As a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) my clinical style encompasses a foundation of empathy, support, and encouragement. Fostering a trusting therapeutic relationship with my client is important to me as it allows for a nonjudgmental and validating environment to assist my clients in their healing process. Clients will find a respectful and accepting atmosphere where we can work on the identified aims of treatment together.
I have been a clinical psychologist for over 40 years and have assisted people with a wide range of human concerns: depression, anxiety, fear, trauma, relationships, and the ordinary challenges in life's journey. My experience as a child therapist has been useful in supporting parents and grandparents. Whether people seek to know themselves better or are troubled by life's circumstances, our work together is to create the changes sought, and, in the process, make the necessary choices to attain self-sufficiency through emotional understanding and independence; substituting a healthy curiosity for shame, self-judgment and guilt.
Each person has a unique story to share. But too often, we burry our feelings and thoughts--our true stories--in order to survive in the world. We may feel anxious, depressed, confused, or angry about what is happening in our lives. Maybe that's where you are right now: feeling like what you are doing is just not working and desperate to gain some understanding and sense of control.
I have a passion for listening to people and helping them unpack their current struggles to develop skills needed to grow and move forward. I take pride in creating a non-judgemental and safe space to explore struggles with my clients. I graduated with my masters in social work from the University of Chicago and my masters in theology from the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago. I have worked with people who were coming from many different walks of life and facing many different challenges. I have worked with children as well as families, couples, and individual adults.
Mental health is health. We often talk about the "mind/body connection," neglecting to realize that the brain is indeed part of the body, it is all one. So many of us are walking around emotionally wounded. Most of us have not been taught to think critically about our life experiences, emotions, and triggers, we're simply just reacting and not understanding why we're struggling. In my practice, I work with people to make connections, heal from past hurts, and understand their feelings. I specialize in working with women, but provide services to men and folks anywhere across the gender spectrum.
We are a group practice with highly trained therapists who specialize in working with children, adolescents, adults, couples and families. Our approach is individualized and tailored to the person we are working with. Our clinical interests include, but are not limited to, working with anxiety, depression, trauma, post traumatic stress disorder, and LGBTQ-related concerns and gender affirming care.
Life is overwhelming at times. I am dedicated to helping you resolve your stressful issues and achieve happiness. I use EMDR, Cognitive-Behavior Therapy (CBT) and Positive Psychotherapy in my practice. I can also integrate the expressive therapies as a therapeutic tool at your request. My office is located in the Great Valley Corporate Center for your convenience. Please checkout my website for more info: www.expressivecounselingassociates.com.
An ideal client would be an individual that finds something missing. If you feel that there's an obstacle that is stopping you from achieving and reaching your goals, my practice can help you figure it out. Whether it's depression, anxiety, stress, family/social pressure, trauma, I use a number of therapeutic approaches to help you work through issues and concerns, develop the tools to cope with future obstacles and achieve your goals. I have strong background in mental health, substance abuse treatment, and physical health so I can provide a well-rounded therapeutic experience.
Each person's journey through heartache will yield its own secrets to the listening heart. It would be my privilege to share this journey with you. My practice, is a place of safety where you can enjoy a counseling experience in which your heart finds shelter, rest and freedom. I will provide a safe haven, a time and place where you can speak freely and openly - perhaps to begin to know your own heart for the first time. As we work together, you will be empowered to give words to those feelings your heart may have difficulty expressing.
Sometimes personal thoughts and feelings about life can be upsetting, disturbing, seem incomprehensible or even unchangeable. Over time these kinds of experiences can erode our personal sense of vitality, meaningfulness, freedom, and overall wellbeing. Although we know that some suffering is a normal part of life, suffering needlessly or endlessly simply does not have to be. In my office I provide a quiet, comfortable, respectful, and very confidential atmosphere.

I have been working in the field of mental health for the past 28 years. I have enjoyed helping to change the lives not only of my clients but also the lives of those they love. It takes courage to be able to recognize that a change needs to be made and to be able to reach out for help. Whether you are struggling with anxiety, depression, addiction, codependency, self injury, marital or family conflict, grief and despair as well as other concerns.. there is hope. When you are ready, I will be there to help you improve your life.
Life provides us with an endless stream of challenges, some of which we can face more easily than others. At times we may need a supportive space to work through those challenges. Whether you are facing anxiety, depression, grief, major life transitions, or other challenges that you may not even have a name for, therapy can provide a space to better understand what you are facing, what your options are for moving through it, and what is possible on the other side.
Many people look for a counselor because something in life isn't working - a challenging relationship, inability to cope with life's stress in a healthy way, a lack of joy or peace, or some harmful behavior that is out of control. Trying to change on our own isn't working and we've hit a dead end. As a licensed counselor, it's my passion to help you discover a way to navigate these difficulties and move forward toward a life of purpose, fulfillment, and joy.
I often view my work as supporting bodies in transition - in whatever form that comes. Many of my clients are those with medical illness or injury, caregivers, mothers, or trauma survivors who are faced with the impact that change in their physical self has on their mental and emotional well-being. Clients often wish to explore the mind-body connection, integrate non-verbal approaches, or find a new perspective on therapy. I also work with infants and children who deserve the same compassionate care, but don't benefit from verbal therapy in the same way.
Anxious. Overwhelmed. Stressed. Going away to college. Going through a break-up. Starting a new job. Moving. Trying to get through this pandemic! Sound familiar? Let's chat! My clients are women in their 20s (some in college, some post-college trying to adjust to "real life") & 30s. Many are high achievers with great insight and are trying to gain clarity into their life's calling and/or relationships, while others have high-functioning anxiety, and still others are experiencing a stressful season of life and need help getting "unstuck."

In therapy you are my co-worker where you bring what you know about living your life. We bring your family members to help support your therapy when we see that as helpful to you. We also set up support for you through your community of human and non-human life.

Unresolved pain and unnamed hungers in our lives create serious ruptures in our here and now. Disruptive mood patterns and compulsions are signs of emotional injury that deserve a space to be held and cared for. Therapy is a place for this work and can be the site where the mind, body, & spirit become a family again. I support folx through a healing and relational framework to re-connect with values, in hopes to take committed action towards goals and wishes. My practice focuses on the mental wellness needs of the Asian-American community and men struggling with toxic hook-up culture and intimacy in relationships.
As a therapist, I strive to provide my patients with a balance of validation and challenge. When we feel stuck, it can seem impossible to take action and make change. Together, we can explore your strengths and how those can guide you through your fears and anxieties. I utilize a strength-based, trauma-focused approach that is designed to treat you as an individual, with all the unique experiences and perspectives you bring to the therapy setting.
