If you are in the grips of anxiety, troubled relationships, grief, or other issues that threaten to overwhelm your ability to function or be happy in your life, I look forward to working with you in a safe and non-judgmental way. I use a collaborative approach and actively seek your feedback to provide you with therapy that matches your needs and respects your goals.

I look for the best in my clients and partner this with my skills to develop satisfying solutions and tools. I'm a listening and talking therapist who does not believe that therapy has to be torturous to be effective.

I was born in the U.S. (1972) to Chinese parents, and grew up looking at the world through various perspectives and valuing diversity. I work with people of all ages, sexual orientations, gender identities, and religious beliefs. I have survived my own losses, depression, and anxiety to know that a better life is possible.

I can recommend Ivan wholeheartedly! Having been his supervisor in past private practice, I am familiar with Ivan’s fine work as a therapist. Ivan pays careful attention to his client, responding quite precisely to what the client says s/he needs and wants, rather than to some agenda of his own. Since he’s caring, empathic and perceptive, his clients work out their solutions to their challenges fairly easily in his company. While empathic to their suffering, Ivan also offers his clients calm, warmth and confidence, which does them a world of good!

My experience with Jamie as my private practice supervisor was, bar none, one of the best experiences during my time as an intern. He is empathic and engaging, curious and quick witted. If you are interested in a psychotherapist who is non-judgmental, supportive, and highly intelligent, Jamie is the one for you.
