Lesbian, bisexual, gay, straight, queer, questioning, pansexual, asexual, trans, transgender, transsexual, nonbinary, genderqueer, gender nonconforming, detransitioner, kinky, BDSM, sex worker, vanilla, monogamous, single, polyamorous, even unicorn – let's improve your life.
We can all live rewarding, empowered lives. As someone with multiple intersecting identities, I understand the horrific effects of trauma, stigma, and mental/emotional health. I seek to establish a comfortable environment in which we can safely ask questions to help you make empowered decisions while we simultaneously investigate questions of meaning. I never require a client ‘prove’ their identity to me.

I believe that every individual can benefit from psychotherapy. In life, one will encounter hardship; psychotherapy offers a safe space for individuals to receive support without judgment or thinking they are beholden to someone. In my therapeutic work, I strive to help individuals face a variety of challenges, such as grief, depression, life transitions, gender and sexual identity concerns, and fertility issues. I specialize in working with cancer patients and their families, LGBTQ+ and disabled folx, which is informed by my positionality as an Asian-American cisgender lesbian that is a caregiver to someone with metastatic cancer.

I have particular expertise in working with individuals who are part of transgender, non-binary, queer, lesbian, gay, and bisexual communities or exploring their relationship to those identities.
The decision to begin therapy is rarely easy, but once you begin you may be surprised by the changes that unfold. Finding a therapist who helps you feel safe, supported, and challenged is central to this process. I've been fortunate to work with a wide range of people, including those dealing with depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship challenges, self-esteem issues, sexual issues, sexual and gender identity exploration, health concerns, artistic blockages, addiction, parenting, and fertility issues.

I provide individual psychotherapy and psychoanalysis, a more intensive form of psychotherapeutic work. My job is to help you to find a way beyond the dead-end, so that you can ultimately move on from the limitations of your current situation.

Gay men and lesbian women face many challenges that are specific to them. It is important to find a therapist that understands your unique experience as a queer person in a culture that promotes heterosexuality as the norm. Whether it's past traumas or internalizing the stigma that we have been exposed to, we all have life events that impact the way we see the world today. For queer people, our worldview may be impacted by our time in the closet, messages we receive from media, and the different communities we belong to.
