Welcome to Purely Pim. A lifestyle blog, uncensored.

Hi, I’m Pim, a young professional, a military wife, and a wanderluster. I was born in Thailand in 1993, but grew up in the the U.S. Like many Asian-Americans, my childhood was like a Los Angeles version of Fresh Off the Boat. After graduating from the University of California, Irvine in 2013, I moved to San Diego to begin my journey as a therapist. And man did many things happen along the way! At 19, I pledged to visit one country a year (minimum!), and I’ve been doing just that. I finished my Masters in Marriage in Family Therapy at Alliant International University in 2016, and became a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and a Registered Play Therapist. I married my sailor on May 4th, 2018 in Coronado. Currently, I’m a full time therapist in private practice and a doctoral student. I specialize in working with children, teens, and young adults. My husband, Justin, and I live in San Diego and we’re dog parents to our son, Obiwan. On my off time, I’m either on a yoga mat or on the other side of the world. Superheroes, comics, and geeky things keep me sane.

This blog is about what I know best: being a therapist, being a military spouse, and traveling. And I intend to keep it real! I invite you to join me on my uncensored journey and I hope that you gain a little something out it!
