Struggling to Find Happiness and Intimacy in Your Romantic Relationship?


Tired of Feeling “Less Than” Because of Racial Stereotypes and Microaggressions?


Find greater peace, success, and happiness with an Asian male therapist who has been there, understands your struggles, and has guided dozens of Asian men like you to happier lives.



Your wife crosses her arms again as she shakes her head. She’s frustrated and disappointed because you’ve raised your voice again and criticized her.


It’s so hard to be vulnerable, share how you feel, and get close to her. In heated moments, you end up pushing her away. So, you grab your pillow and slink downstairs to toss and turn all night on the sofa yet again.


Your parents were good, right? They fed and clothed you and pushed you to succeed. And you have it so easy in America; you’d be an ungrateful, spoiled American if you complained…


Yet, your parents weren’t interested at all in your feelings, thoughts, interests, or dreams. Doctor, lawyer, engineer; get good grades and make us look good. There wasn’t space in that picture for you.


Being viewed as “less than” by society and getting bullied for being Asian was just the cherry on top. 


More often than you’d like to admit, you feel unhappy and unfulfilled, insecure and lost. I don’t judge you because that’s how I felt too.


Through the process of life-changing therapy and a meditation practice developed over a decade, I learned how to love myself for who I authentically was. I discovered greater confidence and peace than I could have ever imagined. I also found much more happiness and success in my romantic relationship along the way.


Over the past four years, I’ve been guiding Asian men like you to greater happiness and success. I use powerful Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapy and mindfulness techniques to help you grow. My clients laugh and cry with their wives or girlfriends more than they ever have before. Many found the courage to speak honestly with their parents, setting healthier boundaries and finding more joy in their interactions.


If you’re interested in learning more, I invite you to email me for a free consultation. I’d be happy to answer any questions you have, and we can see how it feels to talk with each other.
