She has received extensive training in Internal Family System (IFS) and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).

Carolyn was born and raised in Taiwan where she received her bachelor’s degree in Clinical Psychology from Fu Jen Catholic University in 1998 and master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling from the State University of New York College at Brockport in 2009. She has been working in community mental health and substance use adult and youth programs since then. She speaks Mandarin and English fluently.
Working in the behavioral health field for over 20 years, Carolyn has worked with youths and adults with adjustment issues, career exploration, Self-identity, and mental health issues, ie, anxiety, depression, PTSD, ADHD, co-occurring, and substance use problems. She specializes in trauma work and has compassion to provide deep healing work to clients who seeks to improve their attachment wounds, adverse childhood experiences, and/or any life events.
Carolyn believes that “you are the one you’re looking for.” We all have the natural healing capabilities to heal ourselves which in IFS we called it “Self.” Deep healing occurs when we start to embrace our internal systems and the various parts of ourselves. When we truly “be with” and listen to our own internal world and create a harmonious balance, we become more spacious inside. We can enjoy the calmness, clarity, compassion, courage, creativity, curiosity, confidence, and connectedness in our work, school, relationships, and daily life. Change is possible and we can have choices. Carolyn hopes to walk along side the healing journey with you.

Carolyn 相信：「你自己就是你在尋找的那個人。」我們天生就有治癒自己的能力，在內在家族系統治療中所謂的「自我」是擁有療癒力量的。當我們能靜下來好好傾聽我們的內在小孩，了解他們和回應他們的需求，並慢慢尋找內心的平衡，我們就能擁有寛廣的內在世界。改變是可能的，我們是擁有選擇的。Carolyn 希望能和你並肩攜手一起走上療癒的旅程。
