Professional statement

Tra Hoang is a psychotherapist based in New York City who has extensive training and experience in working with Asians and Asian Americans. She understands the unique challenges and pressures that come with striving for success in a cultural context that often emphasizes high achievement. Whether dealing with stress, anxiety, imposter syndrome, perfectionism, or family conflicts, Tra is committed to maintain a safe and supportive environment for each patient to explore their emotions and develop practical strategies for achieving greater well-being.

Tra's therapy approach is grounded in evidence-based practices and tailored to meet the unique needs of each individual patient. She utilizes a range of therapeutic techniques, including cognitive-behavioral therapy, psychodynamic therapy, and mindfulness-based therapy. She works with patients to identify patterns in their thoughts and behavior, and uses this insight to help them make positive changes in their lives. Tra believes that the key to successful therapy is building a strong and trusting relationship with each patient, and she strives to create a space without fear of criticism or shame where patients can feel free to explore the unknown.

With years of experience in the field of psychotherapy, Tra has a deep understanding of the complex nature of mental health concerns. She believes that mental health is a critical component of overall well-being and that therapy can be a powerful tool for personal growth and transformation. She is passionate about reducing the stigma surrounding mental illness in Asian American communities and promoting greater awareness of the importance of mental health.

Tra offers remote sessions for patients who prefer to meet virtually. This flexible scheduling allows patients to receive therapy from the comfort of their own homes or offices, without having to worry about travel time or logistics.

Message to clients

Before we begin our work together, I want to let you know that an important part of therapy is exploring your past experiences, relationships, and patterns of behavior to better understand how they are impacting your current thoughts and feelings. This can be a deeply transformative process, but it can also be challenging and uncomfortable at times. I want to reassure you that I am here to support you every step of the way, and that our work together will be collaborative, respectful, and non-judgmental.

I know that stepping into therapy can be scary, as it is quite an investment of effort, time and money. This is because real change takes time, and we will be delving into complex issues that have likely been present for a long time. However, the potential rewards are enormous. Through our work together, you will gain insight and understanding into yourself that will allow you to make positive changes in your life and relationships.
