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.

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.

I believe that the therapeutic relationship is a core part of engaging in healthy life changes. Change is very difficult for most people and sometimes all it takes is to talk about your struggles and have someone to listen and try to understand. My belief is that the therapy relationship can help the healing process no matter what it is you are dealing with. The first step towards having a happy life is a healthy mind.

Furthermore I believe psychotherapy is a collaborative process which brings something unique to each patient-therapist relationship. Working together, we can uncover your personal needs and internal struggles, in real time, to better understand how to acknowledge and express these needs in your everyday life.

Many of my clients begin therapy feeling immensely frustrated that anxiety and worry feel impossible to conquer. I also see people that feel hopeless because life feels like one endless chore with no light at the end of the tunnel. Have you ever told yourself you know you need to make a change, but you can't muster the will power to follow through? If so, we might be a great match. I also work with a lot of people that feel trapped in their relationships but don't know how or what to change. I believe that great therapy involves using many lenses or frameworks in order to heal.

Emotionally Focused Therapists
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is an approach to therapy that helps clients identify their emotions, learn to explore and experience them, to understand them and then to manage them. Sawtelle, Los Angeles Emotionally Focused Therapy embraces the idea that emotions can be changed, first by arriving at or 'living' the maladaptive emotion (e.g. loss, fear or shame) in session, and then learning to transform it. Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples seeks to break the negative emotion cycles within relationships, emphasizing the importance of the attachment bond between couples, and how nurturing of the attachment bonds and an empathetic understanding of each others emotions can break the cycles.
