I am a licensed psychologist with extensive experience in helping and supporting individuals and families working through mental health and life transition issues. Many people I had worked with were struggling with stress related to work/career, relationships, complex family dynamics and personality issues. I am trained in using an integrative approach with an emphasis on psychodynamic lens to guide you move beyond the surface level and explore deeper into your internal world.
I work collaboratively with my clients to create a safe space for deeper self-exploration. While the presenting issues can be heavy, we will work together to find the "playfulness" in the therapeutic process. I want to support and challenge you to increase insight to apply in your life.
Therapy can be a powerful experience to find the capacity to live and love, as well as meaningful changes in life. Whether you are new to treatment or looking for a new therapist, I am here to support your journey. I am looking forward to exploring with you about how I can help you. Please feel free to reach out for any questions.

Worked with Yu-kang in the past at A.P.I.C.H.A. where we'd with a challenging population. I am very proud of his progression and watched admirably his work as a psychologist at Hamilton House and sharing Asian mental health concerns on pod-cast talks.
