Do you experience painful sex, anxiety, struggle with starting or keeping an erection, and ejaculating sooner than you want?Perhaps you have a partner and you are anxious about how to communicate your true feelings or concerns about sex and intimacy. Being authentically you and communicating how you feel can be a real struggle. If this resonates with you, then know that you are not alone. Also, know that your fears are valid; it can feel painful to be rejected, not heard, not seen, and not fulfilled. These struggles are not a reflection of you as a person. They are a sign that there is an area that needs attention and support.

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.

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.

Of all human experience, nothing can fully prepare one for the pain of grief and loss. Perhaps you are grieving the loss of an important relationship, the end of a meaningful career, loss of employment, a miscarriage(s), the sudden death of someone close, losses due to COVID-19, loss of sense of self, or loss related to life cycle transitions. Maybe you are grieving a suicidal loss. If this resonates with your circumstances, I invite you to explore as well as honor your emotions. Please contact me if you would like greater processing, adjusting, and acceptance in your life to help increase your sense of agency.

My primary goal in working in mental health is to put myself out of a job. Given that each of us intrinsically know what we need to heal and grow, my approach to psychotherapy is to couple your expertise of being you – your reality and lived experiences – with my skillset, in order to collaboratively work towards achieving your goals. Through a culturally-affirming and healing-centered stance, I utilize evidence-based treatments to facilitate our work.

Are you so anxious, depressed, and angry that you feel overwhelmed? Or do you want to be a more social, confident, and positive individual? Each client is unique. The ultimate goal of therapy is to allow a client to learn about themselves in order to be more proactive and live the fullest life possible.

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 .

Do you often feel like you're not good enough or not doing enough? Do you struggle in your relationships? Do you have difficulty coping with daily responsibilities and difficult emotions? Life can be fulfilling and joyful as well as difficult and stressful. We often wonder how we can manage our lives and relationships at home, school, and work and deal with difficult thoughts and emotions, while keeping up a certain image around others. We wonder why we do what we do, and we go around in circles, with minimal progress. This can be frustrating and exhausting, and you may have come to a point of needing some guidance.
