Professional statement

Beverly Liang, LMSW is a clinical social worker working out of Manhattan and virtually. She specializes in racial and ethnic identity development, Asian American identity, and immigrant/assimilation issues for adults.

Beverly believes that it is through stories and language that we come to understand ourselves. Therapy allows for a rare space where together we come to listen and to be listened to, and to understand and evolve those stories. Over the course of a fifteen year long career in design and branding, Beverly became more interested in creating stories for people — not companies — and how these stories could change over time.

Since training as a clinical social worker at the Silberman School of Social Work, Beverly has worked in diverse settings including outpatient community mental health clinics and older adult centers. She is the recipient of the Hunter College's Carmen Ortiz Hendricks Award for Excellence in Social Work Practice, which is given to an exemplary graduating student with commitment to practice with underrepresented populations.

Beverly's experience as a researcher focused on ethnic identity development grounds her approach to clinical work. As part of Project CARA (COVID-19, Asian Americans, Resiliency, and Allyship), a research group at NYU, she examines Asian American identity, belonging, and civic responsibility during the pandemic and its effects on ethnic identity development. She is sensitive to issues of race, culture, and class and how they play out in our self perceptions and within the therapeutic relationship itself.

Message to clients

I view therapy as a respite to our screen obsessed world, and place great importance on the connection between myself and those I work with. I also believe in the primacy of one’s family and early relationships as a model for how one relates to relationships in the present. However, family is not destiny, and my hope is that in working together, we can find the possibility of change and growth over time. This is a journey we take alongside each other, one that is not necessarily easy, and that is all the more worthwhile for it.
