Welcome to Dr. Grace Chen, LMFT
I am Dr. Grace Chen, a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Welcome to my website! I am Dr. Grace Chen, a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I specialized in working with individuals who suffered from depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and couples who experienced conflicts and infidelity recovery.
As a licensed marriage and family therapist, I see mental health issues from relationship lenses. That is, I see the mental health issues are the symptoms of relationship problems. My specialty areas are working with adults suffering from Depression, Anxiety, PTSD, and Trauma Recovery as individuals or as a couple.
I am an attachment-oriented therapist. With attachment as the foundation of my therapy approach, the primary goal for therapy is to help the individual or couples transform their childhood insecure attachment orientation to the functioning secure attachment in adulthood.
I am a certified Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR) therapist. EMDR is my primary treatment model (with attachment as a foundation) when working with clients with trauma history.
Drs. John and Julie Gottman’s model (Gottman’s Model) are my frameworks when conceptualizing the couple’s relationship issues. My specialty areas are working with couples in communication, conflict resolution, and infidelity recovery. As a Taiwanese immigrant, I am a bilingual (English and Mandarin Chinese) and bi-cultural (American and Chinese/Asian) therapist. I have also been working with immigrant couples and couples who come from two different cultures.
My overarching goal for therapy is TRANSFORMATION. I believe that change is not enough as a goal for psychotherapy. We can all make changes today and change back tomorrow. I think that the goal for psychotherapy is transformation. Once transformed, you can walk onto a different path towards a meaningful and joyful life with a sense of fulfillment and joy.
“As a therapist, I am a companion. I try to help people tune into their own wisdom.”
~ Virginia Satir
