People seeking therapy are often feeling frightened, alone and in great emotional turmoil and pain. My main focus is for my clients to feel safe, heard, understood and respected. I attempt to avoid interpretations and prefer to engage the individual, couple or family in an interactive dialogue. I believe realness and authentic communication are key factors in the healing process. Also, I never underestimate the therapeutic value of humor at certain times. My treatment approach is eclectic. I utilize psychodynamic, gestalt, existential and/or cognitive/behavioral interventions depending on the client and the situation.

I approach therapy as an active, collaborative process. I aim to provide a safe, compassionate and intelligent place to freely explore thoughts, feelings and experiences, take risks to work through past issues and current concerns, and identify and utilize core strengths to grow--and create more fulfilling lives and relationships. Years of clinical research and treatment with post-deployed combat veterans informs my practice: I believe that regardless of circumstances, we possess inherent strengths that, when harnessed, can move us toward wholeness, healing and extraordinary growth as individuals and in connection with others.

We are all born with the right to be happy, and we all have the capacity to heal. However, accessing these human truths sometimes feels impossible. Together, we can get to the root of what is getting in the way of you connecting to these ways of being, and empower you to know that you have the ability to change. Having a safe environment to explore challenges, uncertainty, or trauma, can help on the path to reconnecting with a stronger, more positive, sense of self.

The most important thing in a therapeutic relationship is the match. Everyone wants to find a therapist who 'gets' them. I believe that therapy really works, and that finding the right person can be life-changing. As a therapist, I believe it is important to respect the choices that people make in their lives, and to listen openly and non-judgmentally. We all make choices that may not make sense to our friends and family. Therapy is useful for helping us to understand the reasoning behind the decisions we've made, and for facilitating change in our lives.

Life can be difficult at times. A person could feel "dissatisfied with life," "unhappy," or "unfulfilled," despite all the efforts. Collaborating with a skilled psychotherapist could help a person identify and break the maladaptive patterns, make positive changes in life, and experience more happiness and freedom. I am a bilingual (Chinese & English) psychologist with over 15 years of training and experience. I adopt an integrative and holistic style, blending elements of Psychodynamic, Interpersonal, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and existential approaches through the lens of culture.

My work has been with people dealing with problems including trauma, shame, history of abuse, out- of-control behaviors, anxiety and depression. My creative background informs my clinical work. I began acting professionally as a teenager, performed and recorded as singer and multi-instrumentalist, studied jazz improvisation and began teaching. I worked with people to find and express their unique voice. In some cases, problems emerged (some named above) that were preventing progress. This gave us the opportunity to identify them and implement solutions.

The world is focused on the health, social and economic ravages of COVID-19—and yet humans can only control one's own internal world of emotions, thoughts and behaviors. When these are unbalanced, we experience anxiety, depression and perhaps externalizing symptoms such as addictions and relationship conflict. The added stress of the pandemic may make it more difficult to cope than usual. This may be an opportunity to do much needed work on the most important relationship you have—the one with yourself! How else will all the other important relationships in your life be healthy and rewarding? You be the change!
