I treat all issues related to family dynamics, with a specialization in anxiety, relationship issues, and eating disorders.
Life can be be overwhelming. You may be anxious, depressed, or excessively worried. You may have difficulty focusing, making you feel unmotivated and unproductive. You may be feeling overly critical of yourself or loved ones and are having challenging relationships. The good news is that you have the resources and the strengths you need to overcome those challenges. I have seen many people make positive changes, and I’m here to help you do the same.

Grief, illness, family transitions as well as a challenging history are all good enough reasons to reach out for support.
Are you yearning for a more joyful life and more connected relationships? Perhaps you have patterns that are getting in the way of relationship and joy bc of difficult past experiences. I provide a warm, accepting environment to allow for clients to clear negative experience, regulate their nervous system and start living in the present. I have a certification in brainspotting, a neuroexperiential model which has been shown to reduce and even eliminate symptoms of trauma, anxiety, and depression. I also have a bachelors degree in music therapy so using music and other expressive arts are available to clients. KAP available.

I specialize in couples therapy, grief work (death/loss/trauma, end of life) and major life transitions. Additionally, as a bilingual therapist (Mandarin/English), I work with Chinese/Asian/multi-race families to address multigenerational traumas, parenting challenges and cultural differences. My work is informed not only by my trainings in psychotherapy but also by my prior careers in the intensely demanding law/finance/startups sectors which has helped me appreciate the enormous stress and complexity in the work/life dynamics facing many of my clients and their families, sometimes seemingly as a result of their very own success.

You’re arguing all the time- 3 years of covid have taken their toll. Or maybe your relationship began during covid and now that things are “normalizing” your relationship suddenly has challenges it never had before. I can help you navigate your relationship (or build a new one!) during these changing times. I use methods based on neuroscience research that have been proven in the field for over 30 years. I can give you tools and teach you skills to communicate in a way where you will feel both seen and heard. The system works—I have seven clients who are now engaged or recently married after working with me!

Do you find yourself asking “Should I be worried about this?” in regards with your child? Are you struggling to determine whether your child’s behavior is “normal”, a phase, or something that needs additional support? Is your adolescent’s inability to put his emotional experiences into words resulting in him communicating his inner turmoil through actions (i.e.,arguing, acting out, distancing from you, disengaging with academic responsibilities, etc.). I have a deep passion for working with youth and parents and have had the pleasure of working with children, adolescents, parents, and families from diverse cultural backgrounds and with various stressors since 2006.

I tend to see individual adults and couples in my practice who want to develop more self awareness, insight, and understanding as to why they are facing the difficulties or challenges which bring them into work with me. My hope is to help them see where their early childhood experiences impact and affect their functioning as adults. One goal for them is to become more flexible in their thinking and behavior so that they can enjoy their lives more fully. I see my role as an assistant to them in this process, trusting them, their thinking and ability to change.

Everyone deserves to feel like themselves. Sometimes life gets ahead of us and we can feel lost, stuck and/or disconnected. It can be distressing and cause suffering. Maybe it is a major life event or role change, a spiraling negative thought pattern, mounting academic or career pressure, or parenting or relationship challenges. Whatever the reason, it takes courage to seek help and effort to imagine change and improvement. You have taken the first step. Your next steps will be joined by a therapist who will treat you with respect and work diligently to address your presenting problem.

This-is-important! It won’t go away when you turn your back. It won’t sort itself out while you distract yourself with other things. You may well need a hand in resolving things but only YOU can take the first step and ask for that help, which we are all PERFECTLY allowed to need sometimes. Resilience isn’t about never being angry, sad, fearful or guilty. It is about knowing how to respond appropriately.

Are you looking for help to sort out sad, hopeless, angry or confused feelings? Perhaps you have struggled for a long time, or perhaps a crisis in your life has overwhelmed your usual ability to cope. Each person needs something different from therapy, such as support in rocky times, new ideas about unsatisfactory relationships, exploration and clarification of difficult life situations, or encouragement to reach for joy and purpose in life. My approach to our work together will be custom-fit to your hopes, your concerns, your goals, your life.

My particular expertise and interest is in working with survivors of trauma, abuse and victimization. Having survived trauma, abuse and victimization can lead to a variety of outcomes. Some people survive trauma with no problems at all, while other people develop anxiety, depression, substance use, personality or relationship issues. Various traumatic events, such as parental divorce or substance abuse, are very common even in middle class populations and have often both physical and psychological effects many years after the experienced trauma.

"What is the trouble that brings you in today?" I always start our conversation this way. I begin sessions by focusing on the here and now and filling in the past as needed. I help individuals struggling to create relationships that are fulfilling enough, work with parents, teens, couples and individuals trying to find satisfying relationships, be effective in the workplace or school and channel their behavior productively. You are likely frustrated and have tried a to get results for yourself or a loved one: try something else! .My style is warm, pragmatic and grounded in meeting you where you are hurting most to cultivate change.
