OOO 6/30-8/1. Do you feel like you keep making the same mistakes in your dating relationships? Do you find that when you finally get the committed relationship you thought you wanted, you feel insecure in ways you didn't expect? Everything we feel and react to is sparked by our interpersonal interactions. When those interactions cause self-defeating reactions, you can feel insecure, lonely, and defeated. I want to help you change your patterns. I help people calm the chaos in their mind and their life. You will learn that you can manage your life (relationships, family , career) with strength and confidence.

I practice using an integrative approach to therapy, drawing upon art therapy modalities, Internal Family Systems, humanistic, transpersonal/mindfulness practices, and a social-justice orientation of multiculturalism and diversity to inform and provide an empathetic foundation from which the process of growth can flourish.
I know how important relationships are, and how little we are taught about how to do them! I work with women who are feeling disconnected from themselves. Women who are struggling with body image issues, eating disorders, trauma, boundaries and relationship issues. I'm here to help facilitate a relationship between you and all parts of you. I believe there is creativity, reflection and expression inside of everyone and it can be easier to communicate without words. I bring warmth and energy to the room, my laugh is infectious. I bring levity to situations that can sometimes feel overwhelming and heavy.

Past leadership positions at Bay Area mental health programs have informed my work as a therapist. I have seen for some that balancing a career or education with everyday life can be overwhelming and isolating if one works endlessly while sacrificing self-care. You may find it challenging to set boundaries. You may feel like you are "being othered" by those who do not understand you. You may find it difficult to open your heart to family or friends when education, career, and relationships hold specific meanings for you. My passion as a therapist is to help people thrive in the ever-changing cultures of home, work, or academic life.

I offer psychotherapy through a person centered approach and will support you or your family to get through core issues.
As a therapist, I look for the basic goodness of human beings and try to bring clients having locus of control in their lives and share perspectives leading clients to feel liberated so they find the meaning of life; fulfillment and happiness. This takes practice, as our minds naturally scan for the negative, but if we try, we can almost always find something good about you and others which will lead us to heal and peace and may bring harmony and joy to our life. Personally, I enjoy reading books regarding history and philosophy. I have a strong passion for helping children and adults, including parenting issues.

Stressful encounters, complex life experience, academic stressors and more, can often cause college students, teens, and children to struggle with feelings of anxiety, depression, inadequacy, body image issues, and negative self-talk. In my career as a licensed marriage and family therapist , I have had the opportunity to work closely with clients struggling with these kinds of challenges both at school and at home. My goal as a therapist is to help my clients thrive and flourish by equipping them with the tools and guidance they need to navigate daily stressors, grow their self care, and improve coping skills.

Those I work with are typically trying to manage a time in their life that seems challenging, confusing, and sometimes hopeless. This may manifest as conflict with friends or family , trouble in school, a sense of feeling out of control, depression, or anxious distress. I hope to develop a collaborative therapeutic relationship with you that cultivates a sense of safety and trust to foster a genuine conversation about your experience and what you hope to achieve. Together, we will identify how you can develop a more fulfilling life experience utilizing insights you've gained through the therapeutic process.

As a bicultural therapist, I also have expertise in Asian American issues, immigrant/refugee mental health, minority stress, imposter syndrome, family /intergenerational conflict, and racial/cultural identity concerns.
Feeling stuck, emotionally overwhelmed, or struggling in your relationships? Are you suffering from self-doubt and thoughts of never being “good enough?" Is anxiety preventing you from pursuing the things that matter? As a therapist, I aim to help you gain insight into your emotional experience, build effective coping skills, and work through deep-rooted patterns to pursue a life of healing and fulfillment. My approach is evidence-based and culturally sensitive; I value the spectrum of human diversity and am attentive to social justice issues as well as the systemic factors that can impact one's sense of self and well-being.

Through an eclectic mix of experiential and evidence-based approaches and 10+ years of working in the SF Bay Area community, I offer individual, couples and family counseling to adults.
Sometimes we forget ourselves as we go about our lives, or forget what is important. Perhaps other priorities have taken the place of your needs and goals. Maybe it is work, or other people, or the details we all have to attend to in order to get through the day. Why am I here? Why am I doing this? Maybe you do know the "why" and yet that doesn't feel like enough. Maybe you wake up with dread knowing that the toil and toll begin again and there is no room for you. Life has become a joyless exercise full of duty, obligation, emptiness. The lack of meaning keeps you awake at night or drives you to distraction.

"May your choices reflect your hopes, not your fears." -Nelson Mandela. Choosing to seek therapy is an act of hope. I believe that through a supportive therapeutic connection, you can develop resources for healing, uncover inherent strengths, and meet new goals. I specialize in working with tweens, teens, parents, and young adults. I focus on supporting anxiety, depression, family /peer conflict, and those recovering from trauma. I facilitate groups for teens and their parents and have supported survivors of sexual violence. My approach is strength-based and focuses on each client as a whole person, not just the challenges they face.

I take into account your life experiences, cultural background and your goals, to be able to tailor therapy that meets your need.

Too busy with work for therapy? It’s a sign—make the time. Driven professionals burn out fast, preventing them from the doing the kind of work they demand from themselves. You think if you “just work harder,” the big payoff will come. Truth is, there’s always another hill waiting to be climbed when you’re already exhausted. And life outside of work? That suffers even more. You lack the energy and patience to engage effectively with family and friends, and time to yourself is a distant memory. You’re working so hard to build a better life for yourself—is this what it’s going to look like?

I draw from a variety of therapeutic modalities that include humanistic, family systems, attachment, and trauma-focused therapy.
I create a safe and nurturing therapeutic space for adults, couples & teens who are facing major life transitions such as college, career, divorce, or personal loss in finding a joyful and fulfilling path forward. I also provide empathetic guidance to the “sandwich generation” – women and men who are raising children while also caring for their elderly parents and struggling with anxiety and depression as they attempt to juggle it all. I help families navigate the complexities of raising children, adolescents and emerging adults in a healthy, cohesive way.
