I work with couples and adult individuals with relationship issues, depression, anxiety, and life transition issues.
Therapy is about change. What I enjoy most about my work is witnessing people make real changes in their lives and relationships. Many people have habitual ways of thinking, acting and interacting that do not lead to the outcomes they hope for in life. I see my role as therapist as one of helping people become more aware of the choices they make that do or don't work for them. Through better self understanding, people are able to change internal or relational habits and achieve greater satisfaction in relationships and in life in general.

My clinical interests include working with depression, mood/anxiety disorders, relationship difficulties, life transitions, family issues, grief, loss and more. I use several psychotherapeutic modalities in order to best help the client, rather than trying to force the client to conform to a certain style of therapy. I personally know how difficult it is to seek help when you feel overwhelmed. I offer an initial free 20-minute phone consultation to determine if we would be a good therapeutic fit.

I work with individuals, couples, and families, providing support with high-functioning anxiety, mental/emotional suffering, relationship difficulties, life transitions, daily stress, and unhealthy behavior patterns.
With great courage and a sense of curiosity, you’ve already taken the hardest step towards feeling better—reaching out for help. Maybe you’ve been feeling "stuck" or overwhelmed? Perhaps you and your significant other find it difficult to communicate each other's feelings and needs. Or maybe you're trying to make sense of a life experience and don’t know where to start. I would like to reassure you, you don’t have to endure the pain or confusion alone. We, as humans, have all experienced moment(s) in life where we feel disconnected from our true selves and even our loved ones. Sometimes we just need some support along the way.

Relationships are critical for our survival in life. The quality of our relationships determine the quality of our lives. Such relationships, that are so important and yet at times seem so hard to achieve, include husband-wife, parent-child, teacher-student, and employer-employee or any other significant relationship. Our life journey can become complicated, however, we are much more in control of our lives than we realize. Taking more effective control means making better choices as you relate to others around you, as most of our struggles in life are a result of unsatisfying relationships.

They want to be seen and accepted for who they are. But as Asians living in the US, being seen and understood is often complicated by cultural misunderstandings, holding conflicting values and identities, communication differences, prejudice and racism, intergenerational trauma, and immigration issues.

My specializations include: relationship difficulties; substance abuse and addiction issues; issues surrounding death and dying (including pregnancy loss and bereavement); family of origin issues; ACA (Adult Child of Alcoholics); recovering addicts/ alcohol, PTSD & Trauma, depression, dealing with narcissistic abuse in family and or relationships.
Psychotherapy can be a life-changing experience - positive, productive treatment begins with a safe, trusting empathic client-therapist alliance. My approach is solution-focused which means I like to concentrate on client strengths. Together, we collaborate toward understanding and resolving concerns and struggles in the present moment. I also focus on origin of concerns (root causes) as well as future health and happiness. To do this, I integrate numerous modalities, as treatment depends on clients needs. Clients I work best with like a direct approach, with a twist of humor.

Relationship Issues Therapists
While need for human connection appears to be innate, the ability to form healthy, loving relationships is learned. Some evidence suggests that the ability to form a stable relationship starts to form in infancy, in a child's earliest experiences with a caregiver who reliably meets the infant's needs for food, care, warmth, protection, stimulation, and social contact. Such relationships are not destiny, but they are theorized to establish deeply ingrained patterns of relating to others. The end of a relationship, however, is often a source of great psychological anguish.

If you're looking for a Castro Valley relationship therapist, these professionals provide relationship therapy and counseling in Castro Valley.
