"I believe that troubled relationships are the root of most suffering. As a result, my work is focused on those who wish to improve their relational lives. This includes single people striving to feel secure and confident with their status in this coupled culture; single people who aspire to having a romantic relationship, but who seem to encounter difficulties in securing one; people who are already in a romantic relationship, but are facing challenges with it; or people who struggle with relationships in the working world, with friendships, or with family members. I enjoy working with couples and have training in EFT."

"Anxiety keeps you stuck, spinning, and exhausted. Anxiety keeps you from knowing who you are and what you want. If you identify as queer, you feel the added stress of experiencing marginalization and living in a heteronormative culture. You might try to cope with all of this pressure by doing too much, putting others needs before your own, and repressing your emotions. You're tired of all this stress, and it's affecting your work, relationships, and health. You're craving relief, and long for the joy, ease, and creativity you know you have the potential for."

"My work is guided by the tenet, Life is Relationship. If we can trust our stories to a therapist, that therapeutic relationship can transform us. Self-acceptance, and calm return. I listen compassionately to others to understand what is inhibiting their motivation and self-confidence. I consider lifestyle practices, relationships, use of substances; healthy and unhealthy habits, and one's sense of belonging. My clients and I together identify what helps them change. Some practices and tools I use to guide my work are: talk therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), mindfulness and stress management practices derived from Yogic philosophy and practices."

"Good therapy is life changing. It is a chance to figure things out and find ways to propel yourself, your relationship or your child into an easier, happier life. In my experience worry, resentment, fatigue, addiction, chronic sadness or conflict are not signs of weakness, but signs of having tried to handle too much for too long, alone."

"Therapy should be both practical and authentically personal. I've found that most people seek therapy to solve a specific problem, and we usually start by focusing on this. However, I've also found that most people leave therapy citing their connection with their therapist as being the most transformative and important element of their treatment. I think these are complementary goals, and I hope to combine practical problem-solving with an authentic personal connection to help you find your happiest life."

"My work is integrative, blending depth psychology with studies in attachment, neuroscience, and relational and developmental psychology. I am influenced by analytic traditions which contain a focus on trauma, and studies in contemporary neuroscience, which show how our brains process our affective (emotional) experience, particularly in the context of relationship. In addition to discussing your current and historical life experiences in our sessions, we may incorporate your dreams and somatic (body) mindfulness practices, such as exploring body sensations and their emotional counterparts."

"Therapy is an opportunity to address problems we want to change, gain insights into our concerns, and develop new ways of being. My approach to therapy is best described as integrative with a strong grounding in psychodynamic, relational, and multicultural principles. I draw on cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, and accelerated experiential dynamic psychotherapy to co-construct effective strategies for everyday life beyond the therapy room. I strive to provide clients a safe space to increase awareness, make meaning of the experience, and begin to cope and overcome life's difficulties. I provide individual and couple's therapy. I speak Mandarin and English."

"People are often hesitant to try therapy because they feel it won't work or believe they should be able to handle difficult things on their own. If you're willing to try personal trainers, babysitters, house cleaners, and other services to better your life, doesn't your emotional happiness or the happiness of your family deserve the same focus? I believe that it absolutely does."

"As a depth psychotherapist, one of the things I do is help my clients know their unknown issues. I do this by creating a safe therapeutic environment in which to explore and bring repair to the past injuries and traumas holding my clients back from experiencing life and relationships in a full and meaningful way. I like to look at my client's dreams, artwork, and daily life experiences, to bring light and insight to blockages and barriers to their full experience and enjoyment of life. Such blockages can be past trauma, incorrect embedded beliefs, and ingrained thought patterns and habits."

"Working at Stanford University and the University of California, Berkeley, helped me to develop these three recommendations for finding a therapist: 1) Find the "best fit" by meeting with (or calling) two or three therapists. Research suggests that the relationship you develop with your therapist determines therapy outcomes/benefits. Trust your judgement; pick a therapist that you like. 2) When contacting therapists, ask what experience they have working with your particular concerns. If their response does not increase your comfort, find another therapist. 3) Consider your preferred therapist demographics, such as age, ethnic-racial identity, and gender."
