Professional statement

Dr. June Liang works with professionals, college students, and parents (including new moms) who are seeking help with anxiety, depression, perfectionism, developmental trauma, and eating and weight issues. She treats clients from all cultural/ethnic backgrounds.

Dr. Liang provides individually-tailored treatment that combines:
Scientifically-validated therapies (CBT, DBT, ACT, Emotionally-focused
therapy), Self-compassion and Self-acceptance, and Mind-body Wellness.
Life coaching is also available for clients who are wishing to discover their true essence, break through mental and emotional barriers, and realize their full potential.

Dr. Liang received her Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the UCSD/SDSU Joint Doctoral Program in Clinical Psychology. She completed her clinical neuropsychology internship at the San Diego VA Healthcare System and UCSD Child and Adolescent Psychiatric Services and completed practicum placements at Rady Children's Hospital, San Diego. In her post-doctoral training, she was a therapist and researcher at the UCSD Center for Healthy Eating and Activity Research (CHEAR) and UCSD Eating Disorders Treatment and Research Center. She developed, researched, and provided novel, family-based treatments for eating disorders and obesity. Her work also focused on targeting the traits related to perfectionism. As Scientific Director of UCSD CHEAR, she designed and implemented large scale research studies examining the relationships between mental health, parenting, neurocognition, weight, and overeating. She has written scientific articles published in national peer-reviewed journals and continually keeps abreast of emerging research on the links between brain, behavior and emotions.

Dr. Liang is primarily offering remote/video sessions at this time due to COVID-19, though in-person appointments can be arranged on an as-needed basis.


Message to clients

Are you a hardworking, caring, driven and capable person who is running on a motor that can't stop? Being a perfectionist, super-parent, or overachiever is not sustainable. Over time, it leads to burnout, an unhealthy lifestyle, and . The good news is, it doesn't have to be this way. You can get out of this negative cycle if you are open to new possibilities and get the right help.

I provide a supportive, empathic, and safe space for you to be yourself. I honor you as a "whole person" as well as work with you to understand the root of the problems and develop practical skills and sustainable solutions. My approach is innovative, compassionate, holistic, non-judgmental and collaborative. I am passionate about helping my clients gain insight, let go of uncomfortable emotions such as shame, discover meaningful purpose, and evolve into the highest version of themselves.

After researching, developing and applying effective, science-based skills that have helped many of my clients now work smarter, not necessarily harder, stress less and have more time for what really matters.

Let's work together to help you show up as the healthiest and happiest version of you so you can contribute from a place of love and joy. I look forward to starting on this journey to help you grow from surviving to thriving.
