I have specialized training in grief and end-of-life-related issues, Buddhist informed, smoking cessation, and mindfulness.
I seek to empower my clients and offer them opportunities to be seen, heard, and acknowledged with compassion, patience, kindness, and attention. My work is trauma-informed and I have extensive experience working with people of diverse racial, cultural, socioeconomic, spiritual, sexual orientation, and gender identities. I treat my clients with utmost respect and honor their resources, skills, and wisdom, which I help them to uncover and rediscover. I help clients to address life circumstances in healthy ways and built resiliency and deeper awareness as well as tools for healing and transformation.

I have spent more than 10 years studying healing methods with not only top psychologists in the field of therapy but I have also travelled the world and studied with Buddhist and Christian monks at various monasteries, lived with shamans indigenous to the Amazon and learned from religious leaders in the First Nation and Sufi communities in North America.
"I believe one of the bravest things you can do is to begin to understand your own story." I have dedicated my life to build a practice where people can come to a place of peace, where you feel comfortable and safe to unburden yourself about the most intimate and personal aspects of your life without the fear of being judged or shamed. This process allows you to shed the layers that keep you going in the same cycles and help you start a new and more fulfilling chapter in your life. Calling a therapist can be intimidating, but I hope you will take a moment (and maybe a deep breath) to call and see how I can help.

My vision of body, mind and spirit integration model of practice reflects the Buddhist mandate of great compassion to others and self.
I work with people from all nations and cultures, and I work more with adults in my practice and with some Chinese when I also speak both Mandarin and Cantonese. Life is never smooth. From time to time, we need to seek help from others to face the challenges. As a professional psychotherapist, I am keen to journey with you through your life difficulties such as traumatic events, life changes, loss, and grief. I will help you to identify your own feelings, emotions, values, faith, and strength to face your life problems causing stress, anxiety or depression etc. Hopefully we work together to find meaning and transcend life changes.

My ideal client is one who feels ready to let go of an old pattern that no longer serves them. This takes awareness, courage, and compassion. You might be in the beginning stages of change, and just getting to know the problem, be it anxiety, depression, problems in relationships, or a life transition. You may have made significant change already, having implemented good habits, but reached a plateau and now wish to develop these good practices further. I support my clients by meeting them where they are at, making values-based decisions from a calm, clear place, and accessing mental flexibility wherever they are stuck.

When difficult times come, people are drawn to look at themselves. The habitual patterns of personality and relationships may no longer work or may be unsuited to who you are now. Feelings like shame, guilt and loneliness are painful. Unconscious defenses that protected you in the past can create problems rather than solve them and can actually inhibit your growth and freedom in the present. Therapy can increase self awareness, improve relationships, vitalize your sense of self, help you to discovery meaning and purpose, provide solutions to problems and reduce feelings of distress. Therapy is like a renovation. 30 years experience.

I work as a therapist for other therapists, a healer for wounded physicians. My clients tend to be high performers who struggle with the downside of over control, perfectionism, and anxiety. I am grateful to have excellent training and experience; my background serves to move beyond symptoms to Self leadership, well-being and growth. Many clients complete their therapy less controlled by their conditioned habits, fears, traumas, and aversive motivations. It gives me joy to see clients leave their time with me with all parts more aligned with Self, Curiosity, Compassion, Clarity, Connectedness, Creativity, Courage, Confidence.

Sometimes, people go through difficult times in life. They face issues in relationships, oppression, systemic racism, social support, self-worth, gender, sexuality, grief, loss, loneliness, trauma, mental/physical health, or family. When in a crisis, people may feel helpless, hopeless, or lost. I believe each person is whole and deserving of love, compassion, and understanding. I am here to support my clients with their struggles, helping them understand they are not alone, connecting them with greater safety and their needs, resources, and meaning. My clinic offers sliding scale rates from 2 therapists by referral.

“Don’t take anything literally but always look deeper. For example, if you drink too much, what is your [mind] looking for in the alcohol? If you eat too much, what part of your [mind] is in need of nourishing? Think poetically and never respond on a surface level.” -Thomas Moore

Life is challenging, especially during a world-wide pandemic.  If you are feeling anxious, worried, irritable, lacking in motivation, or energy, you are not alone. The ups and downs of life may feel more pronounced and harder to manage right now, or perhaps you feel alone and lost as you navigate changing roles (e.g. parenting, caregiving, or at work). Compassionate support can help you to move through a period of difficulty and offer tools to help you develop inner strength, find a different perspective, and get back on your feet.

I use intuition and energy work to help clients identify and transform the deeper programming that has been underlying their struggles. After a session of working on this level, my clients report experiencing flow and possibility where there had previously been stuckness. Whether you are seeking to address physical, emotional, relational, existential, and spiritual challenges, we may be a good fit if you're looking to go deeper standard talk-therapy. My approaches generally fit best with individuals who have prior experience in contemplative pursuits (eg meditation, journaling, yoga, etc) and an interest in venturing inward.
