Hello, I'm Tra Hoang. I am looking forward to speaking with you.
Licensed Clinical Social Worker in New York, NY
I help individuals explore and understand their own racial identity and the impact it has on their mental health and well-being. I also work collaboratively with patients to address issues related to racial trauma, discrimination, and microaggressions, as well as to develop coping strategies and resilience in the face of these challenges.
With my background in Social Work, I have an understanding of how power and privilege operate within society and how they can contribute to the marginalization and oppression of individuals and groups based on their cultural identity. I believe that understanding cultural and systemic oppression is an essential component of providing effective and culturally sensitive mental health care to individuals from diverse backgrounds.
I use various evidence-based therapeutic approaches to help individuals manage and overcome their anxiety symptoms. These approaches may include cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), exposure therapy, mindfulness-based interventions, and relaxation techniques. I often also work with patients to identify and address any underlying issues or stressors that may be contributing to their anxiety.
I will work collaboratively with you to identify negative or unhelpful thought patterns and beliefs, and to challenge and replace them with more realistic and positive ones. We will also work on identifying and changing patterns of behavior that may be reinforcing your negative thoughts or emotions.
Psychodynamic therapy is a form of talk therapy that focuses on helping individuals explore and understand the unconscious thoughts and emotions that may be contributing to their current struggles. This therapy is based on the idea that past experiences, particularly those from childhood, can shape a person's beliefs, behaviors, and relationships.
We will work on developing present-moment awareness and non-judgmental acceptance of thoughts, emotions, and physical sensations. This involves talking about things that come to your mind, being curious about your thoughts, and paying attention to the present moment without judgment.
