Psychologist in San Francisco, CA

About My Clients

You're deeply caring, creative, and curious. And you feel stuck, not good enough, overwhelmed, hurting. Disconnected from the life you want. You may be in numbness and slowly suffocating in a deep hole. You may find yourself shutting down and avoiding things that are usually important to you. You may be facing a big life change that throws your sense of who you are. You could be struggling to start a family, or dealing with scary thoughts and emotional pain in pregnancy, postpartum, or beyond.

My Background and Approach

As a person who felt deeply alone in my experience, it was transformative to find my people and spaces where I could thrive and use what I learned in an enlivened relationship with myself to spread change to the rest of my life. Letting emotional pain come and go. Letting myself feel anger, sadness, grief, shame, guilt, without judging myself, putting myself down, making myself small. Daring to take chances, figuring out what I wanted by experimenting, and heading in new directions. That’s what I want for you. I am committed to providing compassionate, nonjudgmental safety for you to find real understanding and validation from me and yourself. We will help you trust yourself to be the one who chooses your meaningful and fulfilling life, not the life you "should" lead. I have special interest in working with AAPI and BIPOC people, and expertise in anxiety, depression, identity & life changes, pregnancy & postpartum, infertility, and pregnancy loss.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am passionate about supporting Asian Americans, BIPOC people, and multicultural folks, centering cultural awareness and intersectionality in therapy. If we could all feel less alone, comfortable in our own skin, liking and even loving ourselves, being more compassionate, having community with our people - what kinds of lives would we lead? The world would be less lonely and more connected if we weren’t as chained to “shoulds” from our upbringings, our society, and the people around us. I have been helping people change their lives for 17 years, and it has been my privilege. I would love to help you, too.
