Lingyan Chen, MA, MFTA

Description of Counselor/Practice

Do you feel stuck in your life and do not know how to move forward? Do you feel inadequate and find it difficult to find good in yourself and your life? Do you often try to please others while ignoring your own needs? Do you struggle to maintain intimate relationships? Do you sometimes feel confused and dissatisfied about yourself and want to know who you are and want to be? If any of these resonates with you, I may be your therapist. I value authenticity, curiosity, and transparency. My goal is to hold a safe space for you to explore yourself, to be heard, known and understood, and to make meaningful changes. We will start from addressing those you bring to me, develop treatment goals and plans, and help you move closer and closer to the life you want. Years of clinical practice and personal analysis have led me to believe that everyone's pain is different, but people are connected on the bottom. Being Asian helps me empathize with bicultural backgrounds, yet I'm eager to learn about other groups. Together, we can work towards regaining your freedom to pursue loving relationships and satisfying work.
