I am trained in Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy to help individuals, families and couples.
Life is a continuous process. Maybe it is a process of relationship struggle or life transition. We may feel anxious and stuck in repetitive patterns and find it difficult to pinpoint the reason. Partnering with me, we will pay close attention to your physical sensations, embodied emotions, and internal world. My immigrant background helps me attune with BIPOC communities, especially with Asian-Americans and international students. We can use a combination of art and talk to work through anxiety, trauma, cross-cultural adjustment, low self-esteem, being a people-pleaser, or perfectionist tendency.

Life is a package. When you open it, there will be something we want; and something we don't. Sometimes, life is great; other times, without our approval, life may shift in directions we have never thought about before (e.g., an accident). The wisdom of life, in heart-breaking moments like this, depends on the choices we make; choose to dwell in the pain and be stuck (e.g., depression); or carry the pain with us, continue to move forward, and create opportunities for a meaningful life. I believe such wisdom is embedded in everybody's heart; I am committed to work with you to discovery your own wisdom and pursue a meaningful life.

“Who am I, really? Why do I keep making the same mistakes? Why do I feel haunted by my past?" Did you know that one of the most courageous things an individual can do, is to take the step towards better self understanding & processing their experiences? Yes, it’s challenging to embrace change, and face the discomfort that comes with personal growth. It’s okay. It’s totally normal to be scared of the unknown. But that well-meaning inner voice may lead you towards unnecessary struggles, self-doubts, trust issues, pressure, & away from self-compassion, staying in the present and forming meaningful connections. There's hope though!

Emotionally Focused Therapists

Who is emotionally focused therapy for?

Emotionally focused therapy (EFT) is for couples who are emotionally distressed, stuck in an unsatisfying relationship pattern or feeling deeply alienated. They may even believe the relationship is beyond repair. Very often, the partners display intense anger, fear, grief, loss of trust, or a sense of betrayal in the relationship. In addition, EFT is helpful to couples and individuals who have difficulty expressing emotions and those who have trouble regulating emotions.

Why do people need emotionally focused therapy?

People need emotionally focused therapy because the need for others is built into the brain, but the pressures of daily life can erode feelings of love, and couples often do not have the skills to find their way back to the comfort of each other. Instead, they may be stuck in repetitive patterns of anger, fear, grief, loss of trust, or a sense of betrayal. Emotionally focused therapy regards such strong negative feelings as expressions of protest over the loss of connection and turns them into pathways of reconnection.

What happens in emotionally focused therapy?

Over the course of eight to 20 weekly sessions, couples de-escalate their negative emotional reactivity to one another so that they can listen to each other and be responsive to each other’s needs. Then the deep emotional and physical bond is restored, giving partners a sense of comfort and security, which they can use to solve whatever problems come their way. The therapist plays an active role, helping partners understand how anger and withdrawal are actually misguided cries for connection.

What problems does emotionally focused therapy treat?

EFT is designed to help couples stuck in dysfunctional relationship patterns regain closeness and rebuild their relationship. Typically, such couples experience considerable distress, with partners feeling alienated and distrustful of one another, not certain their relationship can survive. EFT is also helpful to individuals experiencing attachment-related fears of loss; it helps them learn to use their fears as a way of eliciting the closeness they desire.
