I specialize in working with children, young adults and college students, parents, women in the perinatal period, and those who are experiencing life transitions, or have a history of trauma.
The decision to pursue therapy is often not an easy one. However, in working with a therapist, most people find a sense of relief that comes with learning that change is possible. Whether your concerns are long-standing patterns or new adjustments, through collaborative exploration within a therapeutic relationship, new ways of relating and coping can develop.

I identify as first-generation AAPI immigrant and a Woman of Color, and weave those intersections and values of collectivism, community care and social justice into my therapeutic style, supporting my clients' dignity and narratives across their healing journey.
I am passionate about working with individuals and couples, especially those with multicultural identities. I work well with clients who are struggling with life transitions, decreased self-worth and difficulties accepting recent challenges including grief, infidelity, unmet expectations and changing priorities.

I understand that choosing a therapist can be an intimidating and awkward process. I think personal referrals are usually the best but sometimes not possible. After thirty years of working as a therapist, I feel I've met and worked with all kinds of patients and helped many of them to change- feel differently about themselves, their relationships and their work. I see individuals, couples and women with new babies.

Does this sound familiar? ~You are a multi-passionate being and also an undercover artist, healer, leader and creative; yet, you feel guilt for prioritizing your own emotional and mental wellness. ~ You are aware of the pressure to perform under expectations and judgments imposed by your family, work and cultural standards. ~ You have achieved success but you don't believe you deserve it. ** In our work together, you will feel seen and supported as you embrace your natural resilience and creativity. You will rediscover your astonishing, healing story.

Everyone goes through challenging situations in life, and while you may have successfully navigated through other difficulties you've faced, there's nothing wrong with seeking out extra support when you need it. My approach is to be warm and deeply interested in both your struggles and your strengths. I work with clients who wish to understand and shift their anxiety, depression, self-criticism, and relationship difficulties. I particularly enjoy working with clients who carry marginalized identities including women , queer, trans, and POC clients. Central to my approach is the belief that cultural and environmental factors deeply play a role in our development.

As a mixed-race queer woman I hold an intimate understanding of the need for a therapeutic approach that is intersectional.
I believe that inside each of our struggles there is a choice and it's from this place that we can reconnect to and reclaim our inherent wisdom and power. My intention in our work together is to help shed light on the path to help guide you home to yourself

This has included working with women who have cancer, HIV and Holocaust survivors.

> Women , BIPoC and the Queer & Trans community are the heart of my practice < You are high achieving, reliable & responsible. Despite outward signs of success – ‘being the first in your family to ___' or 'having made it’ – you are suffering from imposter syndrome, self-worth, and acceptance (yours or your families). You are longing for relief from high stress levels & crushing anxiety, loneliness, or depression. Your relationships are strained & you have difficulty relating to others. You feel like nobody understands you. You don't feel truly seen. You rely on avoidance to escape feeling this way. Except that it's no longer working.

Through a collaborative partnership, I hope to help single women & couples gain mastery over their pasts so that they can feel freer in shaping their futures.
I focus on the challenges that single WOC face when approaching dating & singlehood. My goal is to help you overcome insecurities, improve your sense of self-worth, & build attraction with confidence, visibility, & spontaneity to inspire devotion & have desired commitment. In my work with couples, I use my understanding of the past experiences of each partner that may be impacting the relationship & repeated interactional patterns that cause pain. My goal is for you to develop an understanding & compassion for one another's experience. This newly incorporated consideration for one another establishes a framework in which strategies can be developed, learned, & practiced to improve communication & resolve conflict.

I have particular interest in working with and supporting women through puberty, early adulthood, reproductive years (including preconception planning, childlessness by choice, infertility, assisted reproduction, termination, and loss) and menopause.
Life moves so quickly these days, it's hard to take the time to really think about who we are and how we are living. Often, it takes years of patterns that are hurtful or self-destructive to wonder why we aren't feeling happy or fulfilled. Psychotherapy can provide the time and space to really understand and experience ourselves in a new way. I will listen with curiosity and warmth and will collaborate with you to help effect positive change in your life and relationships.

I have extensive experience and training working with women of color, specifically where it involves oppression and race based trauma (historical and current), Intergenerational Trauma, family dynamics, and the process of self-identity and empowerment.
My passion is working with clients from unique backgrounds and/or experiences who often contact me because they want to work on or through complex trauma, such as oppression based and/or inter-generational trauma. Modalities used addresses the concerns of those whose race, ethnicity, gender identification, income, disability/accessability, and other social factors which often go unrecognized/disavowed. Issues that arise for minority groups, such as oppression, racism, and marginalization, are relevant, recognized, validated, safely contained, and honored by me.

I work with many adult children of alcoholics, women aspiring to live fuller and balanced lives, partners healing from infidelity, clients struggling with social anxiety, and spouses whose partner is uninterested in couples therapy.
Quality psychotherapy can be life-altering, especially when one is motivated and open to the process necessary for change. I enjoy working with individuals who are looking to develop a more grounded sense of self; seeking meaning and direction in work and/or in personal relationships. Adults of all ages come to my practice to improve and enrich their relationships with partners, children, family members, friends and colleagues. Couples look to deepen their connection, learn new communication skills, and resolve and heal from repetitive conflicts so they can cultivate a resilient and joyful partnership with one another.

Being human can be hard, especially right now. With consistent support, there can be a little more ease. When you work with me, you get a woman with a big heart, a keen mind, and a clarity of purpose. It is my mission to hold space for you to feel safe to sit with big emotions, and to express whatever is in you that needs to be let out. There is a way to a more joyful life, and I will support you in the process. I help you get in touch with your inner truths and pains. I hold space for you to feel, to speak, and to move through mental and emotional blocks holding you back from being your full, true self.

I have been helping women heal from binge eating and bulimia since 2005.
If you are suffering with food & body image issues, issues of self-esteem & self-worth, relationship issues or dealing with trauma, I can help you. There are so many women who feel as though they are not enough. They believe that they somehow have to be better, look different, lose weight, be a whole different person to have a good relationship and a happy life. They beat themselves up constantly and are always trying to change. Do you understand this feeling? If so, I can help you have a loving relationship with yourself and settle into who you really are.
