Introduction 
 

Chien is a bilingual counseling psychologist registered in Taiwan, fluent in both Mandarin and English. She was born and raised in Taiwan, lived in the U.S. for the past 10 years — this has given her a unique way of working, combining both Eastern and Western philosophy/methods of healing into her practice. She is global minded, respects each individual with their cultural perspective and upbringing, understands the difficulty of cultural adjustment, language issues, and social isolation/problems. 

 

Chien has studied and practiced extensively with various psychological and body-mind healing methods, such as somatic experiencing, gestalt therapy, Jung psychology, psychodynamic, attachment theory, psychodrama, person-centered psychotherapy, MBSR, NLP, clinical hypnosis, yoga, expressive arts, and dance movements therapy. 

 

Chien’s therapeutic style is gentle yet precise, unconditional acceptance with attentive listening and understanding, she believes that the process of therapy is to help the clients to access the innate capacity of healing which has been long forgotten and explore various aspects of psyche hidden in the subconsciousness, this could in turn helping them to come back to the authentic self within where one feels most like oneself — coming back home to the core of our hearts. 

 

She offers counseling psychotherapy, hypnosis sessions, somatic experiencing sessions (trauma healing work) as well as expressive arts and body movement workshops, online session is also available upon request.
