I'm also passionate about supporting women through pregnancy / postpartum journeys.
I can help you make changes in your life. I work with adults, couples, families and children to address stress, emotion and identity. I provide a nonjudgmental, safe and supportive space for you to explore stuck and challenging relationships, alter unproductive thoughts and behavior patterns and navigate transitions in your life. While therapy doesn't have all the answers, working together on some of these issues can help you to feel more empowered. I enjoy working with LGBTQ families, those who identify as polyamorous, and women of all shapes and sizes.

I specialize in working with 1.5 - 2nd generation immigrants on issues such as anxiety, work stress, perinatal mental health and cultural identity issues. I want to learn how your unique environment and experiences have shaped who you are today and the challenges that may occur as a result. I tend to be very active and engaged in sessions with my clients and enjoy discussing practical tools that may be helpful. Let's talk about the hard stuff, learn to accept things we can't change and try to feel joy as often as we can.

Adjustments to infertility, pregnancy , birth, parenting and changes in identity, role, relationship can be overwhelming and exhausting.
My experience as a licensed therapist, nurse and midwife, has provided me the unique perspective and understanding of the needs of the Whole Individual and how thoughts and beliefs impact us physically, emotionally and psychologically. My intention is to support and guide clients as they explore and resolve their challenges. Together, we can work through feelings of confusion, insecurity and fear associated with significant individual and relationship transitions, crisis events and medical and emotional challenges. Online therapy is available with office sessions in the future.

My patients face various challenges, including relationship troubles, traumatic experiences, life transitions, including pregnancy /parenting, questions about gender/sexuality, identity concerns, grief/loss, and physical ailments.
You're looking for a therapist and you're wondering if I might be a good fit. It might help to know that I'm a straightforward, perceptive, and non-judgmental practitioner. The therapy I provide is not one-size-fits-all, but instead is collaborative and customized to your specific needs and way of being. I'll ask questions and engage in dialogue with you throughout the process. By providing thoughtful, individual focus to you as you tackle patterns of living that no longer work, we'll discover new areas for growth and healing.

With regards to grief and trauma work, I have extensive experience working with individuals who have experienced a pregnancy loss from an abortion and termination for a fetal diagnosis (and those anticipating such decisions), miscarriage , early stillbirth, selective reduction, ectopic pregnancy , or other causes.
I offer you an empathetic, direct, and practical presence in your journey towards healing. After becoming a physician (I am a licensed Obstetrician Gynecologist), I discovered another calling of mine is working with people and their emotions. As a therapist who is also a physician, I bring knowledge and wisdom of medicine, the body, and the mind-body connection. With this background, I offer you a unique, experienced, and well-rounded therapist. (For safety reasons, I am currently only offering online therapy sessions.)

Individuals I enjoy working with include perinatal and postpartum mothers, young adults and professionals, working professionals, Asian Americans, and people of color (BIPOC).
If you've stumbled upon my page, you're likely seeking emotional support and helpful skills to navigate life's challenges. Perhaps you've been feeling stuck, anxious, overwhelmed, or disconnected to your work, relationships, or even yourself. This can be very painful to navigate alone. In therapy with me, you can work through negative thinking patterns or habits, common stressors, and allow room for acceptance of things you cannot control. In therapy, you can gain new skills as we talk through your lived experience. Your story is unique, so we will work together to navigate treatment goals that can improve your quality of life.

I have a special interest in working with relationship issues, behavioral issues, parenting, divorce/separation/remarriage/single parenthood, and medical issues (cancer, infertility, postpartum depression, and type 1 diabetes to name a few).
Feelings and thoughts, at times, may be difficult to manage. Anxiety, depression, painful entanglements, behavioral issues, and the lingering effects of damaging experiences can exhaust us. They may also interfere with relationships and affect behaviors. Finding meaning in difficult emotions and life events can be very helpful. My hope is to provide understanding and insight that creates a safe relationship and develops a sensible model for people to discover potentially destructive patterns, what really matters to them, and how one can live a more creative, flexible, and full life.

Self-discovery is a process that can be both incredibly challenging and tremendously rewarding. Sometimes we seek it out and often it finds us through painful and uncomfortable symptoms or experiences. A few of these that I see in my practice include relationship challenges, anxiety, depression, health issues and blocks to self-expression. As a parent, I also work with postpartum moms and new parents as they navigate parenthood. Challenging experiences can lead to powerful healing and profound change. I believe in this process because it revolutionized my own life. I am honored to accompany others in their version of this process.

Additionally, I specialize in working with interracial and mixed-heritage couples, as well as couples who are family planning, undergoing infertility treatment, or grieving a pregnancy loss.
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.

Road to motherhood can be frustrating and challenging. Perhaps you are thinking about fertility treatments, IVF, IUI, or adoption. Maybe it has been a difficult road with miscarriages, unsuccessful egg retrievals or using a surrogate. It can be an overwhelming place to try to start a family, while encountering road bumps along the way. After the baby comes, we may experience exhaustion, sadness and even even a sense of isolation from our partner, friends and family. Growing a family takes a village.

My psychotherapy practice focuses on women's mental health, with an eye towards the multiple, and often competing, roles that we navigate throughout a lifetime. My approach is to listen attentively for what is needed so that we can work together to create your experience. Rather than "cure" you, I will support you with safety and warmth and offer you the tools to lead your life with intention, dignity and self-determination. My focus includes anxiety and depression, reproductive, intergenerational and complex trauma, familial relationships as well as racial & cultural identity.

Are you a person trying to explore your gender, race, or sexuality? Do you struggle to communicate your needs, set boundaries, and be assertive? I challenge you to speak your truth, understand yourself, and be authentic while maintaining boundaries. I use humor and a strong therapeutic relationship to help you be your ideal, most grounded self. When I think about transforming and changing one's life, I always reflect on Audre Lorde's powerful words. "What are the words you do not yet have...Next time, ask: What's the worst that will happen? Then push yourself a little further than you dare. "

We often find ourselves and bodies, on the path towards health after overwhelming experiences, trauma, grief or loss. Re-igniting our inner-fire and natural emotional balance can understandably be a challenge. Trauma-informed somatic psychotherapy can help! I take my role as a therapist, one who supports the client On their journey, as a facilitator of a sacred collaboration. I conduct therapy with an intention to process and move trauma (anxiety, depression and grief accompanying it) in order to restore balance between the mind, body, and spirit and reignite the internal fire.

My approach is interpersonal, both psychodynamically and existentially informed. I have been in practice for over 20 years. In my early years, I was supervised by Dr. Irvin Yalom, and he has been highly influential in my work. I believe my strengths include an ability to genuinely connect with patients in an empathic and non-judgmental manner. I help my patients explore deeper issues and patterns underlying persistent unhappiness, as well as navigate life's hurdles that may feel overwhelming.
