I specialize in the following:

Work Stress: Dealing with difficult people, incidents that rub salt into unhealed wounds, resentments, etc.

Motivation: Knowing what to do but can't get yourself to do it.

Racial/Cultural: Ethnic identity, feeling invalidated by society.

Other: Anxiety, Depression, Grief, Relational Issues, Self-Esteem, Body Image, Social Anxiety, Parenting Issues


I use a client-centered (and data-centric - I often ask clients to fill out an optional survey). Modalities I like include:

  • Internal Family Systems

  • Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT)

  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

  • Psychodynamic / Relational / Existential

  • Positive Discipline (for kids)

I've successfully worked with with the US military, Asian and Western expats living in Tokyo and Shanghai, immigrant families in the US, high school drop-outs, Ivy League graduates, Starbucks baristas, struggling PhD students, and many more.
