While you are browsing this site, maybe you are going through a tough time right now. It’s too much for you. You want to change, but don't know how to move forward.

Am I enough? Am I lovable?

You are not alone! I am Lingyan Chen, Linda(She/her), an international psychotherapist. I am a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist Associate (LMFTA) in Washington and a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in China. My work is to collaborate with you to bring about your preferred version of yourself, your family, and your relationships.  


Years of clinical experience helps me understand that everyone’s challenge is different, but everyone yeans for connection and being understood. I believe moments of encounter, through psychotherapy, provide validation, supports, and connections, which leads to transformation and change. 


I look forward to accompanying you on this healing journey and seeing you regain the freedom and beauty of life.

Encounter therapy, Change begins.
