Psychotherapy for Adults, Seniors and Couples 

Meet Yu-Shan Huang

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist 

A mental health professional offering therapeutic services in both English and Mandarin Chinese 

I'm a San Francisco based therapist who was born and raised in Taiwan. As a queer Asian therapist with a bi-cultural background, I value diversity and honor each individual's experiences. I am sensitive and skilled around cross-cultural, acculturation and immigration issues. 

I support clients in connecting with their feelings, authentic selves, and insights. My therapeutic style is compassionate, interactive and non-judgmental.

I am also a drama therapist, so depending on clients' readiness and interest, I may integrate embodied, interactive and experiential methods in an attuned and playful manner. It provides opportunities to express yourself in a variety of ways and gain different perspectives on issues

Initial Phone Consultation

Prior to therapy, I provide a free phone/zoom consultation to begin the process. In this phone call, we will discuss some of the reasons you are interested in therapy. Also, we will go over some details or answer any questions you might have about the therapy process. This is an opportunity to get to know each other and discuss what might be the best way to work with you.

Individual Therapy

I work with adults and seniors to discuss issues such as: 

  • depression, anxiety and other mood issues 

  • traumatic experiences like childhood, relational and sexual traumas

  • challenges of life transition like relationships, acculturations and identities

  • grief and loss 

  • self-esteem

  • personal growth/ development like cultivating a more balanced inner world

I am a humanistic and attachment-based therapist who works collaboratively with clients. In individual therapy, I provide a non-judgmental and empathetic space to support you in connecting with yourself (past, current and future) to shape new opportunity.


Couple Therapy 

I work with couples of all sexual orientations and gender identities in various stages of their relationships. Couples often come to me for issues of: 

  • navigating cultural/racial/ethnic difference within the relationship

  • communication difficulties 

  • life transition

  • pre-marital counseling 

  • grief and loss 

Couple therapy offers a safe space to re-visit your unmet needs and share your inner experience with your partner. In our work, we re-examine the blocks in the relationship and co-create a new way of relating to them.
