I am an Asian American therapist of color, and I'd love to help you! I invite you to visit my website by clicking the button on this page.
Do you move between culturally different worlds on a regular basis? Perhaps you feel that you don't completely fit in, that your identity is mixed or "in between," and you long to say what you've never before dared to say? Maybe you missed a warm, nurturing upbringing because you were taught to focus on achievement at the expense of emotional needs. Is this a legacy you wish to accept for yourself or your children? As the American-born child of Filipino immigrants, these issues resonate deeply with me, and I can help if you feel stuck between opposing cultural values.

Therapy is an opportunity. It is an invitation to start healing. We discover various aspects of ourselves, looking into issues from new perspectives, increase self-awareness, and the potential to promote a better quality of life. I am professional, respectful and warm to every person I treat. Together, we create treatment goals that settled in your needs and best result. Also, I am a bilingual therapist and have a decade of practice with Asian Americans especially Chinese immigrants. Whether you feel no belonging in opposing cultures, or how to raise second generation immigrant children, you can work through this journey with me.

As an Asian American therapist, I have supported many clients manage their procrastination issues and deal with their fears around not measuring up. I help high-achievers from culturally diverse backgrounds step into their self-acceptance, thrive and banish self-doubts. Any fears of not being good enough is hard to manage in adulthood when there was a childhood that required them to be in complete obedience or else be punished. When you work with me, you address your fears and insecurities at your own pacing. My clients enjoy my warm sense of humor and my ability to listen in a non-judgmental and caring manner.

I am an Asian American mindfulness practitioner who specializes in issues of acculturation, racial identity, intersectionality, stress, anxiety, perfectionism, communication, and loving self-kindness.
You've come here because you're lost, lonely, confused or in pain. Perhaps you've done everything the "right way" but that hasn't led to happiness. You want things to change, but you don't know how, or where, to start. I believe I can help you, as I've helped many others, including myself. Therapy can be a radical, healing experience, and I attend my own therapy sessions on a regular basis. In our work together, you can unpack and witness your whole self in a safe, collaborative, and empathic way.

I welcome people from all walks of life in addition to those who identify as Asian American, people of color, refugees, and immigrants.
I support human beings who are trying to build a deeper understanding of themselves so that they can make decisions and embrace their lives in a more authentic and fulfilling way. There is no one right way to live life and I believe that a truly deep wisdom resides in all of us. Sometimes we just need support in getting there. Together, we can explore places that feel emotionally scary, breathe space into the places that feel suffocating, and challenge beliefs that trap us into behaviors that hinder growth and healing.

With expertise gathered from years of experience across borders, timezones and cultures, I assist diverse clients from varied backgrounds in navigating their unique, in-betweenness/intersecting identities, including All (multi) Racial/Ethnic/Cultural Groups, Asian , Black/African American, Hispanic/Latino, 1st, 1.
I work with men and women who are seemingly high achievers but deep down inside feeling disconnected, lost, alone, even if they are in a relationship, and often feeling like they don't belong. I treat anxiety and depression through examining deep-rooted inner conflicts, shame, guilt, insecurity, childhood trauma, family of origin, as well as unconscious cognitive distortions and unhealthy coping mechanisms that manifest in perpetuating self-doubts/disappointments, relationship difficulties, and career dissatisfaction. It often gives me great joy when clients with prior therapy experiences find progress in our initial work together.

I lived and worked in the Pacific Islands and understand many of the cultural variables that affect illness and wellness among Asian /Pacific Islanders.
I have extensive experience working with survivors of trauma, Addictions are often an unwelcomed side-effect of trauma, and I can work compassionately when they co-occur. I understand the unique challenges that developmental age plays re: traumatic events, death and loss. I take a gentle yet proactive approach to treating trauma. I know the difficulty of talking about these most personal and often horrifying events. I have compassion and respect for survivors of trauma. My approach to treating trauma is reflective of this. I also offer Divorce Mediation services when marriages fail due to these issues.

Specialties include: college students & young professionals looking to find their place in the worlds of work and relationship; first generation immigrants, particularly BIPOC and South Asian Americans; adults who have (or had) a parent or a partner with severe mental illness; and adults looking to integrate psychological growth with spiritual exploration.
Few, if any, of us grow up in an environment that perfectly fits our needs. As we grow, we adapt to our surroundings in ways that may run counter to our vitality, health, and happiness. By exploring and understanding the underlying emotional and psychological patterns that shape our lives, we are able to develop choice in whether to engage in patterns and habits that no longer serve us. As a psychotherapist, I provide a curious, and compassionate presence, lending my heart and mind to this process of self-exploration and self-understanding.

In addition, Michael specializes in working with Asian Americans and their families; addressing issues that are unique to them.
We live in a culture that is constantly pushing us to strive for perfection. Whether in school, work, or our everyday lives, the need to constantly achieve can put great strain on our self and those we care about. This can lead to chronic depression or anxiety, social isolation, feelings of inadequacy, or even thoughts of suicide. It is hard to break out of this culture. It is hard to find flexibility of thought and a space to feel like we are good enough. Yet, through compassionate acceptance and practical skill building I can help.

As an Asian American male who has experienced, taught and presented on racial/ethnic dynamics and identity issues, I have a deep appreciation for the way life's challenges can be further complicated by problems that stem from intergenerational and intercultural conflicts, especially with our intersecting identities.
If you are struggling with unbearable feelings, loneliness, identity issues, shame, guilt, and/or relationship difficulties, I offer a safe, non-judgmental space for you to explore yourself in relation to your world. My approach rests on the belief that our ways of understanding and coping with the present may be limited by our previous experiences. By working together, we find new expanded ways to help you understand and cope more effectively.

With mindfulness and compassion, I help my clients transform their limiting beliefs, access their strengths, and move toward a greater sense of wholeness and ease. Couples describe my work as insight-oriented and free from blame or guilt. Colleagues and clients have called my style authentic, direct, and compassionate. I always try to provide warmth and a quick sense of humor. I believe remembering the past is helpful to the extent it helps heal, and so while we’ll be attentive to the past, our focus will be on how its legacy is impacting your life now. Our work will be relieving of past pains and also bring more calm and joy.

Do you have the sense that you could be happier, more creative, and more confident? You are probably looking for a therapist because you are experiencing some degree of emotional pain: conflict, loss, stress, or sadness. I’ll help you tap into your internal strength to navigate life’s difficulties and grow. I’ll help you attend to some of the old wounds (big or small) or entrenched patterns that aren’t serving you. Life gets easier when you have a non-judgmental, caring person to walk alongside you instead of handling life on your own.

Maybe you are pursuing something important--a relationship, career, education; yet you find yourself overwhelmed, depressed, angry, or stuck. Maybe you act differently to meet others' expectations, win approval, avoid being picked on, or just to fit in. This act of contorting one’s self can be taxing! Sometimes past trauma can impact meaningful relationship-building, can interrupt pursuing life goals, and stifle growing into our truest selves. Therapy offers an opportunity identify these pieces. Together we can sort through them in an effort to build insight and help you embody the most empowered and authentic version of yourself.

I’m not beating around the bush here: things are pretty messed up right now. And when it feels like the world is on fire, of course you’re going to be freaking out. Maybe your life seemed fine until recently, and maybe you’ve been struggling longer than you can remember. Either way, I am here to help. I work with all ages, genders, sexualities, racial backgrounds, cultures, and subcultures. From work stress to identity crises, communication problems to childhood trauma, all issues need space to breathe, and a big part of that is finding a therapist you can be real with.
