In general, I am guided in therapy, assessment, and consultation by a psychodynamic perspective.
Identifying interferences to optimal personal functioning and removing them is an important part of emotional growth, often leading to or facilitating an improved sense of health in the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspect of both individual and our interpersonal experiences. My job, as a therapist, is to support my clients' feelings and thoughts however they may emerge, while at the same time working to encourage the transformation of those emotions and thoughts into transitions toward the pursuit of a fuller, more satisfying life.

This includes Relational and Attachment Based Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy, Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR).
Therapy is about allowing ourselves space to process and to heal. I specialize in working with individuals who struggle with past and present trauma, anxiety, mood disorders, and relationship issues. I offer a warm, nonjudgemental space to process your emotions and experiences and gain awareness into patterns and blind spots that you would like to change. Through this awareness, you can then start to foster meaningful change to create the life you want to live. Living a fulfilling life is rooted in intentionality, and intentionality starts with awareness.

My goal is to help clients feel less alone in their struggles and more understood, as they work on what they wish to change in their lives and relationships. I believe that what has happened in our past shapes who we are today, and I help the people I work with explore the influence of the past in order to create a more fulfilling present. Within the therapeutic relationship, clients can practice and integrate more balanced ways to express themselves and connect with others. I integrate ideas and practices from relational psychodynamic , interpersonal, and modern psychoanalytic orientations.

We may use various approaches: cognitive-behavioral to help you take back control of your life; psychodynamic “talk” to clarify your thoughts, needs, and goals; motivational enhancement to help you put it all into action; and narrative therapy to clarify the story of your past, present, and future.
Drawing on a variety of tools, we will collaborate on a treatment plan that fits your needs, goals, and values. My approach to therapy is emotive, cathartic, and cognitive. I work with people from all walks of life and collaborate with you to help shape the life you want to live.

I utilize modalities such as CBT, ACT, somatic experiencing, psychodynamic & gestalt therapy, and mindfulness practices.
My clients describe my approach as gentle and direct with a dab of humor. I do my best work treating individuals who have experienced interpersonal trauma, people who are navigating their role in complicated families, and those who have been emotionally abused. I tend to find success with people who struggle with depression or low self-esteem, people who work in high-stress or helping professions, and people who do not know where to start. I have experience working with people with Bipolar Disorder, PMDD, learning disabilities, ADHD, anxiety, insomnia, auto-immune conditions, depression, anxiety, panic disorders, autism, & PTSD.

I use an eclectic approach, incorporating feminist, relational-cultural, psychodynamic , and person-centered theories.
Let’s face it–shit has hit the fan. Between the pandemic, systems of oppression, and so much uncertainty...we’re all trying to figure it out. Plus, you have things you were already dealing with– depression, trauma responses, grief, existential questions...Maybe you’re tired of “blank slate” therapists. You want to explore healing through art and creativity instead of just talking. You want space to process your past & present experiences and to deepen your understanding of and reconnect with yourself. You’re looking for someone who "gets" it– who validates your lived experience and who has been on that side of the couch.

I utilize a relational, client-centered approach as the foundation to my therapy and pull on interventions from feminist, psychodynamic , CBT, DBT, multicultural, and anti-racist/anti-oppressive theories and approaches.
Taking the first step to begin therapy can be a challenging one, and finding the right therapist is an important piece. I take a supportive, non-judgmental approach to therapy and start off by creating a safe space to allow a strong therapeutic relationship to form. I give my clients the space to describe their challenges and hardships. Along the way, I help clients develop coping skills as well as awareness into their patterns and behaviors, and systemic factors, in order to create positive changes in their lives. I support all parts of clients’ histories, inviting honest exploration into the complexities of their experiences.

I work primarily from the Psychodynamic and Interpersonal lens, though I have been trained in a variety of different therapeutic models.
Having lived in different countries (China, England, and the U.S.) and lived the life of both a “majority” and a “minority”, I am able to connect with people in their diverse life experiences. I see therapy as a relationship between two people committed to face the deeper truths of our lives. I am here to understand your unique personal story, and support you in sorting out complex emotional and relational concerns. The goal is for you to set yourself free from limiting barriers, build emotional resilience, and develop more fulfilling relationships with others.

I also utilize a psychodynamic approach to explore how clients' past experiences and patterns are influencing and playing out in the present.
My goal is to provide a safe and non-judgmental space to collaborate with clients at a respectful pace. I trust that my clients are experts on themselves and strive to meet them where they are. I believe in the power of the therapeutic relationship as a mechanism for healing and focus on fostering a relationship defined by authenticity, vulnerability and trust. I am not interested in playing the role of an aloof expert and seek to join clients in their journey of self-exploration on a level playing field.

My approach is rooted in psychodynamic (insight leads to change and relief) and person-centered (I may have clinical knowledge, but you are the expert in your own life) principles.
At some point in our early childhoods, we learned (whether communicated directly or indirectly) that we must sacrifice a part of our authentic selves in order to be worthy of love. Even as adults, this shame around our true selves continues to hold us back from feeling deeply connected with others, living by our values, and finding internal peace to buoy us through uncertain, stressful times.
