When collaborating with individuals and couples, my queer identity and research interest in relational conflict has deepened my knowledge of diverse gender-sexual experiences and those facing relationship challenges.

Whether you have problems with depression, self-esteem, LGBTQIA -related issues (I am LGBTQIA ), or something else, I can offer insight, tools to push you forward, and support for the course.
Do you want to change how you feel, your habits, or how you interact with others? You deserve a therapist who will listen with empathy and offer insight without judgment, someone who will help you figure out what is holding you back and how to overcome it. This may require examining your perceptions, your interactions, and even your history. Evidence-based techniques and coping mechanisms may also be helpful.

I specialize in working with gay men and gay couples, particularly when it comes to sexual issues and inhibitions.
Therapy works best when it helps us get in touch with things we are unaware of and which cause us discomfort. We are all motivated to avoid painful thoughts, feelings, and memories. That lack of awareness can sometimes cause pain or worry, or influence the way we behave and create difficulties in our personal and professional lives. Together we will discover and process these painful thoughts and feelings in a safe and supportive environment. This process can take a lot of work but can be transformative, often leading to a greater sense of personal choice and freedom.

I also specialize in LGBTQ + issues, being a Queer therapist myself.
People are complex, with intricate issues and complicated histories. The ideal client for my virtual private practice is someone who is willing to open up and take the time to explain what makes them “tick”, someone who is ready to take a journey of self-discovery and is interested in finding tangible skills to help them with a variety of needs. Change will not happen in one session, but it can start its course…

It can help us reflect on how to manage difficult life changes, loneliness and challenging relationships. Everyone experiences stress and worry, and speaking with a therapist who is nonjudgmental and accepting can help us understand how to meet our professional, personal, and relationship needs. I am a psychotherapist with 8+ years experience. I use a practical and flexible approach to treat problems such as anxiety, depression, substance misuse and LGBTQ + concerns.

I often work with folks around the following topics: trauma, 

 LGBTQIA + identity, race, gender, emerging identities, life transitions, neurodiversity, and 
transracial/transnational adoption.
I’m passionate about supporting people along their healing journeys and paths of self-discovery. I don’t believe we seek out therapy because we are “flawed” or because we need to be “fixed.” Instead, I view therapy as a powerful act of self-care when navigating challenging systems, -isms, circumstances and relationships. My own lived experience as a neurodivergent Korean adoptee drives my commitment to practicing from a place that holds space for - and celebrates- each person’s multiple and intersecting identities.
