Therapy may seem intimidating, but sometimes what you are most afraid of doing can be the very thing that will set you free! I believe that therapy, coupled with a mindset of positivity, can be the life-changing event that propels you out of negative circumstances. Unexpected things are going to happen in life, people may disappoint us; all we can really control is how we choose to handle things. I utilize courage, humor, empathy, and emotionally focused techniques to create a safe, non-judgemental space for couples, adults, and adolescents to explore, heal, and achieve lasting change in their lives.

I strive to provide services to anyone feeling misunderstood, unheard, lost or struggling with the next stage in their life. Society can have a picture of what our lives should look like and how we should feel when certain events happen to us, it can get hard when we do not fit into that picture. Sometimes all we need is someone to listen and to validate our emotions to be able to find ourselves.

We all have the capacity to reach our fullest potential. Yet all too often we find ourselves stuck in negative patterns of thinking and acting, unable to see other possibilities. Therapy allows us to make meaning of our difficult life experiences and open up to new ways of thinking, feeling, and being. I strive to provide a safe and supportive environment where clients can learn to identify and express their emotions effectively, develop healthy ways of coping with difficult emotions, improve the quality of their relationships, and increase their self-esteem and sense of self-worth.

Taking the step to get counseling takes a lot of courage. You are already on your way to reach your desired goals. I believe that everyone faces their own challenges and has their own unique experience, but you don't have to go through it on our own. It is my job to guide you in your journey to reach health and happiness. I work with adults, elders, and adolescents ages 12-17 with anxiety, depression, sexual trauma, and grief and loss. I also have special insights with people who are marginalized (BIPOC, LGBT+, Women etc.).

My clients consistently tell me what a profound positive impact our collaborative work in therapy has made on their lives, especially after they have felt "stuck" for a long time. Being able to "connect the dots," gain insights, and change behaviors can bring great relief and a sense of hope. I enjoy helping individuals, couples, or families cope with past, present, or chronic stressors and regain power and control over their lives and relationships. This is especially true for people who have experienced traumatic events and (as a result) may have symptoms of anxiety, depression, anger, and/or (behavioral) addictions.

I work best with clients who respond well to empathy, honesty, insight, and humor. People are incredibly resilient and are capable of overcoming great adversity to achieve satisfying lives. Those who are ready to commit to the counseling process will certainly benefit the most from my approach. Life satisfaction often depends upon being fulfilled in your personal life and your work life. Therefore, personal and career counseling can be helpful. I provide personal counseling to adults (18 and older) and career assessment to adolescents and adults (15 and older). A supportive environment and an affirming therapy approach are offered to individuals in the LGBTQ community.

Toreyung believes that change happens when clients gain true self-awareness coupled with discovering or maintaining core positive beliefs. Most clients go through life living unbalanced lives due to childhood experiences that have imprinted on their mental filters. Toreyung focuses on Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction techniques coupled with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy techniques to help clients learn to manage their anxiety, depression, irrational thoughts and cognitive distortions that so often keep clients in rigid/ritualistic routines that develop into negative behavioral patterns or self-medication.

Are you chronically worried and/or unhappy -- and can't "snap out of it?" Maybe you're stuck. Perhaps you feel lonely and misunderstood. I'd like to give you personal attention, understand you, and provide you warm, genuine, and nonjudgmental support and guidance. Together, we can identify and understand the causes of your pain, reinstill hope, and find ways for you to cope and regain pleasure in the here-and-now. My research on loss and mother-daughter relationships strengthens my work with individuals; couples; gender issues; parenting; anxiety and depression; and adjustment to loss and overall life changes.

People sometimes have this misconception that counseling is to “fix people” or that they “are the problem.” I do not think people are problems, but that we all have problems. Sometimes these problems need additional help and support that counseling can provide. This is why I utilize a wellness approach to counseling. A wellness approach focuses on the whole person by helping clients to identify their strengths and wants while assisting them with problems they are experiencing.
