MONTEREY PARK — Asian American Christian Counseling Service (AACCS) celebrated “an afternoon of kindness” at its annual Spring Luncheon on April 21 at Almansor Court in Monterey Park.

The luncheon included the awarding of the Ryo and Jean Komae Scholarships to encourage budding therapists who desire to align their professional identity in mental health by serving the Asian American Christian community.

This year’s scholarship winners were Susanna Luu, currently enrolled in the Ph.D program for clinical psychology at Loma Linda University; Kim Than, currently enrolled in the Doctor of Psychology program at Alliant University; and Lyndsey Asami, currently enrolled in the Masters of Social Work program at Azusa Pacific University.

Since 1986, AACCS’ mission has been to provide emotional healing to individuals and families, to restore broken relationships, and to offer guidance for personal change and improved interpersonal relationships.

As a non-profit organization, AACCS has served both the Asian American and Christian communities in the greater Los Angeles area as well as Orange County. For more information, visit
