I'm Lien Lac, a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in California with the number 111866. I have been working in the field for over five years. I received my Master’s degree at the John F. Kennedy University. My therapeutic orientation is person-centered therapy, which means that I care about your feelings and thoughts. In addition to my warm and caring style, I also bring other techniques from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Mindfulness skills to help with shaping thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. I have helped others improve coping skills to better manage their anxiety, anger, depression, as well as improving behaviors related to eating disorder
What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?
Together, let's develop attainable treatment goal(s) you feel comfortable. From here, we can learn about those deep emotions and find solutions and coping tools you'd like to use in order to manage them.
What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?
With flexibility and what you are ready for, I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in order to help improve understanding of how having different perception can improve mood and behaviors. When you are ready, I can also explain to you how meditation and mindfulness skills can be beneficial. I also use Solution-Focused therapy to find out what has helped in the past and how to bring what worked in the past to present. Additionally, my style is leaning toward strength-based therapy.
Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.
I do individual therapy with adults. I have made many successes in graduating my clients who have struggles pertaining to stress and anxiety, anger, trauma, and eating disorder. I have understanding regarding multi-cultural as being an Asian immigrant myself who has been working with variety of population.
