My Approach to Helping
You want to know yourself better. You want to figure out what all this overthinking and worrying is really about. Stress and anxiety might feel overwhelming, but there's a part of you that wants to live differently. Maybe you’re hard on yourself and wonder if you’re doing something wrong. Maybe you struggle to worry less in relationships because you’ve been hurt before. Maybe you just have a sense that something isn’t right. You don’t have to be held back by these things.
Collaboratively, we will work towards a deeper understanding of the recurring ways in which you feel stuck, as well as how past painful experiences may still live on in the present. You can bring your struggles and wounds, parts of yourself that you embrace and parts that you may not be so proud of. Through this process, you can begin to find relief, discover new perspectives, and we can come up with ways to create a more fulfilling and authentic life. With training in contemporary insight-oriented and cognitive-behavioral therapies, I am here to gently guide you, at your pace, to overcome what ails you. As an Asian American, I hold a multicultural perspective. I am sensitive to the ways that gender, culture, spirituality, personal and familial immigration history can shape our internal world.
