About

Though I work with most issues, I specialize in helping people recover from complex trauma. People with narcissistic, abusive, or neglectful parents or partners sometimes develop issues with trusting themselves, have difficulty maintaining close relationships, struggle with an inner critic, vacillate often between depression and anxiety, lack a solid sense of identity, or feel a sense of emptiness when their lives seem great on paper. Sometimes that trauma can even become part of one's identity - I work with clients to build insight, boundaries, self-compassion, and acceptance to free themselves from it & live more fulfilling lives.
My specialties include complex trauma, childhood abuse/neglect, healing from narcissistic/abusive relationships, codependency and relationship problems, substance use disorders, masculinity and men's issues, couples therapy, and working with Asian American/minority issues such as family conflict, intergenerational trauma, cultural identity & racism.
I've been described by my clients as non-judgmental, warm (but direct), validating, and compassionate. Having been on the other side, I know it can be hard to know what you need, so I offer free consultations to help you get started on your path. Please also note that I am exclusively providing services via teletherapy at this time!
