A serious disease changes the course of our life and the lives of our family .
I work with people suffering from various mental health conditions: depression, anxiety, panic attacks, mood disorders, or grieving a loss. In my 25 years as a therapist, I have worked with patients from diverse cultural, racial, and socio-economic backgrounds. In the recent years, my focus has been psychotherapy, support and psycho-education for people with acute or chronic medical conditions. The achievements of modern medicine do not replace attention to potentially devastating psychological effects of being sick, yet doctors often overlook or ignore them, leaving us to cope with fear, loneliness, and critical decisions to make.

I utilize a range of different modalities including CBT, DBT, EFT, MI, Narrative Therapy, and Family Systems Theory.
In my opinion, there is no such thing as an ideal client. The human experience is far too vast and varying for one to be considered an ideal therapeutic client. It is my pleasure to engage with any individual who has the strength and awareness to seek mental health treatment and it is my privilege to be allowed into their lives. In my work as a therapist, it is my hope to work with my clients in such a way that encourages and inspires them to pursue their authentic-selves while building healthy, sustainable skills to cope with the myriad of struggles, obstacles, and experiences that life can entail.

I have 9 years experience working with children and families who have suffered the effects of trauma, substance abuse, domestic violence, unhealthy family dynamics, and overall poor coping skills.
As a Psychotherapist, I believe that everyone already has the tools they need to be their most productive and successful self. Sometimes people just need the support and encouragement from an outside source to reach their personal "happy place". Every patient has a right to Self-Determination and Self-Awareness. Psychotherapy can help develop insight, coping mechanisms, and social skills to help us build stronger relationships.

I love to work with people who juggle multiple cultures: your original one and evolving one. You might be here as an international student or on business. You might be here to raise a family but feel like you don't belong. You might be raised by 1st generation Asian parents. You might be in a relationship where you and your partner come from different cultural backgrounds. Do you often choose silence to avoid conflict in a relationship? Do you feel you are taken lightly because you are from different country or culture? I work with clients individually as well as with intercultural and interracial couples.

Are you feeling down most of the time? Do you constantly worry about your future? Do you have problems relating to others? If some of these questions speak to you, you may want to talk to a trained therapist, who can help you to sort out the things in your life and help you to regain the lost time you spent alone. Some of the feelings you may have are quite normal. However, it becomes a problem when such emotions and feelings impede the daily functioning of your life, such as inability to work, difficulties with family relationships and friendships.

I have post-graduate training in couple, child, and family therapy , psychodynamic therapy, meditation techniques, trauma work, and have specialized training in the creative/performing arts and music.
Although some struggle is an inevitable part of life, there is the danger of accepting continual pain & struggle as "the way life is". This way of thinking can keep a person trapped, unable to even imagine what "better" would look like. Therapy offers a way out. For some, the traumas suffered in the past make it difficult to find happiness. Others may find themselves behaving in ways that leave them feeling worse, or once again in the same hurtful relationships. Some may be consumed with regrets about past mistakes, or filled with fear of the future, missing opportunities to live well in the present.

I work with family members as well as the patient, when appropriate.
I am an experienced therapist with a keen sensitivity to my clients' needs, and a deep understanding of their issues. I work with a diverse clientele, and I help my clients manage a wide spectrum of situations that arise in their lives. People come when they are overwhelmed, stressed out, experiencing work issues, marriage troubles, school problems, etc. I work with them to teach them new skills, or to help them realize that they have the skills they need, but are not using them in the most advantageous way. This process of learning and change is the essence of psychotherapy.

Life can certainly be a struggle at times. Aging, whether you are just beginning to feel it or you have been moving through it for some time, is hard. Feelings of loss, depression, anger, shame, guilt and/or anxiety can waylay us and make it difficult to cope. Problems with independence, relationships, family conflicts, health issues, professional work and grief from loss can all be overwhelming. Exploring these issues in a safe, supportive environment can be helpful. By understanding what is triggering these feelings and developing tools to assist in coping, things can be less difficult and enjoyable again.

Family Therapy

What do family therapists do?

A family therapist facilitates the process of understanding and improving how a family functions. The therapist will help family members develop empathy for one another. They’ll seek to understand existing patterns, misunderstandings, and conflicts that arise, in order to help the family arrive at a realistic, unified understanding and develop the coping skills they need to build stronger relationships.

How long does therapy for families take to work?

Therapy manifests differently in every family; a common time frame is 12 weekly sessions, but some families may see improvement after just a few weeks. Families should discuss their goals with the therapist at the beginning of the process and periodically revisit those goals to assess their progress together.

How can you encourage a family member to attend family therapy?

You can encourage family members to attend therapy by expressing with both love and concern the challenges you see and explaining how a therapist could help the family navigate those challenges together. An outside perspective can help everyone feel heard, get on the same page, and develop new skills. If family members are still hesitant, it may be helpful to emphasize that family therapy is short-term—it won’t last forever.

Is therapy for families effective?

Family therapy can significantly improve family dynamics and relationships. Research suggests that family therapy can help individuals understand their role in the family, communicate and solve problems together, reduce conflict and draw boundaries when necessary, and develop coping skills for stressors, major life changes, and mental or physical illnesses within the family.
