Kao has specialties in the following: 1) Cultural/Personal identity 2) Anxiety 3) Depression 4) Marital issues 5) Life transition 6) Spirituality.
When life hasn't turned out the way you hoped, it's difficult to know where to go or how to make change. The decision to seek help can be a difficult process.

It will be my privilege and joy to work with you in developing a life path that will bring you happiness and joy. It will be my focus to help you identify the specific issues that you're struggling with, where they come from, and how to best change unhealthy patterns of living to improve your quality of life.

I like helping people find contentment and happiness in their lives. I believe it is important to understand one's self and one's personal values and to make choices that are positive and life-affirming. I have had extensive experience working with people having experienced trauma and loss, relationship problems, and who have substance abuse problems. Creative people are also one of my specializations. My training is primarily psycho-dynamic along with cognitive-behavioral orientation. I believe mindfulness, spirituality and forgiveness are ways of helping alter patterns of behavior that can keep us stuck in our lives.

Not accepting new clients
Before I came to America I worked with soccer teams helping their players deal with anxiety, something I still do. Twice per year I return to England so therefore clients who are relatively independent and not in crisis are the best suited to working with me. Consequently, I do have a network of excellent support therapists who work with some of my clients while I am away. Many of my current clients are not sports people, they often have to cope with big work and home pressures. I try to help them locate their inner resources while maintaining a supportive stance throughout our meeting.

An ideal client is someone who has experienced trauma, large or small and feels stuck in wanting to reach their full potential. At times, the mind may not recall the triggered event, but all the memories are stored in the body. There are subconscious patterns of behavior/thought process that can go unnoticed, but the client is eager to work through it with me as their therapist and bring it to their awareness. From there, we can go on the journey of self-actualization and unblocking the trauma that is no longer servicing them.

If you're seeking help for your relationship with your partner, considering making a long-term commitment, struggling to reignite the "spark" you once had, or feeling desperate to stop the constant arguments, I would like to help you get your relationship back on the right track! Many couples wait too long to seek out professional relationship help, and suffer the pain and sadness of being out-of-sync with their partner for far too long. Unfortunately, when the commitment level has bottomed out, relationships often pass the point of no return and simply cannot be salvaged. Don't wait until it's too late!

When you felt bad as a kid, who did you talk to? Was it okay to talk about what you needed? Did you feel seen, heard, and acknowledged? The way our feelings and needs were handled or ignored as a child has a big impact on just about every element in our lives today - relationships, how we communicate, reaching goals, even our self-image. If you struggle with finding a partner, managing relationship conflict, negative self-talk, codependency, and expressing yourself authentically these can be related to early experiences in your family. It's likely that you came up with some coping strategies that worked back then but don't today.
