About My Clients
Therapy is an opportunity to come home to yourself and expand your capacity for connection and vitality. I will be by your side as you examine parts of yourself that are difficult to face alone. I shine a warm light on aspects that have yet to be processed, and seek to expand on sources of strength, expression, and beauty. Whatever the areas of growth you bring to the therapeutic space, my priority is to hold an empathic, non-judgmental, inclusive space in which you feel safe and deeply seen.
My Background and Approach
Listening to how my clients express themselves gives me insight into their internal world, and I enjoy bringing safety and continuity to the space we share during each session. I focus on presence and flow while simultaneously knitting the present to past context and future possibility. I value the capacity to hold multiple realities and perspectives, and to integrate process and content with compassion and empathy. My approach is integrative, collaborative, and psychodynamic, and is influenced by mindfulness, attachment needs, and emotional focusing. As the daughter of Japanese and Korean immigrants, I am keenly aware of identity, racial/ethnic, and immigration or generational issues; and as a former musician, I have extensive experience with issues around creativity and expression.
