I believe that each of us have great capacity for personal growth. Psychotherapy can be a powerful and effective modality in the process of better understanding ourselves and in working toward change. I specialize in attachment-related issues that often result in vulnerabilities that affect one's current relationships as well as one's sense of self worth. I also have a focus on identity issues related to race, culture, and sexual orientation with a focus on the experience of Asian , biracial, and multiracial people. Additionally, I have extensive experience in treating healthcare workers affected by trauma and burnout.

As an immigrant and Asian woman, I believe I can better understand peoples’ struggles when they are from a different cultural background.
Life is full of struggles and surprises, and we often feel trapped and have no hope. It is common to have negative thoughts and beliefs, to experience lack of motivation and burn out when we try to move through our life. Struggling with your thoughts and feelings can really affect your daily life. “It is okay to not feel okay!” Emotions and thoughts are two very complicated things and a lot of the time they tangle together. With patience, empathy, authenticity, and wanting to discover depth with the client, people can see more clearly from their past and have a goal for the future.

Taking New Clients: Everyone has the essential ingredients for positiv change. Individuals and couples who seek my support are in a difficult moment or intersection in life; seeking resolution between internal and external pressures; seeking satisfaction and harmony in relationships, identity, career, society, etc. I support clients who seek to deepen and broaden their perspective on who they are and who they want to become by examining self-limiting narratives, refining self-mastery, and cultivating self-compassion. BIPOC and multicultural clients often seek my support as well as those who want more from therapy than just insight.

I offer therapy without ideology for fair-minded people who have lost trust in counselors: victims of gender medicine and their families; the politically homeless; and others who've become increasingly afraid to express their views due to institutional capture. My clients often struggle with isolation, despair, compassion fatigue, stress, trauma, burnout, work-life balance, emotion regulation, conflict, productivity, sleep, habits, and finding meaning & fulfillment in life. I also enjoy helping couples reduce defensiveness, open up communication, move through challenging transitions, and deepen their capacity for intimacy together.

As a clinical psychologist trained as an integrationist, I enjoy working with people from a holistic perspective. I believe it is important to consider not only what is going on in the present, but also what has happened developmentally, biologically, interpersonally,and cognitively. In addition to conceptualizing our experiences as people from a systems perspective, I conduct individual, group, and family therapy using a DBT-informed frame of practice. What this means is that change comes about by learning new behaviors in a variety of contexts while balancing the reality of a person's situation and skill level with acceptance.

Conflicts, anxiety and overwhelm in our lives may be showing us that we want to look and respond from a new perspective. The new year can be a moment to create a path forward that is directed by self awareness and wholeness. I enjoy collaborating with women to develop self leadership and exploring the connections and habits that brings peace and understanding to relational and emotional conflicts. I also provide therapy to other therapists and helpers who want to bring their own hurting parts to safety and develop trust in themselves as they find their path toward peace. I help healers seeking healing.

Have you ever felt like you're either "too much" or "not enough"? This could be a general struggle, or it could be related to a specific trait (i.e. too Asian /not Asian enough or too Queer/not Queer enough). Perhaps you struggle to belong and don't feel like you quite fit anywhere. Or maybe factors such as perfectionism, self-doubt, overthinking, or comparison to others are creating problems in your life. All of these issues are quite common, but can also be extremely nuanced. I understand and I can help.

As a second-generation Asian American born to refugee parents, I understand the feelings of wanting to develop cultural identity and the overwhelming need to figure out your true self.
My specialty is working with individuals that identify with communities of color, multicultural identities, and second or third generation adult children of immigrants. I am passionate about working with adults who might be feeling stuck or stagnant, finding themselves repeating old patterns, and just wanting to do things differently. I support people in finding a deeper understanding of themselves and the world around them. Sometimes it takes a little support from a therapist to make the changes we want. I understand the importance of creating a nurturing space to unpack our experiences, explore, challenge, and redefine ourselves.

As a 2nd gen Asian -American born to immigrant parents, my cultural identity has been one of depth and confusion. Holding values from my parent’s home countries, mixed with my American values; it has widened my understanding of mental health from a cultural lens. I'd like to provide a space for those exploring their identities and culture and how it has played a part in your upbringing and development. I understand family values are important, but sometimes can conflict with our own individual goals and experiences. In the space, I hope you can feel comfortable to casually show up as you are with a mix of diving into the experience.

Through a social justice lens, I accompany people on their journey to a more grounded and liberated life by exploring how our intersecting identities and cultural experiences have led to the ways we are hurt, but also hold the keys to how we heal. For my clients, these layers of oppression may result in anxiety, depression, and racial identity concerns. We'll work together to process your experience, draw out your strengths, and support your goals. I love working with Asian American adults, and other POC, to connect the impacts of history, oppression, and culture on mental health and wellbeing.
