Professional statement

Ker Yang is a Licensed Marriage and Family therapist and lives in Los Angeles, California. She can work with anyone who is a resident of California. She has worked at Pathways under the STAY Process program in Orange County from 2016-2019 serving transitional aged youths who are struggling with severe mental illness and ran a trauma group.

Ker Yang currently work with high functioning adult clients who seem to “have it all” however, still feel like something is missing or individuals who are feeling “stuck” and lost. Some things to work on include setting boundaries, asserting self, low self-esteem, trauma, life transitions, experiencing grief, impostor syndrome especially those in the creative industry and feeling overwhelmed with their emotions. Together, any challenges will be overcome. Your life will be more full and you can move forward in life.

Ker Yang has advance training in emotion-focused therapy for couples and have completed the EFT Externship and the Core Skills Training. She is working towards certification in EFT and currently receiving EFT individual and group supervision. In addition, she has training in sex therapy. She sees couples who are struggling with emotional connection. The goal is to increase secure connection within your relationship.

The approach in session is collaborative which means sharing feedback and suggestions. Some sessions can be quite intense with big emotions and other times much lighter. What you can expect include empathy, asking evocative questions, reflecting and deepening emotions.


Message to clients

Healthy human relationships is one of the highest forms of love we can achieve. With your partner, best friend or parent next to you, anything is possible. It is an innate need to connect with other human beings in a healthy and accepting way in order to grow and flourish. However, life is not so perfect as it is filled with adversity, uncertainty and aloneness. How could you ever be expected to find your way in this scary world alone? Because we are all different with different needs and wants, there is no “perfect” roadmap on how to get where you need to be. I will help you navigate this scary world and find more love in whatever form that may be. Trust me, it will be a journey of a lifetime filled with fear, pain and joy. You will feel alive!

I will teach you to have more self-compassion; celebrate small and big accomplishments, identify boundaries, identify wants/needs and heal from past trauma. With couples, I provide a safe space for each partner to communicate differently; be vulnerable and ask for their wants/needs to be met.

Growth can only take place when it is nurtured just like a plant needs to be watered and fed sunlight to grow. There is complete acceptance as my therapy sessions is designed for you to freely express your feelings without judgement. Are you ready to stop the suffering? If so, please feel free to schedule a 15-minute consultation.
