Professional statement

Ace Oh is a psychotherapist serving individuals located in New York. Her practice focuses on in-depth processing of overwhelming emotions and relational dynamics, in a way that facilitates corrective experiences and creates positive shifts in the brain. She integrates skills building and practical tools to support the healing process. Her goal is to improve the emotional and psychological quality of your life, and build a life worth living for.

Ace prioritizes serving the full spectrum of complex-PTSD including racial trauma, religious trauma, immigration trauma, dysfunctional family dynamics, abusive friendships, neglect, manipulation, and abandonment. She also has rich experience in working with high-functioning/high-achieving adult children of parents or caretakers with strong traits of narcissism, borderline personality disorder, bipolar disorder, addiction, and emotion dysregulation.

Message to clients

Few things are harder than struggling alone. You might be holding onto pain from your family, friends, or past relationships. Or it could feel like you're stuck inside a traumatic event that shapes your life. It might feel like no one seems to understand how deeply sad, angry, or helpless you feel. But you're not alone. Healing from trauma is not just a concept; it is an attainable reality.

It would be an honor to be invited on your journey towards healing, reparation and building a life worth living. I believe the goal of therapy is not just to stop the suffering, but to create a sustained life of thriving and joy. I offer a safe and nonjudgmental space for your story, feelings, and thoughts, and prioritize building a relationship of trust where everything can be discussed and examined. As a trauma-specializing therapist, I commit to transparency, authenticity, and a consent-centered pace throughout our work together, while honoring your unique individual experience.

I look forward to building a relationship of safety and empowerment with you. My approach has been described as genuine, nonjudgmental, nurturing and warm. Finding the right fit with a therapist is an important first step for therapy. I invite you to share any concerns and feel empowered to ask questions. Contact me for a free consultation to see if we are a good fit!

Ace is seeing clients remotely via telehealth at this time.
