I am a bilingual clinician with over 8 years of experience working with children, adolescents, and adults with a variety of concerns. I have provided bilingual services in English and Mandarin in a variety of settings, including domestic violence shelters, community mental health counseling centers, university counseling centers, and group practice. I work with a number of concerns, but I feel especially rewarded in working with those struggling with the aftermath trauma, interpersonal concerns, coping with life and cultural transitions, depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, and racial and cultural identity development issues.
In therapy, I aim to create a safe and supportive environment and conduct therapy in the context of a genuine relationship with my clients. I utilize a variety of theories and techniques from psychodynamic therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, existential therapy, and emotion-focused therapy.

Tao Liu's Groups

Meier Clinics

The Meier Clinics of Illinois established the first clinic in Wheaton, a western suburb of Chicago. Mrs. Nancy Brown, the Meier Clinics President, and sister of Paul Meier, M.D., originally worked with her brother in establishing the first Meier Clinics in Richardson, Texas in 1976. We’ve grown from two counselors to a clinical staff of approximately 35 psychiatrists, psychologists, licensed master level counselors, nurses, and doctoral interns to provide a wide range of counseling needs.
