Grief, trauma and systemic oppression have increasingly become visible and universal experiences affecting individuals, couples, families and communities. I began my career working with the survivors of intimate partner violence and individuals/families grappling with cancer and death. These experiences have informed my practice working with individuals, couples and families dealing with loss, grief, trauma, anxiety/depression, major life changes, chronic illness, abuse and relational distress.

I am a counselor who understands how it feels to sit in front of a therapist, that is why compassion is important to me. Vulnerability can be difficult, but we can create a safe space so when you're ready, we can change the difficulties interfering with your wants. That is therapy, getting what you need to get what you want. For example, depression has different flavors, but it keeps us from engaging fully in life and/or losing focus on what our dreams are. Whatever you are seeking to make life better and better, I am here to help. In person sessions can be scheduled on a limited basis but Telehealth with be offered on going.

Professionally and personally, I have a passion for social justice work and am driven to help all people successfully navigate an increasingly complex multicultural society. As technology shrinks the world, we are exposed to an ever more diverse set of people, communities, ideas, and perspectives. Whether we are a part of historically privileged or oppressed communities, all of us are working to find our place in this neo-diverse society. More and more, I see this challenge represented in my clients as they seek understanding of their issues, strengths, and identities.

Relationships, trauma, health issues, life transitions, grief, family dynamics, and childhood wounds can keep us feeling stuck. Nothing is more important to the therapeutic experience than the relationship between client and therapist. My goal is to not only offer you a comfortable space to speak freely about your thoughts and experiences, but to provide you with tools and strategies to incorporate into your daily routine. Together we can unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life.

My passion centers on the ways in which early relationships, life experiences and cultural contexts shape our worldviews and impact our choices, coping and performance. I also focus on the interplay between the mind and the physical body, and the ways we can use this connection to increase well-being and overall functioning. Over the past 15 years I have worked in various academic medical institutions and hospitals (UCLA, CHLA), using research-based interventions to guide individuals (children, youth and adults), couples and families in working towards agency, personal growth, positive change, insight, and adaptation to life events.

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.

Everyone has baggage related to sex and relationships, whether you're trying to build a more accepting view of your sexual self, meet your partner in their sexual fantasies, or set and support interpersonal boundaries. We all deserve healthy and fulfilling relationships, but they take a lot of work! Sex and relationship counseling is an opportunity for each person to do the work necessary to support the quality and longevity of their most valuable relationships. I am proud to work with individuals, couples, and partners to unpack their values and show up as their most authentic selves for themselves and their partners.

Accepting New Clients - As your therapist, I will provide a safe, nonjudgmental, and empathic setting for you to share about your current situation; explore early life experiences; gain a helpful understanding of your emotional world; and why you think and act in particular, problematic patterns. Many, if not all, of our emotional burdens (anxiety, people-pleasing, lying, codependency, lack of coping skills, mistrust of authority, hypersensitivity, defensiveness, dissociation, an underdeveloped sense of self, parenting struggles, relationship issues) are the result of earlier wounds that infuse within us lasting well into adulthood.

As a psychodynamic and attachment oriented therapist, I believe that the foundation of therapeutic treatment is a safe and supportive relationship between therapist and client. The process of treatment often uses the therapeutic relationship itself to uncover relational patterns from earlier in life that may be causing pain or dysfunction in the present day. By identifying the historical antecedent to a seemingly confusing or inappropriate emotional response, client and therapist are able to disrupt maladaptive patterns and choose new, more values congruent responses.

Life hasn't gone the way you wanted it to. You long for a better past. Instead of moving on, like others seem to be able to, you spiral into the same dark patterns. Over and over again. You don't want it to be this way, but you don't know what else to do. The days are tiresome, and some mornings you don't even want to get out of bed.

You give so much of yourself to others. Still, you're falling short of expectations. That unconventional perspective of yours has fueled your creativity, but you worry that people don’t really “get” you. It doesn’t help that you have anxiety in social situations. Even your closest relationship feels increasingly tense and disconnected. I want to help you find your way to calm, balance, and connection.
