I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist (PSY28295) who specializes in providing psychodiagnostic, neuropsychological, and forensic assessment to children and adults. I also provide psychodynamic and cognitive behavioral psychotherapy to children and adults. I have experience in treating numerous psychological disorders and supporting patients through difficult times, conflictual relationships, and troubling emotions. I often work with students from UC Berkeley and the surrounding area. I am also able to provide therapy services in Cantonese.

Patient-therapist interactions often vary, but the thing my patients value is my supportive, accepting, and interactive style. I work to develop an approach based on what seems helpful for the person I am meeting with. For example, some patients, especially at the beginning of therapy, find questions helpful; others need to talk about whatever is urgent while I listen.

As we talk over the patient’s life experience, things that may feel vague, confusing, and even difficult will begin to emerge. Together we will put together the various experiences to understand the development of patterns or styles of relating to the world. When patients can understand their experience rather than blame themselves for frustrations and disappointments, they are ready to choose different options and take risks they didn’t believe they could.

My goal is to help you with a range of life issues that may include:

 

  • Anxiety, depression, and mood disorders​​

  • Trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

  • Cross cultural issues

  • Student life

    • Attention Deficit/(Hyperactivity) Disorder assessment

    • Autism assessments

  • Stress management and adjustment to life changes

  • Communication difficulties

  • Improving relationships, including marital conflict, divorce, and separation

  • Legal and forensic issues

    • Pre-adoption evaluations​
