My treatment specialties include pregnancy loss and infertility, chronic pain/illnesses, sexual abuse and trauma, women's issues , and anxiety/depression.
My personal philosophy is that a primary purpose of therapy is to help people to become more complete and authentic versions of themselves. In each of us lies pieces of ourselves which require healing in order to become cohesive and integrated. Some pieces have been internally bruised by the pain of depression or anxiety. Other pieces have been hidden in the shadows of fear or trauma. These pieces will continue to impair daily life and self-actualization, true growth, and progress, until they are addressed and treated. Luckily, therapy can help to heal and integrate all parts of the self.

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.

We face myriad of relational and emotional challenges from childhood to adult years. When the right support to deal with these challenges is not available to us, we compensate by activating parts of our Self that may manifest themselves as anxiety, depression, trauma reactions, compulsive behaviors, etc. As a result, relationships with our others, as well as with ourselves, are affected. My goal is to guide you through healing these parts leading to a self who is more emotionally aware and connected. You will learn to live with more harmony in the present, and build stronger 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.

We all feel lost from time to time, but there’s always light at the end of the tunnel. I’ve been through my own therapy as a young adult when I was stuck in a bout of anxiety and panic attacks due to childhood trauma. Throughout my years of working with traumatized individuals, I learned first-hand about how childhood trauma can have a strong impact on adulthood. I can help you address unresolved trauma, in order for you to find passion, connection, and purpose in your life.

Maybe you struggle to feel confident using your voice. You question your feelings: Why do I feel this way? Is it OK to feel this way? Often times putting others ahead of ourselves leads us to feel burned out, anxious, and depressed. I will work with you to help gain a better understanding of yourself, your patterns, your hurts, and your strengths. I enjoy nurturing my client's self-confidence to help them move towards greater authenticity, mindfulness, and joy.

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.

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.

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.

Life is beautiful and yet life can also be complex and complicated. Navigating through natural life stages, relationships, uncomfortable family dynamics, parenting struggles, career choices, the loss of loved ones as well as adverse life experiences may cause you to feel as though you are swept into a storm of unsettling emotions. You may feel overwhelmed, anxious, angry, irritable, confused, sad or simply exhausted and without clear direction on your next steps. Gaining an understanding of your thoughts, feelings, needs and desired outcomes to situations you are facing will assist you as you navigate your journey alone or in relationship with others.

This can’t be your life! You expend all your energy worrying about the needs of others, the never-ending demands of your job, and striving to meet an unreachable standard. The tension that plagues your mind and body refuses to be ignored. Intuitively, you know something’s not right. You know how to get things done. That’s what propelled you into the status you proudly earned. But keeping this pace is draining everything out of you. Now you’re the micro-manager, clinging to control, scared to let go. You’re an emotional baggage claim, harboring all the emotions you never processed. You resent feeling this way. It's time for a change.
