I like to help people get into the roots of why they act and feel how they do, so that we can clear them out for good.
Do you have your emotions, or do they have you? Depression, anxiety, fear of abandonment, recurrent relationship problems, low self-esteem/self-hatred, substances...Any of this sound familiar? My focus is on trauma and early attachment injuries. I work with teenagers and adults, especially people with disabilities (including Deaf and hard of hearing) and international aid workers/expats. My clients want to connect with their authentic selves, free of the gunk from the past, so they can get out there and live for real, in touch with their emotions but not ruled by them. All abilities, races, creeds, sexual and gender identities.

BTS made you do it. That’s right, you’re looking for a therapist. You thought listening to their music wholeheartedly and connecting with army would be enough to ease the gnawing question of “Am I doing enough?”. Instinctively, you feel therapy with someone unbiased could help but you get caught up in thinking you’re too privileged to want more in your life. After all, you know people have it worse than you. Heck, your parents had it way worse than you.

Oftentimes, we are told to just be our genuine self, but that is so hard to do when societal standards, cultural norms, familial expectations set limits and boxes for us to fit into as well. These restrictions and boundaries only then muffle and silence the voices we have inside of us. This silencing and censoring can develop internal messages within us that we are unloveable, never enough, and not worthy of being authentically you. Feelings of anxiousness, nervousness, sadness, and loneliness may arise alongside these thoughts which make it difficult to get a good night's rest or enjoy your favorite hobbies.

"I'm not enough" - smart enough, attractive enough, successful enough, popular enough, loved enough, or happy enough. Have you ever had these thoughts? Sometimes our stories are full of shame and scarcity. We feel unworthy, but don't understand where these feelings come from, what drives them, and how to let them go. Therapy is a process of uncovering underlying issues and finding practical ways to provoke change. I will walk alongside you in your loneliness, challenge, or fear, and help you safely overcome struggles.

Life transitions such as starting or ending a relationship, starting a family, divorce, leaving for college, changing careers, or unexpected changes, to name a few, can elicit a lot of uncomfortable emotions that make us feel stuck, anxious, and/or depressed. Navigating life might feel impossible due to the uncertainties but we do not have to continue to feel this way. I firmly believe everyone has the tools within them to process, learn, and grow. Together, we will discover these tools, identify goals, and tangible ways to achieve them while exploring your strengths and building resiliency towards healing and empowerment.
