Being human isn't easy. Being with other humans can be even more difficult! Looking for new ways to deal with the challenges of life, relationships, and the negative repetitive patterns in your own brain? Sometimes it helps to talk to someone in a non-judgmental, open and curious way to help sort things out, explore new ground, practice new responses to the same old patterns, or know yourself (and a loved one) in a new way.

What does sex mean to you? Is it about exploring your body and your imagination, feeling pleasure, or connecting with your partner? Many people I work with feel stuck in their sex lives. Some have found that their sex drives are different or that they don’t want the same things as their partner. They may struggle with orgasms, erections, or pain. Others have had past negative experiences that make pleasure and intimacy difficult. As a certified sex counselor and nurse practitioner, I recognize that sexual expression is a reflection of both physical and mental health and I can provide holistic support for both.

On the outside, it looks like you’ve got it all figured out, but beneath the surface, it's getting harder and harder to keep things together. You have dreams of the life that could be, but worry, stress, and self-criticism hold you back. You do so much for your career and your relationships, but always wonder if it’s enough. You wonder if YOU are enough. You’ve probably said to yourself, “I don’t NEED therapy, but…”, or “I should be able to deal with this on my own.” Let me assure you that whatever you’re going through, not only is it okay to ask for help, but it just may be the best step you can take toward living your best life!

As a former Asian international student, I juggled multiple cultures, experienced self-judgment, loneliness, and worried about being off track without a plan. I used to believe I can "fix" my feelings and emotions with each accomplishment and recognition. It's never enough as the bar gets higher and higher for me. The need for validation from others actually created more anxiety and depression, making it addictive to hear praise, acceptance, and acknowledgment in all aspects of life. However, the journey to grow into a psychotherapist changed my belief system. I'm now a believer of self-validation.

As a psychotherapist and music therapist, my approach is warm, supportive, and caring.

Our minds and bodies are powerful forces, which are wholly connected. Environmental factors, as well as belief and value systems are deeply rooted in how we present ourselves physically and emotionally. For many, painful life events can fracture the mind/body connection for the sake of survival. Adults may experience anxious and depressive thoughts. Relationships may see increased tension and/or codependent traits. Healing from therapeutic intervention is recognizing unhelpful “parts” and bringing love, appreciation and competency to your internal world.

What type of Ithaca mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Ithaca?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
