My clients usually express experiencing conflicts, inside themselves or with others, and are looking for empathic, flexible, and dynamic clinician to provide support and guidance. My clients have challenges with anxiety, stress, trauma, depression, grief, self-esteem, self/body image, interpersonal relationships (family, platonic, romantic), work-life balance, life transitions, racial trauma, racial identity, challenges with boundary setting, and assertive communication. I provide them with a empathetic and supportive environment to explore these challenges, and develop goals and interventions to grow and heal.

My clients come to me for help with developing healthy self-care habits for optimal wellness. They have difficulty finding peace and calm in the midst of daily life activities (especially parents), and therefore may suffer various symptoms from stress and overwhelm (and possibly other mental health concerns). They come to me because they are intent on developing and maintaining healthy habits, and they know that using behavior science (Applied Behavior Analysis and Acceptance & Commitment Therapy) is effective in achieving behavior goals. They want to do this because self-care leads to more effective overall performance (life, work)

Through telehealth-, home-, and school-based services, I meet my clients where they are. Usually families come to me because they feel stuck. Their child has difficult emotions, acts out, and cannot seem to listen. Teachers and parents struggle to feel effective and worry about the child’s future. Everything feels complicated and out of control.

I also draw heavily from acceptance and commitment therapy ( ACT ), as well as mindfulness and Twelve Step.
Many of my clients struggle with thoughts and feelings that are intrusive, distressing, and demand an urgent response. My clients will make mental or physical efforts to relieve the distress but are generally unable to find lasting relief. Many suffer in silence as thoughts become too difficult to talk about. My clients just want to live life without so much avoidance, fear, anxiety, guilt, and time consuming behaviors.

I believe psychotherapy can foster our personal growth and empower us to reclaim our capability to nurture and take care ourselves. I am specialized to work on perfectionism, professionalism, depression, anxiety, panic attack, trauma, stress, autistic spectrum, emotional regulation, relationship, family of origin, and cultural/racial issues.

Let’s face it. Life can be very challenging and overwhelming at times. We all experience pain, hurt, loss, and many of us carry deep wounds that may be causing issues in our daily lives. It is part of human nature to get stuck in our thoughts from time to time, mulling over different scenarios, or feeling stuck and unable to make a decision. It is also part of our nature to seek healing, connection, and wholeness. Therapy can be your space to connect, seek guidance, discuss things on your mind, navigate through confusing times, confront challenges, grow and find more peace and balance in your life.

I work with people suffering from anxiety and/or depression who wish to deeply explore what is behind the symptoms they are experiencing. I work best with people who need a space to be heard and want to be empowered in their treatment. If you are noticing patterns and themes in your life and are unsure about why you are unable to do things differently despite wanting to change, exploring your foundational experiences can help to get to the root of the matter. Sometimes coping skills and tools are not enough, and I am here to help. I am LGBTQ affirmative, sex positive, and work through a social justice lens.

Acceptance and Commitment (ACT) Therapists

Is Acceptance and Commitment Therapy evidence-based?

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is one of many approaches within the field of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). CBT is an evidence-based treatment framework that has been shown to be effective in treating many mental health conditions including depression, anxiety disorders, PTSD, and OCD.

What is the difference between Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy?

Despite being part of the CBT family of therapies, ACT differs from other approaches within this field in several important ways: First, it emphasizes acceptance over change; second, it focuses on present moment experiences rather than past experiences or future events; third it focuses on what clients can do rather than what they cannot do; and fourth it emphasizes values rather than symptoms as targets for change.

What credentials will a certified Acceptance and Commitment Therapy have?

A certified Acceptance and Commitment therapist in Monterey Park will have completed specialized training in this approach at a university accredited by The Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies (ABCT).

How long does ACT typically take?

ACT is a relatively short-term therapy that focuses on helping you accept the things you can't change and commit to the things you can. It typically takes about eight weeks of weekly sessions with a therapist to complete the entire process. You may need to see your therapist weekly or biweekly, depending on the circumstances surrounding your situation.
