—麻木」(Fight—Flight—Freeze),這是為了生存的自我防衛機制。

青少年諮商: 創意介入方案

青春期,一段羞澀、叛逆、脆弱、迷惘、震盪的歲月,交織著狂喜、焦慮、尷尬等五味雜陳的情緒。面對生理與心理的劇變,許多的第一次在青少年時期發生,情竇初開,第一次經歷戀愛的感覺; 結交義氣相挺的朋友,第一次尋求同儕間的認同感和歸屬感; 在學校和同學產生衝突甚至被霸凌,第一次對人際關係感到失望、挫敗與羞辱。好不容易終於能夠獨立做一些決定、擔當責任、解決問題,但又還沒有完全的自由能為所欲為,還是得接受父母與老師的管束。我相信青少年渴望自由與獨立背後,尋求的是自我肯定和生存意義。


About Me

I am a therapist, a traveler, a believer, an off-the-chart thinker, and a feeler at core. I talk for a living but music is my sanctuary.

I was born and raised in Taiwan, a beautiful island located on the Pacific Ocean. The richness of my culture inspired me to listen, appreciate, and reach out to different voices.

As an Associate Marriage and Family therapist, I am honored to hear people’s stories as they walk through different seasons of life. I received my Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from University of Florida and have worked with diverse populations in community mental health organization, university counseling center, hospital-based outpatient program, and private practice.
