Hello! I believe the power of therapy lies in improving your relationship to the world, the people close to you, and ultimately to yourself. I use our relationship as our guide in your journey to heal, transform, and navigate life's challenges. While I provide therapy to people from all walks of life, I especially enjoy working with gay, lesbian, queer, trans, and nonbinary individuals and people of color. In therapy together, we will create an affirming space to understand what's going on for you, reflect on the factors contributing to your current needs, and explore ways to move forward.

The world can often leave us feeling unseen or prompt us to hide parts of ourselves to “fit in.” I’ve noticed this as a person with multiple marginalized identities and I see it within my clients who are part of those communities. We can work together to explore and experiment with how you want to show up. With time, getting to a place that feels genuine and fulfilling.

As a therapist, I want to encourage others to reach out and experience the benefits of therapy. My therapeutic style is rooted in the belief that people are intrinsically valued and are deserving of fundamental human connection; to be seen, to be heard, and to be understood. These fundamental values hold the framework in how I work with the individual. I enjoy working with Asian American individuals who may have conflict with immigrant parents due to cultural and generational differences. Individuals who struggle with self-identity, and reconciling cultural issues and family dynamics.

After over 25 years as a therapist I have pulled together what I have found to be the most effective methods to create change. My approach is interactive, respectful and down-to-earth. When we meet, I will listen carefully, help you clarify your feelings and help you figure out what you can do to make your situation better. We will form specific, achievable goals and our work will be about attaining those goals.

I have more than 20 years experience working with individuals and couples in short term and in longer term in depth psychotherapy. My clients struggle with depression, anxiety, loneliness, relationship challenges, questions around life direction, life purpose, personal identity. Often they report feeling "stuck," frustrated in their creative expression or in their ability to change or move forward in their lives. I try to look at each individual's strengths (ask how we can build upon those), and also look at where a person is getting in his or her own way.

My passion as a mental health clinician is an intentional one: To help navigate your wellness journey in a way that’s effective and authentic. I sincerely believe that no matter what we’ve been through we are in control of how we narrate our lives. It is my goal to help you find and accept your true self. Everyone’s path to recovery is different, which is why I help facilitate growth by creating custom treatment plans designed to reduce symptoms and stabilize mood. I use a comprehensive mental health model that addresses the whole person, including the physical, mental, emotional, and physiological aspects of each client.

I am a psychotherapist with offices in SF and Oakland, treating both adults and couples. I take a relational and collaborative approach to psychotherapy. We are all unique, consciously and unconsciously influenced by the relationships and life-events that leave a lasting impact on how we address our current situation. Difficulties can sometimes arise when the habitual thoughts, emotions, or behaviors that once served us now have us feeling stuck, depressed, and powerless. Fear, ambivalence, compulsivity and patterned thinking can hamper our ability to address the inevitable twists and turns of daily life.

I am a psychoanalyst in private practice in San Francisco. In addition to my clinical work with patients, I also offer consultation for other clinicians and teach and supervise with various psychoanalytic sites in the Bay Area. My writing about the intersection between Buddhism and psychoanalysis has received awards from NCSPP, a local psychoanalytic organization, and APsaA, a national one. I can help guide you in the process of more clearly seeing and navigating your emotional landscape - why you might be prone to anger or worry, why accomplishments feel fleeting, or why things aren't working as you'd like interpersonally.

Therapy is about how you can feel better, how to make your life rich and satisfying. What is in your way? What stops you from being the person you want to be, from living the life you want to live? I see people of all ages, in all walks of life and help them overcome obstacles to acheiving their goals. Often it is inner blocks like anxiety and depression, that stand in your way. Other times there are experiences you've had that make it hard to feel free. Therapy can help you sort it all out, and take positive steps towards a new start.

You don't have to do this alone. Deciding to start therapy takes courage and strength. Sometimes our minds can be so overwhelmed that it's hard to see a path forward. You may feel like you are going from one crisis to the next. So many of us don't even quite know what a better life looks like at the moment. I can help you figure out where to start and how to use therapy as a tool to improve your quality of life. Through tele-health, we can jump into therapy quickly, and you never need to leave the comfort of your couch. Let any anxiety or doubt about starting therapy go and allow yourself the time and space to feel better.

No one ever told you your 20s would suck. Maybe you're feeling lost in your career. Perhaps you feel like it's time to settle down and find "the one", but that "one" is proving to be pretty elusive. No one ever told you becoming a parent would turn your world upside down. Postpartum depression and anxiety are real. You need help transitioning into this new person that you’ve become overnight: a parent. No one ever told you being a child of immigrants could have you juggling expectations of conflicting cultures and never feeling quite "good enough".
