Wellbeing is enhanced through connection, freedom and purpose. Therapy done right builds on personal connection, finds unrecognized freedoms, and orients it all with purpose, values and place. My therapeutic stance integrates these threads with unusual openness, warmth, balanced intellect and wit. My practice cultivates resilience not dependence, vitality not the victim trap ideology that has taken over the field. I can help you acknowledge and overcome painful situations, reckon realistically with limits, and untangle other matters of the heart. Pain is a part of life, but you needn’t suffer or manage alone.

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.

My specialties include childhood trauma; narcissistic/abusive relationships; codependency/boundaries; perfectionism; career changes; grief from illness/death of a parent; spiritual/psychedelic integration; supporting LGBTQ, non-binary, POC (especially Asian Americans) with topics like interracial relationships, cultural identity, racism, and family conflict.
There is so much pressure about who we should be. Sometimes we have to hide parts of ourselves to fit in. And we lose touch with who we truly are and what makes us feel alive. This disconnection to our truth can lead to feeling depressed, anxious, lonely, or not good enough. Are you longing to feel accepted for who you are? Therapy is a non-judgmental space for you to explore what matters most to you. I can support you in healing old wounds and transforming patterns that lead to feeling stuck, overwhelmed, or drained. I offer approaches for holistically healing and connecting the mind, body, heart, and spirit.

I draw upon Internal Family Systems, Attachment theory and Interpersonal Neurobiology approaches to help you explore patterns and emotions that get in the way of your own innate well-being.
At points in life we all find ourselves in a place of not knowing. Not knowing how to manage feelings, thoughts, and experiences; not knowing what to do about or how to recover from a major life event; not knowing how to be with others or with the difficulties that arise from being alive and human. I view therapy as a tool for healing and healing as something that begins when we learn how to listen to and relate to ourselves differently. I help individuals, couples and families of diverse backgrounds and identities transform how they relate to themselves and to others in a way that opens the door for healing.

I have assisted individuals in overcoming issues they may struggle with that are connected to trauma, grief & loss, depression, general anxiety, COVID19 anxiety, juvenile justice systems, oppositional teens, suicidal ideation and marital and family conflicts.
As a person of color born and raised in the Bay Area, I truly believe in my task and role as a therapist to reach those who feel as though their story is unheard and invalidated by the world we currently live in. My strengths as a therapist consist of gaining over nine years of experience working in the field of mental health as a mental health clinician under the non-profit realm and private practice within Santa Clara County. Over the course of my experience I have built skills in providing therapy to socioeconomically diverse families, children, individuals, couples, and those who identify with the LGBTQIA population.

Struggling with addiction and feel rehab isn’t an option? Leaving your family , job, school and responsibilities for an extended period of time is not always needed to get yourself healthy and on track. If you or a loved one are struggling with addiction, I know the challenges of this lifestyle. Being caught in the cycle of addiction is hard-feelings of anxiety, guilt, and shame. You may have tried stopping on your own, only to find yourself engaging in the same unhelpful behavior. I have experienced this firsthand and know there are ways to escape the slavery to addiction. I specialize in moderation & abstinence based approaches.

I am a general practitioner with experience working with clients across the lifespan, treating a range of presenting concerns, including: complex trauma, interpersonal difficulties, anxiety, panic, depression, obsessive compulsive disorder, body-focused repetitive behaviors, life transitions, minority stress, and family conflict.
I believe the key to change lies in cultivating a safe, strong therapeutic relationship. Through a developmental lens, I aim to understand each person’s history and how their unique story informs current challenges. I feel passionate about working with clients from diverse backgrounds and utilize a culturally-informed approach when understanding life experiences and associated thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. In conjunction with this psychodynamic, relationally-driven approach, I help clients identify a clear presenting concern, develop goals, and integrate the appropriate evidence-based practice tailored to their specific needs.

My holistic approach to therapy emerged out of my passion for health and my connection to nature. While I combine several modalities in my practice, at the heart of my work is empathy and authenticity. I believe in working together to help resolve the challenges or circumstances with which you are currently facing so that you may develop an enhanced relationship with yourself and those around you.

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.
Whether you are facing life transitions, struggling with depression, anxiety or unresolved trauma, it can be difficult facing these challenges alone. Maybe the usual ways you cope aren't working anymore, and you're tired of trying to figure it out. Perhaps you've been in therapy before and you're reluctant to try again (even though you really need to). Maybe you have one specific goal and you just need some support in getting there.
