Professional statement

Jing Yan is a bilingual and licensed clinical social worker in New York City. She embraces cultural sensitivity while working with clients from diverse backgrounds. Jing has been trained at psychoanalytic institutes, such as the Harlem Family Institute and the National Psychological Association for Psychoanalysis. She works with children, teenagers, adults, and couples.

Jing grew up in China where mental health was not greatly valued. She went to New York University for graduate school to study social work. She believes people can thrive and overcome pain and suffering. Our childhood and family experience shape who we are, but we can choose to be the master of our own life!

Message to clients

I provide a safe space for people to talk about their inner thoughts. Therapy is like a journey that we go on together; I will stay in the moment with clients and help them remove the barriers within themselves.

Life can be difficult sometimes and if you reach out to people, you will have more support and courage to deal with these difficulties. As an immigrant, I understand cultural conflict, as I have developed a new identity in the US. This enriches me and increases my understanding of those who grew up between two or more cultures.

I provide play therapy when working with children who have behavioral problems. I integrate art therapy when working with adolescents. Play and art help young people express themselves freely and allow for self-healing.
