Imagine what your life could look like if you felt more in control, self-assured, energetic and hopeful about the future.

What if you had fulfilling, healthy relationships (with your spouse/partner, family, friends, colleagues or children), despite anxiety, changing roles or circumstances, traumatic experiences, addiction or abuse, grief, loss, or guilty feelings? Let me help you heal old wounds and create a life you love living.

My approach to therapy is warm, supportive, and collaborative. I work with my clients to develop a personalized plan to identify and attain their goals, increase self-compassion and self-love, bring awareness to unconscious patterns that are no longer serving them, develop coping skills to better face the challenges of their life and help them create more conscious and fulfilling relationships.

Imagine the freedom of being your anxiety-free self. As an Asian American therapist, I provide culturally appropriate care to address generational trauma, anxiety and depression, unlock unmet needs, discover purpose and find balance in life. Do you feel lost in your thoughts and tied down to responsibilities for others (maybe a partner/spouse, work, family, church or even your child)? Sometimes this causes loss of self and identity, overwhelming anxiety, low self-esteem, perfectionism, depression and dissatisfaction with life. We believe that hardship must be overcome by ourselves, however with time we learn we can't do it alone.

You may be feeling sad, lonely, anxious or depressed. You may sometimes experience a feeling of “hating your life” or thinking that you and your life are false. These emotional feelings cause some people to turn to the use of drugs or alcohol as a form of self medication. No matter how bleak your life seems, help is available. My clinical focus is on Jungian Analysis. Jungian Analysis looks at the unconscious. Using dreams and active imagination, together we will gently explore the source of your spiritual wounding. Together, we seek out your authentic inner voice, and learn to listen to the wisdom of your soul.

FRUSTRATED with the SLOW PACE of others? Having difficulty COMMUNICATING with loved ones? Can't understand IRRATIONAL behavior by a partner or colleagues? Are you accused of being TOO INTENSE, COMPLEX or DRIVEN? These are all ways that intellectually gifted individuals may feel, without understanding what's causing it. Gifted individuals possess an intellectual complexity and emotional intensity that can lead them to experience life in ways qualitatively different from the norm. This can lead to challenges in COUPLES relationships or PROFESSIONAL settings. I have spent over 30 years working with gifted individuals, and am a CERTIFIED EFT COUPLES Therapist.

I help empower people, from women with long term sobriety facing life stage issues to parents struggling with teens. I honor the trust and faith placed on me and am committed to assisting you to THRIVE.

I am a licensed Psychologist in California since Feb 2011. I graduated from UCLA with a Bachelors degree in Psychology. I got my Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology in 2005 from CGI. I am bilingual and have over 15 years of experience in several clinical settings, including: college counseling center, private setting, community outpatient rehab center and in prison mental health facility. I believe psychotherapy is a collaborative process between client and therapist. In this therapeutic journey, the patient will gain insight into their current thought process/outlook, that has resulted in their daily pattern of behaviors/decisions.

You are taking the first steps in creating change in your life. The pursuit of health, happiness, and healing are aspects that we all strive for, and that can be accelerated with additional support and insight oriented therapy. In addition to traditional approaches, such as psychodynamic approaches and cognitive behavioral interventions, I utilize mindfulness techniques, Somatic Experiencing, and EMDR. I have experience in treating a variety of condition, such as depression, anxiety, and trauma. Therapy can assist with stress and change of life issues, such as divorce, new parents, health issues, bereavement, or work/peer conflict.

Are you feeling stuck? unmotivated, bored, procrastinating or generally unhappy? You are not alone. I have worked in the Mental Health and Addictions field for over 24 years. In that time, I have helped hundreds of clients gain perspective and move out of their “stuck” place to a more fulfilling life. I do this by clarifying a client’s vision for themselves, the core values that give their lives meaning and purpose and more importantly, to examine the assumptions that keep us stuck.

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.

I work with clients who often feel not good enough. Who struggle with self doubt and a lack of a strong self-worth. I can help you to strengthen your belief in yourself, your identity, and your self-worth. We all experience sadness and anxiety. And it can paralyze us and block us from experiencing the life we deserve. I can help you live more fully in the present, by healing difficult feelings surrounding your past and by helping you to have the confidence and faith to handle whatever may come your way. I want to help you find hope, to decrease your anxiety, develop a healthier self-esteem, and to experience increased fulfillment.
