It is not uncommon for Vietnamese parents who emigrated from Vietnam, watching their children grow up in the main culture, to experience family conflict due to cultural clash. Acculturation stress can cause severe damage to your relationship with your spouse, children, and other family members.
I understand the stress that a Vietnamese person and their partner of another race face in their dating relationship/marriage such as language barriers, dissimilar marriage expectations, change in relationship roles, and identity loss. I know how hard it can be for a Vietnamese family to assimilate in a new place, practice a new culture, and try to fit in different social groups.
Individuals who have relocated time after time in their life often experience trauma. Cultural clash, financial hardship, marital conflict, parenting stress, depression, anxiety are some of the issues I’ve treated in psychotherapy.
My goal is to help you and your family overcome life and relationship challenges, so you can regain self-confidence, marital satisfaction, and family togetherness. Take your first step now by reaching out to me for help.
Some of my areas of focus in offering couples and family therapy to the Vietnamese community are:
Adjustment anxiety and depression
Difficult life transitions
