"Yumin is hardworking, caring, empathic, and genuine as a therapist. She actively listens to client’s problems without passing any judgment, and is able to be emotionally attuned to client’s needs and feelings. She is also very patient and supportive as she allows clients to work through their problems at their own pace. With her interning experience with the Butterflies program, she’s worked with families of different backgrounds. She treats each and every client she’s met with respect, truly valuing their individuality and uniqueness as a person, which I believe is a very precious quality as a therapist."- Jennifer Shih, LMSW • June 2018
"I would highly recommend Yumin Tan as a therapist. She is a smart, amiable and caring individual. She has extensive experience working with Chinese immigrants and young people. She is a person of great sensitivity, compassion and concern for people."- Dorothy Johnson-Laird, Social Services Manager • June 2018
Yumin was thoughtful, insightful, and willing to work with me at my own pace. She let me set the goals/objectives for the each session and our overall time together. I never felt rushed into tackling something I wasn't ready for, and she made me feel comfortable in her office (and online)."
