Accessibility of counseling services is crucial in help seeking. As I am aware of this issue, I have been in process of joining provider networks on health insurance panels. I am pleased to announce that I have been accepted as a provider for Medi-Cal for Alameda County Behavioral Health Care Services Plan, and for Managed Health Network. Health insurance is one way that psychotherapy and counseling services are made more easily available and more affordable for clients. I hope to serve more of those seeking therapy but have not been able to do so due to financial reasons. Check back on this site to see if I’m accepted on other insurance and benefits programs as well in the near future.

As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the San Francisco Bay Area, I focus primarily on cross-cultural issues, life transitions, trauma recovery and relationship difficulties. I am multilingual in Burmese, Mandarin, and English. I perceive psychological healing not only in a clinical setting, but also in a community setting. Thus I am involved in other projects that provide social impact and community healing through their various channels such as entrepreneurship and art. I am a founder and CEO of a social enterprise Citta Enterprises Limited, the mission of which is to empower and build capacities of the communities in Myanmar for their human, social and economic development.
