What on Earth are you doing here? Things were going along pretty well, then perhaps something happened. How did your life go off the rails? And, more importantly, how can you get back on track? Kudos to you for Googling your way here looking for assistance. Anxiety, depression, grief, family conflict, relationship issues, stress… If there were easy answers for the issues causing your suffering you’d have found them yourself by now. You realize that you need to find a therapist – not just anybody, but someone you can trust, someone who really gets you and speaks your language. That’s where I come in.

My approach is holistic and strengths based. I draw on a variety of approaches including EMDR, mindfulness, family systems, psychodynamic, and stress reduction techniques. I am skilled at helping people identify how their past is affecting the present and healing these memories which often results in new levels of peace and calmness. My training as a pastoral counselor has also equipped me to work with people who want to address spiritual concerns and questions. I have significant cross cultural experience from life in Kenya and Central America and I relate naturally and warmly to people of any culture or background.

One of the many things I enjoy about working with clients is being able to work with people across the lifespan and in various modalities. The ability to provide individual therapy to children, adolescents and adults; family therapy; and couples therapy, gives me the opportunity to work in collaboration with clients on a range of issues, needs, and goals. Ideally, clients are seeking therapy to work on something and are able to identify their hopes for therapy. In times where a loved one is seeking therapy for their child, spouse, parent, etc; I do seek to ensure that whomever participates in treatment is a willing participant.

Suffering is often the result of less than nurturing relationships and experiences. Fear can become imprisoned in the body. Family and culture can dictate how safe it is, or not safe, to express and be yourself. My own immigrant experience from Taiwan allows me deeper empathy with people navigating challenging life transitions and relating to different cultures, and even new relationships. I strive to empower individuals within the context of systemic injustice and complications. My work is to provide compassion and wisdom so that you can feel fully alive and authentic in your body, in your world and in your relationships.

Clients often come to therapy with confusion, frustration, or shame about why they are experiencing the symptoms or problems that distress them. A very important part of psychotherapy is becoming more curious about thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that initially may seem to make no sense and have no useful purpose. When we come to appreciate that even distressing or self-destructive thoughts, feelings, or behaviors have important things to tell us, we can begin to experience empathy for ourselves, make sense of our distress, and turn toward making desired changes.
