Hello, my name is Anthony! As a queer , second-generation Vietnamese-Chinese therapist, I am passionate about providing a compassionate and warm space for clients to enter center-stage as the main character of their own life.
Oftentimes, we are told to just be our genuine self, but that is so hard to do when societal standards, cultural norms, familial expectations set limits and boxes for us to fit into as well. These restrictions and boundaries only then muffle and silence the voices we have inside of us. This silencing and censoring can develop internal messages within us that we are unloveable, never enough, and not worthy of being authentically you. Feelings of anxiousness, nervousness, sadness, and loneliness may arise alongside these thoughts which make it difficult to get a good night's rest or enjoy your favorite hobbies.

I work with alternative lifestyle couples and the LGBT community.
I work with the human psyche! WHETHER LIFE IS ON FIRE OR WHEN PAIN IS TOO STRONG TO BEAR OR IF YOU LOOK FOR PERSONAL DISCOVERY. My ideal client comes in in order to learn about how to tune with his or her psyche. Clients, in depth work, learn about the inner and outer relationships and how to connect with the things that lies underneath. I see clients who are looking for discovery of what exists beyond the behavior and their actions and who are willing to dive into learning about the forces that drive them.

I have over 16 years of experience working with youth and families and the LGBTQ + community.
* LGBTQ + affirmative* Are you afraid to speak up or be your true self for fear of what others will say or do? Do you wish your family communicated more effectively, your kids would respect you and your rules, or you could get your teen to open up to you? Do you constantly give to others to the point of exhaustion or until you snap and wonder when it’s your turn to receive? If any of these scenarios fit your current struggles, I can help. When you reclaim your true voice and begin to use it thoughtfully and purposefully, you can lead a more authentic, balanced, and fulfilling life.

I work with individuals and couples who have tried to grow and live a full life but find themselves stuck. Pain comes in many different forms such as trauma, grief, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, discrimination, betrayal, anger, or just feeling lost. This pain can be like quicksand, constantly sucking you back in no matter what you do. My specialty is working with people whose pain is made more complex by intersecting identities (Religion/Spirituality, Culture/Race/Ethnicity, LGBTQ +, immigration). I also have specializations in working with, multiracial people, emerging adults, helping professionals, and men.

I believe that one of the most courageous acts that you can do is to confront and understand your own trauma and other deep personal issues. This journey is oftentimes painful and difficult and yet very rewarding when your own personal goals are met. As a victim of trauma myself, it took me years to confront and understand the trauma and abuse I went through as a child and this experience allows me to deeply understand what you are going through. Furthermore, I have lived through life’s peaks and valleys that allows me to feel and empathize with your pain, wants and needs.

I am passionate about working with Asian Americans, children of immigrants/refugees, and people of color in addressing stress, anxiety, and discontent in their present day lives. From my life experiences and professional training, I understand how systemic problems, traumatic events, one's upbringing, and family issues can all contribute to uncertainty, stress, anxiety, and dis-ease. At times, it can become difficult to know our needs, use our voices, or follow our dreams. It can be hard to listen to our own instincts, remember our strength, and find our calm within. Therapy can help us reconnect to these parts of ourselves.

I’m glad you are here! Looking for a therapist means you’ve taken the initiative to ask for help and seek for change. Many people say that they already start to feel better after making their first appointment. Whether you are feeling stuck or blocked to achieve your goals, losing self-confidence and motivation; or having difficulty coping with a recent loss, a big life change; or finding yourself feeling more anxious, sad, angry, or having more arguments and feeling unsatisfied in your significant relationships; or you are interested in figuring out who you are and feel more connected with yourself; I am here for you.

Every moment, it seems that the shape and texture of our world seems to be in a constant state of flux. In the midst of so much change, it can be easy to float above it all and lose our grasp on who we are and who we want to be. Our past relationships and life experiences taught us how to respond to these situations and feelings. And we feel stuck, when what we do no longer works to get us the relief we need. I can help bring awareness to these areas of stuckness to help you move towards choices that get you what you want.

Are you a man in crisis? I work with individuals and couples and specialize in men's counseling. Men tend to experience certain issues more than others such as anger management, substance abuse, impulse control problems and problems with intimacy. Men in our society are expected not to express their feelings but to deal with issues in a rational or logical way and are taught that being vulnerable is a bad thing. When emotions are not handled in a healthy manner or denied, other behaviors can manifest such as addictions, compulsions and avoidance. utilizing addictions and compulsions
