I pride myself on meeting my clients where they are, and working collaboratively with each of my clients and couples. We all at times go through periods when processing, whether towards change or healing, becomes necessary. I hope to make that process a bit more comfortable, so that you are not alone, and also to help you move through your journey with integrity and intention. Many of my clients report feeling it to be easier to approach difficult topics due to us having a friendly relationship as a foundation. I believe that foundation is in part created due to our efforts in seeing and validating their own internal strengths.

My approach is holistic and strengths based. I draw on a variety of approaches including EMDR, mindfulness, family systems, psychodynamic, and stress reduction techniques. I am skilled at helping people identify how their past is affecting the present and healing these memories which often results in new levels of peace and calmness. My training as a pastoral counselor has also equipped me to work with people who want to address spiritual concerns and questions. I have significant cross cultural experience from life in Kenya and Central America and I relate naturally and warmly to people of any culture or background.

I provide guidance to children and adults with learning and emotional problems. Often individuals and families come to me after trying other interventions such as psychotherapy, tutoring, or medication. As a neuropsychologist, I provide comprehensive evaluations to clarify a client's learning profile, promote greater self-awareness, and generate tailored recommendations for home, school, and work. As a psychotherapist, I help clients to value themselves, focus on the present, and resolve conflicts that block them from being successful in their school, work, and personal life.

One of the many things I enjoy about working with clients is being able to work with people across the lifespan and in various modalities. The ability to provide individual therapy to children, adolescents and adults; family therapy; and couples therapy, gives me the opportunity to work in collaboration with clients on a range of issues, needs, and goals. Ideally, clients are seeking therapy to work on something and are able to identify their hopes for therapy. In times where a loved one is seeking therapy for their child, spouse, parent, etc; I do seek to ensure that whomever participates in treatment is a willing participant.

Suffering is often the result of less than nurturing relationships and experiences. Fear can become imprisoned in the body. Family and culture can dictate how safe it is, or not safe, to express and be yourself. My own immigrant experience from Taiwan allows me deeper empathy with people navigating challenging life transitions and relating to different cultures, and even new relationships. I strive to empower individuals within the context of systemic injustice and complications. My work is to provide compassion and wisdom so that you can feel fully alive and authentic in your body, in your world and in your relationships.

Clients often come to therapy with confusion, frustration, or shame about why they are experiencing the symptoms or problems that distress them. A very important part of psychotherapy is becoming more curious about thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that initially may seem to make no sense and have no useful purpose. When we come to appreciate that even distressing or self-destructive thoughts, feelings, or behaviors have important things to tell us, we can begin to experience empathy for ourselves, make sense of our distress, and turn toward making desired changes.

Hello! As a Masters graduate from Antioch University, I completed their Military PTSD Specialization and am uniquely qualified to work with the specific needs of our vets. But trauma and PTSD do not begin or end with our veterans. I completed a year of Masters training at the Los Angeles Gay and Lesbian Center where I came face to face with many of the same issues experienced by vets, but caused by lifelong exposures to familial, societal and institutionalized homophobia. As a result, I am keenly aware of how trauma affects EVERYONE...even those who have lived a "normal" life.
