Alice Hua, Ph.D.
Dr. Hua is dedicated to supporting marginalized communities, including BIPOC, LGBTQIA+ individuals, and people with disabilities, recognizing the importance of acknowledging our full humanity and all of its intersections. As a 1.5 generation Chinese American woman, she holds particular insight into the experiences of immigrants and the kinds of expectations that are common for many in the Asian American diaspora. Dr. Hua has applied this insight in her work as a therapist, working with individuals as they build upon inner strengths and efforts to heal. She integrates a culturally responsive approach to find balance between your inner self and addressing the impacts of oppressive systems.
How I work...
- I view therapy as a collaboration. We will work together to reflect on what matters most to you and build a life that you want.
- Life transitions can be hard. I will meet you where you are, so that you can move forward with confidence and clarity.
- I believe that we live our lives based on lessons that we have learned. We will work together to identify and reinforce the lessons that have helped you thrive.
- Emotions are not good or bad. They just are. Understanding our emotions provides deeper insight into how we understand and interact with the world.
- My primary approach is based in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). I enhance this approach by using techniques from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT).
- I provide online Individual Therapy for Adults (18+) and Elders (60+).
