As a sensitive woman of color myself, I intimately understand your struggles, and as a trained therapist, I have the skills to create a compassionate place for you to heal.
Do you find yourself controlled by shame, from feeling you are “too much” or “not enough”? You are craving healthy, fulfilling relationships but are struggling to break generational cycles and harmful patterns from the past. You've learned to hide your struggles from others. You hide behind your capability, your ability not to need while readily meeting the needs of others at the expense of your own. Your extreme independence hides the fear of relying on others, of trusting them. You have tried and tried to ignore the wounds from childhood, from generational trauma, from discrimination, from having your sensitivity misunderstood.

Though I see clients of all backgrounds, I specialize in working with women of color, addressing needs that are often times specific to one's racial identity.
Therapy is, in my opinion, something that everyone needs at some point in their life, but not everyone has access to it. Financial and cultural issues are often times the two biggest barriers between people who need therapy and people who receive therapy. My clients are a culturally diverse group, coming to therapy to address issues that they feel can be best helped and understood by a therapist of color. I also offer sliding scale fees to help with the financial barriers that too often keep those who both want and need therapy, from getting it.

5 generation Chinese American woman , I hold insight into the experiences of immigrants and the kinds of expectations that are common for many in the Asian American diaspora.
My approach is affirming of all identities and their intersections. I integrate a culturally responsive approach to find balance between your inner self and addressing the impacts of oppressive systems. I work with adults experiencing anxiety, perfectionism, burnout, life transitions, depression, grief, insomnia, and trauma. One of my specialties is working with adults adjusting to recent cognitive changes (e.g., COVID brain fog, mild cognitive impairment) and family members of loved ones with a progressive neurological disorder (e.g., dementia). Amidst life's toughest moments, finding clarity, connection, and joy is still possible.

I specialize in working with young adults, parents, college students, women , folks in the LGBTQIA+ community, and people who have chronic illness and disabilities.
The single most consistent predictor of success in therapy is the relationship between therapist and client. I prioritize creating a trusting relationship. My approach is collaborative, relational, and interactive. I balance listening deeply with gently challenging clients to make meaningful change. I am not a therapist who sits back silently. I also do not presume that any given technique or my own experience hold all the answers in our journey together. Rather, I draw on evidence-based, relational practices, more than a decade of clinical practice, and your lived experience, cultural and personal practices, beliefs, and values.

I work with adults, teens and couples that are struggling but ready to take the first step toward happiness and fulfillment. If you find yourself with anxiety, feeling down on yourself, overthinking, and doubting your decisions or life path, we can work together to find confidence, joy, and peace of mind. Feeling overwhelmed and stressed doesn't have to be a way of life. I serve clients that want to feel excited about life, love themselves and have fulfilling, low-drama relationships. Yet, anxiety, stress, baggage, and self-doubt have gotten in the way. I work to help you define what you want, then find the way.

I have a passion for working with and supporting people. I'm not the type of therapist who sits quietly, hands crossed, saying "mmm-hmm, how are you feeling?" I’m interactive, and will provide you with a confidential, comfortable and safe space for you to talk, ask questions, and share your feelings and emotions. Together, we will work to develop the tools to help you through this journey called life. With my compassion, support, friendliness, and added touch of humor we will team to work through the difficulties or problems you are experiencing. ***My website may have been hacked.

Welcome. I work with children, adolescents, and adults coping with relational, anxiety, traumatic, and mood disorders. In my practice, therapy often entails exploring the impact of early attachment experiences on our views of self and our ability to form close, meaningful relationships throughout life. In our work together, you will be treated with warmth, empathy, and openness. The most important part of our work is the development of a trusting relationship. This relationship creates a thoughtful, safe space to explore your strengths, challenges, and goals. My approach to clinical work is largely relational and psychodynamic.

I listen and offer support. I have a variety of techniques available to use including EMDR, EFT, CBT, and more, that can facilitate the changes you seek.

As a psychotherapist, I help clients redefine how they live their lives. I am a licensed clinical social worker who sees children, adolescents and families as well as individual adults. By engaging in a series of conversations, I will help you to challenge the problematic assumptions and ways of being that prevent you from realizing the full potential of your life. I work from a colloborative stance that assumes you are the expert on your life. But my own expertise in helping people overcome emotional problems, troublesome habits and relationship roadblocks can help you create new solutions to old problems.

I consider therapy a collaborative effort, guided by your needs. Through meaningful conversations I address your goals, your beliefs & their origins, and look at what's not working for you anymore. Therapy gives you the space you need to look at what is true to you by exploring your boundaries and willingness to go to uncomfortable places. I've been working in a private practice since 2008, first as an intern and now as a licensed clinician. I am attentive, warm, and compassionate. I take my work seriously & believe a little humor can aid in the healing process.

How can I find a therapist in Alameda?

Search for nearby therapists or counselors by inputting your city, town, or suburb; or zip code; or a provider’s name into the search bar. From there, you can filter providers by the issues they treat, cost, insurance, gender, and other factors to find providers who are well-suited to your needs. To navigate between locations within the same country, enter a new city or zip code into the search bar.

Learn more about how to find a therapist.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online or over the phone can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your zip code.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counselor?

Therapists, psychologists, and counselors are all licensed mental health professionals. In the United States, psychologists have earned a doctoral degree. The terms “therapist” and “counselor” are used somewhat interchangeably, but generally therapists offer longer-term, mental health care, while counselors offer shorter-term care that may focus on one domain, such as marriage, career, or academic challenges.

What type of therapist is right for me?

Clients should consider factors such as insurance coverage and their primary reason(s) for seeking therapy to determine the type of professional best suited to their needs. Someone struggling with mental health challenges such as depression or anxiety, for example, may wish to seek out a clinical psychologist, psychologist or therapist, while someone navigating career obstacles or marital upheaval may benefit from seeing a counselor who can offer short-term, targeted support.

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

The Psychology Today directory lists providers who offer legitimate mental health services to the public, including psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and counselors. Many have been licensed by the country or state where they practice; providers whose license or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Some clinicians or organizations provide services for which their state or country does not offer licenses, such as pastoral counseling. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.

What type of therapy is right for me?

The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.

Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?

Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.
