Dr. Hua works with young, middle-aged, and older adults. She works with individuals experiencing anxiety, depression, trauma, perfectionism, burnout, and life transitions (e.g., changes in work/relationships, loss of a loved one, moving to a new place, etc). She also works with individuals adjusting to recent cognitive changes (e.g., COVID brain fog, mild cognitive impairment) and family members providing care for loved ones with a progressive neurological disorder (e.g., dementia). She primarily draws techniques from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and has also utilized Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), CBT for insomnia, and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT).
Dr. Hua is dedicated to supporting BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, and other marginalized communities, 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.
