You wake up in the morning and can barely open your eyes before the panic hits. Your thoughts begin racing, your heart starts to pound, and you struggle to breathe. Trying to calm yourself down is no use, and you begin to wonder if there’s something physically wrong with you. You hate feeling like you have no control over your emotions. So you move through each day on edge, trying your best to avoid anything that might trigger your anxiety. Hiding behind a shield, never engaging with the outside world. You know there’s more out there for you and want the confidence to embrace everything life has to offer, but you’re scared.

You might be feeling stressed, lost, confused, overwhelmed, or stuck. Your thoughts and emotions feel “too much” that you just want them to stop. Maybe you've had enough of behavior patterns that get in the way of your self and your relationships. Maybe you've experienced life events that hold you back from being your most self. Or maybe you are unsure of where to even start. But here you are open to learning different ways of coping, being, and living. I can provide services for children, teens, and adults for individual, family, or couple sessions.

Beginning therapy can be intimidating, and I provide a comfortable, safe place to begin the process of self discovery and growth. I consider therapy to be a tool for finding and overcoming obstacles to a fulfilling life. I have worked in mental health for over 20 years, and I have extensive experience working with adolescents and adults with eating disorders, grief and loss, depression, life dissatisfaction, and relationship issues. I believe emotional well being is just as important as physical health, and psychotherapy can be an effective way to feel healthier and more satisfied with your life.

Due to a shortage of Asian therapists, I am only accepting Asian descent clients at this time. Please email me. DON'T CALL. I am a trauma-focused, EMDR-certified, clinical registered Art Therapist, and Marriage and Family Therapist. My offering is for those who wish to understand how one’s mind developed and how the body reacts to certain people or situations. The past has shaped our personality and habits, causing difficulty living life at this moment. We will explore past experiences in order to identify the root(s) of the presenting symptoms so that we can be free to have choices and wisdom to take action for a healthier future.

As a psychologist, I allow the space for individuals to gain insight and growth in their lives that help them reach their goals and aspirations. We all encounter challenges, whether it be someone suffering from anxiety and depression, a family who just found out their child has a medical issue, a child with fears, or a teen who has been bullied. During these unfortunate times what is needed is someone to connect with and help you out of this dark cave of distress. One of my greatest strengths has been the ability to connect with others and reveal the ways through this emotional distress.

Everyone experiences some form of incongruence in life. However, when one's life gets disrupted and overwhelmed by conflict, anxiety, trauma, loss, or stress of everyday life, it causes psychological and emotional distress and loss of insight that constrains growth and creativity. Psychotherapy offers a helping relationship that is warm and empathic, where one feels safe and fully received to explore and reflect on incongruences with fresh perspectives and insights. Psychotherapy provides a climate for the individuals to emerge as someone who can fully live and trust one's experience as satisfying in each circumstance.

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.

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.
