Professional statement

Tracy Chang is a licensed psychotherapist based in Los Angeles who specializes in working with individual adults navigating personal and professional existential challenges. Many of her clients identify as high achievers who appear successful on the outside, but often don't feel successful on the inside. They struggle with anxiety, having difficulty finding peace within themselves and their relationships. At times, they guilt and shame that they aren't living up to expectations, whether those expectations are their own, their family's, or their culture's. In addition, Tracy supports individuals who are grieving the death of a loved one, as well as those going through life changes and transitions move forward with intentionality and meaning.

Tracy’s therapy approach combines the goal-oriented approach of Solution-Focused Therapy with the meaning-based exploration of Existential Therapy with a focus on the present and the future. As a strengths-based therapist, Tracy blends clinical knowledge with practical wisdom to help clients expand their awareness, boldly reimagine the status quo, and live in alignment with their true self.

Tracy earned her BA in Psychology from Mount St. Mary's University and MA in Clinical Psychology from Pepperdine University. Tracy has been in practice for over 10 years working in both inpatient and outpatient settings to clients of diverse backgrounds and ages. In addition, she is a Clinical Supervisor who provides supervision to Associate therapists in California and private consultation to professionals and companies worldwide.

Tracy provides online sessions to clients throughout California.


Message to clients

It's difficult to find peace in a noisy world where you've been conditioned with messages about who you should be, what you should do and what you should own. It’s easy to compare yourself with others and question if you are doing enough and whether your life should be different.

I work with individuals who are seeking a more honest, deeper and meaningful understanding of themselves, their relationships and the world they live in. I will help you expand your awareness to create clarity about who you truly are so you can make empowered choices based on your values, instead of those driven by fear. Our work together focuses on your strengths and uses all symptoms as clues to help you create alignment within your personal and professional life. My clients come out of therapy feeling more at peace with who they are, having clarity in what they want and the renewed freedom to live an authentic life that isn't governed by what others think.

My therapy approach is holistic and is informed by clinical psychology, Western and Eastern philosophy, and cultural awareness and humility.

If you feel I could be a match for the type of support you are seeking, please contact me for a free 20-minute consultation. I look forward to meeting you.
