Lani Chin, PsyD
About Lani Chin
In therapy, my goal is to assist you in addressing issues that are difficult to confront on your own, which often manifest as anxiety, depression, or dissatisfaction in relationships and/or your career. I approach our work together collaboratively, through helping you to articulate your thoughts and feelings in a safe, confidential and nonjudgmental environment. My task is to encourage you to express yourself, to clarify your goals and to explore the obstacles that have held you back. I listen, reflect and use clinical methods based on my training and expertise. I strive to help you develop strategies that support the progress you desire. I listen for the patterns in your life and help you identify them so that you can develop a clearer understanding of your life experiences and develop new, more satisfying ways of relating. My understanding as a therapist is informed by my training and clinical experience, but also grounded by a long-held commitment to my own psychological work and development.
