Is your relationship in trouble? Does your relationship feel dull and lifeless? Are you at the beginning of a new relationship and want to make sure this one works out? We all need to learn how to make relationships work. There are a few things you need to know. 1. All relationships go through a cycle, and one of those cycles includes conflict. Yes, conflict is supposed to happen because it helps us grow and heal. 2. All those great feelings you had at the beginning were because of hormones, and they don't last. 3. You are in this relationship because you hold the key to each other's healing. I can help create a safe environment.

Many of us who look like we’re doing fine on the outside secretly struggle with a deep, internal fear that we are not “enough.” Many of us also know the pain of feeling marginalized in various ways. Perhaps we are exhausted managing these difficult thoughts and feelings each day. We are further worn down when others don’t recognize the harm that structural oppression causes us. While we are looking for better ways to navigate the world, we also just long to be understood and supported for the nuanced individuals we are. Can you relate? If so, a trusting relationship with a social justice-minded therapist could be meaningful to you.

Are you feeling like your own worst enemy? Is there a part of you that keeps sabotaging your chances at love, friendship, and success? Just when you start feeling like you have everything together, you screw it up (again). Maybe there is a past experience that you blame for everything. Or maybe you just keep blaming yourself. You can get past it - and no, you don't have to force yourself to forgive, or forget. You can build a fulfilling life using all the pieces of your experience that you already have. Together, we can write a story that empowers you, instead of making you smaller than you are destined to be.

My experience comes from 31 years of helping children, adults, couples and families in both Community Mental Health and Private Practice. My approach is eclectic and tailored to each individual's needs to facilitate healing and growth. Through my years of experience I have witnessed over and over again people coming into therapy with great pain, discomfort and despair but with time, (sometimes within a very short time) their symptoms diminish and a whole new person emerges. Crisis times can be extremely painful and distressful but they can also be opportunities for growth and healing through therapy.

Do you have pride in coming from tough circumstances before finding your way out? Accomplishment came out of your hard work and survival skills. To your surprise, you didn't didn't leave the past behind and find real contentment or successful relationships the way you wanted. Lack of trust in the world and others is still there. The ability to know your needs (um, I have needs?) and stay connected to yourself (ahem, feelings) is shot. Outwardly you're capable, though privately feel sensitive and alone.

Many of my clients have wounds from the past and suffer from depression, fears, perfectionism, loneliness, burn-out, weight, sleep problems, addictions, obsessions, and/or pain around their sexual orientation. It's important to process great losses and identify underlying trauma. Rape victims will find a compassionate ear.

Throughout our lives, we encounter a number of spaces where we feel our voices silenced. Continual experiences of being quieted can lead us to internalize messages that we don’t have the permission to speak – questioning whether or not to start therapy is no exception to this. As a queer, Korean-Japanese American, there have been countless times when I’ve been told that I’m not man enough, that I’m unfit for love, and that I don’t have a story to be heard. Much of my work is informed by the idea that, in order for us to heal, we must first feel like our perspective matters and that our struggles are deserving of support.
