By looking at a caterpillar, nothing in it tells us that it's going to be a butterfly. Sometimes it's also hard to imagine that our life transforming is possible, though it actually can happen. Just like the transformation of a caterpillar can occur, with patience and perseverance, in a safe and warm cocoon, our life transformation can also begin in a safe, supportive and psychotherapeutic relationship.
Life is tough! Suffering and pain seem inevitable! Yet with your willingness and my passion, we can work together to make each setback in your life to become a setup for growth and transformation.
I worked as an engineer, a scientist, and a manager in AT&T Bell Labs and Apple Inc. for more than 20 years. With bitter and sweet lessons I have learned in my career, marriage and raising three sons, along with the growing passion I have had towards serving people, I have turned a page of my life to become a psychotherapeutic counselor to serve people in the areas of relationship, family, marriage and career development.
I have actively involved in church and community caring ministries, serving as a lay counselor and leader in children, youth and family ministries as well as in a Boy Scout troop. In addition, my wife and I founded and operate a preschool, where I serve as the school counselor helping students and parents to build strong and loving family relationships.
I received my Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey, and my MA in Marriage and Family Therapy from Western Seminary.
Credential is important, yet love is essential. I prayerfully hope that I can make a difference in people's life by genuinely caring and supporting them while they go through peaks and valleys in their life journey.
