My clients often show up to therapy because of a need for meaningful change in their lives, and a desire to feel happier and more fulfilled. You may find yourself struggling with self-doubt and a harsh, critical inner voice; feeling stuck, sad, far away, and disconnected; navigating a new or difficult circumstance such as death of a loved one; or wanting help to reduce conflict and improve communication with your partner. I see therapy as an opportunity for transformative insight, creativity, self-expression, and healing. It is a place to process and move past the painful experience that stick with us and hold us back.

I help high-achieving sensitive people from immigrant and other diverse backgrounds connect more to their authentic selves and thrive. You are a high performer---maybe even the go-to person for other people. Perhaps you identify as an introvert, empath/HSP, creative, changemaker, or healer. You feel deeply, and are concerned about others. Outwardly, you’ve held it together, worked hard to keep others happy. But inside, you're exhausted, frustrated with yourself and others, feeling unseen. You don’t have to do this work alone, amidst the existential grief of the pandemic and persisting inequalities. I'm here for you. I can relate.

Throughout our lives, we all have experienced feelings of depression, anxiety, and anger. These emotions leave you feeling insecure, shameful, lonely, unworthy and stuck in unhealthy patterns of behavior. Trauma can have negative emotional and physical effects and can lead to family/relationship issues. I specialize in solution-focused brief therapy, motivational interviewing, mindfulness and CBT. These approaches allow me to work with the client to decrease symptoms of anxiety and depression and other health/behavioral issues.

Our life experiences can lead us to question our identity and purpose in the world we live in. This can lead us to anxiety, depression, and trauma. Do you want to improve how you face challenges, function in your relationships, and face overwhelming feelings? I place heavy importance on addressing trauma. Trauma disintegrates the parts that make up your whole self, which can leave aspects of who you are hidden from your awareness. Left unaddressed, anxiety and depression can worsen, which can rob you of the necessary connection that all human beings need to thrive. I aim to help you process unresolved trauma.

Shame is a near universal experience for LGBTQ people. Working with a LGBTQ therapist is a profound way to heal from shame. I founded the Gay Therapy Center in 2015 because I knew from my own experience that it can be especially healing and powerful to work with a therapist who shares part of your own LGBTQ identity. Knowing that your therapist has lived parts of your experience helps you to build a strong, trusting relationship in therapy. We’ve become the largest private provider of LGBTQ-affirmative therapy with offices in San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York, Washington, DC, and worldwide via video conferencing.

I work with people who are looking for support in cultivating the fulfilling and sustainable life they want to live. The impact of stressors on your mind and body - which might include burnout, executive dysfunction, disordered sleep, a difficult relationship with substances or social media, anxiety, or depression - can be overwhelming. Over the course of your life you’ve developed a set of strategies that have helped you accomplish so much, but you may still feel stuck in a pattern or a cycle that isn’t serving you. My role is to support you in creating the conditions you need for your well-being and joy.

A lot of us have a hard time asking for help. Fear, shame, or needing to be self-sufficient are feelings that can get in the way of recognizing when we need help--and reaching out and asking for it. My approach to therapy creates a safe place where sensitive, painful or scary feelings can be openly explored without judgment. We form a partnership to figure out what is going on and how to move forward. I'm actively engaged in our work--it's a partnership, after all--to help you overcome problem behaviors and develop better ways of coping.
