I completed a post-doctoral fellowship at Reiss-Davis Child Study Center in 1989 and specialize in psychodynamic therapy with children, adolescents, and their families.
I work from a psychoanalytic perspective with children, adolescents, and adults struggling from a variety of issues, including difficulty with intimacy and relatedness, recognizing and expressing emotional needs, feelings of loneliness or emptiness, self-destructive or self sabotaging behaviors, or repeating painful life problems with little sense of control. Since children and adolescents have not yet fully developed the capacity to talk about their emotional experience, difficulties tend to show in their behaviors, such as opposition, defiance, poor grades, or turning to drugs. In my work with adults I offer individual or couples therapy in a safe and nonjudgemental atmosphere.

I provide therapy to patients of all ages suffering with anxiety and depression. I help patients going through life transitions. Within a trusting therapeutic relationship, the exploration of dreams and unconscious drives proves effective for a deeper understanding of challenges and blocks. Psychoanalytic, Psychodynamic , Gestalt, Play Therapy, Sand Tray and Art are theories that are core to my approach.

I've been a clinical psychologist for over 40 years. I have treated a broad range of clients during this time utilizing humanistic and psychodynamic approaches. My focus in therapy is with adults who struggle with a variety of personal issues including depression, anxiety, self-esteem and relationships. I am quite interested in the concerns that younger adults confront as well as those that individuals face as they transition into their mid-life years including aging, retirement, sexuality, illness, and loss. I believe that I can help clients gain greater clarity as they work to resolve these issues in an atmosphere of support and warmth.

I like to use psychodynamic and cognitive behavioral therapy approaches to therapy to set people free from the emotional chains of the past.
My goal in treatment is to provide tools and help guide people into healing from any wounds that may hinder them from fully walking in the freedom. I am committed to helping people obtain a healthy thought life and lifestyle by being renewed in the mind, becoming transformed and being set free on all levels so they may further pursue life goals and maintain healthy relationships without the hindrance of emotional burdens from the past. I am a born again Christian and I love integrating faith and spirituality in the emotional healing process.

Feelings, feelings, feelings. They can be complex painful, rewarding, and sometimes, confusing. Sometimes those feelings and emotions consume us, other times we avoid them either way; they affect us. In this space, I hope to help guide your understanding of what you are experiencing. To acknowledge triggers, and normalize some of your behaviors without excusing them. In all, my goal as a therapist is to create an environment where you feel listened too and important .

As an Asian-American DREAMer and a DACAmented bilingual/bicultural therapist, my heart lies in supporting members of the API community who have experienced marginalization due to their intersection of identities (ie spirituality, sexuality, legal status, cultural background). Specifically, I work with individuals as well as "minister's kid/pastor's kid" who have experienced religious and relational trauma, imposter syndrome, dysfunctional relationships, and repressed sexuality as a result of the internalized cultural and societal messages they were exposed to that have further perpetuated an oppressive narrative around who they are.

Belonging and authentic connection are core to well-being. When connections are torn, even in subtle ways, we can spiral into anxiety, depression, or lose sight of who we are. You deserve to feel in sync with loved ones and a chosen community.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.
