Though I see clients of all backgrounds, I specialize in working with women of color, addressing needs that are often times specific to one's racial identity.
Therapy is, in my opinion, something that everyone needs at some point in their life, but not everyone has access to it. Financial and cultural issues are often times the two biggest barriers between people who need therapy and people who receive therapy. My clients are a culturally diverse group, coming to therapy to address issues that they feel can be best helped and understood by a therapist of color. I also offer sliding scale fees to help with the financial barriers that too often keep those who both want and need therapy, from getting it.

My specialties are racial identity development, trauma, depression and anxiety.
When you've decided to get help, seeking a psychologist you feel comfortable with is as important as their skill and training. If I'm so honored to have you as my client, you'll find I utilize an integrated approach; a mix of gentle yet direct communication, mindfulness, cultural dynamics including family systems, psychoeducation, skill building using cognitive behavioral techniques, and of course explorative questions that help to uncover the emotional obstacles to your healing and progression in life.

I am an Asian American mindfulness practitioner who specializes in issues of acculturation, racial identity, intersectionality, stress, anxiety, perfectionism, communication, and loving self-kindness.
You've come here because you're lost, lonely, confused or in pain. Perhaps you've done everything the "right way" but that hasn't led to happiness. You want things to change, but you don't know how, or where, to start. I believe I can help you, as I've helped many others, including myself. Therapy can be a radical, healing experience, and I attend my own therapy sessions on a regular basis. In our work together, you can unpack and witness your whole self in a safe, collaborative, and empathic way.

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.

Are you struggling with sexuality-related issues? Access to sexual health is a right. This includes expression of sexuality that is safe, free of judgment and shame, and centers pleasure. As queer folx, or queer folx of color, we've been told that our sexuality is wrong in so many ways. While the experience of marginalization is traumatic, we also have so much beautiful resiliency and abundant inner resourcefulness to counter that. I believe that we all deserve the right to heal, and that we all have the tools within ourselves to do so. My job is to partner with you & support gaining access to that intuitive healer within.

Life is really good at throwing curve balls. All of us have to deal with obstacles and challenges both mild and severe as we go through life. Some of us may be dealing life transitions, maybe trying to find our sense of belonging in the world or coping with experiences that have deeply wounded us. Many of us will experience both physical and mental health consequences of these stressors. They may show up in the form of anxiety, depression, relationship breakdown and more. When we choose therapy, we choose to heal and recover from these painful consequences, as we learn to cope, manage and ultimately thrive with life's curve balls.

Life can be very overwhelming and lonely at times. When this feels too much to deal with alone, psychotherapy can be a place to have someone else see your struggles and help you bear them. I believe that through a meaningful relationship, we can work together to help you understand why you are suffering and how you can have more options for relating to yourself and others. For couples, being in a relationship itself can feel impossible. Through allowing in a third person to witness your dynamics and understand both members of the couple, it can be easier to communicate with each other.

Choosing a therapist can be intimidating, especially for people of color. We might wonder if our therapist will understand the significant role of various cultural factors in our experience. I believe each individual brings with them a set of unique experiences, values, and goals, regardless of background. Perhaps you are an individual looking for a safe space to explore your identity, including ethnicity and gender. Maybe you are already in couples therapy and want the dedicated support of your own individual sessions. Or maybe you are having difficulty communicating with family members due to generational differences.
