What do you choose your story to be?
Phuong Tran MA., LCPC
Since attaining my Master's in Marriage and Family Therapy in 2008, I have provided therapeutic services in home and in schools to children and families. Working together with families and teachers I have been able to help create and reinforce a child's 504 or IEP plan to ensure a child's needs are being met.
My experience has also led me to work in crisis situations providing my therapeutic skills and knowledge with children and adults in psychiatric hospitals. My knowledge has helped clients navigate healthier options to manage unresolved trauma and manage emotional dysregulation.
Through my years of working within homes and in schools; I saw substance abuse and addiction take place and I decided to get more training and education and completed my Master's Certificate in Co-occurring Disorders focusing on addiction and mental health. This training directed me to work in Adult Intensive Outpatient (IOP) Treatment Centers facilitating groups and providing therapy to couples and families.
In my free time, I enjoy reading, cooking, baking, photography, and sewing.
My goal as a therapist is to help you reach a deeper understanding of your struggles and to help create awareness in your life. My belief is once these strengths are recognized and practiced, we can begin working towards our greater potential and begin the healing process or better management of our daily life. I believe people are resilient and have the capacity to heal if we choose to. I teach practical skills and provide tools that you, you and your partner, child(ren), and family can use every day.
I specialize in marriage and family therapy (Gottman techniques) and addiction issues. I believe in some forms of Medicated Assisted Therapies (MAT) to manage addiction struggles. I utilize a variety of modalities including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), an integration of Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) skills, Narrative therapy, and Motivational Interviewing while incorporating a holistic viewpoint of our body and mind.
