Give yourself permission to be vulnerable by putting yourself first. Negative and highly-critical self-talk, especially for gay men, is the root of many of our problems and addictions. You may feel “less-than” others, think poorly of yourself, or are unsure how to get your needs met. I can help you to shed light on where this inner-critic is coming from, how to quiet it, and help you rebuild your relationship with self/others. Next, we can develop tools to manage anxiety and depression, embrace your sexuality, develop a healthier relationship to sex/porn, heal infidelity, integrate love and sex, or improve your relationships.

Throughout our lives, we encounter a number of spaces where we feel our voices silenced. Continual experiences of being quieted can lead us to internalize messages that we don’t have the permission to speak – questioning whether or not to start therapy is no exception to this. As a queer, Korean-Japanese American, there have been countless times when I’ve been told that I’m not man enough, that I’m unfit for love, and that I don’t have a story to be heard. Much of my work is informed by the idea that, in order for us to heal, we must first feel like our perspective matters and that our struggles are deserving of support.

I appreciate your willingness to take the time to put yourself first and look for a new therapist. I believe therapy is not just for the challenging moments, it's also designed when things in life are perfectly fine. We could all use additional tools when life is going great to prepare us for when things get rough. My goal is to promote and encourage the importance of physical and mental health while collaboratively adding value to your daily life. I want to provide you with a safe, secure environment to explore hard topics while incorporating different skills and tools that you can utilize regularly. The space and time is yours!

When sexual issues and harmful behaviors seize control of our lives, it’s easy to lose our sense of self and feel untethered. Depression, anxiety and substance abuse often follow. Toxic shame can overwhelm us. I support my clients as they work through sex addiction, porn addiction, intimacy issues and sexual dysfunction, as well as the trauma which so often lies beneath. I also help couples as they navigate the challenges of infidelity, non-monogamous relationships and general disconnection.

Our capacity to connect, both with ourselves (i.e. our passions, feelings, and body) and with others, is crucial to our feelings of well-being. When we connect, we generally feel a sense of aliveness in ourselves and the world. When we can't connect, we feel anxious, isolated, empty, or depressed. I feel my job is to help clients to more fully connect to the range of their experiences. I help adults, adolescents, and couples explore why they lose connection. I help them identify, understand, and overcome the deep root of their disconnection. I help them find well-being, which gives me great joy.

I've been practicing for 35 years. I work mostly with relationship and sexual problems; mood disorders; and work problems. I find that people's needs in psychotherapy differ. Some people need a safe place to explore their inner life. Others need direct advice. Most people need both and I try to provide both. I think people do well when they understand their current problems in the context of their personality and the arc of their life, that is, their past, present, and where they can head.

I treat clients from a trauma informed perspective. If it is addiction issues (substance or process) anxiety, depression or other mood disorders, so much of what informs these maladies is developmental or relational trauma. Big T or shock trauma can bring on many underlying issues that have been dormant. I work with clients to carefully assess their history and treatment goals. I use CBT, Psychodynamics, EMDR and other trauma treatment modalities to effectively resolve the inner disturbance.

How does "therapy" work? Psychotherapy works by helping you look at feelings, thoughts and behavior in situations which you find problematic. It helps you to learn more effective ways in dealing with those situations. Psychotherapy is a collaborative effort. You and I will identify your goals -- what you want to have happen, and agree on how you'll know when you're making progress. I will talk to you about the length of time it may take to help you see changes. Progress, and change, can happen.

Life has a way throwing curve balls. From unexpected challenges to fluctuating deadlines, life sometimes causes us to feel like we are aiming for a moving target. Relationships are guaranteed to have pitfalls that can surprise anyone. Trauma often is the leftover when a home or society is not welcoming, when violence has been perpetrated on you, or when you are faced with overwhelming loss. You will need access to your internal resources when addressing past and present trauma. Living life with a centered mindfulness can help guide you to wholeness.

Together, we’ll build greater awareness around anxieties, fears, triggers, or conflicts that get in the way of relationships. We’ll work to identify your needs and further develop skills to communicate them. We'll spend time calling attention to "-isms," "shoulds", and other narratives that might no longer serve you. Recently, I’ve worked primarily with multiracial couples cultivate intimacy and a shared sense of purpose, and with adults in recovering a sense of joy, and navigating transitions.

Our deepest wounds often occur in our early relationships. These wounds control our emotions in the present and can affect every area of our lives. Through unconscious beliefs and habits we recreate feelings and circumstances that reinforce our self-destructive patterns and make it difficult to connect with others. Because these wounds are rooted in interpersonal relationships, they are often healed through the lens of our present relationships. Thus, our work together will focus on building healthy connections so that you can begin to heal, develop new tools, and fulfill your highest potential as a human being.
