Tuyen Tran, MSW
Supervisee in Social Work
Sometimes mental health issues are a difficult subject to discuss with loved ones, especially if there are cultural barriers. As an Asian American I experienced the phenomenon of feeling like I had two or more separate identities and felt like there was no one who could understand. As a young immigrant, it was difficult navigating who I should be for the day, how I should behave, what I should wear, etc. to please both my family and friends. I often felt like an outsider as I questioned “who am I?” While there are many cultural barriers we must face with mental health, you don’t have to face them alone! If you have issues with cultural identification, family communication, children’s mental health, (e.g. autism, depression, anxiety, and/or behavioral concern), parenting, or child development, I will be able to help you navigate these problems. I also assist with parenting a biracial family, sexuality issues, and diversity issues.
My personal and professional experiences with individuals of various cultures, backgrounds, communication styles, and behaviors have taught me how to interact and respond to each person differently to fit their needs. Whether you need to heal, process, find solutions or vent, I am here to assist you! With 5 years of experience, my area of expertise is assisting children (ages 4+), teens, and young adults, navigating their cultural identification, mental health and/or understanding appropriate behaviors.
