Do you feel like an “Adult Child”? Do you feel stuck? Are you having difficulty navigating Adulthood, and it’s causing you to feel burned out, anxious, lonely, and depressed? Did you follow the rules of our previous generations about what it means to be “successful,” “an Adult,” or “a woman” only to be shackled with student debt, feeling disillusioned, and struggling to define your wants and needs in your life? Do you need help redefining what Adulthood and success mean for you and find meaning in your life? Then this is the place for you!

Usually we don't seek help unless we feel we are in some kind of crisis. With that in mind, I am sorry you are here... And yet, welcome. Welcome to the opportunity you are facing to make this hard time turn into strength, competence, satisfaction, peace and connection with yourself and others. Ideally, that is what good therapy does. You might not have the hope that can happen just yet, but I do. It is my belief that everything good is worth working toward. As a therapist, I will work with you collaboratively toward the goals you prioritize.

You've been walking on egg shells around your child trying to prevent ANOTHER melt down. You're thinking "Why does every tiny thing have to be so hard?" The screaming, crying, whining, hitting, tantrums, name calling... it seems to come out of nowhere, it makes no sense, and it feels out of control. You're thinking "I knew parenting wouldn't always be fun and easy, but is it supposed to be this hard?" You're tired. Your overwhelmed. You're about to lose it. You're not alone. I get it and I'm here to help.

Childhood trauma can cripple us, it creates overpowering ‘intense’ emotions such as anxiety, depression, and anger when left unattended which begins to create physical symptoms to defend our bodies from the internal wounds. Has there ever been a time in your life where you have experienced this reaction? Are you experiencing these feelings based on current or past trauma from childhood, early teens, adolescence, adulthood, or as a senior? I aim to utilize a variety of actionable techniques to help reduce trauma related symptoms and make lasting changes in life.

We all have one lifetime to live, to explore and to experience. It is my belief our past and our present greatly impact the future we will have. As we all know, past experiences cannot be altered. However, it is my firm belief, together, we can explore better ways to deal with our emotions and thoughts that no longer serve us. I specialize in stress and anxiety management, trauma, women issues, depression, relationships as well as concerns specific to Asian-Americans. Please contact me if I can be of service to you. I am here to help. Be well and stay positive. Never give up as I truly believe brighter days are ahead of us!

**I AM NOT CURRENTLY TAKING ON ANY NEW CLIENTS** One thing all have in common as human beings is a natural drive to discover and hold on to a strong sense of self as we navigate the world. When the challenges we face in life cause us to question our identity, this doesn't mean you are broken - it means that you are human.

What type of Torrance mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Torrance?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
