As an Asian-American person, when was the first time you saw yourself on US-based television?⁠

How do you think seeing yourself represented on the screen impacted your self-image?⁠

How did your family talk about mental wellness? Pathology? And feelings? What were the norms? We want to know. AAPI communities have a rich history of healing but there is also some concerns regarding access to mental health care: 7% of AAPI folx seek mental health care (National Survey kb Drug use and Health, 2019). Only about 50% AAPI folx diagnosed with major depression receive treatment. Let’s create more language about this.

- Tomorrow Night - ⁠
Hook up apps be like: "A place where no one knows or cares to know your name...or feelings." ⁠

Let's talk about it. ⁠

Mango Tree Counseling & Consulting is hosting a group along with @waygayphilly focusing on the challenges of toxic masculinity in hook up culture among gay, bi, queer men. Anyone who identifies as a man in the LGBTQ+ community who struggles with this is welcomed.⁠

I am a National Certified Counselor and am receiving training in Ecosystemic Structural Family Therapy (ESFT). I received my Master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Southern New Hampshire University. I am committed to an inclusive, person-centered, culturally affirming, and strengths-based approach to clinical practice. Currently I work in community behavioral health with children, teens, and families—many of whom have survived significant traumas. As such I focus not on asking, “What is wrong?” but on “What has happened?” ⁠

I am a daughter of Chinese immigrants, and much of what I’ve learned about our family’s history and experiences, about our culture’s traditions and values, were passed down through narrative. This instilled in me a natural curiosity in others’ stories. I believe our past and present narratives intersect and evolve, and through this story-creating and story-telling process, we can find ways to thrive and to identify. I would be honored to listen to your story, to accompany you on your journey toward growth, healing, and wellness.⁠

"I am a Licensed Social Worker in West Philadelphia. My therapeutic approach is relational and psychodynamic/psychoanalytic and I have additional training in Harm Reduction Psychotherapy. As a former academic, my clinical thinking is heavily influenced by queer theory, feminism and social & critical therory more generally. My writing on topics including sexuality, sex, identity, activism, HIV/AIDS and film/media can be found in a number of peer reviewed journals. My clinical experience is wide ranging but I have a special familiarity working with issues surrounding sexual and gender identity, sex, life transitions and substance use, particularly with those for whom conventional recovery models (i.e. 12 step fellowships) are not a good fit."⁠
