Anxiety/Depression: Many of my patients have similar problems at home and at work: STRESS: "Why do I feel angry or frustrated all the time? Why did I over-react or feel uncomfortable when he/she said that? What's going on here? Why am I being treated this way? Did I do something to encourage this treatment? Even at work I have conflict. I need to stand up for myself but how and what to say? I don't want to be written up by H. R. I can't seem to keep a healthy relationship going. I don't understand myself and why I keep repeating the same mistakes! I have a relationship, a career... I'm not satisfied. Is this it? REALLY?"

Psychoanalytic work is a journey taken by two people - the therapist and the patient. I think of psychoanalytic work as a voyage of discovery. Here is a safe place where you can stop, take your time, look, listen to yourself. A place to go when you feel stuck in your life. I have psychodynamic and multicultural perspectives to work with individuals with issues that maybe very specific - a relationship, a job, a developmental issue, repetitive thoughts and rituals, trouble with addictions, a death, a marriage, family issues. Or it could be more perplexing - a vague feeling something is wrong.

Psychotherapy alleviates suffering and expands your capacity to live a fulfilling life. It helps you to build stronger relationships, find satisfaction in work, be more creative, and achieve your goals - whatever they may be. Good psychotherapy works through collaboration; we work together to understand your experiences, memories and relationships in order to create openings for change. My practice is diverse across race, nationality, ethnicity, gender, sexuality and age. I believe that therapists must be sensitive to social issues and must bring into treatment an understanding of the suffering and trauma caused by marginalization.

I provide an opportunity for people to freely express their feelings and thoughts to achieve the changes they desire. I work interactively with clients so they may develop their strengths and achieve their goals. Assisting individuals in becoming at ease with their feelings, however difficult they may be, is an important aspect of the work I do. Feelings can become useful tools for living rather than disturbing impediments. The ubiquitous problems of uncomfortable feelings, harmful behaviors, and the challenges of relationships, careers and parenting are common areas of focus.

"I have walked through many lives, some of them my own, and I am not who I was though some principle of being abides, from which I struggle not to stray." These lines, from "The Layers", by Stanley Kunitz, hint at the themes we will explore if you decide to enter psychotherapy with me: Who have you been, and who are you now? What principle of being has shaped your life's journey thus far? Where and when did you disregard this principle? And how may I support you in your effort to recognize and honor your most authentic self?

The world is focused on the health, social and economic ravages of COVID-19—and yet humans can only control one's own internal world of emotions, thoughts and behaviors. When these are unbalanced, we experience anxiety, depression and perhaps externalizing symptoms such as addictions and relationship conflict. The added stress of the pandemic may make it more difficult to cope than usual. This may be an opportunity to do much needed work on the most important relationship you have—the one with yourself! How else will all the other important relationships in your life be healthy and rewarding? You be the change!

People seek therapy out for many reasons, in essence, people just want to feel better. We want to feel less stressed, less depressed, less anxious, less angry. We want to feel more happy, more passionate, more sexual, more satisfied with our life, relationships, and careers. How does this magical shift happen? Actually, no magic required, just the courage to take the first step in knowing you want to experience your life differently than how you are experiencing it today. Through purposeful dialogue and a supportive and empathic environment this shift in living and perspective is not only possible but probable.

Life can be difficult at times. A person could feel "dissatisfied with life," "unhappy," or "unfulfilled," despite all the efforts. Collaborating with a skilled psychotherapist could help a person identify and break the maladaptive patterns, make positive changes in life, and experience more happiness and freedom. I am a bilingual (Chinese & English) psychologist with over 15 years of training and experience. I adopt an integrative and holistic style, blending elements of Psychodynamic, Interpersonal, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and existential approaches through the lens of culture.

Before I came to New York, I was a lecturer in medical school and a neuroscientist. I was interested in the wonders of the brain from a scientist's point of view. My focus, over the last decade, has shifted from the brain to the mind. I think of psychoanalysis as a profound journey of understanding of oneself. Its purpose is to help people to understand feelings, behaviors, and habits that are troubling to them and to enrich their lives with new creativity, more fulfilling careers, and more meaningful relationships.

My work as a clinical psychologist has grown out of my interest in the interplay of how we develop, what we experience, and how we make our way through our challenges. My commitment in the therapeutic process is to a thoughtful understanding of how your experiences have brought you to this point and what the underlying causes of difficulty in your life are. Through our collaboration we work in an atmosphere of respect to deepen that understanding, reduce distress, create better ways of coping, promote healing, and structure changes that allow for greater balance and the possibility of joy.
