Although my approach with each client is highly individualized, I integrate trauma-informed, CBT, DBT , relational, psychodynamic, and feminist theoretical approaches in the work I do with clients.
I have had the honor of working with individuals across the lifespan with a variety of mental health concerns such as trauma, anxiety, depression, life transitions, LGBTQ-related issues, family dynamics, and more. I believe that human beings are inherently relational and that we are born to thrive from connection to others and wouldn’t be who we are if not for the people that have come in, and sometimes out, of our lives. Examining these relationships can be a huge part of therapy, whether it’s with our parents, our partners, or with ourselves.

I am who work as a part of a DBT team and supervise.
People often feel vulnerable and overwhelmed when starting therapy. My approach to therapy is that therapy is a partnership between the client and the therapist. I believe it is important that we both are working towards the same goal and that you feel comfortable enough to be honest and open to my help. Creating a partnership will help the two of us make progress together and empower you to be aware of your own potential. I provide individual, couples, family and group therapies. All therapies focus on developing skills to make lasting change and to improve self esteem.

We integrate treatments, including Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy ( DBT ), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Motivational Interviewing, mindfulness, self-compassion and positive psychology.
Is your life not where you want it to be? Change is hard. While doing things differently can feel uncomfortable at first, it is possible to do, and becomes more comfortable with time. Change often applies to the behaviors we engage in, or the thoughts that we have. Change can also apply to our relationship with our thoughts, and it is powerful to become less tied to the random thoughts that appear in our head. Let us help you with this! We are passionate about helping people get unstuck and move forward in their lives. Our approach is collaborative and non-judgmental, and includes warmth, compassion and humor.

I will work collaboratively with you to help you understand your problems/concerns and achieve your personal goals using CBT, DBT , and other evidence-based methods that have been.
Stress is an inevitable part of life and aspect of the human condition which, in its unhealthy and extreme forms, can manifest as clinical anxiety, depression, and other problems in living (e.g., substance abuse). Perhaps you have experienced the attendant extremes in thought, behavior, and emotion that are brought about by struggles in modern living but you, like many, have hesitated to ask for help or, after trying various forms of therapy, have not made the progress you expected and you’re questioning whether therapy is right for you. This is where I come into play.

I am part of a team that offers a full Dialectical Behavioral Therapy program that includes skills groups and coaching calls.
My priority first and foremost is to build trust in the client-therapist relationship. It can be challenging to share painful thoughts and emotions with others, so I believe it is a privilege whenever I am allowed into someone’s internal world. I take a holistic and collaborative approach to therapy, working with clients to address life transitions, family or relationship issues, overwhelming emotions, and self-harm. Having worked extensively with ethnically- and gender- diverse populations, I especially enjoy helping adolescents and adults explore their sense of identity and find meaningful roles in their communities.

I address both concerns and strengths with a straight-forward and action-oriented approach while utilizing evidenced-based treatments, such as CBT, DBT , and ACT to help you better cope with life's stressors.
Life can get tough and overwhelming for anyone. You may find yourself wanting to go at it alone and attempt to "stuff" issues such as anxiety, sadness, feeling withdrawn, or relationship problems. I work with my patients to identify specific, well-researched, and concrete tools that can help combat mental health issues and empower them to react with more control, insight, and balance. We'll work as a team to give you the skills you need to gain deeper insights, manage the inevitable barriers you face, and gain more control over your psychological concerns so you can live a better life.

In our clinic, we strongly advocate evidence-based treatment (CBT, DBT , ACT, etc.
I have 3 specialties: sex therapy, sleep treatment, and child/teen mental health. Mind & Body Garden Psychology is a Mandarin-English multicultural group practice with 20+ bilingual therapists, psychiatrists, etc. We provide psychotherapy and neuropsychological assessment services, and see our roles as gardeners. When people come to us seeking support, they may have too many branches of mental blocks and bushes of stress in their lives. What we can do is to help people be more aware of the branches and bushes that impact their quality of life, and then assist them to trim these parts, cope with stress, and live happily.

I utilize DBT and Exposure therapy to help my clients confront their trauma memories while safely processing their emotions about the event.
Anger, shame, anxiety, depression, and perfectionism are emotions and traits that can be caused by trauma. Unresolved trauma can negatively affect our current relationships and family dynamics. My goal as a therapist is to collaborate with you in order to manage trauma-related symptoms and reach a more meaningful state. I utilize a client-centered approach in order to create a safe space for my clients to process unresolved feelings/reactions. Forming a meaningful connection allows us to create a space that welcomes vulnerability, and the therapeutic relationship is just as important as the therapeutic modality.

I mostly utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.
I believe that therapy is a collaborative journey that builds upon one’s personal strengths and goals to find clarity to questions or challenges you may be facing. I believe therapy is a safe space to explore your true identity, and find helpful ways to be your best self. My goal in therapy is to provide you with a safe and comfortable place to process and talk freely and openly about any challenges you may be facing, and work together to find helpful ways to manage them, or at least make them a little less impactful on your well-being.
