Hi! My name is Jimmy Yang. I have a Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology, Marriage Family Therapy from the University of San Francisco and a Bachelor’s Degree in History and Education from UC Davis. I have worked with a diverse population of children and adolescents experiencing a wide variety of mental health illnesses including depression, anxiety, trauma, substance use, and eating disorders.
In addition, my life experience and concepts of liberation psychology have given me an opportunity to utilize hip hop pedagogy and different mediums of expressive art to affirm cultural identities and support healing from a cultural perspective.
I believe that every individual is unique; therefore, I focus and value each person holistically for who they are. My compassion, mellow personality, and unwavering genuine curiosity in learning about a person’s story enables me to develop organic therapeutic relationships. I offer a safe and non-judgmental space while providing psychotherapy, psychoeducation, and therapeutic approaches to invite clients to explore their own strengths and capabilities to reach their desired outcome.
I am originally from Southern California. I have lived in the Bay Area since 2008. I enjoy spending quality time with family and friends, traveling the world, learning about different cultures, listening to music, hiking, exercising, and staying active. My hobbies are creative writing, painting, reading, and boxing.
In addition to English, I speak Hmong.
