About Elaine


Licensed Professional Counselor

Hi there. I’m a Vietnamese – American trauma therapist and EMDR practitioner. I specialize in treating trauma and helping people flourish.

About My Clients

My clients come from many different backgrounds, genders, and orientations. I work with people from 35 different cultural backgrounds, with a special interest in mixed-culture folks. I also specialize in helping people realize their full potential and personal best in relationships, careers, and spiritual growth. My typical client is strong minded, motivated by learning and growth, and interested in removing all obstacles to the realization of their best self.

My Background and Approach

I take a holistic approach to healing that includes talk therapy, EMDR, shamanic work, and Buddhist principles. I am also a Feldenkrais teacher and currently pursuing a foundational fitness and health certification in order to help people recover their bodies and minds after the chronic stress and inactivity many people experienced during the COVID pandemic.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am a longtime Buddhist and see the world through that lens and also that of being a dancer and artist for 30+ years. Healing has three stages: identifying the problem, clearing the problem, and then growing into the space that getting rid of the problem opens up. I am non Christian and childfree and am happy to help people dealing with religious or cult trauma who are seeking support for living a child free life. I also serve neurodivergent clients. I have taken people from severe trauma to high level corporate success by following this model. Please feel free to schedule a free video consult with me for a chat if you’re interested in learning more.
