Counseling can be a great place to talk about your problems to someone who can listen to your situation without judgment. It can be a place to get some warm support, objective advice, and useful ideas about how to cope through difficult times in your life. You may leave feeling less worried, more relaxed, and feeling more in control of your life.
I have over 11 years of professional counseling experience, and have helped hundreds of people to find ways to make their lives happier, more balanced, and more purposeful. I create a safe, non-judgmental atmosphere where you can feel comfortable to share you’re the feelings and thoughts that you may find hard to share with others. In addition to warmth and humor, I can give you coping techniques that are based on clinical research, and proven to work for most people.
“This was the best experience I’ve had with therapy. Lia gave me great advice on how to handle my panic attacks. It was helpful to get information that other doctors never gave me. I liked being able to work on overcoming the anxiety without being medicated. She was always very kind and listened to what I needed to talk about.” –Client
” I was struggling with a long period of anxiety and depression as a result the break-up. Lia was able to help me understand my part in the cycle of behavior and showed me how to extract myself from the situation and move on with my life. She gave me tools to help focus on my wellbeing and stop events from the past influencing my future. Lia seemed to listen actively and carefully to what I was saying and was able to understand what I was expressing sometimes even before I fully understood it myself. I appreciated that her office was comfortable, clean and quiet. I found it very easy to relax and say what needed to be said.”–Client
“I felt like Lia really cared and was willing to help. Counseling felt like a safe place where I didn’t feel judged and I could talk honestly about my feelings without worrying what the other person thinks of me. My goal for therapy was to get out of feeling stuck especially with my career and also to gain self confidence. I became more open to new experiences, people, and adventures as a result of therapy. Lia helped me step by step through the interview process and I was able to get a new job. She kept pushing me every week and encouraging me to keep trying.”–Client
““Lia’s calm demeanor was nice–nothing felt forced or hurried. Also for every story I’d share there was always a comment–felt listened to and had engagement. I also enjoyed the good laughs that would come up during conversations. Lia helped me by helping me deal with my fears and feelings and initially overcoming the hardship of struggling with a mental illness. Lia is a great listener with comments that are reflective and engaging.” — Client
“Lia is good at finding out what the situation is, in a gentle and non-intrusive way. Within the first session, she is able to build a strong rapport, and able to pinpoint the problems my family is having. Her ideas and suggestions towards the problems are innovative and give me insight about my relationship. I can’t thank her enough and appreciate all her efforts!” –Client

I’m writing this next post out of the overwhelming therapy calls that I have been getting from husbands wanting help with their marriages. Most of these guys are not adulterers or abusers; they are just good people who have trouble understanding women and what they want. So I decided to write this article in the […]Read More
I feel like lately there’s been a lot of talk among twenty somethings about chivalry. Interestingly enough, the talk has been initiated from the men, not the women. Usually the talk is from well-meaning, caring men who are eager to attract the right one using chivalrous tactics. It’s a good value to have And you […]Read More
Lia, I feel so overwhelmed with all the things and activities that are on my plate! I don’t want to miss out on stuff but sometimes I feel like I’m just going to activities to “get it over with” and then it’s on to the next! How should I spend my free time so it’s […]Read More
Therapy is not the typical Asian American career. I was lucky enough that I was naive enough to follow my dreams despite all the potential impracticalities. It wasn’t easy but I know for sure that this was what I was meant to do. I felt so priviledged to be doing something I love and also […]Read More
