Things I work with in my practice: Relationship issues , anxiety, depression, addiction recovery, the impact of a frenetic, fast paced life, work and career issues, the impact of medical issues, spiritual issues, and the development of well-being and happiness.
If you're feeling anxious about the state of things these days and would like to talk, I am meeting with people remotely via phone and video. Therapy is a conversation in which you can discuss the most complex and sensitive subjects. Together we reach an understanding of what you're experiencing by sorting through your thoughts and feelings.

I have great compassion for the human struggle and I don't want you to feel alone with it.... It's far easier with another person who cares and understands. I've spent my whole life studying psychology: Formally, at Stanford (BA), at UC Berkeley (MA, PhD), and ongoing Continuing Education; informally, from colleagues, clients, and 20+ years in private practice. I enjoy working with people from all walks of life. I'm open, empathic, authentic, interested and interactive. I like helping people with relationship difficulties, life transitions, anxiety, grief, self-criticism, social inhibitions, and emotional trauma, abuse, or neglect.

I support clients in connecting with feelings and authentic selves to build a more balanced relationship with others and oneself.
We encounter many transitions in our lives. Transitions often come with intense life events such as moving to a new country, going through a divorce/breakup or losing a loved one. They also come at different stages of life like being an adolescent, entering adulthood or experiencing aging. We can feel depressed, anxious, frustrated and lost. I believe transitions provide an opportunity to re-examine ourselves and explore life’s meaning. Together we address issues of identities, relationships, grief, loneliness, cross-cultural experiences and traumas.

I work predominately with couples who are having relationship issues .
Do you feel like communication between you and your partner is difficult? Do you find yourself in repetitive fights? Does it seem like these patterns are unlikely to change? Do you long to laugh more, share more, have more sex, and be able to tell your partner everything? Being close and feeling secure with your partner is a basic need that has been shown to increase longevity and decrease stress.

In an open and collaborative way, we can explore what brings you to therapy - mood swings, worries, behavior patterns, relationship issues , job demands.
Are you feeling overwhelmed, stuck, or just going through the motions without much joy? Have you been trying to help yourself, but only finding superficial relief? Are you ready to delve into what’s really bothering you - to name it clearly, understand why it’s happening, and work toward lasting change? Often when we examine symptoms or responses that are causing us distress, we discover that they actually serve important functions. From this perspective, we can develop a kinder, more balanced internal dialogue and focus less on protecting ourselves from pain and more on living a full, authentic life.

I am dedicated to helping young professionals overcome the obstacles standing between them and the lives that they want to live. Many young adults report feeling “stuck” in at least one area of their lives. This can include recurring problematic relationship patterns, difficulty finding motivation at work, or chronic feelings of failure despite their objective success.

Concerning relationship issues , most of my individual clients and couples struggle in a extremely common patter of conflict characterized by one partner feeling unimportant, ignored, and/or hurt while the other partner feeling nagged, criticized, and/or guilty.
In addition to working extensively with anxiety issues, I specialize in helping clients improve their relationships with their partners/spouses. I wholeheartedly welcome both straight and LGBT clients into my practice. I often tell clients that everything makes perfect sense (ie. the problems they share and how they react), and all we need to do is find the right pieces of the puzzle to help them understand. It is from this understanding that relief and solutions arise. By truly understanding what anxiety is an isn't, we learn how to navigate it so it doesn't control our lives.

What do you want to accomplish in therapy? A lot of people want to have less of something: anxiety, depression, anger, relationship conflict, and so forth. This is understandable. When things hurt us and get in our way, even if those things come from inside us, it’s very reasonable to want them to go away. But what if making thing go away has been the problem all along? Can you remember a time in your life when you felt strong, resilient, and resourceful? During this time, was your life free from problems? I’m guessing not. Bu you were probably were moving your feet in the direction of things that mattered to you at the time.

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.

Practicing and learning new ways of thinking, reacting, and understanding are possible within the safety of a therapy relationship in which old beliefs are challenged and new ones are tested. Practicing new behaviors is easier when you understand why you needed the old one and feel ready to try the new. I am interactive and respectful of each person's uniqueness. Psychotherapy can be a deeply moving experience as well as transformative, and I can help you address and transform the inner beliefs and interpersonal difficulties that sabotage your success in love, friendship, and work. Years of experience have seasoned me as a clinician.

Common concerns I treat are anxiety, perfectionism, self-doubt, feeling unfulfilled, feeling hopeless and lost, lacking clarity on your personal values or purpose, relationship issues , transition issues, and career confusion.
I specialize in treating adults in their 20's and 30's. Most of my clients have the things that they believe constitute a good life (secure jobs, close friend groups, active social lives, etc) yet they continue to feel anxious, lost, sad, unfulfilled, burned out, and perplexed by what their purpose on this earth really is. Additionally, many of them experience significant distress caused by an endless drive towards achievement rather than fulfillment and a self-defeating pattern of comparing themselves to others.

My focuses include issues related to depression, anxiety, troubles finding or staying in a relationship , perfectionism, self-harm behavior, and parent/child relationship ruptures.
*PLEASE NOTE: I am not accepting new patients until January 2023 due to being on leave from my online practice. If you’re interested in online therapy and that doesn’t feel too far away, I welcome a message from you then. I recognize the courage required to begin or return to psychotherapy. There is tremendous value in exploring ourselves honestly and in a protected space. Such a space seems hard to come by these days. I work best with people who possess a genuine curiosity about themselves and those who recognize that sustainable change takes time and effort.

Relationship Issues Therapists
While need for human connection appears to be innate, the ability to form healthy, loving relationships is learned. Some evidence suggests that the ability to form a stable relationship starts to form in infancy, in a child's earliest experiences with a caregiver who reliably meets the infant's needs for food, care, warmth, protection, stimulation, and social contact. Such relationships are not destiny, but they are theorized to establish deeply ingrained patterns of relating to others. The end of a relationship, however, is often a source of great psychological anguish.

If you're looking for a Barbary Coast, San Francisco relationship therapist, these professionals provide relationship therapy and counseling in Barbary Coast, San Francisco.
