My Background and Approach
Dr. Chen generally incorporates real-world experiences and social skills training into his therapies to maximize the therapy gains. He currently serves as an associate professor of psychology and is the Primary Therapist for an Intensive Outpatient treatment program. Dr. Chen has also presented and lectured at psychology conferences throughout the United States. In therapy, his first goal is to understand why a person is struggling. Then, work with the patient to build resiliency and strength to adapt and overcome life's challenges. Dr. Chen is trained in a variety of different therapy models and adapts his treatment to the needs of each client and to each stage of growth. His training included CBT, DBT, and REBT therapy models. Therapy is an investment in one's emotional development and happiness while finding the purpose or meaning in life. Sessions available in the day, evening, and weekend sessions. Dr. Chen also provides session via secured and encrypted video conferencing.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
If you have any questions or hesitations about therapy, feel free to contact Dr. Chen for a free phone or secure video consultation. There is absolutely no obligation to start therapy and the consultation is a great way to have your questions answered about what therapy is like, what you can expect, and for you to get a feel for what Dr. Chen's therapy model is. He is available by phone most days of the week and will return any call or email within 24-48 hours. However, please remember, consolation requests should not be used for emergency or life-threatening situations. For those, dial 911 or go to your ER. At the end of the day, therapy is simply a restart and refresh on parts of, or all of, life. It's a way to clear out the old and recycling the good parts into a new better creation of life. Much akin to painter reusing a canvas, therapy allows us to draw and create a new purpose and meaning, regardless of what is underneath.
