My Approach to Helping

I am a clinical psychologist who works to help clients overcome adversity, cope with emotional difficulties, and achieve important life goals. My approach to therapy is warm, collaborative, flexible, and informed by evidence-based practices. I provide individual psychotherapy for adults and adolescents to address a range of issues, including trauma- and stress-related difficulties, anxiety, depression, and relationship challenges.

I received my doctorate from Harvard University and completed my internship and fellowship through VA Boston and the National Center for PTSD, with appointments at BU School of Medicine and Harvard Medical School. My experience has included extensive work using CBT, DBT, trauma-focused interventions, mindfulness, and exposure-based treatments, in addition to psychodynamic approaches.

I would be happy to speak with you about ways we may be able to work together to meet your needs. You are welcome to call or email to set up an initial consultation.

More Info About My Practice

Individual therapy begins with a thorough assessment to identify primary issues and develop a targeted treatment plan. Treatment is tailored to the unique challenges, strengths, values, and circumstances of each individual client, and is always based on good science.

Dr. Huang combines practical problem-solving strategies with her extensive developmental background to help clients change maladaptive patterns, as well as understand how those patterns may have come about. As we grow up, we adapt to our circumstances and we do our best to cope with the challenges life throws our way. Sometimes, what is resilient in one context becomes problematic in another. For example, a person going through a difficult experience may find that shutting down emotionally enables them to carry on with daily life and feel less pain. Once out of that difficult experience, however, the practice of being shut down might interfere with that person’s ability to experience joy and connection to others. Therapy can help individuals develop tools for changing problematic thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, and develop understanding that can help prevent those patterns from reemerging in the future.
