I am a trauma specialist working with developmental, relational, and shock traumas. Relationship is what we long for from our deep selves. From birth, our instinct is to connect in order to feel safety, comfort, and wholeness. This yearning moves with us throughout our lives. Connection gives us a sense of belonging and of being "okay". Be it the relationship with self, body, others, and life experience, the connection and flow of it is vital for healthy functioning. When the connection is blocked, frozen, or severed, a whole-self cannot thrive. Reconnecting is essential for our authentic self-expressions.

I am not a typical therapist. I see myself as a co-author, witness, helpful ally, teammate, collaborator and useful resource. Rather than taking a role as an “expert” by making assumptions or interpretations about your life, I love to use skillful conversation and artful question-asking to help you get past obstacles and problems. You are here on this page because you have strength in you, you have desire in you and you have healing in you. You are the main character in your own life.

Welcome! Therapy should be practical and approachable. As a relationship specialist, my collaborative focus is on the "why" of where you are. When we understand why, we can navigate the hurdles getting in your way with insight and healthy coping skills that are effective. You will not be alone in this; we will be working together on expanding awareness of your thoughts, feelings and ways that you engage with the world. This process opens up space for healthier, more intentional relationships that you can actually enjoy (including the one with yourself)! At the core of my practice is an authentic, warm and compassionate presence.

THERAPY CAN BE FUN, EXCITING, AND INSPIRING! But every day is a struggle just to get by and being angry is really hard work. The need to live life without shame of your past trauma and fulfill your potential is something that you long for. Perhaps your family is falling apart or your kids don't listen. In your past, there were cultural confines that have left you feeling empty. I help Asian Americans and people of color who are dealing with depression and anxiety from past or current trauma experience a sense purpose by helping them find the voice that they never knew they had.

Are you feeling stuck in old patterns of behavior that you know aren’t working for you? Perhaps you find that the way you’ve been showing up in your workplace, with your family, or with your friends hasn’t been effective or rewarding. A nagging insecurity keeps you from taking risks and being vulnerable with those you love. Or a need for control paralyzes your openness to growth and change. We all have blind spots that get in our own way, and one of the most powerful ways to unearth blind spots is by speaking with a skilled, intuitive therapist.
