About My Clients

This is your time! Your time to share your story and say out loud what you are feeling inside. Therapy is not a place to hold back or hide your true self. Be authentic with your partner and yourself and let's move forward together. I specialize in working with couples, partners, and individuals experiencing relational/communication issues, couples who are curious or beginning consensual non-monogamous relationships, and cultural ruptures within mixed couples.

My Background and Approach

Due to my own adversity as a Biracial Asian-American Queer Cis Male, finding my own identity has taken much of my life and I am still discovering things about myself. Helping you find your identity in and out of your relationships is a passion of mine. I recognize identity as intersectional, complex, and fluid and something to be celebrated. In my work, I help individuals navigate systemic oppression and heal from identity-based trauma. I also encourage individuals to explore and challenge their own biases and privilege and how it affects the way they see the world. In my work, I draw from an eclectic mix of approaches including, but not limited to: Gottman Couples Therapy, which provides a multifaceted approach to care while also utilizing attachment/strength-based, solution-focused practices. In other words, I have a whole mental health toolbox of resources to choose from that goes hand in hand with how I work.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

For us to grow, we must challenge our preconceived notions of self and experiences, for those are what shape our truths. We are not alone, even when it feels as if we are. We are connected to the thousands of lives that have touched ours and have had a hand in creating us. It is my privilege and honor to be able to assist you in exploring the connections that bind us all to the suffering and love we experience. I approach my work through a systemic lens, in other words, I see the world as a huge ball of yarn. Those strings are our connectedness, the relationships we hold that connect us to our culture, our family, our history, and our future.
