About

Everyone is unique. Your thoughts, feelings and needs are shaped by your own background, family history, past interpersonal encounters and other significant events, including early child trauma. Psychotherapy is an emotional process. As we discuss your concerns, it will surface unexamined parts of your life of which you may not be aware or want to experience. My central role as your therapist is to help you talk about and understand more fully these unexamined thoughts, feelings, and needs in the context of your past, develop greater understanding, tolerance and acceptance, and to bring changes to your current situation.
Over the years, I have developed specialties in treating individuals with severe mental illnesses, e.g. psychosis and autistic spectrum disorders, characterological disorders, complex trauma, and history of abuse. I also work extensively with the local Asian and Asian-American community who struggle with acculturation and other immigration-related struggles.
Spirituality is central to many of us. In particular, I work with Christians who struggle with spiritual abuse, spiritual intimacy, excessive guilt, with the hopes of enhancing your spiritual experiences. For further details of my practice, please visit www.germancheungpsyd.com
