Especially when life involves grief , loss , trauma, or abuse of power.
“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” - Anais Nin. Creativity, liberation, and transformation — getting your power back — these are core tenants in my practice. My approach merges reflective space to spark insight with concrete tools and strategies to drive change. I draw from existential philosophy, the arts, and culture, as well as research and theory to match unique needs with individualized treatments that resonate.

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.

Welcome. My approach to therapy is collaborative and results-focused. I am told that I am insightful and my knowledge and perspective are helpful. I can be direct when needed and think humor can sometimes lighten challenging situations. Better understanding ourselves can lead to lasting change in our lives even when we previously felt stuck. My background as an engineer and manager means I understand the pressures of working in the tech industry. Often very successful people still need support in one aspect of their lives. I have experience with clients from 5-85 years old and from many different cultures and backgrounds.

You are not broken. It is human to feel loss , sadness, anger, fear, or unworthiness. Recent advances in neuroscience can help us understand why we feel stuck, sad, stressed, scared or alone. When we begin to understand the implicit/unconscious feelings/beliefs that automatically run inside of us we begin a journey that can lead to more awareness, and therefore to more choice in our lives. The hardest part of this journey is the first step; to make your growth a priority enough to tolerate the discomfort of facing what isn't working.

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.
