Clinical Extern, Doctoral Candidate

Weiyi Liao

Therapy is a journey, one that is daunting, challenging, and strenuous. I would like to picture it as a hero’s journey, where you either start with suffering or calling. In most stories, heroes overcome numerous difficulties, gather a group of allies, and defeat their enemies. However, in therapy, there are no obvious enemy, no concrete barriers. It will be two of us working together to explore your inner world and crack some puzzles. At the end of this journey, I hope you find it worthy of all the efforts and struggles.

Every person is a unique individual and has their own strengths. I hope I can help you know yourself better, accept yourself, appreciate yourself, and provide a space to talk about your struggles. I believe life is a journey, not a race. And I will be grateful if you allow me to join this journey with you.

I utilize both behavioral therapy and dynamic therapy. This means that I really value the relationship between us because most of times, the therapeutic relationship reflects one’s relationships outside of counseling room. Also, a good working alliance is the stepstone to successful change. In addition, I provide clients with knowledge, tools, skills they need to improve their life satisfactions. Whether it’s academic achievement, interpersonal relationships, or family issues, we believe that human behavior can be observed, changed, and shaped.

My goal is to help you achieve your goal. Therapy is a collaborative process where we will constantly adjust what we want and what we can achieve. We achieve this by helping you increase self-awareness, regulate emotions, improve communication skills, recognize relational patterns, practice mindfulness, and learn cutting-edge psychology findings. Some of the treatment modes I’ve learned and used with clients include Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Brief Dynamic Therapy, and Mindfulness based practices.
