About me

Hi! I'm Sharon, a licensed therapist, 5th generation Chinese American, and mom of an exuberant preschooler. I use she/her pronouns, and was born and raised in the East Bay. I help new moms acknowledge all the different feelings they have about themselves and others. It's exploratory, nonjudgemental and often leads to conversations about boundaries, family messages, needs for connection and intergenerational trauma (esp. for AAPI clients).

Service introduction

I offer a free 15 minute phone consultation so I can hear a little bit about what you're looking for in therapy and also answer any questions you might have. We can talk about what goals you might have, whether we would be a good fit, and then scheduling logistics. My rate for sessions is $150 per 50-minute session. I suggest scheduling weekly for the first month in order to get to know each other and also pause to review how therapy is working for you. Sometimes I have capability for sliding scale clients on a need basis. Feel free to inquire.
