In my experience, CBT and DBT skills work well to help you manage your mood, engage with others in healthy ways, and react to crises more effectively.
Engaging in therapy should be done with someone you trust. If you are experiencing depression, anxiety, or recovering from trauma, or if you are looking for LBGTQIA+ affirming therapy (parents of questioning children are welcome!), reach out to me to discuss potential forms of treatment. If you don't see your concerns on the list of specialties, feel free to call me and ask about it!

Accepting Telehealth clients only- We are living through difficult times and many of us are becoming aware of the things in our lives that aren’t working for us any longer. Some of us may be impacted by old wounds that never had the chance to fully heal; some of us are realizing we aren’t living our lives in a way that aligns with how we want to live. We believe that every person has the capacity to heal and live a life of meaning and positive well-being but that often, many of us do not have the support or skills that we need to make changes in our lives.

As a seasoned clinician, I bring an eclectic blend of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness, NLP, and the understanding that what we focus on creates our experience.
Are you focused on what lights you up? Or are you feeling stuck, anxious, unsure which direction you want to go? As we go through life, we acquire habits of thought and behavior that can leave us feeling limited, traumatized, inadequate, disconnected from our true selves. My belief is that you are innately wired for joy, delight, playfulness, and creativity. In therapy, I will assist you in discovering new ways of experiencing yourself and your circumstances to allow you to reconnect with your innate ease of being.

I work with adolescents and adults who would like to change difficult behaviors and mindsets; people looking to explore different aspects of the self or gain access to more internal balance, connection, and contentment. You may be working through situational hurdles or life transitions; dealing with the impacts of oppression and societal conditioning; feeling unsafe in the world, disconnected from others and your own experience. Depending on your personal needs and goals, we might work together briefly or long term; focusing on solutions and paths forward, and/or unraveling some of the roots of your issues.

Trauma leaves us feeling shattered, broken and disconnected, adding parenting to the mix can make it that much harder. You may be fed up with being stressed or triggered all the time, feeling anxious, lost, hopeless, maybe even shame for what happened to you and guilty that you can’t always be the parent you'd hoped. You might not even remember a time things didn’t feel this way. But one thing is for sure: you’re ready for some relief. You’re ready to make sense of your experiences. You’re ready to re-gain control. Most of all, you’re ready to feel capable and empowered to be the parent your children need.

In life, unexpected things happen. Challenges and bumps in the road are all part of it. Sometimes with the the help of another we can make room for and navigate through planned or unexpected changes. With the help of a trained professional, life challenges can become easier to deal with. During the therapeutic process, I will work with the tools you already have in order to tackle life's problems. I will listen empathetically and help you uncover those strengths you thought you lost through your life challenges, often using humor and warmth to work through your problems.

I believe that you can experience healing and growth. I believe that everyone has experienced setbacks, hardships, and traumas in life that make it harder to love well and fulfill your personal goals. I believe that healthy, honest, vulnerable relationships are foundational to growth and healing. I believe that it is ultimately up to you to decide how to move forward and choose the path towards improvement. I believe that through honest evaluation and the hard work of taking ownership of your life along with improved relationships you can become empowered to address those issues and become who you are meant to be.

Are you traveling full speed on a path that no longer has a meaningful destination? Is it hard to identify needs or set boundaries because you've learned it's safer not to take up space? Or maybe you've built a wall around your true self because you didn't fit the mold you were given? Firstly, know that these are all indicators that you're resilient and adaptable. You may have faced significant challenges or traumas and found a way to move forward even with unmet needs.This is a skill of survival; however, it's not adequate when navigating the full complexity of life. For that, you will also need compassion, connection, and purpose.

Free yourself from the anxiety trap! Anxiety, panic, worry and stress can hold people back from performing in life. It can hold people back in school, from getting the job they want, getting promoted, and flourishing in relationships. Trying to escape anxiety can lead people to doing things they wouldn't normally do. When people are frozen with fear they are not living life fully as their authentic selves. Working with a therapist can break you free from anxiety. I've helped so many people work through these feelings to go on to be more successful in their lives.

As an Asian American therapist, I have the unique perspective that comes with the BIPOC community and I take pride in creating a safe and judgement free environment. My "ideal" client would be someone who is willing to get out of their comfort zone to gain the life they want to enjoy and love. A client who is open, honest, and willing to ask for help. I get excited when clients talk to me about the changes they want to make in their life and It excites me to see the possibility of change! Come as you are and we will navigate the rest together.

You try your best to focus at work and at home, but you can’t concentrate. As soon as you let your guard down, even for a moment, the familiar sense of panic gets it's grip on you. It clouds your mind with fear and makes even the simplest tasks impossible. You’ve experienced some bad situations, but you thought you were over it now. Unfortunately, the painful past isn’t done with you. There’s a cold knot in the pit of your belly that won't go away. Horrible memories play on repeat in your mind. Now it’s affecting every aspect of your life. It’s hard to feel close to anyone. You want to make a change, but it feels so hopeless.

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) Therapists

How does cognitive behavioral therapy work?

Cognitive behavioral therapy works by exploring how your thoughts affect your emotions and experiences. CBT helps you identify distortions in your thinking. For example, you may tend to jump to the worst case scenario (catastrophizing) or think in extremes (all-or-nothing thinking). A therapist can teach you how to push back against those thoughts to ultimately change your feelings and behavior for the better. They can also provide coping skills to better deal with stressors and challenges.

When do I know to seek treatment with cognitive behavioral therapy?

It’s reasonable to consider cognitive behavioral therapy if you struggle to manage difficult emotions or behaviors to such an extent that you are not getting the most out of life on a day-to-day basis. If you want a shorter term, concrete, skills-based approach, CBT is a great option. (By contrast, other types of therapy may devote more time to exploring your past and its effects.) The decision to seek CBT also depends on the condition you’re treating; CBT is an effective treatment for anxiety, depression, trauma, and many other disorders.

How can I find a cognitive behavioral therapist for someone else?

To find a cognitive behavioral therapist for someone else, you may want to begin by discussing the person’s problem, researching cognitive behavioral therapy, and assessing whether the approach is the right fit. You could then reach out to a few cognitive behavioral therapists in this directory, explain the scenario, have a consultation with those available, and determine who could be a good match.

Why is CBT such a popular form of therapy?

CBT has become a popular form of therapy because it is effective and accessible. Robust research has demonstrated that CBT is an effective treatment for many mental health conditions. And CBT can be learned in relatively few sessions, which means that many people can engage in the process, afford it, and see results quickly. It involves learning concrete skills such as disputing unhelpful thoughts; these skills can also be taught and spread widely.
