मैंने शिकागो स्कूल ऑफ प्रोफेशनल साइकोलॉजी से डॉक्टरेट ऑफ साइकोलॉजी और मास्टर ऑफ आर्ट्स प्राप्त किया। मैंने न केवल निजी प्रैक्टिस सेटिंग में काम करके, बल्कि आवासीय सेटिंग में भी काम करके अपना चिकित्सीय अनुभव प्राप्त किया है।


यह मेरा लक्ष्य है कि मेरे कार्यालय में कदम रखने वाले प्रत्येक व्यक्ति को लगता है  आरामदायक और स्वीकृत।  मैं प्रत्येक व्यक्ति की संस्कृति, लिंग, जाति और यौन पहचान का सम्मान करता हूं।  मैं अपने क्षेत्र के प्रति जुनूनी हूं और मेरा मानना है कि मेरे कार्यालय में आने वाला प्रत्येक व्यक्ति अद्वितीय है।  मैं एक एकीकृत दृष्टिकोण का उपयोग करता हूं जिसमें संज्ञानात्मक व्यवहार चिकित्सा, द्वंद्वात्मक व्यवहार चिकित्सा और मनोगतिक तकनीक शामिल हैं।  मैं एक उपचार योजना तैयार करने के लिए प्रत्येक ग्राहक के साथ काम करता हूं जो उसकी व्यक्तिगत जरूरतों और लक्ष्यों को पूरा करता है।  मुझे बच्चों, किशोरों और वयस्कों के साथ काम करने में मज़ा आता है, और मैं व्यक्तिगत, पारिवारिक और साथ ही संबंध चिकित्सा प्रदान करता हूँ।

मेरे पास मनोदशा संबंधी विकारों, व्यक्तित्व विकारों, चिंता, मादक द्रव्यों के सेवन और क्रोध के उपचार में व्यापक अनुभव और प्रशिक्षण है। इसके अलावा, मैं चिंता, अवसाद, तनाव और रिश्ते की कठिनाइयों सहित पुराने दर्द से जुड़े मनोवैज्ञानिक संघर्षों का इलाज करने में विशेषज्ञ हूं।  मैं प्रसवोत्तर अवसाद और बांझपन के इलाज में भी विशेषज्ञ हूं।  

मैं अपने ग्राहकों से प्रतिक्रिया का स्वागत करता हूं।  जब एक ग्राहक को लगता है कि एक निश्चित तकनीक काम नहीं कर रही है, तो मैं उसे मुझे बताने के लिए प्रोत्साहित करता हूं ताकि हम एक और तकनीक खोजने के लिए मिलकर काम कर सकें जो बेहतर काम कर सके।  मुझे लगता है कि थेरेपी निश्चित रूप से एक टीम प्रयास है।

Finding balance in this unpredictable world can sometimes seem unachievable. Together, we can find a balance that best fits you. My goal for therapy is teaching you the skills needed to find your balance so you can flourish in your daily life. Whatever your journey has been, I will help you implement knowledge and tools to overcome barriers from the past, present, and future. I am here to listen from a neutral perspective with expertise in psychological health and the influence it can have on the rest of our biological system. My clinical skills reflect all ages across the lifespan as I have worked with children, adolescents, adults, and older adults. With this, I am flexible in aiding in treatment among various cohorts and in a multitude of settings. 


Through my training in health service psychology at Kansas City University, I was able to work closely with medical students in training to become knowledgeable in the process of collaborative care. I am willing to work with you and any of your providers to ensure advocacy for your comprehensive wellbeing. You will not feel alone or unheard throughout our treatment together as I will work collaboratively with you to ensure the best care.


 The evidence-based treatments I commonly use in practice include cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), motivational interviewing (MI), solution-focused therapy (SFT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), and cognitive processing therapy (CPT).  I am well versed in neurocognitive deficit interventions, mood disturbances, substance use interventions, and trauma processing. Additionally, I have done extensive research in women’s health issues including PMDD, postpartum depression and anxiety, and other menstrual conditions.

