I'm a psychotherapist, relationship specialist, wife and mom. Many of us can recognize patterns of our behavior that were previously helpful but now get in the way of the kinds of relationships we want. In many ways navigating difficult circumstances allowed us to survive or even thrive, however the ways we find now to cope don’t benefit us in the long run. The ways these interactions show up can surprise us at times, because while our lives can feel full and abundant, there can also be a flip side of sadness, resentment, and worry.

I, too, have found myself in troubling times on occasion during my life, and have been most fortunate when I have good people on my side when I am having a problem. As different as we all are, we all run into tough times and it can be helpful then to have someone on our side.

Choosing a therapist can be intimidating, especially for people of color. We might find ourselves wondering if our therapist will "get" what it's like to be us. I believe each person, couple, and family brings with them a set of unique experiences, values, and goals, often influenced by various cultural factors. Perhaps you are an individual looking for a safe space to explore your identity, including race, ethnicity, and gender. Maybe you are in a cross-cultural relationship and want help navigating tricky topics productively. It could be your family is in conflict around generational differences and opposing values.

You're tired of constantly feeling like there's something wrong with you, that if anyone knew who you "really are" they wouldn't want to be with you. Maybe you've tried to "fix yourself" with self-help books, spiritual workshops, and healing groups - but you still feel like there's something wrong. If you are ready to explore your deepest self and heal from life-long painful patterns, trauma, and oppression - to build a foundation of true self love, and joyful, meaningful purpose - please reach out! It is my deepest belief that each of us holds everything we need within ourselves to heal - I am honored to help you discover that.

My clients are often sensitive, intelligent, and creative people who face life transitions, self-doubt, anxiety, depression, and the challenges of liberating passion and creating meaning in life. Many struggle with the legacy of significant trauma. Through acceptance, loving encouragement, and providing a container for self-exploration, I help clients to find a more encompassing love for self and other, develop strength and firmness of character, and tap into the well of their vitality, creativity, and joy.

Life in the time of Coronavirus; we're living through a historic global health crisis that's indescribably stressful. The blindingly fast pace of life has come to a grinding halt. We're accumulating losses, some more than others. Everyone's survival stress and anxiety about sickness, death, insecurity, uncertainty and loss have come roaring to the surface. If you have pre-existing PTSD, depression, OCD or anxiety, you may feel particularly affected. You may find you're relying more on compulsive behaviors to cope with stress. While it may feel surreal, this is actually a great time to start therapy.

Whatever your reasons for coming to therapy, I will meet all parts of you with respect and non-judgment. My sense of humor and realness helps you get comfortable, and even laugh sometimes; my grounded, caring presence makes it safer to talk about and experience challenging emotions. Therapy work with me involves thoughts and insights from the mind, feelings and sensations living in the body, and relationships with others in the world (particularly the one between client and therapist); a balance of resources which we will use to help you explore, understand, integrate, and move yourself closer to healing.

Do you feel tired and overwhelmed? Are you exhausted from bobbing and weaving around the needs of others? Is it difficult for you to ask for and trust in help? While you feel depleted, there is still a spark within, guiding you to focus on your own wellness. Your head is barely above water, yet you are determined to emerge and need help to do so. Perhaps it is time to enter a relationship with a therapist; a collaborator who can journey with you to explore your past, build mindful awareness in the present, and develop skills to achieve your future goals of self compassion, acceptance and authentic connection to yourself and others.

It can be hard to recognize at first, but painful experiences often provide opportunities for immense personal growth and deeper connection to yourself and others. They offer a chance to tap into our own innate wisdom and capacity to grow, while developing new strategies for navigating life’s inevitable twists and turns. I provide strength-based, trauma-informed, somatic psychotherapy to youth, adults, and families who are seeking support with changing patterns that no longer serve them, creating a path towards greater resilience and meaning in their lives. I welcome clients of all ages, backgrounds, and identities.

It's a brave and vulnerable step to seek support, and I want to honor all that brought you to this moment. My approach is down-to-earth, relational, and holistic. It’s steeped in the principles of neuropsychology and yoga, my experience as a child of Vietnamese refugees, and my transition from the corporate world into psychotherapy. Aside from all of that - I believe it is the relationship that we cultivate together that will empower you to build a stronger connection to your intuition and the ancestral wisdom that exists within.

Are you asking, How can I find love? or, What is missing in my relationships? Are you stuck in complaining and blaming, or avoiding and withholding? Are you noticing your relationship struggles make you feel lonelier rather than more open to each other? I provide an environment of safety where you may explore how you are stuck and how your persistent conflicts spoil your potential for intimacy. Tracking the repetitive patterns of communication, and the stories which confirm your most negative beliefs, I will strengthen your awareness to the influences that affect whether you keep repeating old patterns or open to real change.

My therapeutic approach centers on creating more opportunities for space and reflection. This is an active and transformative process where we learn how to interrupt old patterns of reacting and create room for intentionality in our responses. Many of us operate within the conditions of our early relationships and form ways of relating that we are longing to transmute. I support you as you learn to get to the root of the response, understand it, and to develop tools of self-healing so that you can one day see the well-worn reaction waiting for you, and choose something different.
