I love helping adults who are ready to make a change and want to address: trauma, relationship difficulties, issues with food and body image, chronic stress, anxiety, panic, or depression through building tangible tools and mindfulness-based skills. I welcome clients of diverse backgrounds and seek to provide respectful and culturally sensitive services to all. As an immigrant myself, I have a special appreciation for the experience of first and second generation immigrants. My approach draws from mindfulness, body-oriented interventions, parts work, evidence-based modalities, advances in neuroscience, and attachment research.

It takes courage to reach out for support. Often people reach out when their usual strategies to manage their life fail, and they feel stuck. Are you feeling like you can't think or talk your way out of your unhappiness? The role of the therapist is as a facilitator or guide to help you identify the patterns that are no longer working for you, and develop strategies to heal and change. I will work with you to develop a plan in therapy that meets your individual needs and goals. My style is to give a combination of compassion, honest feedback, non-judgment, humor, and warmth.

I work with clients experiencing emotional distress, adjustment difficulty, and communication challenges. I specialize in loss and grief. In thinking about Grief and Loss, divorce or death often come to mind. With more than 13 years' experience in helping individuals dealing with life-threatening illnesses and coping issues, I came to realize that each of us goes through different forms of loss throughout our lives-not just at the end of life. In that we may lose some small part of ourselves to meet others' expectation or society's requirements we sometimes require rebalancing to who we really are.

I use many different tools to facilitate change, including CBT and ACT for symptom relief and the techniques and processes of Hakomi, a body-centered depth psychotherapy, which integrates western psychology, advances in neurobiology, and the mindfulness practices of Buddhist Meditation. I believe that decreasing unhealthy stress, restoring trust in relationships, and changing self-limiting belief systems can lead to transformation.

All of us at times need help making sense of transitions, losses, trauma. To arrive at self-understanding, having a compassionate listener can be greatly beneficial. Using the lenses of somatic therapy and deep listening, I am a skillful guide through life changing events, and a reflective witness to change. I work somatically and psychodynamically to diagnose and begin a course of treatment. Treatment can be brief, focused on a solution to a specific problem. Alternatively, treatment can be an in-depth process of listening together to the new Self emerging: respecting, defining, amplifying this new voice.

Out of Network Therapists
An out-of-network Therapist in Berkeley has not agreed to any set rate with your insurer. Your plan may require higher co-pays, deductibles and co-insurance for out-of-network care and you may need to pay the difference between your insurer's allowed amount and what the Therapist charges.

The costs for a Berkeley out-of-network Therapist also depend on your type of plan:

In a Health Maintenance Organization, or HMO, or Exclusive Provider Network, or EPO, you generally have to pay the full cost of any out-of-network care.

In a Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) or Point-of-Service (POS) plan, you will usually have to pay a higher deductible and or a higher co-pay plus a higher percentage co-insurance plus, the difference between the allowed amount and your provider's actual rate.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Berkeley are able to work with a wide range of issues and communities, including the BIPOC community in Berkeley. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Berkeley
