My Approach to Therapy:

Therapy is an opportunity to come home to yourself and expand your capacity for connection and vitality. My role is to be by your side as you examine parts of yourself that are difficult to face alone. I shine a warm light on experiences, emotions, and beliefs that have yet to be processed, and seek to expand upon sources of strength, expression, connection, 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.

I offer couples therapy and individual therapy. 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 issues; and as a former musician, I have extensive experience with issues around creativity and expression.
