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.

I've enjoyed working with BIPOC, and as a child of Vietnamese refugees, I have particular insight into the Asian -American experience.
I'm a therapist of color creating a space for Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) as it may often feel like traditional spaces weren’t created with you in mind…including therapeutic spaces. There are biases that lean toward values that aren't congruent with yours, which makes it difficult to be seen and heard for all of your intersectional identities. Healing can occur in myriad ways: through community, education, personal expression, or therapy. The therapy space I've created is free of judgement and oppressive values.

My specialties include complex trauma, childhood abuse/neglect, healing from narcissistic/abusive relationships, codependency and relationship problems, substance use disorders, masculinity and men's issues, couples therapy, and working with Asian American/minority issues such as family conflict, intergenerational trauma, cultural identity & racism.
Though I work with most issues, I specialize in helping people recover from complex trauma. People with narcissistic, abusive, or neglectful parents or partners sometimes develop issues with trusting themselves, have difficulty maintaining close relationships, struggle with an inner critic, vacillate often between depression and anxiety, lack a solid sense of identity, or feel a sense of emptiness when their lives seem great on paper. Sometimes that trauma can even become part of one's identity - I work with clients to build insight, boundaries, self-compassion, and acceptance to free themselves from it & live more fulfilling lives.

By working together, I will help you to build on your strengths and expand your skills to not only cope with the obstacles in life, but to optimize your well-being and to reach for your full potential.

As a bicultural therapist, I also have expertise in Asian American issues, immigrant/refugee mental health, minority stress, imposter syndrome, family/intergenerational conflict, and racial/cultural identity concerns.
Feeling stuck, emotionally overwhelmed, or struggling in your relationships? Are you suffering from self-doubt and thoughts of never being “good enough?" Is anxiety preventing you from pursuing the things that matter? As a therapist, I aim to help you gain insight into your emotional experience, build effective coping skills, and work through deep-rooted patterns to pursue a life of healing and fulfillment. My approach is evidence-based and culturally sensitive; I value the spectrum of human diversity and am attentive to social justice issues as well as the systemic factors that can impact one's sense of self and well-being.

In my 8+ years as a therapist, I have worked with several Asian American adult children of immigrants who experience painful conflicts within their family of origin that lead to separation or estrangement. I help you to find your own voice, and break out of repetitive patterns of living that result in feeling stuck in a familiar yet painful place. Among other things, we speak about the role of cultural divide, parental pressure and control, and intergenerational trauma. We examine the impact of these early relationships on how you relate to others and yourself.

As a queer Asian therapist holding both privileged and oppressed identities, I value diversity and honor each individual's unique identities and strengths.
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.

Psychologist, PhD

I have experience working with depression, anxiety, grief, life transitions, relationship issues, self-wellness, South Asian families and the bi-cultural pressures, children of divorce and various teen concerns.
I engage with each person as an individual that requires a unique set of skills specifically altered to address your personal sources of distress. I offer a safe, non-judgmental, compassionate and supportive environment so that you can create the change you are seeking. There are times in our lives when we struggle with the most valuable relationships in our lives. It helps to be able to reflect together, problem-solve toward solutions and ways of coping with someone who can remain objective and supportive. I believe a strong therapeutic relationship is important in order to grow in therapy.

In addition, Michael specializes in working with Asian Americans and their families; addressing issues that are unique to them.
We live in a culture that is constantly pushing us to strive for perfection. Whether in school, work, or our everyday lives, the need to constantly achieve can put great strain on our self and those we care about. This can lead to chronic depression or anxiety, social isolation, feelings of inadequacy, or even thoughts of suicide. It is hard to break out of this culture. It is hard to find flexibility of thought and a space to feel like we are good enough. Yet, through compassionate acceptance and practical skill building I can help.

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.

Are you not feeling like your usual self? Are stress, work, family pressure, relocation and/or COVID overwhelming you? Is there just way too much going on? If you'd like to feel more calm, more relaxed, less upset, and more happy - let's chat. Sometimes our brain won't turn off and stop worrying, sometimes it is difficult to get out of bed or get a good night's rest, other times it is tough to buckle down and focus. Therapy can help - even if you're not sure how. I see mental health as part of one's overall wellness. My approach focuses not just on having fewer negative emotions, but also on experiencing more positive emotions.

You are determined, smart and used to navigating challenges but living life in a pandemic in addition to all the personal stressors is weighing on you. Normally you could handle this yourself or push the worry away but bigger questions are arising and you are left feeling overwhelmed, lost in ambivalence, stressed, and not sure what can help. You feel like your dreams and what you have worked for are slipping away and it's impacting your life & relationships. This may be triggering lots of painful or scary feelings, memories from your past, not feeling like yourself or the idea that now is the time to make real change.
