Whether you struggle with depression or anxiety, are stuck repeating old patterns, or seek support for a specific goal, therapy can be a tool for decreasing stress, building self-compassion, and re-discovering yourself. I offer a safe, collaborative, and nonjudgmental space for you to explore your feelings, while finding the path that leads you to more joy and fulfillment in life. My Asian American identity helps me attune more easily with cross-cultural and intergenerational issues, and I work with both English and Mandarin-speaking patients. I also specialize in working with teens who are struggling with depression and anxiety.

I integrate a culturally-sensitive approach, especially when working with Asian / Asian -American and other BIPOC individuals.
Hello lovely people, life is short and how can we live the best of it? How can you manage work stress and social anxiety? Do you often doubt yourself, feel lonely or sad, and can't find purpose in life? I believe psychotherapy is not only about curing or resolving pain, but also increasing awareness and understanding and accepting the full range of human emotion. It’s important to feel our different emotions and learn how to express ourselves fully. I am specialized in the treatment of anxiety, depression, intimacy, low self-esteem, trauma, interpersonal relationships, and self-exploration.

I have have extensive experience working with Asian Americans and other communities of color, immigrants, Millennials, Gen Z, college students, and healthcare workers.
We all need spaces in our lives to be seen and heard. There are times, however, when it can be hard to find those spaces of acceptance, non-judgment, and problem solving. I will work with you to explore and find solutions to the challenges that come with navigating the realities of our complicated lives. My approach in therapy focuses on each person's unique stories, strengths, and resilience, from a space of empathy, and concrete tools to move forward. I believe that therapy is a collaborative process that balances spaces of acceptance with change, which is based in cognitive & dialectical behavioral therapy (CBT) and (DBT).

As an Asian American therapist, I’ve helped many immigrant and Asian American clients focus on issues of identity and personal agency.
I work collaboratively with my clients to help them understand the thought patterns, belief systems, and expectations that influence how they move through the world. It is a process whereby, together, we bring the hidden pushes and pulls of their lives into clearer relief and empower them to make the desired changes in their lives.

Are you feeling overwhelmed in areas of your life including career, relationships, family; or notice you are repeating the same patterns? Perhaps, you are looking for ways to create a more balanced life and build closer relationships. Maybe you are looking for more fulfillment and meaning than your job provides, or experiencing unhappiness but you are unsure what to do about it. I understand that life can be hectic and sometimes we can get caught up in the events of daily life, experiencing anxiety or doubts about ourselves.

If you are South Asian American, listen up: Being your own person does not make you less of a Brown person; it makes you a more genuine one. If you have been ever labeled the "Black sheep" of your community or family, been told that you are too "Whitewashed", "Too South Asian ", or "Not Brown enough", you've come to the right place. Maybe you've struggled to belong in your community, but you belong right here! That's why I go by "The Bad Indian Therapist", because as someone who was raised Indian and Catholic, I've also been called these things too. We won't fit anyone's definition of "South Asian ", so let's be "bad" together!

Many of my clients have dealt with navigating various conflicting sub-cultures, painful upbringings that affect their adulthood, complex relationships while preserving self-love, and/or delayed and assumed life goals. Specifically, I've worked with clients struggling with general anxiety, depression, past/current relational trauma, and emotional turmoil that stems from loved ones (family or romantic) and in the workplace. Being bilingual in Korean and understanding Asian culture, I'm also able to help navigate the often times contradicting cultures.

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.

Are you feeling uncertain whether or not your issues deserve to be shared, or if you want to share them at all? Starting therapy can be scary and exciting at the same time. I will gently guide you to ease into this journey. Gradually, we will together build a warm space for you to relax, express, struggle and grow.

As an Asian queer therapist, I incorporate multicultural and feminist theories into my practice.
In a city where millions of people pretend to be someone they are not, an authentic self might be the most luxurious thing for one to own and celebrate. However, I believe that we can still make it without having to fake it. I am here to hold space for you to express, explore, and embrace yourself. By creating a judgment-free, gender-expansive, sex-positive, poly-affirming, and kink-friendly environment, I hope to help you transform moments of challenge into opportunities for empowerment.

How can I find a therapist in New York?

Search for nearby therapists or counselors by inputting your city, town, or suburb; or zip code; or a provider’s name into the search bar.

To navigate between locations within the same country, enter a new city or zip code into the search bar.

Learn more about how to find a therapist.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online or over the phone can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your zip code.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counselor?

Therapists, psychologists, and counselors are all licensed mental health professionals. In the United States, psychologists have earned a doctoral degree. The terms “therapist” and “counselor” are used somewhat interchangeably, but generally therapists offer longer-term, mental health care, while counselors offer shorter-term care that may focus on one domain, such as marriage, career, or academic challenges.

What type of therapist is right for me?

Clients should consider factors such as insurance coverage and their primary reason(s) for seeking therapy to determine the type of professional best suited to their needs. Someone struggling with mental health challenges such as depression or anxiety, for example, may wish to seek out a clinical psychologist, psychologist or therapist, while someone navigating career obstacles or marital upheaval may benefit from seeing a counselor who can offer short-term, targeted support.

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

The Psychology Today directory lists providers who offer legitimate mental health services to the public, including psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and counselors. Many have been licensed by the country or state where they practice; providers whose license or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Some clinicians or organizations provide services for which their state or country does not offer licenses, such as pastoral counseling. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.

What type of therapy is right for me?

The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.

Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?

Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.
