Dr. Andie Tran (she/her)
DMFT, LMFT # 134973
I am a cis-gender, first generation Vietnamese American, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and trained EMDR therapist, working in private practice. I offer individual and family therapy to individuals residing in California through HIPAA compliant telehealth. I believe that the systems and dynamics that we are raised in set the foundation for how we interact with ourselves and with others. It's important for us to examine our past relationships to recognize the changes needed for our future relationships.
My social justice values inform my work to address the intersectionality of our identities and learning to holistically heal from systemic and institutionalized oppression and marginalization. I am deeply passionate about exploring mental health needs of the Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander population. I have participated in exchange programs, in Shanghai and Cambodia, that examined the cultural differences between Western and East Asian/Southeast Asian mental health practice. I find it important to understand and address the sociocultural and historical influences on the family and the impact of power and privilege on interpersonal and individual dynamics.
