You are a hardworking, young professional who would much rather be feeling something than feeling nothing at all. Do you ever wish you could figure out what is wrong so that getting up in the morning and going about your day is effortless and, dare I say it, even...fun?
You get along with people and people rely on you, but sometimes you do not feel as though you belong, or that people really know you. Sometimes it feels overwhelming. Other times, it feels like you are running on auto-pilot and just going through the motions. Do you ever wish you could finally like yourself, inside and out?
I am Lan Nguyen (like "Mulan" without the "mu" — "Win"), and I come alongside millennials, AAPI, and BIPOC clients who try very hard to feel good enough but just do not know how to get there. My clients are often driven by their self-critical and people pleasing tendencies — no one has higher standards than the ones they have for themselves, which leads to burnout, overthinking, and worthlessness. When it is their turn to speak up or express themselves, they often struggle to describe what they need or what they feel.
That often means that they are feeling stuck or trapped in unfulfilling or toxic relationships, whether they be marriages, boyfriend/girlfriend relationships, or abusive family members dynamics.
If you are done with being the victim, done with self-doubt and self-sabotaging, then look no further— I equip clients with the knowledge, skills, and tools so they can grow in self-awareness, bringing victory, hope, and freedom back into their lives. Then, they can heal deeply and break free from the self-sabotaging habits of second-guessing and overthinking. I’ve helped 500 clients (and counting!) break the cycle of childhood trauma and transform their lives.
My clients and I connect virtually because I believe in their capacity for self-healing and I advocate for the healing they deserve and they believe that I understand their issues and accept them without judgment! Therapy sessions should be a place where you feel safe to process the hurts of your past and present. As a survivor of trauma, I understand it is scary to open up— sometimes it feels less risky to try to white-knuckle, strive, and scrape together moments of peace. But you deserve to be heard!
And you do not have to heal alone. I understand that, at the end of the day, we are all humans trying to make sense of the cards we have been dealt. Together, we can make it a winning hand.
