In this stressful time you may be anxious, depressed, or excessively worried. You may have difficulty focusing, making you feel unmotivated and unproductive. It is possible you feel overly critical of yourself or loved ones and are having challenging relationships. The stress you're experiencing might even bring back difficult memories. I view your symptoms as unique, important expressions of your internal experience. These feelings should be respected and valued; they are clues about what is going on internally. The good news is these feelings present an opportunity, and a road map, for change.
I’m a bilingual, bicultural psychotherapist with over 12 years of experience in working with teens, adults, and families from many cultures. I treat all issues related to family dynamics, with a specialization in anxiety, eating disorders, and relationships. Additionally, as an Asian immigrant I’m passionate about helping Asian communities.
Seeking therapy takes courage. You've taken the first step towards healing and growth. I welcome people from all backgrounds. My services are offered online using a secure video platform. Feel free to contact me for a free initial consultation.
