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!

With 32 years of working with individuals and families, I specialize in helping people make changes/progress with depression, anxiety, marital discord, parenting, and other life challenges. As a therapist, I take a nonjudgemental approach in helping people take control of their lives. Some things to ask yourself: Are you dealing with anxiety, depression, or another life challenge? Does your child/adolescent need assistance in expressing feelings? Does your child/adolescent push the limits? Have you and your spouse grown apart? Becoming stronger as an individual/family and strengthening boundaries and roles are my number one goals.

Life is unpredictable and often throws trials that we weren’t expecting. To combat this I work with children, teens and adults to heal and grow. Whether it is dealing with sadness, anxiety, life transitions or parenting concerns, everyone deserves someone to talk to. Many times when we leave these problems unresolved they compound and hurt other areas of life.

Although some days seem fine, you find yourself thinking about something and you can't seem to stop. You feel down, even hopeless at times. Memories and thoughts make it difficult to fall asleep or stay asleep at night. You find yourself avoiding places, people, or things that make you feel uncomfortable, fearful, or anxious. You may have difficulty concentrating at work or school and being present with yourself or others. By identifying, processing, and addressing what is causing your discomfort, we can work toward feeling whole, at peace, and empowered to live the life that you want for yourself again.

Therapy is a powerful tool that can foster self awareness, insight and relief from anxiety and depression. Making the decision to seek guidance is the first step towards meeting your goals and limiting behavior that may be sabotaging your success. I feel it's important to create a rich understanding of past experiences and current choices so that patterns can be illuminated, identified and brought to Iight. I find that when one becomes aware of these patterns, they develop the power and confidence to move forward.

The best psychotherapy is tailored to the individual, not limited by a single theory or point of view. All the evidence on psychotherapy confirms that the most important contribution to success is the therapeutic relationship. As an experienced practitioner I know this to be true. I practice using approaches that are integrated and tailored for each person and situation. Whatever perspectives are found to be helpful, I consistently attend to providing a relationship that is safe, mutual, nonjudgmental, and non-controlling. It is an accepting relationship built on mutual understanding and evolving trust that helps us all.

I enjoy nurturing my client's self-confidence to help them move towards greater authenticity, mindfulness, and joy.

People often reach a decision to begin psychotherapy because they feel that they have been struggling with or trying to ignore some behavioral or emotional difficulty and have reached a point where they want this to change. Such difficulties begin to affect other parts of one’s physical or emotional life, thought patterns, relationships, and work. Often the consequences of such struggles coupled with ineffective coping strategies, leads one to feel helpless and hopeless. This is a critical point where change is needed.

Are you interested in direct feedback and skills that you can bring home and do something with? Do you need to be called out every once in a while? If you need more interaction than someone who nods knowingly and repeats everything you say back to you, I am a good fit for you. I don't believe therapy should be a mystical process. Therapy is a tool that is designed to help you navigate the murky waters, feel connected to all of your emotions, and help challenge behaviors that may have once served you and no longer do.

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, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Torrance?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider 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.
