I specialize in working with youth, young adults, and their families to close the gap between where they are and where they want to be in terms of their roles as students and the many identities they are taking on as they grow and develop. I use neuropsychology to establish habits that provide a baseline for managing stress and regulating energy. I apply CBT and other evidence-based practices to support mood management and develop the mindset necessary to achieve goals, and mindfulness and relaxation strategies to sustain behavior change. I facilitate advocacy with schools to reinforce behavior change in a supportive environment.

Hey there! Thanks for taking the first step toward treatment by taking a look at my profile. In terms of my therapy background, I have experience working with individuals, groups, and families on a number of complex issues. I have primarily focused my work around the treatment of trauma, depression, anxiety, anger management, and relationship issues. I also identify as bi-cultural, and have centered my work on decolonizing mental health and healing in contexts that align with each person's cultural identity.

I am currently providing telehealth (phone or video) appointments. Are you motivated to address family-of-origin, mood, or interpersonal issues in psychotherapy? I enjoy working with clients who want to improve their self-esteem and assertiveness, in particular people who would be considered late social bloomers (including socially awkward/mildly anxious). My ideal client wants to break out of self- or other-imposed limitations so that they can live a full life that is in line with their own sense of sovereignty.

Growing up, I heard a lot of negative things about therapy. You may have also experienced a cultural stigma against the idea of talking about your innermost thoughts and feelings with someone other than family or friends. However, I believe everyone can work towards happiness with the right kind of support in their lives. I provide online counseling for adults or teens who are seeking help with anxiety, post traumatic stress, prenatal & postpartum concerns, high-pressure work/school, and more.

Do you struggle with overwhelming emotions? Maybe you are frozen by anxiety or overrun by worries you can't control. Or you feel so numb, empty and hopeless that you can't concentrate or work. These emotions cause you to snap at others or retreat so that your relationships are not what you want them to be. In our sessions, you will learn what keeps you stuck and identify new ways thinking and behaving so you can move forward. You will also learn what to do when you are feeling intense emotions and be able to stop avoiding life.

Do you feel overworked, over-stressed, and overwhelmed? Many of my clients come into therapy struggling with some form of stress and anxiety, particularly stemming from an unease and dissatisfaction with how their life is going. Many feel “stuck” — uncertain on how to handle these nagging feelings. I have extensive experience working with professionals in highly demanding career fields, especially those dealing with high levels of stress and anxiety in their job. I specialize in working with Type-A, high achievers, particularly those struggling with issues such as work/life balance, perfectionism, and impostor syndrome.

The most important aspect of therapy is the degree of trust and comfort between therapist and client. I believe that my therapeutic approach utilizes a combination of interactive engagement and questioning that quickly creates a level of ease and commitment to change. I am a therapist that will listen, give you insights into the cause of your problems and offer ways to cope with emotional issues in your life. I encourage change by challenging client's distorted belief systems and maladaptive behaviors that they have developed through life experiences and help them see their true self.

During these times of COVID19 I am continuing to offer a safe place to heal via telehealth and over the telephone. In these trying times I am helping people to cope with their “new normal”, feelings of isolation, being stressed and stretched to the max, overwhelmed, irritated, angry and issues of new and old relationships. I am helping people make sense of their lives and relationships again. The world can be overwhelming, but we don’t need to let the world overwhelm our lives. I use CBT to help people to make emotional and behavioral changes. Where do you want to be in life? Let’s make a plan and get you there.

For over 25 years, I have been helping people resolve or improve painful symptoms and difficulties in their lives and relationships. Watching people grow and being a part of that process has been immensely rewarding. Research and experience has taught me that forming a safe, understanding and flexible client-therapist relationship is key to a good therapy outcome. We are all authorities on our own life experience. Through active listening and dialogue, I strive to understand and attune to each client's experience with respect and care. It is only from that standpoint that any helpful work can be done.

I work with a variety of issues including depression and anxiety and I specialize in the challenges of grief & loss and low self-esteem.

Struggle with RELATIONSHIP issues? Let it be your spouse/parent/sibling/child/a close friend? Feel frustrated, hurt, disappointed, discouraged and stuck? I specialize in providing individual therapy dealing with troubled relationship and also couple/marital counseling. Another passion of mine is serving individuals/families of Asia/South East Asia background. Being bicultural and multilingual, I understand those 'unspoken rules' that many traditional Asian families have that often complicate interactions within multi-generational family. I feel particular rewarded to assist clients in finding the delicate balance between individual and family needs.

I work collaboratively with local psychiatrists, neurologists, pediatricians and school teachers. My office is one of the preferred testing sites for IQ assessment by a few well-known private schools in the bay area.

What type of Newark mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Newark?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
