Kao has specialties in the following: 1) Cultural/Personal identity 2) Anxiety 3) Depression 4) Marital issues 5) Life transition 6) Spirituality.
When life hasn't turned out the way you hoped, it's difficult to know where to go or how to make change. The decision to seek help can be a difficult process. Many times, it's much easier to sweep your struggles under the rug and put your personal happiness on the backburner. It will be my privilege and joy to work with you in developing a life path that will bring you happiness and joy. It will be my focus to help you identify the specific issues that you're struggling with, where they come from, and how to best change unhealthy patterns of living to improve your quality of life.

With my specializations in trauma, anxiety, depression, in conjunction with practices in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution Focused, and Humanistic approaches we can begin to put you back in control of your life.
Is your sink full of dirty dishes? What is your smallest dish? We all know that feeling of looking at a sink full of dirty dishes and just not knowing where to start so when things become distressing the best way to move forward is to “wash the smallest dish”. I know many of us can relate to this simple but profound metaphor, at times we become so overwhelmed by the nuances of life that gaining mastery in managing some of the “dishes” in our lives related to trauma, anxiety, depression, and stress can leave us feeling stuck or unsure of just what to do because all we can see is the sink full of dishes.

Whether it is navigating the tumultuous twists and turns that parenthood throws at us or untangling the complicated symptoms of anxiety and depression - I have the tools to lighten the load you have been carrying for so long.
There's that feeling creeping in again...the shame, the anxiety, the self-doubt. Everyone else seems to be moving forward and you can't help but always feel - stuck. Even when you're smiling it feels like part of you isn't really there. It's like the sadness lingers, holding you captive and weighing you down at work, at home, and in the relationships most important to you. But you are NOT alone. Your anxiety and fears don't define you. These feelings don't have to be permanent. You have already taken a huge first step in considering getting support - so let's take the next step together.

My interest is working with people suffering with developmental trauma, depression, anxiety, personality disorders, coping with daily life stress and parenting and family issues.
"The pain is there; when you close one door on it, it knocks to come in somewhere else..." (Dr. Irvin D. Yalom). The process of psychotherapy is uncovering the pain, either developmental, situation specific or just existential, and working through it within the bounds of a trusting, accepting and empathetic therapeutic relationship. Throughout the process, I will help you uncover and become comfortable with your authentic self, while bringing into the consciousness some of the themes and motives that have unconsciously ruled your life and became a part of who you are.

Do you find it difficult to say no, or have a hard time answering the question of; "who am I,"? Perhaps you find yourself very much "there for" others, but having difficulty knowing what it means to take care of yourself along the way? Often, we find ourselves in patterns of relating to others in which our own self takes a back of the bus seat, if a seat at all. However, in this way of relating to ourself & others, we can often feel resentful, anxious or even depressed. It can be very helpful to have space to begin to value the question of who you are & to move forward from there into a healthier way of relating.

Depression Therapists
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy by depression therapists in Monrovia. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
