About My Practice

I care about your well-being because your happiness and mental health is my passion. My approach is compassionate, nonjudgmental, and collaborative. I can help you understand and change the negative patterns that contribute to your emotional distress. I’ll teach you innovative techniques to enhance your mood, improve your relationships, and live a happier, more meaningful life. As a former corporate high-tech employee, an immigrant, and an LGBTQ person of color, I can relate to many of your struggles.

My approach to therapy over the last decade has been holistic. I learned Cognitive Behavioral Therapy from Dr. David Burns. I am a team lead at his weekly Stanford class. For 20+ years, I’ve practiced and taught mindfulness meditation. I was a Dale Carnegie career coach. I collaborate with primary care physicians to create integrated treatments for teenagers and adults involving mental, physical, and nutrition-based therapies.

I obtained a MSW degree specialized in Community Mental Health from California State University. I received a B.Sc in Engineering from UCLA and a graduate degree in Management from Stanford University. I spent many years at tech companies, where I observed colleagues struggling emotionally with work, discrimination, and relationship challenges. All of my career experiences have contributed to the pursuit of my passion: helping people make the changes they seek in their lives.
