You are stuck in a dark maze carrying the crushing pressure of the world to succeed on your chest. While everybody is at the finish line of the race, you are handcuffed to the beginning of the line. The isolation and loneliness feel like a void in the pit of your stomach that is never filled. The emotions are like waves in the ocean, when it comes, it drowns you, and when it's quiet, it's boxed up in a container ready to explode. My post-grad includes the New York School for Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy with extensive training in AEDP (focus on here-and-now relational and body - somatic) and EMDR for dating and breakups.

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.

Psychoanalytic Therapists

Does psychoanalytic therapy work?

Psychoanalytic therapy derives from the work of Sigmund Freud. In this type of therapy, discovering buried thoughts and emotions from the unconscious will help a person work through their difficulties and negative behaviors. Research shows that psychoanalytic therapy can be highly effective, with patients reporting improvement in mood, quality of life, and overall well-being.

How long are people typically in psychoanalytic therapy?

Traditional psychoanalysis is in-depth and is conducted in five sessions every week. Today, modern psychoanalytic therapy is less intense and normally incorporates as few as one or two sessions a week. In some cases, positive change can occur quickly. However, if the condition, difficulty, or behavior is deep-seated, improvement may require many months or years of therapy.

Is psychoanalytic therapy suitable for young people?

Children and adolescents can benefit from this type of therapy. Many kids and teens are often unable to form and communicate their thoughts and emotions. Psychoanalytic therapy uses specific techniques such as dream analysis, symbolism, and free association or word association; all of which can be useful tools for less-communicative young people. Through this therapy, a patient will hopefully make connections between what they feel inside and how the world works outside.

Can psychoanalytic therapy be done online?

Modern-day psychoanalytic therapy is very different from traditional psychoanalysis. While an individual can sit face-to-face with the psychoanalyst for multiple sessions a week, they do not have to. Today, psychoanalytic therapy can be effectively conducted online or by phone. The key is that the individual confronts what is repressed and avoided, and this can be done whether in person or over online video.
