About Sylvia

It is the brave person who allows him or herself to feel vulnerable, admit there is a problem, and actually take steps to find the right help. You may know family members, friends and other people who feel small, stuck, sad, anxious or angry, and yet never seek outside help their whole lives. By finding the help you need, you are the courageous one.

Come to a safe and confidential space, where, with your earned trust, we explore the things that stop you from living the life you want. We work together to discover the things that support your happiness and growth. We recognize life patterns that no longer serve you, and work to replace them with life-giving thoughts and actions.

It is common to experience loneliness, sadness, anxiety, depression, irritability, anger and/or mood swings. Some have experienced trauma in the past, which may continue to cause problems today. Together, we can work to ease the burdens.

Having traveled and settled in multiple types of communities across the United States of America and abroad, I have lived as an expat and appreciate how difficult moving to a new place can be.

Furthermore, as a child of Asian immigrants to the U.S.A., I grew up with many identities. These experiences have deepened my understanding of the complex interactions that exist across generations, within families, and between different cultures.

I am originally from Baltimore, Maryland, U.S.A.. I am fully trained and certified to practice as a psychiatrist and psychotherapist in the U.S.A.. In Berlin, I am focusing my practice on my therapeutic role as a counsellor to english-speaking people.

In more technical terms, I use mainly a psychodynamic approach, with influences from cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, insight and supportive therapy, and Jungian psychoanalysis.

I welcome your interest and questions.
