I have a wide experience working with clients who have experienced a major loss and and are grieving, whether the loss is the death of a loved one, the loss of a job, the loss of a relationship, or the losses that can come with chronic illness. I have also helped numerous people who are in emotionally and verbally abusive relationships, or have been in such relationships with partners, parents, or friends in the past. In addition, I enjoy helping people suffering from anxiety and depression to release these mood states and adopt a more tranquil state of mind.

Sometimes life brings challenges that require us to learn and grow in unforeseen ways. These challenges can take the form of an illness in ourselves or a loved one, death , the loss of dreams held dearly, and trials that are part of living and maturing. I work collaboratively with individuals, families, and couples to help them overcome the stressful events they face.

Some of my specialities: Infertility, Reproductive Loss , Depression, Anxiety, Grief and Loss , Divorce, Relationship & Life Transitions.
Are you struggling right now, feeling stuck, overwhelmed? Feeling low, worrying, and just trying to balance and get by. Thinking this is not the life you imagined for yourself. Between work, family obligations, relationship challenges, it is hard to carve out time and energy for yourself. However, we all know we can't pour from an empty glass. Research by Dartmouth reports that in your 30's and 40's, are the most unhappy time in our lives. You are not alone. Let's find a way to help manage this time when we are juggling many roles, because surviving isn't enough, wouldn't it be much more fun to thrive?

Our lives--and the lives of our loved ones--are so often challenged by issues such as anxiety, depression, addiction, anger, loss or grief . And we are often so pressured by the demands of every day life that we struggle simply to get through each day. While our relationships with others are usually our greatest sources of love and support, they are often the sources of our deepest pain. Through the process of therapy, we find the opportunity to look inward, heal emotional wounds and find healthier ways of being in relationship with oneself and others.

I have served those experiencing anywhere from depression, anxiety, trauma, to grief , substance use.
I was born and raised in the San Gabriel Valley, to a traditionally Chinese household. I have always believed that my interactions with others shaped who I am today. Life lessons were taught from the little things such as sharing comfort food, creating laughter with friends, family gatherings. Along the way did I realize how emotions played a role in how we interact with one another. So, it was through those around me have I learned the value of helping others in any sense of the way, but more so in the emotional sense. Being able to connect with someone on a mental health level, can help fill a void that is often left forgotten.

Our work may address grief , anxiety, depression, anger, denial, avoidance, isolation, overwhelm, relational discord and addiction.
When life begins to present its inevitable and unexpected crises and losses, you may find yourself in need of support during times of transition and change. Friends and family may not be safe to resource to help you "get over it". My job as your therapist is to support you on your unique journey through adversity toward opportunity. It's my privilege to accompany you on your journey as guide, facilitator and ally with compassion, respect, creativity, expertise and sometimes humor. I commend you on your courage to begin.

I have extensive background in helping people navigate life transitions, grief and loss , as well as daily challenges like coping with disappointing ourselves or others, the reality that we cannot control as much as we would like, and the fantasy we're told that it's possible to get things "just right" if we work hard enough or sacrifice enough.
Life can get difficult sometimes.  If you are struggling, you are not alone. I believe we all have a natural ability to transform and heal during difficult times if given support and guidance to know ourselves and the longings beneath our emotions. My goal is to provide an interactive, affirming and empowering space for my clients to explore their emotions and longings, ultimately building resilience. I'm trained in working with stress, anxiety, depression, loneliness, shame, grief and trauma. I have years of experience providing brief and longer term therapy and can help you build capacity for a vibrant and deeply meaningful life.

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.

My focus is on women experiencing infertility, perinatal loss and postpartum depression and I am certified in perinatal mental health.
As you start on the path to motherhood are you feeling anxious, sad, perhaps shame or just not yourself? It can be frustrating, draining, and at times heartbreaking. This is likely not how you thought it would be. Society tells us that becoming a mother will be a natural, seamless process filled with joyous moments. It's often not the reality. I recognize and acknowledge that this can be a difficult time, and I am here to support you regardless of where you are in this journey. Imagine how it would be to feel more like yourself again. To feel confident, happy, calm, and entering motherhood as your best self.

I am a certified grief counselor and also have expertise in aging, dementia, long term care planning/community resources.
Perhaps you are overwhelmed with stress and not sleeping well, or are dealing with anxiety, depression and feeling isolated. Maybe you or a loved one is managing a serious health condition, or you are an overwhelmed caregiver. You may be a parent, a teen or young adult experiencing stress or loss of a loved one or a relationship. I believe people are incredibly resilient and capable beings with the ability to adapt and adjust to all types of challenging circumstances when given the right care and support. You deserve to set aside a time and space to think through your thoughts and feelings in order to heal and feel better.

Grief is not limited to the loss of people, but when it follows the loss of a loved one, it may be compounded by feelings of guilt and confusion, especially if the relationship was a difficult one.
