Hello, my name is Chan. I am originally from Charleston, South Carolina, by way of Albany, Georgia. I graduated from Georgia Southern University with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology, received my master's degree in Counselor Education with a concentration in mental health from Georgia Southern University, and I am currently pursuing my doctoral degree in Counselor Education at the University of Iowa. Often in life, we face difficulties, and we struggle to navigate during those hard times. Seeking help does not illustrate weakness. It demonstrates strength, and it is okay to say you need help or a little support. As a counselor, I use a non-authoritative approach that allows my clients to lead our discussions and discover their solutions. I take a person-centered approach to therapy. I provide my clients with empathy and unconditional positive regard. I have experience working with individuals, children, and families of all ages. I am extremely passionate about working with children and individuals from diverse backgrounds struggling with their mental health and wellness. I also have experience working with individuals with mild intellectual disabilities. I have experience in areas of anxiety, depression, marital/ relationship problems, and other mental health struggles. I believe that everyone is capable of self-love, self-acceptance, and change. We will set your goals and explore specific patterns and circumstances that affect your physical, mental, and emotional health. I take a collaborative approach to counseling, and I believe that my clients are capable of self-love, self-acceptance, and change. Together we will set your goals and explore specific patterns and circumstances that affect your physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing. I look forward to being part of your therapeutic journey, and remember, it is okay not to be okay.
