Families come to me because their child or adolescent is struggling, and often times they don’t know where to begin to make things better. I work with children , teens, their parents, and young adults (up to age 25). I initially focus on learning about a person's challenges and strengths. Then, together we develop a plan for gaining mastery over difficulties, achieving goals, and ultimately reaching a child , teen, or early adult's potential. Often challenges feel overwhelming when first seeking help, but most families find initial sessions to clarify goals while also setting the stage for long-sought change.

Children and teens with depression, anxiety, ADHD, or other challenges often know what changes they want to make in their lives (e.g. getting better grades, feeling happier, having more friends) but find making life changes and reaching their goals to be incredibly difficult. My therapeutic intention is to reduce self-blame, learn to harness internal strengths, and help children , teens, young adults and families reach their goals. Always the overarching goal of therapy is to help individuals and families become their best selves through identifying goals and alleviating challenges.

My commitment to you is to provide you with informed choices about how I may be a resource to you, your children , or your family.
September 2022: I am not accepting new patients until after the start of 2023. You are welcome to contact me and I will respond about availability when I am able. I have dedicated my 20 year long career to the premise that we must know what is possible and have capacity to do it before we can be free to choose. During my academic studies in Psychology, Philosophy, Religion, and Social Work I was introduced to the intersections of Queer and Gender theories and became ignited with the framework of knowledge, power, control, and paths to liberation, all of which continue to inform my practice.

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.

Sometimes you feel stuck. Getting through each day takes effort. Maybe you want to make personal changes, but you're not sure where to start. Maybe you wonder if past experiences are keeping you from thriving, becoming your best self, and having the kind of relationships you want with others. Or perhaps the stress of this pandemic and the times we are living in is overwhelming you. You may feel depressed, anxious, fearful, or irritable. Maybe you wonder, "Will life always be this way? How can I confront this stress and maintain my health?"

**Waitlist Currently** I am highly experienced with those who find themselves stuck in unproductive or damaging patterns of thinking or actions and have been unable to move forward, even with other professional help. The feedback I receive from fellow providers and clients is that I have a high success rate of treatment and recovery. I believe that outpatient psychotherapy is a process of collaboration that provides a stable, supportive environment for achieving psychological wellness. Each of us are unique and the best expert on the stressors in our daily life.

Suffering draws us to consider therapy, much as it sends us to any doctor. The suffering therapy focuses on is emotional and existential (a LIFE that is out of whack). If you are considering therapy it means that you take your suffering seriously and wish to seek a more fulfilling life. You know instinctively that more is possible. I have many years of experience in helping people to develop greater strength and more fulfilling relationships.

I believe therapy should be a collaborative effort between client and therapist. While I may share some evidenced-based ideas during our sessions, only you are the expert on what works for you. My sessions will generally follow a cognitive behavioral approach, meaning that we will examine, and possibly shift, your thoughts and perspectives on life situations that are causing you enough distress to want to pursue change. Together we will form a plan of action that is the right fit for you at this point in time.
