Hey, my name is Angela (she/they)

You're here because you're overwhelmed, hurting from a break up or scared of a potential break up, fearful of repeating the same mistakes your parents did in marriage or parenting, dealing with a new health diagnosis, wanting a promotion at work, struggling with people pleasing/perfectionism and imposter syndrome. 

You've tried working with other therapists, self help books, journaling, podcasts, following social media therapists, but it hasn't helped you get to the root of your problems. 

I know it's hard to believe, but there is hope. 

There are ways to be released from being in survival mode. You can let go of things or people that no longer serve you. 

We all face struggles that might be so big and overwhelming that we can't deal with it on our own. The good news is that you don't have to do it on your own. I can come along with you in your journey of pain and grief. 

Imagine what it would be like to trust yourself again. To believe in yourself. To have the guts to take risks, do hard things, to get out there again and connect with friends and loved ones. Imagine feeling so at home and safe in your body. to feel pleasure again! 

I am ready to work with you whenever you are ready. I am here with you. 


In community,

Angela Tam

Issues that I feel comfortable working with:

  • Individual/Dyad Work

  • Identity and culture balancing- navigating your ethnic identity along with cultural expectations and social programming

  • Workplace discrimination- dealing with micro aggressions, discrimination, white fragility, and continually being "othered"

  • Racialized imposter syndrome- the experience of constant self doubt and a sense of not belonging due to internalized white supremacy 

  • Unresolved childhood wounds- addressing attachment wounds resulting from being a child of emotionally immature or unavailable parents. 

  • Emotional neglect and healing- confronting the impact of long term emotional neglect or lack of availability in their own upbringing and wanting to cultivate emotional regulation skills for themselves and their children

  • Money Wounds- dealing with the impact of having caregivers experience conflict or stress about money, avoidance about money, overspending/underspending and scarcity issues around money

  • Fear of vulnerability/asking for help- seeing this fear as a protective strategy and working with protectors to come up with different strategy for safety in order to build intimacy

  • co dependency- collectivism does not mean that one is codependent, but it can sometimes be difficult to distinguish, what is your stuff and what is someone else's stuff. 

Populations that I feel comfortable working with:

  • Those in the tech/tech adjacent industries

  • Therapists/social workers, medical practitioners

  • QTBIPOC folx

  • 1st/2nd/3rd Generation Immigrants of color

  • Adult children of Refugees (Vietnam, Korean, and Cambodian Wars)

  • Asian womxn/femmes

My offerings:

  • Individual and couples therapy

  • Training and workshops

  • Consultations for other clinicians 

  • Clinical Supervision for Mental Health Therapist Associates (LMHCA's)

  • Business coaching

Why people like working with me:

  • I am real. I am honest and upfront. I am a human. I disclose with you about what's going on in my life and real life examples of my struggles. I am funny and I throw curse words around occasionally.

  • I am compassionate and kind. I know that I have judgmental and critical parts, but I work really hard to be in relationship with them so that they can give us space in our therapy sessions. 

  • I come prepared to session-- ready to do the work with you.

  • Nothing surprises me. I've seen and heard it all. After 10 years of being a clinician and being in my 40s, I've got some life experience and have very little that surprises me. 

  • I am open to feedback and will not hesitate to take responsibility of my part in a rupture of trust.

  • I help people get to the root of the issue pretty fast and I am pretty keen on spotting unhelpful patterns, critical self talk, dismissiveness and create space so you can advocate for what you want.
