I also work with couples to improve communication and increase intimacy, especially when partners come from different cultural backgrounds and hold different values.
Therapy isn’t easy — but it doesn’t have to be joyless. If you’re looking for a therapist who can delve into the dark stuff with both the compassionate support and the sense of humor that it deserves, you’ve come to the right place. I work with women and LGBTQ+ folks on a range of issues, from managing depression and anxiety, to improving self-esteem, to healing from a past trauma or loss. Many of my clients have experienced violence in an intimate relationship, and I have specialized training to support survivors of domestic violence so that they can move forward in their lives and their relationships with others.

I find it effective to combine behavioral solutions with depth work. Since the unconscious ripples into all aspects of life, I have found that relational therapy addressing unconscious motives can help with most psychological difficulties. In addition to working with individuals, couples & families, I am adjunct faculty at the California Institute of Integral Studies where I teach in the Masters in Counseling Psychology Department and Psychological Services Clinic.

If you’re searching for change in your relationships, mental wellness or your use of substances, my focus is using the latest in neuroscience to get you there. I keep up with the latest findings on the brain and the mind and weave it into my therapy approach. I use as many of the advances as possible to change clients’ anxiety, stress and depression. I approach therapy as a collaboration between me and the individual or couple. What works best for the individual or the couple is what I emphasize. I offer articles, books and blogposts for couples and clients to use and refer to in between sessions to enhance the work we’re doing.

I love working with highly motivated couples and individuals who are ready to do the hard work of healing. Maybe you’ve spent years getting degrees or a dream job at the expense of connection to others. Perhaps alcohol or drugs helped you cope for a while but they’ve created some problems of their own. The pressure to succeed can be traumatic and distance you from those you love. I want to help you realign to succeed in life and love!

I work with adults, adolescents and couples in a patient, respectful and collaborative way to understand and work through underlying dynamics which may be outside awareness.
In pain and struggle are also resilience, strength and even opportunity. Engaging in a therapeutic relationship is an act of courage and hope that can lead to relief and lasting change. You may be experiencing loneliness, relationship issues, anxiety, depression, low self esteem, loss, creative blocks or the effects of trauma and oppression. Maybe you are just not where you would like to be in your life. Therapy can help to create a more fulfilling life in part by deepening self knowledge, increasing resilience and mitigating the effects of early life experiences.

I offer warm and compassionate individual and couples therapy services. I am here to meet you, wherever you are in your process of internal discovery. I will provide a safe space for you to show up to gain practical tools and to build a greater understanding of your internal states. My background as a wxman who is both First-Generation and Fifth-Generation-American has given me strong insight into what it means to straddle cultures, identities, and inconsistencies. If you have experienced the feeling of “not belonging” in a society that values binary labels, I may be the right fit for you.

My adult and couples clients seek me out for many reasons. Some want to make changes in their lives. Others feel weighed down by difficult emotions, relationships, or past experiences. Some just want to better understand themselves and how to find meaning. My work is a collaborative process, rooted in theory and research, that creates meaningful, lasting change. I've helped clients with professional stress, challenging relationships, mood difficulties (anxiety, depression), challenges adjusting to new life stages/change, medical illness, substance use, a desire to build mindfulness skills, or simply feeling “stuck” and uncreative.

I understand psychotherapy as a collaborative process. I practice listening deeply, with curiosity and respect, to support my clients’ innate capacity for self-awareness, growth, and well-being.

I am an individual, couples , and family therapist who specializes in complex trauma and relationship issues, especially in immigrant and cross-cultural families. I believe that the distress you experience makes sense in the context of your early experiences, your family history, and the systems we live in. The issues bringing you to therapy may be related to stressors you’re facing right now as well as things you've been feeling for a long time. ​Asking for help is vulnerable and courageous, and you've already taken the first step.

Couples hit roadblocks.
Addiction causes everyone to swirl around it, like circling a drain. How would you like to keep loving your partner or family member, but not be sucked into shaping your life around them? If you are the person with addiction, how would you like to feel free? I can help you learn to float and not be dragged down. Breathe fresh air. Become a master swimmer. I understand that suffocating feeling, and work with you to help you find yourself again, whether you are the family member or the person with addiction.

My role as a therapist is to help you reach your potential. I work with individuals and couples who want to feel more connected and fulfilled in their relationships. Often what holds people and relationships back is a pattern of unhelpful thoughts, behaviors and interactions. Identifying these patterns and developing strategies to overcome them can empower you to get unstuck and move toward your goals. I support couples to gain the insight and skills to overcome conflict, improve communication and find connection. I help individuals grow in awareness, heal from the past and conquer the barriers keeping them from the life they want.

Is one or more of your kids on the Spectrum or have the ASD/ADD/OCD triad? In your relationship, is one of you on the spectrum and one not and is that causing misunderstandings and problems? Are you on the spectrum and having trouble understanding the non-spectrum people and world around you? I can help you bridge differences and deal with conflicts and meltdowns in an empathetic and constructive way. Also, I work for with LGBTQ people and couples with a variety of mental health concerns like anxiety and depression. It's hard growing up different from your peers. It can cause low self esteem, crippling self doubt and anger.
