"While we all share the universal human condition, how we understand, express, and manage our emotions varies vastly based on our unique history and cultural blueprint.

I also have a specialty in reproductive mental health, assisting individuals considering fertility treatment or building families through the assistance of egg/sperm donation and/or gestational surrogacy.

"I wonder if you believe your problems can define who you are. Because sometimes I do too. But I also believe what defines us more whether we challenge, and how we meet, them. Problems are opportunities for recognizing strengths, adding to our toolboxes, to use with current problems, and apply to those in the future. I strive to be real, active, and collaborative. It's important that I understand you through listening, asking questions, and making sure I'm getting your point of view. I offer assistance, focused attention, professional experience, enthusiasm, encouragement and, where appropriate, humor."

"If you have made your way to this page, you are probably struggling with a "relationship problem"--either with someone else, or with yourself. This is likely causing you significant emotional pain. Your predicament may have been triggered by a recent event, such as loss or trauma, or may have lingered and festered for years. Your symptoms may vary--you may experience persistent discontent, loneliness, emptiness...; have difficulty finding or sustaining a relationship, or have a spouse who wants you to get "fixed".You may be battling addiction or a destructive behavior that is thwarting your life, but impossible to give up, despite endless attempts."

"I believe that the most effective form of therapy is one where the therapist and the client can have a collaborative and authentic relationship. I strive to create a therapeutic environment that facilitates perceiving, thinking, sensing, feeling, expressing, connecting, and relating. My treatment approach is quite integrative but not without focus. I believe that a unique therapy experience should be created for each person."

"You are a first or second-generation Asian American navigating between two worlds. You experience difficulty fitting in with the mainstream; or you blend in easily, but worry about losing touch with a core part of who you are. You also suspect that you inherited some unhealthy emotional and relationship patterns from your parents. There is a gnawing sense of wishing you were different, and you often don't feel understood by your family because of your career or relationship choices. You have achieved a lot in your career, but something is missing - you want more."
