Taising Chen is not currently accepting new clients.

Therapy is a place where you can express your hardships, explore and build your resilience, and learn to embrace transformations. I am committed to offer mental health services that meet your unique needs as individuals, couples, relationships, families, communities, and groups. I will meet you collaboratively through a therapeutic process where you can exist among confidentiality, validation, and support in a non-judgmental setting. After working over 18 years in direct services, I believe that it is important to find the right therapist-client match. I offer free 15-20 minute phone consultations prior to the 1st appointment. For more information: www.therapywithtaising.com

I have concentrations working with: intimate/social/cross-cultural relationship difficulties; building sense of self/community; trauma & post traumatic stress; anxiety; depression; stress/burnout; chronic illness & disability; grief & loss; significant life transitions; self-judgment; body image; social/emotional skills. I also offer opportunities for expressive arts in therapy - providing creative ways to relate/reflect/interact.

I specialize in working with people that identify with one or more of the following: lesbian, gay, bisexual, queer, questioning, & pansexual; trans*, genderqueer, intersex & gender non-conforming; people of color; living with chronic illness and/or disability; survivors of abuse/violence/trauma; creative/critical thinkers; artists/activists/educators; kink & poly friendly; and alternative family structures.
