Life can feel overwhelming. Therapy can be a collaborative space where we look into issues that you would like to address. We can find ways to make life feel more manageable and, ultimately, more enjoyable. The quality of the therapeutic relationship itself has been shown to significantly influence treatment outcomes. I lead with a humanistic approach, which emphasizes authenticity and the idea that growth can happen while in an environment that is nourishing. My goal is to help my clients feel understood and empowered. Through this process, you may step into greater self-discovery and self-acceptance.

New beginnings can often be disguised as painful endings. I work closely with those who have been through tragic events, suffered childhood abuse, those who have been victimized by others, as well as those who might feel like they have nowhere left to turn. My goal is to help you find your inner strength, and to courageously be free to display it and be proud. I am empathetic to my client’s needs, ambitious to provide support, and offer a nonjudgmental space for you to share and truly be heard.

I work with individuals and couples/partnerships, tackling therapeutic issues that include anxiety, depression, neurodivergence, relationship distress, gender dysphoria, and sexuality. I aim to create a safe space where you feel comfortable showing up as your authentic self. I do so by fostering an environment where vulnerability is not only welcome, but encouraged. I work through an LGBTQ+ and neurodivergent affirming lens. I do not believe these are identities that need to be fixed or changed, but rather embraced and honored.

“Why do I still feel so stuck?” If you’ve been sober for any significant amount of time, chances are, this thought has occurred to you at least once. You did the work, why is it still so difficult? We are promised “just get clean and everything else will follow”, but rarely is ever that simple. Often, sobriety grants the necessary stability to allow strength and space to work on what really holds us back in life. Things like, codependency, trauma, anxiety, depression, executive dysfunction, the list goes on and on. If you're stuck in the same patterns and struggling to figure out how to actually apply what you know, I'm your girl.

I was trained in rendering brief and short term therapy since we all want quick results. How do I do that? I am interactive with my clients and not just provide “talk therapy”, but rather, we will co-create a plan together to help you achieve positive results. I hold my clients accountable and will assign homework. I will give you my input, impressions, and at times, challenge you when those defenses are up. In life, when we’re faced with challenges, it only promotes growth and strength. At the same time, we will give you the positive regard, reflective listening, and be your cheerleader. We will empower you, not enable you.

To my fellow highly sensitive folks. To the idealists, the dreamers, and the creatives. To the tender hearts that feel a little deeper and the sensitive souls that yearn for authentic connection. To those who navigate this life in bodies of color. To the ones who have been harmed by systems of oppression. May I invite you to experience safety, acceptance, and understanding. May you feel a little less alone on your journey. As an Asian American therapist, I deeply value the intersectionality of my client's experiences and work to provide a safe space to explore identity, experience authenticity, and honor oneself.

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.
