Why Asian Psychologist (me)?
  • One of the essential functions of a culture is to provide ways to relieve the suffering of its people. Since many forms of suffering, emotional distress, psychological stress are inevitably related to cultural patterns, patriarchal attitudes, the approach of healing also follow the culture’s characteristic value and beliefs. 
  • Asian culture influences how we understand ourselves which includes overall mental health and well-being. As asians we love to live together in clusters and stay connected to our community but at times it becomes difficult when we try to be individualistic.  
  • Working with a psychologist who shares your identity can not only help you to combat stigma but also to build up a stronger therapeutic relationship. 
  • Having a culturally competent therapist will allow you to fully express your feelings and emotions as I understand your personal beliefs, values and experience better. It helps to remove assumptions and judgements which makes it easier to connect and understand the language with your therapist. It’s one of the most effective and reliable ways to connect with someone who looks like you.
