*Accepting new clients in July 2022* When in session, I want to foster safe spaces where challenging conversations and vulnerable emotions can be explored and processed, and achievements are celebrated. When stress, anxiety, depression , grief, and other emotional distress occurs, I meet my clients where they are at. Just because we can do something alone, does not mean we have to. Whatever stage of life you are in, let's work through those personal transitions and obstacles. Thus, I believe the best clinical relationships come when both of us are open, curious, and eager for the growth to come from session-to-session.

I have experience working with anxiety, depression , life and career transitions, relationship and personality issues, and racial/cultural concerns.
The experiences that individuals encounter throughout their lives can be opportunities for self-exploration and emotional growth. My role as a psychologist is to provide empathy, support, guidance, and skills to help clients identify existing strengths and resources to address life transitions and stressors. I can also help develop new coping strategies and ways of thinking to overcome experiences that restrict a satisfying and fulfilling life. It would be a great privilege to hear your story and collaboratively work to develop targets for change, identify growth edges, and tap into your existing assets to help you reach your goals.

Changes often raise fear and curiosity. I particularly enjoy working with clients who are full of curiosities and who are willing to explore unknowns and perceive unknowns as gifts. I am interested in supporting clients’ fear related to changes, and helping clients work on variety of issues, including anxiety, depression , adjustment issues, traumas, identity development (e.g., sexual orientation and cultural identities), etc. Prior to arriving in the US, I was a mental health provider in Taiwan. In my early career, I practiced child play therapy and animal-assisted psychotherapy.

I am excited to join you on your journey! I have been working in the field of mental health treatment for 22 years. While I know some things about treatment, I believe that you are the expert on you. So therapy should be an experience not where I give you advice, but rather provide an opportunity for you to come to your own solution you are comfortable with.

I have worked at all levels of care. I appreciate collaborating with other treatment providers to provide the best care possible. In the midst of a struggle, we can often lose sight of our strengths, and I work alongside clients to re-connect to their inherent resilience/resources. I meet clients where they are and strive to create a therapeutic environment that is affirming, accepting and inclusive

*ACCEPTING NEW PATIENTS* I am a licensed therapist and certified health coach. I've had the fortunate opportunity of working with many different types of people throughout my career.

I obtained my Master's in Social Work degree from East Carolina University in 2011 and began practicing psychotherapy. Taking the first step toward treatment isn't easy. But since you are already here, take the second step to schedule an appointment...you'll be glad you did!

We are all journeying through life. At times the path you are traveling becomes unclear and may require action to move the debris blocking your way. Debris may show up as depression , anxiety, self-doubt, or even fear. There may also have been something along your journey which caused you great pain that could be hindering your ability to move forward in life. Counseling can support you with clearing the way so that you may see yourself and your path more clearly, allowing you to live the life you most desire.

Depression Therapists
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy by depression therapists in Durham. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