I believe that the therapeutic relationship is paramount in fostering change. It is through an open, nonjudgmental, and safe environment that clients can explore and grow into their most authentic selves and lead more fulfilling lives. My approach emphasizes how our past and present experiences shape how we relate to others and the world around us. I work with children, adolescents, and adults, and utilize an integrative and collaborative approach that incorporates aspects of Psychodynamic Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Feminist, Relational, and Strengths-Based approaches.

I am an LGBTQ+ affirming and sex positive therapist who welcomes clients who are part of the kink and poly/consensual non-monogamy communities. I received a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of Central Florida and a Doctorate degree in Clinical Psychology from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology.

I have experience in multiple settings including substance abuse facilities, community mental health centers, and therapeutic day schools working with concerns such as anxiety, depression, substance use, trauma, developmental disorders, impulse control, and relationship struggles.

In life, people look for answers and I believe the answers lie within each of us. I strive to help individuals make their thoughts and goals clearer so that individuals can find answers during times of heavy clouds and dark skies. Through processing, learning effective tools, and techniques to manage high stress and anxiety, I work with my clients to get them to a more comprehensive sense of self. That self they have always dreamed of being and that self they, unconsciously, already are. In doing so, processing the past and the present to develop how my clients want their future to look will be a journey of healing and finding balance. 


I work from an integrative approach primarily utilizing Psychoanalytic/Psychodynamic interventions with Cognitive Behavioral and Dialectical Behavioral theories. I am extensively trained in Psychoanalytic/Psychodynamic and Dialectical Behavioral therapies. I strive to help individuals identify patterns in current relationships and behaviors that stem from past experiences, both from past attachment, as well as environmentally learned. I take a collaborative approach through processing, learning effective tools, and applying techniques to manage high stress and anxiety. I have experience working with adults struggling with depression, anxiety, mood difficulties, trauma-related concerns, self-esteem, interpersonal relationships, phase of life adjustments, personality disorders, identity and LGBTQIA+ related concerns.  


I earned my doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology from Adler University in Chicago, IL and my master’s degree in Clinical Psychology from the Illinois School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University, Chicago, IL. I have worked in private practices, intensive outpatient programs and college counseling settings as I enjoy working with young adults, middle-aged adults, individually, couples and in group therapy.

सामाजिक न्याय और सामुदायिक जुड़ाव पर जोर देने के कारण एडलर विश्वविद्यालय मेरे लिए महत्वपूर्ण था। शिकागो समुदाय का हिस्सा होने से मेरी आंखें खुल गई हैं क्योंकि मैं मूल रूप से एक छोटे से शहर से हूं। एक बड़े तालाब में एक छोटी मछली होने के कारण मुझे ऐसे अवसर और अनुभव मिले हैं जो मुझे लगता है कि एक परामर्शदाता के रूप में बढ़ने में मेरी मदद की है।  


मैंने शिकागो पब्लिक स्कूल, किशोर आवासीय केंद्रों और संकट केंद्रों जैसे आवासीय सेटिंग्स में काम करने का चिकित्सीय अनुभव प्राप्त किया है। मेरे जुनून में विविधता को बढ़ावा देते हुए बच्चों, किशोरों और युवा वयस्कों के साथ काम करना शामिल है। मैं व्यक्तिगत, समूह और पारिवारिक चिकित्सा प्रदान करता हूं। मेरे अनुभव में अवसाद, चिंता, आचरण विकार, विपक्षी अवज्ञा विकार, ध्यान की कमी अति सक्रियता विकार (एडीएचडी), समायोजन विकार और क्रोध सहित कई मानसिक स्वास्थ्य चिंताओं का इलाज करना शामिल है।


मेरा दृष्टिकोण क्लाइंट-केंद्रित चिकित्सा, संज्ञानात्मक व्यवहार चिकित्सा, द्वंद्वात्मक व्यवहार चिकित्सा, और एडलरियन चिकित्सा सहित साक्ष्य-आधारित प्रथाओं के संयोजन को एकीकृत करता है। मेरी विशेषता के क्षेत्र में नाटक चिकित्सा का उपयोग शामिल है। प्ले थेरेपी मनोचिकित्सात्मक दृष्टिकोण है जिसका उपयोग मुख्य रूप से व्यक्तियों को नाटक के माध्यम से अपनी भावनाओं और विचारों को स्वतंत्र रूप से व्यक्त करने में मदद करने के लिए किया जाता है। चिकित्सीय नाटक मेरे लिए अकादमिक, व्यवहारिक, सामाजिक या भावनात्मक मुद्दों वाले व्यक्तियों की मदद करने का एक तरीका है जो संचार को अलग तरह से व्यक्त करते हैं। मौखिक संचार हम सभी के लिए नहीं है और डराने वाला हो सकता है। मैं सक्रिय या मजेदार कुछ करते हुए किसी को जानना पसंद करता हूं।


