I’m a queer Chinese-American woman, and grew up in a multigenerational household with first-generation immigrant parents and relatives, speaking Mandarin and English, which allowed me to understand the challenges of navigating various cultural worlds. I was diagnosed with Lupus at the age of 10, a chronic illness that has affected me to varying degrees throughout my life, which has given me a sense of humility and deep gratitude about my mental, emotional, and physical capabilities. My personal and educational experiences have shaped my values as a trauma-informed, anti-oppression, and social justice-oriented clinician.

I only provide telehealth services. I specialize in rehabilitation psychology, pain psychology, and supporting people in their recovery after injury and/or with chronic medical conditions. Often people work with me to address experiences of trauma, grief, and loss related to injuries and health conditions. Evidence-based treatments include the use of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). I typically work in a brief-treatment model, with treatment lasting 2 to 12 appointments. This will depend on your needs and goals. We will make a treatment plan together during your first appointment.

My work with adolescents and adults typically focuses on issues of stress management, coping skills, depression, anxiety, eating and sleeping issues, mind-body health and wellness coaching, chronic health conditions, addictive behaviors, unresolved grief, trauma, relationship struggles, and difficult life changes. I use an integrative, mind-body skills-based approach to collaboratively examine the link between a client's physical, cognitive, and emotional symptoms. We then develop an action plan that incorporates their strengths, life circumstances, and desired changes to work toward improved health, wellness, and quality of life.

I work primarily with adults in individual weekly therapy and with couples. In individual therapy I work in a relational psychodynamic modality that explores the patterns of relationships in your life and the root issues behind your symptoms. In my work with couples I see the couple as the client with no mental health diagnosis given to any one person in the partnership. My aim in this work is to help couples grow in their partnership while simultaneously reducing the conflict and misunderstandings they may be experiencing in their relationship.

I am here to be your guide so you can embody a greater sense of connection, confidence, and ease within yourself and your relationships. I help those struggling to navigate life transitions, relationships and codependency issues, challenged by anxiety, processing grief/loss, and dealing with the impacts of trauma. We are all trying to find solutions to our problems, however sometimes those solutions have just created more problems. Therapy is great tool to help us understand those patterns, try a different approach, and rewire ourselves for sustained growth and change.

Do you ever feel that you may be getting in the way of yourself in your efforts to live a rich and fulfilling life? Maybe you feel unmotivated or disconnected from a sense of joy. Often, this results from a lack of clarity about what matters most to you or even well-intentioned efforts to escape feelings of pain and suffering. I believe that a rich, meaning-filled life includes both incredible highs and inevitable lows. Through the lens of that belief, I seek to help people mindfully, authentically, and compassionately embrace the range of ups and downs that they experience in their lives. Through this, true healing can occur.

Let’s face it, modern life is stressful. With constant demands on your time and attention, it’s not surprising that you’ve neglected what used to be your north star – your relationship. This may leave you feeling disconnected from your partner & trapped in a cycle of go-nowhere fights. You probably miss the spark that made you excited to see each other at the end of the day. You long for the days when the two of you were in love. I am on a mission to create a better world by helping couples build stronger relationships. People in healthy relationships feel better, get more done & contribute to positive change in the world.

“Just because no one else can heal or do your inner work for you doesn’t mean you need to do it alone.” - Lisa Olivera. Change isn’t easy—I don’t need to tell you that. You’ve been trying to do this on your own for a while now. You may feel stuck, wondering how you can get out of your self-defeating patterns, move forward from trauma or grief, or gain more self-confidence to reach your goals. If you face systemic oppression due to being BIPOC, LGBTQ, an immigrant, or disabled, you have probably faced even more obstacles to your healing, including in the therapy room. I’m here to help with culturally informed, compassionate care.

For therapy to be effective, it needs to be real, honest, compassionate, and focused on the client's goals. That is what you will find with me. Over the years, I have found a common thread among my clients: they long to feel safe, loved, and accepted by those around them. When those feelings are not met, life can seem overwhelming and depressing. Finding connections, learning skills, overcoming traumas, dealing with grief, helping your marriage thrive -- these can be great stepping stones in living life to the fullest. Together, we can find ways to achieve this goal.
