Hi there! I'm MaiLinh (my-LIN) (she/her). I am a master's level student in the Couple and Family Therapy program at Antioch University Seattle.
I recognize dysfunctional patterns can be hard to break, and change can be not only hard, but also scary. I work with clients to uncover what beliefs, behaviors and patterns are getting in the way of their healing, healthy relationships, and ability to thrive. My goal is to work alongside my clients with openness, curiosity, and compassion for each individual’s history, cultural practices, values, and goals. As a second generation, bi-racial woman of color, I like to help my clients examine and unpack internalized oppression and explore their racial and ethnic identities. My interests are working with individuals, couples and families from all backgrounds who are struggling with relationship dysfunction, depression, anxiety, life transitions, loss and grief, and boundaries.
I use a whole-person, collaborative, intersectional, and strengths based approach to working with clients. I also always look at my client through a systemic lens considering all levels of their world - family of origin, relationships, community, etc. My approach is personalized to the needs of the client, but I draw from attachment theory, Narrative Therapy, Emotion-focused Couples Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, and Brief Strategic approaches. I look forward to working with you!