मेरा जुनून स्वतंत्रता को बढ़ावा देने के लिए अपनी ताकत का उपयोग करके अपने ग्राहकों को उनकी पूरी क्षमता तक पहुंचने में मदद करना है। चिकित्सा की मेरी शैली में मेरे ग्राहकों से मिलना शामिल है जहां वे वर्तमान में हैं।  मेरा लक्ष्य एक अनूठा और प्रामाणिक परामर्श अनुभव प्रदान करना है जहां कोई खुद को स्वीकार किए जाने के लिए स्वीकार कर सकता है। मैं चिकित्सीय संबंधों में वृद्धि को सुविधाजनक बनाने के लिए विश्वास विकसित करने में मदद करने के लिए एक सुरक्षित और सहयोगी स्थान प्रदान करना चाहता हूं।

I believe we’re naturally good and unfortunately taught to feel shame, worthlessness, inadequacy, and the ideas of “bad” and “wrong”. I’m dedicated to providing a non-judgmental environment to support clients, explore their situations, and achieve their goals. I strive to hear and understand your feelings, past and current experiences, as well as to provide information and new coping strategies to help you deal with your concerns, difficulties, and struggles. We will sort out what’s going on in your life and sort it out together.


I received my Master’ degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Adler University. I have received training  in CBT, Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, and personality disorders treatment and management. It is my goal to keep enlarging my toolbox in order to provide more efficient and effective support to my clients.


The differences between cultures, languages, and environments may cause frustration or even conflict, and having new information and ways to handle them will create fresh insights and help you accomplish your goals. I hope after every session my client feel more confident, having healthier boundaries, and enjoy their lives more.


I offer therapy to individuals, couples, and families in English, Mandarin, and Japanese.

We all have unique innate strengths that create our inner awesomeness. However, sometimes we forget or lack the skills to nurture these qualities when we are consumed by the chaos of our day-to-day lives. By recognizing and developing these qualities we will come to recognize and “own our awesome.”   Together, we will take the first steps on your journey to maximize your full potential. We‘ll identify and work on areas where you get stuck, to increase your alignment with your values, as we develop practices that create life-changing shifts and lasting results. 


I am a licensed professional counselor. I completed my Master of Education in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from DePaul University in Chicago. Throughout my career, I’ve held positions in outpatient therapy and residential treatment programs. I have worked with diverse populations and ages including adolescents and teens, adults, and individuals with chronic mental health and physical health issues. I use an integrative approach of strengths-based, person-centered, and psychodynamic techniques.  I strongly believe in the importance of the therapeutic alliance and that clients should feel safe and supported. ​Each session we will collaborate on your treatment to help you meet your personal needs and goals.

My approach to therapy is based on mutual appreciation. Through openness and acceptance, we can work together on personal issues and emotional situations you face. I support individuals in learning to heal their own suffering through discovery of the gentleness, warmth, wisdom, and compassion that is an innate capacity of all human beings. I enjoy working with people on their journeys and helping them to nurture their inner and outer worlds with kindness and awareness.


My practice is informed by cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), psychodynamic techniques, client-centered approach, as well as mindfulness, self-compassion, and Buddhist psychology. My clinical experience includes a wide range of concerns, including depression, anxiety, grief, trauma, spirituality, relationships, substance abuse, and gender identity.


I received my graduate degrees, a Master of Social Work and a Master of Divinity, from the University of Chicago. I have also worked as a hospital chaplain and am familiar with contemplative practices in patient care. For several years now, I have facilitated a weekly meditation group as a way to promote growth and healing in our community. I am fluent in both English and Chinese.
