Thanh Nguyen, MSW, LICSW

Thanh treats patients between the ages of 18 and 85 years old.

Thanh believes strongly in the therapeutic relationship as the primary source of healing. She practices holistically, with a warm and compassionate relational style. She provides a safe space in which clients may gain insight into underlying issues and process painful experiences from the past and present. Taking a strengths-based, trauma informed, and educational approach, Thanh collaborates with clients to identify and shift self-defeating patterns and to develop skills that create healthier ways of being. Her hope for each client is that they learn to cultivate self-trust and access their innate capacities for change and growth. She provides individual therapy for young adults and adults struggling with anxiety, depression, low self- esteem, shame, complex trauma, PTSD, grief and loss, relationship issues, and life transitions. Her therapeutic orientation is rooted in psychodynamic and attachment theories, and integrates Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Narrative Therapy, and principles of interpersonal neurobiology. She has a particular interest in weaving mindfulness and self-compassion into psychotherapy. It is Thanh’s honor to support clients in their journey toward rediscovering a sense of clarity, balance, and joy, and learning to trust in themselves and their ability to live with purpose and authenticity.
