Edwin consults with individuals, couples, and families to identify problems and find paths toward solutions. He uses a humanistic strength-based approach to explore barriers preventing clients from achieving their goals. Clients may bring in issues such as anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, substance abuse, identity, sexuality, interpersonal conflicts, or personal growth goals.

Edwin works within a multicultural perspective and affirms the unique perspective and history of each client. He has experience working with persons who differ from the mainstream in aspects such as ethnicity/race, sexual orientation, gender identity, ability, nationality, immigrant status, lifestyles, and beliefs. He graduated with a MS in Counseling from California State University, East Bay in 2014 after a career in the technology industry.
Additional thoughts
My parents immigrated to San Antonio when I was 4 and I moved to the Bay Area in 1985 after college. Now, I'm in my 50s and am a culturally mixed gay Chinese Indonesian American male who is embarking on a second career. In sessions, I speak English.
