Therapist in Torrance, California Amy Huang, LCSW

Amy Huang, LCSW

I am delighted to join my clients on their journey to self-improvement! I am a firm believer that people are resilient and utilize a strengths-based approach. I see recovery as a continuum and people will change if they are willing to put in the time and effort. I am committed to helping people achieve their lifelong dreams.

I am a licensed clinical social worker dedicated to working with clients for the past 22 years. I also possess a doctoral degree in social work from the University of Sydney. I can relate to those who have experienced trauma and have had to learn to be authentic with their feelings. Counseling has saved my life, and I wanted to be in a meaningful profession that worked closely with others to enhance their wellbeing.

As a clinician, I tend to think outside the box, to listen in a non-judgmental fashion, and to provide support to my clients whenever appropriate. I am EMDR certified and also utilize other therapeutic approaches such as motivational interviewing, acceptance commitment therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectic behavioral and emotion-focused therapy. I am also comfortable with crisis intervention and with helping clients through difficult life transitions.

I have counseled adolescents and adults who have experienced depression, anxiety, trauma, post-traumatic stress symptoms, autism, and attention deficit disorders. I enjoy working with people from diverse cultural backgrounds including immigrants, first and second generation Americans, LGBTQ populations, adolescents, adults and older adult populations.
