Yu Ling Han, PhD, Psychologist in Washington
Finding the right therapist can be quite daunting. In your sessions I will help you understand the specific ways your body carries stress, how this affect your thoughts, and how you tend to embrace life that perpetuates your emotional reactions. I will teach you skills so that you can use them in your daily life to help soften your difficult emotions, and mange stress more effectively. While my work is helping clients who struggle with depression/anxiety, anger/sadness, my areas of specialization include: 1) pregnancy/postpartum, 2) trauma/loss/bereavement, 3) non-traditional couple/family formation, 4) adoption, 5) Third Culture Kid, 6) LGBQ.
I have worked with many expats, and Third-Culture Kids, helping them readjust to this culture. I also have much experience working with children and teens. I can help parents figure the best way to address their child's challenges at home/school by providing "Executive Facilitator Role/Parent Consultation."
Many of my clients with prior therapy experience have stated how they appreciate that I am very engaged and interactive -- my style is relational, experiential, humanistic -- that I provide specific tools to manage their difficult emotions. I do a form of therapy that helps clients be more resourceful and resilient.
