I am a psychologist. I was born in Vietnam, but my second home is in Australia. My interests include listening to Jazz and reading. I am obsessed with books on existentialism. I write about what it means to be human, our existential concerns and other psychology-related topics.

With a Master of Clinical Psychology and work experience in Public and Private Mental Health services, I am capable of providing psychological assessment and evidence-based intervention. I work with clients of all ages presenting with a wide range of issues including childhood trauma, autism, relationship difficulties, anxiety, depression and sleep problems. My therapeutic style is warm and reflective, enabling clients to feel comfortable to discuss their stories and struggles. I can deliver therapy in both English and Vietnamese.
