I work through modalities that meet my client's needs including Attachment Based, Relational, Family/Martial, Strength Based, Trauma Focused , Cognitive Behavioral etc.
I see therapy as working towards a new improved and more empowered you. I view and treat my client as the expert in his/her life. I view myself as a facilitator of emotional healing and change. I provide a non-judgmental environment where my client can explore relationships and other aspects of his or her life and decide upon changes or adjustments he or she can implement. Therapy is a safe space where perfection is not required or expected.

Money, vacations and good food can make us happy, but how long does this feeling last? Sustainable happiness comes from within, unobstructed by past injuries and external influences. When we operate disconnected from our inner wellbeing, we feel lost, unsatisfied, depressed, anxious...the list goes on. As your therapist, our purpose is to nurture and witness your journey back to your true essence and to facilitate a process that will lead you to a life of wellness and authenticity.

You feel stuck, lonely, or burnt out. You find yourself feeling overwhelmed by life's demands and others' expectations. You imagine, what if you had options, an opportunity for relief, and permission to show up differently. People describe you as someone who's giving and thoughtful, so you're really good at putting the needs of others above your own. Many of my clients describe themselves as people pleasing, high achieving, and overthinking. Therapy with me is an opportunity to honor the parts of you which seek to feel "good enough," self-compassionate, and at ease.

I am interested in your journey - where you have been and hope to go, what you have done and dream of doing, and who you are and have yet to become. Many of my clients are young adults, creatives in the art and entertainment industry, helpers, entrepreneurs and executives, couples, Asian Americans, and parents. Common issues include: relationship issues with loved ones, family of origin issues, dissatisfaction with current life/direction, depression, anxiety, postpartum difficulties, and trauma. You may find yourself stuck in your life, possibly isolated or feeling alone. You don't have to go through this experience alone.

Are you feeling lost? Like you are stuck, and you do not see a way forward? It is a sinking feeling - but you are not alone. We all know what it feels like to be stuck. To face challenges, problems, and adversity. We feel alone and do not know how to find our way out. All the stress and uncertainty make it hard to sleep. It is impossible to focus at work, get things done, and our to-do list keeps getting longer and longer. Feeling stuck often means we feel overwhelmed and do not even know where to start.

You’re reflective, self-aware, and may be perceived as the “golden child,” within your family. On the inside, you carry the weight of feeling responsible for the emotions of others and struggle to trust yourself. You struggle with people-pleasing and fears of not being “good enough,” making it difficult to keep boundaries in your life and show up authentically in relationships, leading you to feel burnt out and depressed. You don’t have to continue feeling stuck in this space. You have the opportunity to develop self-compassion and set boundaries, allowing you to engage meaningfully with yourself, others, and your passions.

You feel a sense of urgency to meet expectations from others only to find yourself pushing your needs and boundaries to the side. You’re curious if, one day, you’ll be able to shift this pattern in your relationships, family dynamics, and career, but hesitate at the thought of rejection or being seen as a failure. This leaves you feeling resentful, tired, and burnt out. Therapy with me is an opportunity to work together where you can learn new patterns and identify your boundaries so that you can make decisions that are grounded in your values.

I like to be real with people. I find the best way to work with individuals and couples is to be present, ask the right questions, and give honest feedback. Whether you are coming to therapy for personal growth, a relationship or family issue, healing from loss, past trauma, or anything else, I want to explore who you are, how your life experiences have affected you and your relationships, ways in which those experiences keep replaying themselves, and how to get you out of the cycle. My approach is to provide a comfortable and real space to talk, explore and work on feeling better.

Part of our work together will center around separating who you think you "should" be from who you are. We will collaborate to cultivate an integrated acceptance of self, promoting a rich landscape for change to occur. Our society prioritizes individualism and fleeting connection over deeply intimate relationships. Together we will consider ways to cultivate more meaningful connections that inspire vulnerability and intimacy and build greater awareness around fears and conflicts hindering your ability to do so. We will clearly identify your needs and further develop the skills needed to communicate them to others.

You feel like you’ve tried everything to make your relationship work, and nothing seems to change. Try as you might, communication fails, tension builds, and once again you’re cycling back to the painfully familiar arguments that you had been avoiding in the first place. If only your partner stopped pushing your buttons, then you would have no need to retaliate or withdraw, and you would finally feel at peace. Alas, you’re instead finding yourself feeling stuck, lost, and alone. You are so tired of this. This isn’t how you imagined your relationship. Something must change.

Everyone deserves a safe space to process and grow and I believe that safety can be in the therapy room. My clients describe me as calm, supportive, patient, and non-judgmental of their views, lifestyles, and aspirations. I love working with adults who are struggling with anxiety, relationship issues, depression, or life transitions and couples who are interested in deepening their relationship or getting through difficult phases. Social justice, intersectionalism, and anti-oppression values deeply inform my therapy work. I approach all client relationships from a place of cultural humility.
