I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Accredited Parenting Coach, and Founder of The Modern Parent. Through my deep healing work with families, I have learned how vital it is to fully understand yourself in order to show up in alignment with whom you want to be. The clients I work with are ready to better understand how their current and past stressors, relationships, and concerns are getting in the way of living life fully and enjoying it. We peel back the layers and story that we have been told about the "problem" or how we view the "problem" and shift this narrative to one that allows us to function in a way we deserve.

Stress is at an all-time high. You’re doing your best to keep everything together. But on the inside, you are struggling – you never feel good enough - and no matter how hard you try, the inner critic quickly reminds you of all the ways you’re falling short. Finding balance is nearly impossible. The stress is becoming debilitating. It’s been exhausting. You can’t even remember the last time you were truly happy because being okay with not being okay has become your norm. You’re tired of putting yourself last and doing things for others at the expense of your wellbeing. This is it. You’re done. It’s time for a change.

I approach psychotherapy from a spiritual perspective and I believe therapy, along with other practices, can help us awaken to a life of meaning. In therapy I will help you identify the source of your longing to be whole, and together, we will move closer to that source, so you become re-sourced. Together we will explore your innate natural cycles and help you align to your own inner rhythm, so that you might meet depletion with rest and energy with creativity.

Hello, I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and I am a Certified Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapist with EMDRIA. EMDR accesses the brain's innate ability to overcome the obstacles of past trauma. I understand how past traumas can lend to people feeling "stuck," and can contribute to a great many symptoms and problematic behaviors. I work with people from age five and up, to help overcome challenges, particularly those which are compounded by past traumas. I am ready to help you to learn new tools to overcome your current and past challenges and to move toward future peace and ease.

Feeling anxious or depressed is a reasonable reaction to the unreasonable levels of stress that young people deal with. My work is aimed at helping you make sense of your thoughts, feelings and behaviors. I'm not here to tell you that you need to change. You might have behaviors you want to change, and I will support and assist for sure, but it's important that you know that your core self is whole and loveable, just the way you are. The work in therapy is about going from knowing that to believing it in your bones.

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.

What type of Palo Alto mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Palo Alto?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
