Getting to the core of why you think, act, and behave the way you do is the key to creating the life you want — the life you’re meant to live. If you’re someone who’s felt stuck, keeps coming back to the same destructive patterns, or has tried therapy before but didn’t gain lasting change, you have come to the right place.

Together we will explore your feelings, attitudes and perceptions towards these challenges and work to empower you to overcome these obstacles and live an emotionally healthy life.

I am trained in Emotionally Focused Therapy, working with couples.
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.

Hope. Healing. Understanding. You deserve to live a fulfilling life with healthy relationships and satisfying life choices. I look forward to helping you along that journey. It is natural and common to be "blocked" or "stuck" as one travels through life's challenges. It is normal to feel sad, frustrated, confused... to feel like no one understands what you are going through, even a partner or your family members. I am an experienced clinician who has successfully helped many individuals, couples and families understand the barriers to meeting their needs and identify the ways and means to move forward.

As a psychologist for 42 years, 21 years as a school-psychologist, 22 years in private practice, I am frequently asked about my areas of specialty or my modes of treatment. I explain that what WE do (therapy is a joint effort) has everything to do with the person sitting in front of me. Everyone brings his or her own problems, histories, relationships, personalities, situations, and resources into therapy and it is not a one size fits all paradigm. And as similar as we humans are, we are each of us, unique.

The individuals who I normally practice with are mostly adults. My clients may come from various backgrounds and have different symptoms. They are eager and motivated to work through their emotional, cognitive and relational difficulties to better themselves and reduce symptoms of anxiety, worry, confusion, social withdrawal, preoccupations and addictive behaviors. Even if at the beginning they may feel ambivalent, they tend to develop a trusting working relationship with me and jointly work towards their treatment goals.

Emotionally Focused Therapists
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is an approach to therapy that helps clients identify their emotions, learn to explore and experience them, to understand them and then to manage them. Emotionally Focused Therapy embraces the idea that emotions can be changed, first by arriving at or 'living' the maladaptive emotion (e.g. loss, fear or shame) in session, and then learning to transform it. Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples seeks to break the negative emotion cycles within relationships, emphasizing the importance of the attachment bond between couples, and how nurturing of the attachment bonds and an empathetic understanding of each others emotions can break the cycles.
