Charlene Chan, LCSW

“There are so many experiences in our lives where we may feel unheard, devalued, unconnected. Knowing that these experiences exist in various ways led me to want to be there for others, in guiding them to learn their self-worth, so that they know their feelings matter and their voices are heard.”

I have worked with a number of patients struggling with depression, anxiety and relational issues (ranging from parents to partners to friendships) along with some trauma.

I have extensive experience helping individuals, couples and families work through obstacles like:

  • Anxiety

  • Depression

  • Grief and Bereavement

  • Life Transitions

  • Loneliness

  • Parenting

  • Relationship Stress

  • Trauma

How can you tell if someone is benefiting from therapy?

Strange as this may sound, I think you’ll actually tell me! You know how you’re feeling better than anyone else, so I’ll probably look to you to let me know how you’ve been feeling or if you feel like certain aspects of our work were helpful to you.
