About Me

Does life seem like trudging through the mud? Do you feel sad and empty and get tired easily? Does life no longer seem enjoyable? Do you struggle to maintain daily responsibilities? I get where you are. Life isn’t all sunshine and rainbows, but you don’t have to go through challenges alone. While pain and harshness of reality are often inevitable, you can discover joy, peace, satisfaction and restoration. In the midst of difficulties, heartbreaks and wounds, I can help you find contentment and healing in your journey and get unstuck and empowered.
Being a therapist is a great privilege and honor, and I deeply value the dignity and uniqueness of each individual. My approach is direct and results-oriented but tailored to your needs, issues and goals in an atmosphere of caring, empathy and compassion.
I’m Ed. I’m excited you found me. I am a bilingual therapist (Mandarin). I have two advanced degrees (Masters of Social Work & Masters of Science in School Psychology), 3000 hours of supervision for licensure and more than twenty years of experience working with people of all ages. I am passionate and specialize in working with individuals struggling with depression, stress, anxiety, ADHD, parenting issues, chronic medical issues and life transitions. I can also work with social workers, schools, nurses, doctors and other individuals in communities.

I applaud you for taking the first step toward healing. I invite you to contact me for a free 15-minute consultation and together, we can assess whether I might be the person to walk with you in your journey to a fulfilling, joyful and satisfying life.

Reviews

Written by K.E. on May 30, 2021 after counseling with Edward (Ed) for 2 weeks

It has been very helpful to have Ed to confide in. He listens to me which is half the journey for me - just to have someone listen and understand. He is very kind and makes it easy for me to share myself with him.
