I have professional experience working with children, adolescents, adults, couples and families .
Therapy is a unique opportunity to focus on yourself and begin down the path to a healthy, more fulfilling life. Working collaboratively with a therapist can help you to explore patterns, relationships and ways of functioning that no longer serve your best interest. This exploration can lead to the strength and confidence necessary to make changes and regain focus in your life. Therapy is an emotionally safe place that will allow you to heal as you address difficult issues, gain clarity, and become reacquainted with your authentic self.

We Are Here to Help You Solve Problems. Let's face it sometimes everyone needs a little help when things get rough. But not everyone has time to commit to a rigid, long-term therapeutic regimen - some people need to seek help on their own terms. I have created a therapeutic environment that is conversational, flexible, and extremely transparent. I specialize in utilizing personal therapy as a medium for conflict resolution. Put simply, we use time and conversation to help you solve your problems, no matter what they are - depression, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, or anything else.

Seeking therapy is an important decision that shows personal strength and motivation. Therapy can be a safe, confidential space to explore issues that are important to you, and to pursue goals you have for yourself and your life. I have a deep respect for the strengths you bring to the therapeutic work, and my approach to therapy involves building on these strengths to support you in reaching your goals. I believe strongly in a non-judgmental approach to therapy, and I offer an emotionally safe space where you can explore important life issues in an authentic way.

As one of the first in-home addiction treatment providers in the country, we are an excellent fit for those struggling with substance abuse and/or mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, and stress who want to remain engaged in positive forces in their lives (work, family ) while they recover. Our clients also value the privacy and convenience that our treatment program offers. Of course, there should not be a one-size-fits-all approach to addiction treatment, as you have unique needs and goals. To that end, our clients have a dedicated team of addiction professionals to provide psychiatry, medication, and counseling services as appropriate, over the course of an entire year. Not only are we able to more precisely tailor your recovery program than other addiction treatment providers, but we also help you learn and practice coping skills in the environment in which your sobriety will be tested.

Suffering is often the result of less than nurturing relationships and experiences. Fear can become imprisoned in the body. Family and culture can dictate how safe it is, or not safe, to express and be yourself. My own immigrant experience from Taiwan allows me deeper empathy with people navigating challenging life transitions and relating to different cultures, and even new relationships. I strive to empower individuals within the context of systemic injustice and complications. My work is to provide compassion and wisdom so that you can feel fully alive and authentic in your body, in your world and in your relationships.

As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I specialize in working with individuals, couples, and families .

It is my privilege to accompany and support clients on this powerful journey of self-discovery.

With my guidance, individuals and families can work towards increased meaning and fulfillment in a warm and caring environment.
From time to time, everyone has struggles in life, whether it's adjusting to loss or transitions, coping with problems in relationships, or with balancing the demands of daily life. Though it can really help to talk things over with a professional counselor, sometimes people hesitate, fearing the possibility of being judged or not understood. I believe that providing a safe, trusting, and nonjudgmental environment is one of the most important elements of good therapy, an element that allows positive change to occur.

Practicing in Chicago for over twenty-five years I have had the opportunity to work with individuals and families from so many different cultures and nationalities.
I start with a thorough assessment of your current concerns. I take a broad-minded, non-judgmental approach to understanding what you are looking for help with. I try to be helpful by offering feedback and new perspectives and insights. I understand that you have probably already attempted several ways to address your concerns and by now you are most likely frustrated and worried. I will take a proactive and positive approach to your participation by helping you identify your personal strengths and assets that you can then use to develop a new and better response to your concerns.

Brendan believes we all have the power to cultivate peace within ourselves and within our chosen family .
Thank you for taking the first step towards a happier, healthier life - you are making the important decision to support yourself. Brendan’s background is in sexual and domestic violence. He believes trauma affects us physically, emotionally, and spiritually. By establishing safety, remembering, and grieving, we are able to reconnect with our current lives. Our mental health has physical effects; Brendan focuses on the damage chronic stress has on the body as well as the mind. Our nervous system cannot absorb the impact of trauma alone. We find healing through our relationships and communities. Together, we find a path forward.
