Joy Wong Liu, MA, LMFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Berkeley
I enjoy helping children, youth, parents, and families understand themselves, enjoy each other, and succeed in their goals for health and growth. In recent years, my work has focused on helping children and youth with severe behavioral issues achieve more successes at home and at school. I have worked with children struggling with aggression, property destruction, defiance, and many other behaviors. I also enjoy working with individual adults to help them discover new possibilities and to grow into more vibrant and fulfilling relationships with themselves, with others, and with God.
I use a strength-based approach in psychotherapy and enjoy working with clients from all kinds of cultural backgrounds, faith traditions, and life journeys. A second generation Chinese American, I speak English as well as conversational Mandarin and Cantonese.
