Your story matters. As an Asian American, it might not always feel like your story matters. Perhaps the story of the intergenerational conflict between you and your parents just feels like a cliché narrative or running joke among you and your other Asian American friends. Perhaps racial events this past year and the targeted attacks towards Asians have revealed a range of emotions you never even knew you had about your racial identity. Perhaps you haven't had a space to process these feelings because growing up & living in this system, no one ever asked you how YOU felt or what YOU wanted, so you learned to not focus on your needs.

Therapy offers valuable support for individuals coping with ailments that plague our bodies and our minds. I believe that creating healthy boundaries in our interpersonal relationships is key to living a meaningful and healthy life. I work with issues such as anxiety, depression, racial identity, relationship issues, and post-traumatic stress disorder. I have an academic concentration in trauma studies, and my work also extends to clients dealing with grief and loss.

My approach to mental health and wellness centers on compassionate collaboration and direct truth-telling. As a therapist who values empathy, justice, and racial equity and believes in owning the impact of our words and actions rather than our intentions, much of our work will challenge traditional ways of existing and relating. Are you a multicultural couple wanting to set boundaries, discuss power and privilege, and improve communication; a Black woman professional discouraged by singleness; a young adult desiring to develop your racial identity? I can join you on the path towards greater understanding and acceptance.

Racial identity, the mixed race experience and societal oppression (of race, gender, sexuality, income, etc) are a few areas of my expertise when working with adolescents and their parents.
Do you argue with your teen? Lecture, yell, or worry too much? Are you not sure how to get through to your teen? I help parents understand their teens. It is possible to have a different, positive relationship with your teen. You can become stronger & better equipped to take care of your teen. You can discover your unique teen and feel proud of who they can become. I can't make parenting easy, but I can make you feel more at ease parenting. My only goal is to be an educated guide. My stance with my clients is a combination of finding strengths and exploring how our past may shows up in our current behavior.

My clients start therapy seeking a deeper understanding of themselves, their relationships and the world. They may want to explore something painful in a safe space on their own terms and work on themes such as depression, anxiety, grief & loss, sexuality & racial identity exploration, trauma, and life transitions. They seek a healing journey where radical acceptance of themselves uncovers inner truths that may hard to experience without support and guidance. They may want a body-oriented approach where befriending uncomfortable feelings and sensations helps access the traumas and emotional wounds stored in the body.

I treat a variety of concerns related to depression, anxiety, cultural and racial identity, adjustment difficulties, relationship issues, and maladaptive coping to name a few.
I firmly believe that relationships are the core of the human experience. We are inherently social and cannot function optimally in silos. I utilize the clinical relationship to provide support, understanding, practice, and modeling to help clients improve the relationships with others as well as their own personal relationship with self. Psychodynamically oriented, I like to offer insight into that which precipitates and maintains current difficulties while utilizing Cognitive-Behavior Therapy (CBT) techniques to foster problem-solving and coping.

As a psychologist, I have evidence-based expertise in the treatment of depression, anxiety, gender/racial identity development, and race-based trauma.
Are you a person trying to explore your gender, race, or sexuality? Do you struggle to communicate your needs, set boundaries, and be assertive? When I think about transforming and changing one's life, I always reflect on Audre Lorde's powerful words. "What are the words you do not yet have? What are the tyrannies you swallow day by day and attempt to make your own, until you will sicken and die of them, still in silence?...Next time, ask: What's the worst that will happen? Then push yourself a little further than you dare. " I challenge you to speak your truth, understand yourself, and be authentic while maintaining boundaries.

After practicing psychotherapy for seventeen years at UCLA and Cornell University, I've come to realize that as human beings, we make the most change when we're able to harness the power of positive thinking and doing. A positive mind leads to resilience, self-confidence, and sustained happiness. Contrary to what you may believe, ordinary people like you and me can learn positive psychology. It isn't as hard as you think because we're born with the ability to heal ourselves and succeed in life. It's something to experience and discover for yourself. Happiness IS possible.

Throughout our lives, we encounter a number of spaces where we feel our voices silenced. Continual experiences of being quieted can lead us to internalize messages that we don’t have the permission to speak – questioning whether or not to start therapy is no exception to this. As a queer, Korean-Japanese American, there have been countless times when I’ve been told that I’m not man enough, that I’m unfit for love, and that I don’t have a story to be heard. Much of my work is informed by the idea that, in order for us to heal, we must first feel like our perspective matters and that our struggles are deserving of support.

When we understand the relationship between our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, we can create long-lasting change. Therapy is an opportunity to learn about ourselves, begin the healing process, and most importantly, get some relief. I have spent many years working in treatment programs, focusing on mental health and addiction. While substance abuse therapy is centered on building coping skills and learning relapse prevention strategies, I work with clients to understand the relationship they had with substances.

As a Black woman who is often seen as "having it all together," it may be challenging to admit that you are having a difficult time. You may automatically say that you are "good" or "well" when people ask how you are doing but know deep down that this is a mask of how you are really feeling. Recognizing and admitting to yourself about the mask is the first courageous step to getting support. Even though many of us have been told to not let our guard down by showing others that we do not have it all together or that only "crazy" people who do not look like us go for therapy (not true!), you know what you need for yourself.

Reaching out for help is one of the most humbling experiences we can go through in life. In a world that is constantly pushing narratives on us based on race, gender, sexuality and/or dominant cultural beliefs, it is life-affirming to engage preferred narratives that support and empower our own values. In difficult times it is easy to feel misunderstood or lost, longing to reconnect with our own resources. My work aims for those reconnections.
