My expertise also spans LGBTQ and Asian-American concerns.
Are you a creative, tender soul confronted with issues of self-worth and having trouble getting your needs met? Do you strive to ensure you're liked, accepted, and approved of at the expense of expressing your authentic self or pursuing what you truly desire? Are you your own worst critic, rarely giving yourself a break from the burden of shame, blame, and guilt? I believe in our true state of being, we are all already brilliant and whole. My job therefore is not to "fix" or "cure" you, but to help you reconnect with your innate resources so you can naturally heal and grow.

I integrate culturally sensitive approach to work with Asians/Asian Americans.
Hello lovely people, life is short and how can we live the best of it? How to deal with 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, understanding, and accepting the full range of human emotion. It’s important to feel the 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 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.

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.

As a first generation Asian American, I am attuned to the experiences of those exposed to more than one culture and their individual experiences.
These days, we are busy and stressed. It seems that the tasks never end, and the work never stops. Everyday seems to have something new that can potentially bring down a delicate balance that we have worked so hard to achieve. We hear about self-care and work/life balance, but we struggle to do these things. You want to do it all but there never seems to be enough time. Sometimes work, school, family, friends, or anything else makes it difficult for you to have some time to process and think.

Having been born in the Philippines and moving to the US at a young age, I also offer insights on the immigrant and Asian/Asian-American experience.
My role is to hold space and provide compassionate, open-minded support for clients as they work through life’s challenges and dive into the process of discovering who they are on a deeper level. As an art therapist, I also offer experience in the use of art making as a non-verbal, creative means of expressing emotions, building inner resources, and developing personal agency. Sometimes it can be difficult to describe our internal world with words alone, but the combination of art and traditional talk therapy can make for a powerful mode of healing. If you are looking to create a new narrative, I am here to collaborate with you!

Reaching out for help is a vital first step in addressing the challenges we face. My goal as your therapist is to foster a safe space, without judgment, for you to explore those challenges and work through your thoughts freely. Every individual is unique and has their own experiences. How those experiences and your beliefs shape the struggles and strengths are important to me. Together, we will approach challenges with curiosity and care rather than hunt for a diagnosis and “cure.” With patience and consistency, we will build and actualize a treatment plan for your journey towards self-growth.

We have seasons in our lives that are filled with stress, anxiety, sadness, frustration, guilt, grief, and even hopelessness. It can be overwhelming, stuck in a place where we cannot see a way forward, unable to change unwanted and repeated behaviors, where no one seems to understand or able to help, feeling alone, and even ashamed. Or you may be going through transitions, significant changes in work, family, relationships, and are understandably overwhelmed with uncertainty and feelings of loss. If this has been your experience, there is help to walk towards healing and renewal.

I believe that the ultimate goal of therapy is to alleviate pain and suffering, and that everyone has the capacity for growth and change. By developing a caring, empathic, and trusting relationship with my clients, it becomes possible to gain insight and clarity about relationships, problems and personal patterns. It is through this process that one can grow and realize a level of peace and acceptance. I also believe that genuine growth is only possible when I view the clients I work with through the lens of multiple personal identities (e.g., sexual orientation, gender) and cultural identities (e.g., race/ethnicity, religion). I am proficient in Mandarin and can understand 3 other Chinese dialects. Having lived in Asia a significant part of my life, I am familiar with Asian cultural issues.

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.

Teletherapy
Teletherapy and Online counseling have grown enormously as a medium for therapy since the advent of social distancing. Most therapists are happy to provide sessions by video or phone.

All professionals are licensed to provide video therapy to clients within the State in which they hold their license. Cross State licensing exists, but is rare.

So if you're a client in New York, this list of teletherapists are licensed to provide therapy to you online (by phone, video or text based chat) because they are within your state. They are sorted nearest to furthest, with professionals in New York listed first.

Teletherapy via phone or video can be very similar to conventional in person sessions. The message is the same, even if the medium is different. There are some advantages in the form of convenience, lack of travel and being in comfort of your own home. Set against those, professionals find it more difficult to read non-verbal signals of their clients, and you may find you yourself can be more easily distracted.
