Welcome! I specialize in helping couples and individuals overcome the roadblocks they face in the most intimate aspect of their relationship: the intersection of their humanity and their sexuality. In my years of work as a marriage and family therapist, I have found that sex is often about the full spectrum of life-issues which we encounter as human beings.

I have 3 specialties: sex therapy, sleep treatment, and child/teen mental health. Mind & Body Garden Psychology is a Mandarin-English multicultural group practice with 20+ bilingual therapists, psychiatrists, etc. We provide psychotherapy and neuropsychological assessment services, and see our roles as gardeners. When people come to us seeking support, they may have too many branches of mental blocks and bushes of stress in their lives. What we can do is to help people be more aware of the branches and bushes that impact their quality of life, and then assist them to trim these parts, cope with stress, and live happily.

As a father of two children, I know how important it is to seek the best education for our children. Being a compassionate psychologist with over ten years experience in supporting children who struggle with learning, inattention, anxiety and depression, I understand that learning, socializing and adapting to new environments can be difficult. Psychological testing can highlight a child's strengths, clarify areas of need and provide parents and teachers with practical steps they can take. I work with children with all levels of skill and areas of concern.

Congratulations! You have made a very important decision in your life - you decided to invite professional help into your life. The reasons behind your decision can vary. It can be your feeling of loneliness, difficulties to "fit in", or maybe the demons from the past affecting your life today and you feel like you stuck? Or the main goal you've had all your life seems more and more unreachable and you feel like a failure? Whatever it is, you are the only one who has the answers. You are the only expert of you. But sometimes these answers are buried too deep, so you need professional help to reach them.

Hello! I work with adults, adolescents and families. I believe we all have unique, innate strengths that we can rely upon to get us through tough situations but that sometimes it is hard for us to find them on our own. I work with my clients to uncover and support each individual's own innate strengths while integrating a variety of research-based interventions to reduce anxiety, improve mood, process trauma, and improve relationships.

My passion and purpose is working with survivors of complex relational trauma. You may be living with the effects of infidelity, domestic violence, sexual abuse, or addiction, or the stress of parenting a child with a chronic illness or disability. Or you may be seeking a therapist for your pre-teen or adolescent who is experiencing anxiety, family stress, or feeling they don't fit in with peers. You may also be a member of a marginalized group affected by systemic traumas. These kinds of relational wounds require relational healing. I will work with you to build a safe, supportive space for this healing work in therapy.

Working with adults and teens, my experience is largely with mood and anxiety disorders, particularly Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. This includes work with people at all stages of recovery from substance abuse and with survivors of sexual abuse. In addition, I partner with physicians in helping people live well with chronic pain or chronic medical conditions. I also have expertise in family work - helping people to negotiate the challenges of divorce and remarriage, and enhancing the lives of intercultural and interracial families. My approach is grounded in mindfulness, cognitive behavioral, and attachment theories.

I am a licensed clinical psychologist. My guiding principle is that every one of my clients deserves to experience joy, meaning, connection and fulfillment. Depression, anxiety, trauma and challenging interpersonal dynamics can obscure and frustrate this pursuit. As a therapist, I partner with each of my clients to manage these obstacles and help them experience the fulfilling lives that they deserve. I am also a clinical supervisor of new therapists, so I have lots of experience and training to draw on.

I provide individual therapy to adults. I offer a collaborative, direct and non-judgmental approach empowering you to use your strengths, expertise and abilities to find meaning and purpose during life's toughest transitions. Through the dynamic relationship of therapy, I can help you uncover frustrating patterns and behaviors, build insight and awareness to develop and sustain healthier relationships, and move towards healing. Taking the next step to talk with someone is vulnerable, but often life altering and healing in itself.

Most of us, if not all of us, come to a point in life where we need to regain our balance and redefine our goals. I know so because I have seen my clients, friends, and myself in such situations. By working together with you, I can help you to focus, mobilize your inner strength and establish new strategies to overcome problems that have become apparent. Topics that I handle (but I am not restricted to) are grief and trauma coping, relationship or family issues, anger management, and cultural or generational conflicts.
