Are you a man with problems at work, or your relationships? Do you want things to be different? Then you must do things differently. Usually we solve problems by our efforts, or with the support of friends and family. That is often best. Other times, professional guidance is required. If you want an experienced psychologist who is well informed, practical, compassionate, and collaborative, consider working with me. I am ready to help you help yourself. Just email to arrange a phone consultation without cost or obligation. Please note: I provide online therapy to California men only.

You're feeling generally dissatisfied, like you drew the short straw. You make it look not too bad on the outside, yet feel unfulfilled in relationships with lover, family, friends, coworkers. You have concerns about overdoing something (drinking, working, internet), or a generalized anxiety, perfectionism, or people-pleasing. I am a highly interactive therapist. I know when to bring in humor--and when to go to the dark places with you. Together we will look at how you got here. Through identifying your beliefs, attitudes and needs around relationships and intimacy, we will find the key to unlocking your wellbeing.

Are you an anxious women that struggles with perfectionism? Do you ever feel paralyzed by your anxiety which causes you to succumb to your emotions, leaving you burnt out & exhausted? Maybe you've felt lonely and desired a support system with a therapist who truly understands & empathizes with your current challenges. You're craving more time for self-growth & personal development in your life. You're done being the people pleaser who feels like you always put others needs before your own & avoids setting boundaries because you feel undeserving. You feel overwhelmed in your nervous system and long to have fulfilling relationships.

I believe the relationships with those we care about -family members, friends, co-workers, and romantic partners - form a significant portion, even a majority, of our lifelong happiness and sense of fulfillment. Our relationship experiences influence our self-perception, confidence, and feelings of security. Many of us seek therapy because we have difficulty identifying, understanding, or coping with our own (and significant others') emotional experiences, and we feel unequipped to communicate our feelings and needs to the important people in our lives.

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.

I work with Asian American individuals and couples around relationship issues. Most of my clients are thriving in their careers, but they want more. They want meaningful and deep connections. They want to be seen and accepted for who they are. But as Asians living in the US, being seen and understood is often complicated by cultural misunderstandings, holding conflicting values and identities, communication differences, prejudice and racism, intergenerational trauma, and immigration issues.

What type of San Francisco 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, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in San Francisco?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider 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.
