Professional statement

Vesper Jingxuan Yang is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) based in both Pennsylvania and New Jersey. She received a Master degree in Social Work from the University of Pennsylvania, and has been practicing as a therapist since.

Vesper, bilingual in English and Mandarin, has worked in a variety of settings including inpatient and outpatient hospitals, community agencies, and welfare and human services. She particularly has experiences with immigrant and refugee populations as well as intimate partner violence victims and survivors.

Vesper specializes in trauma, anxiety, life transitions, and relationship challenges. Vesper takes a trauma-informed and holistic approach through a systematic lens. She integrates creative expression with talk-based therapies to meet the needs of each client and help them achieve their most authentic and expansive self. She approaches this work holistically with warmth, empathy, and ever developing curiosity.

On a more personal note, Vesper immigrated from China years ago, so she understands how scary and lonely transitions can be sometimes. Outside of work, She enjoys LEGO building, reading, postcrossing, and bullet journaling.


Message to clients

The desire to know and to be known is a normal human experience.

As a therapist, I am honored to be a part of the journey to help you connect with yourself as well as with others. I strive to collaboratively create a calm, relaxed, trauma-informed, and client-centered safe space through a systematic lens. I also hope this space allows healing to take place through each minute, each word, each glimmer of hope, and each moment of self-realization.

As an immigrant and an Asian-identified therapist, I am particularly sensitive to diversity in culture and self-identity, including with respect to race, gender and sexuality. I believe the importance of affirming the unique individual experience with cultural humility.

We usually find themselves connecting more easily and opening up more when we are a good match for each other. We feel better just being with someone who can listen and explore the past safely with. You are the expert on your own experiences. During our time together, we will work as allies to take sustainable, lasting, and meaningful steps toward a more fulfilling life. We will unpack emotions, trauma, and life challenges in a meaningful and manageable way to create change. We will explore together respectfully to acknowledge vulnerability, unearth patterns, attend complexity, and gain ownership of change to achieve the most authentic and expansive self.

I look forward to meeting you!
