Are you a child, adolescent or adult having difficulty functioning at work, school, or in relationships? Sometimes a history of trauma, self defeating and limiting belief systems interfere with our ability to love, work and play. I can help when old ways of adapting to stressors no longer work. Change is necessary at the mind, body and spiritual level for adaptation to occur. We will work together through your transformation. You can learn new ways to tolerate what has been overwhelming and you can develop new, healthier coping skills to help you manage what was formerly intolerable about daily living.

Are you experiencing, stress, anxiety, feelings of uncertainty, difficulties coping, escalating relationship conflicts, does your performance in what is meaningful to you increasingly feels insufficient, whether at work, school or being a parent, these are all signs that you lost too much contact with your soul. It means you’re so good that you lost contact with yourself. Now let’s work on what will make you whole. Part of this is exploring that you were more than who you think you are, you were more than you know; both inside and outside of you there are more discoveries to be made, too often this process ends prematurely.

Perhaps you are struggling in a relationship, or dealing with the aftermath of a difficult life event. Maybe your child is acting in a way that you don't understand, and you are not sure what to do. You may have a unique cultural experience that you are not sure anyone will understand how to help you navigate. Or maybe you just don't feel right and need help figuring it out.

You are already enough. No holes to be filled. No cracks to be plastered. I get it. Choosing self love can be hard. Everyone needs guidance.You might feel empty and desperate. I know it hurts to live in disconnect between what you are currently going through and what resides outside of you without effort. I know that life feels debilitating at times and you forget to breathe. I know there are parts you don't love. You want to be gentle when doubt visits, when fear obstructs, when control drains, and when loneliness blinds you to your own guiding light. When you are down you deserve support towards self love.

Emotions and thoughts can be overwhelming. They can sometimes feel like a constant, distracting background noise. Clients sometimes compare their brains to "a hamster on a wheel". A noisy brain that is distracting , draining and all too often active at bedtime.

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!

Life post-college has left you feeling stuck. Maybe you're lonely and isolated . . . no thanks to the pandemic. Maybe your first job is super stressful, making you question if you're even in the right field to begin with. Or perhaps social anxiety is making it near-impossible to make friends. Whatever the reason, there's a disconnect between where you pictured yourself at this stage of life and your current reality.

Trauma, anxiety, and addiction can make you feel stuck. The most important step towards healing is to address the unresolved emotion inside you. Healing requires feelings. Acceptance slowly dissolves pain. When we function from the fear and scarring of our trauma, the cycles continue until we learn how to transmute that energy into love. I apply a Holistic approach that integrates physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual forms of well-being, addressing the “whole” self. Through a holistic framework tailored to your unique needs, the goal is to support you develop a deeper understanding of the self on all these levels.

While superbly educated and experienced as a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I always remember that the primary component of any healing I can facilitate is spiritual. I have a background as a creative artist and a community-oriented clinician. I work with children 6 and up, couples, families and individuals regardless of sexual orientation, race, religion, or economic status. I have also done a lot of work with adolescents dealing with substance abuse and adults facing workplace issues.
