I bring expertise in addiction/substance use and abuse; couples and family relationship work including divorce/blended families; chronic illness ; helping young adult and adolescent women and men struggling with relationships; and therapists coping with the stress of their jobs and/or family relationships.
I offer psychotherapy to families, couples and individuals. People come to therapy for different reasons, whether it be a life changing event or just needing support.

My approach is collaborative, non-judgmental and supportive and I am very down to earth and personable. I work with people from diverse backgrounds and ages and I am knowledgeable and affirming of open or non-monogamous relationship. I truly love the work that I do.

Thank you for taking the time for yourself to understand how therapy can help aid and assist you at this time in your life. I hope that I can give you a sense of myself and style and how I may be a good fit in supporting you in such a process. In my private practice, I specialize in working with individual adults, older teens, and couples. I practice from a psychodynamic and relational modality in which I am mindful of where you come from and the ways in which you have learned to adapt to each environment and relationship around you, including the relationship that we form. I also enjoy integrating mindfulness practice.

I believe our emotional and physical health are inseparable. In psychotherapy, we will explore how your brain, emotions, body, and spirituality work together in creating moment-by-moment experiences within you. My background in neuropsychology and psychotherapy will guide our work in an integrated and holistic framework. As a registered psychological assistant (PSB 94026544) supervised by Dr. Rebecca Crabb (PSY 23603), I offer individual psychotherapy and cognitive remediation for adults (age 18-64), in English, Cantonese and Mandarin. Currently, I provide teletherapy services only, to residents of California.

Many of the people I work with find their way to me because they feel lost, broken or hopeless. In my San Francisco psychotherapy practice I tend to work well with people who have exhausted all of their go-to strategies and are in search of something deeper that will lead to the long lasting change they desire. Likely you have worked hard at developing an external image that may have gotten you far socially and professionally but internally there is a deep sense that you are irrevocably lost at sea, unlovable or useless.

I believe that lasting changes occur through profound self-understanding and awareness. This can be achieved through a collaborative relationship where we talk and think together to gain insights and meanings. My role is to provide a safe environment where a trusting relationship can be built. By listening to your stories, I will help you process the thoughts and feelings that emerge in order to develop a deeper understanding of your past traumas, inner conflicts, and destructive patterns. These newfound insights will then guide you to make changes in your current relationships or life situations.

Despite being outwardly successful, internally you're struggling with a sense that something is amiss, even if you can't pinpoint exactly what. You may be experiencing burnout, 'imposter syndrome,' or a harsh inner critic; feeling unsatisfied in your work or relationships; or going through a major life challenge (such as illness, divorce, grief or new parenthood). Regardless of what brings you in, you don’t have to go through this alone.

People can feel stuck in their lives for many reasons. You may have vague feelings of dissatisfaction, or have an idea of what isn’t working but struggle to find a way forward. Perhaps you're feeling overwhelmed by familiar feelings from earlier difficulties or trauma that are being stirred up by current situations. My aim is to help you uncover the meanings and underlying causes of patterns of thinking, feeling, and interacting that may be holding you back. These can emerge in addressing day-to-day challenges, or while untangling old narratives formed by deeply rooted experiences.

I view psychotherapy as a joint venture in which we work collaboratively to reach your goals. My style is direct, transparent and positive, warm, interactive and nonjudgemental. I create the safety needed within our relationship to allow us to explore the issues that underlie depression, anxiety, loneliness, lack of fulfillment and other concerns. As a therapist I follow your lead. With over two decades of experience I work diligently to understand each individual, employing elements of psychoanalytic, mindfulness and cognitive behavioral theories to create an approach that best suits the unique individual with whom I am working.

Chronic pain doesn't just hurt physically. It touches every aspect of our lives, from the personal to the professional. Our relationships, our work, our hobbies and interests, and even our basic human needs can end up on the back burner while we struggle to manage our pain symptoms. Over time, our lives feel like they're shrinking, as pain robs us of the things that matter most. It's no surprise that chronic pain sufferers end up experiencing anxiety, depression, substance use issues, and insomnia up to four times the rate of people who are pain free.

Do other therapists seem judgmental? Don't understand? Won't listen to you? If you need to talk about anything and everything, clients tell me I have a strong capacity for compassion, empathy, and care. At the same time, I’m forthright and candid. I see you and hear you—a whole person (body, mind, spirit) living in an interactive and interconnected world. I believe you're the expert in you--even if you're not yet aware of it. My role is to help you find that, and bring my own holistic vision, experience, training, expertise, and tools to the table, so you can work to be the best possible version of you.
