Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, Certified GAPS Practitioner
Food Is First
Right now, I practice as a Nutritional Therapist with a specialization in Gut & Psychology Syndrome, 5 days a week . Here's how that started:
After 22 years of personal and professional study, I received my NTP certification in 2011 from, The Nutritional Therapy Association or NTA . I concluded my internship in 2012 at Robust Life Center; under the guidance of Nutritionist - Sam Zeiler, MS- Author of "Multiple Sclerosis, A Love Story". I studied Body Ecology & *NRT simultaneously with Nutritionist - Vicki Lunsford-Hartzog, NTP, Body Ecology Coach, BEDrock Founder, and an Advanced Clinical Training Practitioner of, Nutrition Response Testing/*NRT - 2010, 2011 & 2012
•Became a GAPS Practitioner with Dr. Natasha Campbell-Mcbride , in 2012. ( the woman who wrote the book on the subject of Gut and Psychology Syndrome) .
•I completed the Intermediate level of *NRT, a form of Applied Kinesiology created by Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt
•Currently working, for the second year as a, group leader/assistant teacher to John Tjenos for NTA.
My background in nutrition, began at 18 with Dr. Jonathan Wright, author of: "Why Stomach Acid is Good for You" & Founder of the Tahoma Clinic in Kent, WA. I worked for him as a lab assistant my Sr. year of high school. There I learned the basic principles of raw foodism and some basics on healing the body with food and herbs. So inspired by the results, I began to earnestly study nutrition with the guidance of many "health" books, lectures & friends. HerbPharm's, "Therapeutic Herb Manual" & Dr. Norman Walker's, "Juicing for life" were priceless and worn. I was sucking down juices and herbs while feeding them to my friends and family. The books themselves were thin little treaties on health and healing. Nearly insignificant, in their thickness, the simplicity made the maintenance of the physical apparatus straightforward. I loved that.

As a product of “tiger” parenting, I understand the pressures that are typical in Asian families. My deep wish is to help my clients heal from the pain of feeling like they were only rewarded for high performance. I help clients develop of a stronger internal sense of self love and self-appreciation in order to live more fully and congruently.
The diversity of my life experience helps me support my clients more effectively. I was born in Taiwan and immigrated to Canada when I was an infant. Before earning my master’s degree in Counseling Psychology, I completed an undergraduate degree in International Relations and English Literature and a combined law degree and master’s degree focused on international law. I have lived in Singapore, Taipei, Beijing, Bangkok and Maastricht (Netherlands). I have worked in the fields of law, international relations, business, technology, marketing, real estate sales and education. I understand the stress and pressure of high demand professions. I also understand the challenges of cross-cultural communication from my experience as an immigrant, as a minority, and as a partner in a bi-cultural marriage. I offer individual psychotherapy for people of color, women and professionals. For more information: www.SeattleWomensCounseling,com.
In addition to individual psychotherapy, my husband and I offer two on two couples counseling. For more information on how we help couples bridge their differences, check out our website at www.BobandKarin.com.
To provide people of color, particularly of Asian descent, with support to thrive in a world where there is often systemic pressure working against personal success and happiness. Growing up in an Asian context, I was always told not to show negative aspects of myself or my family to the outside world. I was not surprised to learn that Asian Americans are three times less likely to look for help for their emotional or mental health issues (American Psychological Association). This is deeply concerning since suicide is the 8th leading cause of death for Asian Americans. U.S. born Asian American women had a higher lifetime rate of suicidal thoughts than the general population (Asian American Psychological Association). Help exists. I offer a place where all of you is welcome.
