I specialize in working with gay men and gay couples, particularly when it comes to sexual issues and inhibitions.
Therapy works best when it helps us get in touch with things we are unaware of and which cause us discomfort. We are all motivated to avoid painful thoughts, feelings, and memories. That lack of awareness can sometimes cause pain or worry, or influence the way we behave and create difficulties in our personal and professional lives. Together we will discover and process these painful thoughts and feelings in a safe and supportive environment. This process can take a lot of work but can be transformative, often leading to a greater sense of personal choice and freedom.

I specialize in lesbian, gay, bisexual, queer, transgender, and nonbinary individuals.
Psychoanalytic therapy is a mode of intensive listening that provides you with a protected space to say anything that comes to mind; it is a chance to explore thoughts and feelings that you previously have not been able to articulate to yourself and to others. Psychoanalysis is a unique, extraordinary relationship that facilitates the emergence of novel and surprising ways of seeing and thinking. Inhibitions and destructive conflicts in areas of creative pursuit, career, relationships, and sex dissipate, leading to new possibilities and experiences, and the alleviation of anxiety and suffering.

Do you want to change how you feel, your habits, or how you interact with others? You deserve a therapist who will listen with empathy and offer insight without judgment, someone who will help you figure out what is holding you back and how to overcome it. This may require examining your perceptions, your interactions, and even your history. Evidence-based techniques and coping mechanisms may also be helpful.

It is often difficult to identify why we are unhappy. It can feel like something has disconnected us from the sense of spontaneous creativity and joy which defines a good life. Instead of freedom and self-determination, we feel trapped and pressured by society's demands, unsatisfying relationships, or feelings that we don't know how to address. I would work with you in therapy to clarify what you're feeling and how you can achieve your goals, so that you can reconnect with your own place of authenticity, power, and creative engagement. I am also fully trained in clinical hypnosis, and can discuss this option based on your interest.

I believe that mental health issues arise when we are faced with overwhelming emotions in isolation. Without the necessary support, emotions get so big and daunting that we defend ourselves against them, leading to numbness, anxiety, and depression. My goal is to invite intense emotions into the room so that we can learn to regulate them together and they can be reincorporated into the psyche, leading to a fuller and healthier life.

I’m passionate about supporting people along their healing journeys and paths of self-discovery. I don’t believe we seek out therapy because we are “flawed” or because we need to be “fixed.” Instead, I view therapy as a powerful act of self-care when navigating challenging systems, -isms, circumstances and relationships. My own lived experience as a neurodivergent Korean adoptee drives my commitment to practicing from a place that holds space for - and celebrates- each person’s multiple and intersecting identities.

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.

If you have ever struggled to make changes in your life due to past adversities, current stressors, or self imposed expectations, you're not alone. You may be struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, or other barriers that make it difficult to relate to others or feel that you have a space of relative safety. In my clinical experience, this is precisely when therapy can be a vital avenue for self discovery, reflection, and change.
