It can be difficult to feel secure and make connections with others while feeling bogged down from past experiences and relationships. I work together with my clients, you are the experts in their life, you feel what they feel and it's not for me to invalidate that. Instead I try to hear your story, and work with you on changing your narrative to be the story that you want to have. I believe that we all have this need to connect and we are affected by our past experiences that impact how we react to things, but that we can gain insights on how to make changes for ourselves.

I believe in our ability to choose one thought over another to reduce stress and improve overall mental wellness. My goal is to provide compassionate and professional care to reduce stress and improve quality of life. Although I work with both men and women, I specialize in women's mental health and perinatal psychiatry. Through therapy and psychopharmacology, I manage mood and anxiety symptoms occurring around menses, pregnancy, infertility/fertility, and menopause.

I would love to hear your stories — and how you're feeling today. Our session will begin with your story. We will listen together without criticism or judgment. Over time, as we continue, you'll gain a new perspective and awareness, accompanied by fresh ideas and behaviors, and many practical tools. As we understand and explore the aspects of your life, the therapy room will become a safe space to rehearse your real life. You'll find viable solutions for the day-to-day issues you face outside of our session room.

I am currently providing online therapy sessions during the COVID-19 public health crisis.

Seeking therapy can be an intimidating and overwhelming process. From acknowledging that you would like more support to searching for the right therapist for you, it takes time, effort, and courage to face your challenges and risk vulnerability. That is why I aim to create a warm, welcoming, and non-judgmental space where you experience trust, safety, and comfort to bring your authentic self into the room. To be vulnerable and open as your true self without fear of judgment is to move towards freedom and expansion.

I especially enjoy working with BIPOC individuals, couples, and families to explore issues of race, sex, gender, culture, and other identity that may be impacting your relationships, work, or overall wellbeing. As a family and couple therapist, I believe problems reside between people and not within them. We will approach your challenges from a relational and systems perspective, putting into consideration the context, environments, and systems we all reside in. You are the center of your story and expert on your life. We will build upon and utilize your innate skills and strengths to better understand and work through your challenges.

On the outside, you have it totally “together.” To others, you have a kick ass job, friendships galore, solid romantic relationships…many would say that you are crushing this thing called life. On the inside, it’s a bit of a different story. Although you have a lot of your stuff together (you are a badass, after all), there are still things that are missing or are not feeling quite right. You notice that you are going through your days mostly on autopilot and lay in bed at night wondering how you got here...feeling disconnected, anxious, and away from your true passions and dreams.

I get it. Reaching out for support can be so hard and for women, there’s conditioning to believe that you need to “hold it together” for everyone around you. You are messaged to believe that you can’t have big dreams, speak your mind, stand up for yourself, have needs, or prioritize yourself.

All of that is SO real and therapy is a powerful way to more fully understand your story and move toward your goals with the support of a professional to journey alongside you.

I welcome your interest and courage to search for a psychotherapist to work on the challenges you have in your daily life. I look forward to work together to help you explore, confront and transform the difficulties you have.

I am a licensed psychotherapist offering secure video sessions for the duration of the COVID-19 crisis. Besides English, I provide therapy in Mandarin, Cantonese and Japanese.

My interest in mental health stemmed from my curiosity of my own experiences and took off after I came to United States for my Master degree in Social Work. After graduation, I went on pursuing further psychoanalytic training at W.A White Institute, as I am interested in understanding myself as well as forming a deeper connection with people. I believe the therapeutic relationship could be a useful learning experience for us to better navigate our daily life by developing a healthy and meaningful relationship to ourselves and other people.

I know personally the courage it takes, along with research and planning, to take the steps to seek out therapy/counseling/healing. Whatever weight you are carrying on your back, whatever is sitting deep in your heart, or whatever obstacles are blocking your way, in this space, we will explore your inner most self in a deep, profound way, explore all nuances of your feelings to another, and you will receive nonjudgmental acceptance. The human psyche and interpersonal relationships are profoundly complex for any one person to try to navigate alone. But Resilience has brought you this far, and within you, you have what Irvin Yalom calls “an inbuilt propensity toward self-realization.” My hope is to support you through this process in developing a life full of meaning.
