love your life, love it!

Thao Tran (Isabel) MBA, RTC, SEP ( in training)

I am a bilingual Asian relationship therapist (Asian EFT therapist) and a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner in training – advanced level. 

(In Vietnamese: Tôi là một nhà tham vấn tâm lý nói Tiếng Việt, chuyên ngành quan hệ và hôn nhân gia đình. Tôi cũng chuyên điều trị sang chấn tâm lý dùng liệu pháp Somatic Experiencing. Xin vui lòng liên hệ qua email: để đặt lịch hẹn và tìm hiểu thêm dịch vụ của tôi. )

I have supported multicultural families and individuals who struggle in settling, growing, and thriving.  I once struggled  in my own life and my own relationships. I found my passion is assisting people through changes, challenges to overcome the obstacles, find their values, achieve their goals, and find the purpose of their lives.

I have years of working with couples and individuals supporting them to de-escalate and take control of their negative cycles in their relationships. In my therapeutic space, I create safety for clients to unfold and find better strategies to cope with their trauma, triggers and learn new communication skills to discuss  any sensitive topics for better connections, secure bonds, and safe and happy relationships.  As a SEP in training, I have helped clients with trauma to better cope with depression, anxiety, anger and find safety in their bodies and their minds. 

I was in project management for almost 10 years helping people to ground, see things clearer,  overcome conflicts, improve communication, and express perspectives, emotions, needs and interests to negotiate and achieve the same goals. 

I’ve been practicing Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical behavioral Therapy (DBT), Narrative Therapy, Somatic Therapy, Solution Focus Therapy, and suicide intervention to support clients in the therapeutic counselling space. 

I have done Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT by Sue Johnson) – Externship and Core Skills and I have been using this modality together with another modalities (Gottman and Developmental Modality) to support clients in their relationships.
