About Me

Hi! I'm Uyen Kha

Associate Marriage and Family Therapist

Before I chose to become a therapist, I was a client and it was through being a client that I realized how helpful therapy was which ignited my passion to quit my previous career to pursue a Master's in Psychology.

Therapy has helped me sort through many questions that I had being a second-generation Asian American, and it has helped me to honor the values my parents have instilled in me while also nurturing my own values separate from them. It has also helped me build stronger relationships with others, with myself, and cultivate a deeper sense of purpose. It would be an honor for me to help others as well the same way therapy has helped me.

My background experience

  • Graduated from Brandman University (Now known as UMASS) with an MA in Psychology with an Emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy

  • Worked in higher levels of care, including PHP and IOP, at a dual-diagnosis mental health treatment center

  • Worked at a non-profit community-based organization that provided services to the LGBTQ population which serviced individuals of different cultures, ages, economic backgrounds, and ethnicity

Who/what do I specialize in working with?

I specialize in helping adults who may be experiencing issues related to their cultural identity or may be experiencing intergenerational trauma. I enjoy helping people explore how their childhoods may have impacted who they are today, and have a special interest in working with clients who come from immigrant families.

I also find interest in working with clients who struggle with anxiety and negative thinking. Life is already tough, and having that negative voice behind every action you take can make it even tougher. I believe that our thoughts impact our behaviors and feelings which is why I aim to evaluate how we can reframe our thoughts so that we can better manage our anxiety.

I take a compassion-based approach that is collaborative and client-focused. I am also LGBTQIA+ affirmative and culturally sensitive.

What do I do when I’m not doing therapy?

I enjoy cooking new foods and trying out new foods outside of the home. I also enjoy going to the gym, hanging out with friends, and playing games. Finally, I also spend the most time with my two cats (Boba) and (Bella) which you will see from time to time on the screen.

Taking the first step

It's not easy taking the time to look for a therapist to only find that they can't help you with your issues, that's why we encourage prospective clients to schedule a free 15-minute consultation.

I want you to know I am here to support you on your journey wherever you are.

You can book a time to chat with me below. I can’t wait to start working with you.
