Dr. Huong Diep, PsyD, Psychologist in San Diego
Are you looking for a gender affirming and LGBTQ highly trained psychologist for psychotherapy and/or psychological testing for your child, teen or for yourself? Are you are in a period of transition (with your gender identity, your relationship status, your career prospects) and despite being insightful and intelligent; you can't seem to "figure it out" on your own? Are you tired of feeling sad, anxious, and worried? Do you want to re-discover joy and mental wellness? Please reach out to me. It would be an honor to accompany you on this journey of self-discovery.
As a Vietnamese-American, Spanish speaking psychologist who has lived, worked and traveled in more than 40 countries; I offer a unique, empathic and compassionate perspective. Together we will dig and explore because you also believe "the unexamined life is not worth living."- Socrates
My specialties include the intersections of gender (cisgender, transgender, gender non-binary, gender fluid, agender, your own gender), culture (racial, ethnic, familial, religious) and language (including the vocabulary we use to speak to ourselves) and the impact of these potentially conflicting layers on our mental health and emotional well-being.
