What impact did the scope and/or focus of your education have on your current work as a therapist?
I believe in providing quality therapy to you and pursuing postgraduate training is a critical part of that. Currently, I am involved in a four-year contemporary psychoanalytic training program. This is an extensive level of training that allows me to address the full complexity of your human experience. I focus on deepening your self-understanding of emotional issues and conflicts that impact significant events and relationships in your life. In addition, I value diversity and am involved in continuing education about integrating multicultural perspectives. As an Asian American therapist, I am sensitive to the ways our genders, ethnicities, sexual orientations, personal and family immigration histories, religions, and body sizes can shape our inner thoughts and emotional life. Sometimes, our psychological issues have some history in inherited pain or intergenerational trauma. Together, we can work through these experiences to help you develop a more cohesive sense of self.
What would be important for someone to know about working with you?
Therapy is a long-term investment in yourself and your self-care. Even though there are no quick fixes or easy answers when it comes to healing, people can experience growth and development as they work through past traumas. Successful professionals struggling with high-functioning anxiety and depression can finally move toward clarity and fulfillment in their inner world. If you’re curious about yourself, want to grow, and want to deepen your self-awareness, let’s talk. With training in contemporary psychodynamic and cognitive behavioral therapy, I am here to gently guide you at your pace toward overcoming what ails you. We will work together to deepen your understanding of the recurring ways in which you feel stuck as well as how past painful experiences may still live on in the present. Through this process, you can begin to find relief, discover new perspectives, and come up with ways to create a more fulfilling and authentic life.
In what ways do your life philosophy and treatment philosophy overlap?
I value freedom and believe that boxes can be confining. This includes the box of a medical model diagnosis. Don’t get me wrong — a diagnosis is a helpful way to conceptualize different issues. It allows us to relate to others who might have similar challenges and it’s of course needed for insurance. At the same time, it can also be reductive and doesn’t account for the full complexity and individuality of each person. How does this shape my approach to therapy? I will want to explore the nuances of your struggles and the specific patterns you get stuck in. You can expect that our journey won’t be linear and that there is no set formula. I also value clarity and self-awareness. Clarity is developed through the process of looking deep within and gaining insight into who you are, who you want to be, and the factors that shape your life and decisions. With clarity comes new possibilities, directions, and the freedom to move through life in the ways that you truly desire.
