Meet Yaying Ma, our new associate therapist!

We are pleased to announce that a passionate therapist, Yaying Ma, has joined our practice!

From Yaying:


I have been passionate about psychology since I was in high school. In 2019, I came to NYC to pursue advanced training in mental health counseling at Fordham University.


During my previous work, I provided counseling to diverse immigrant individuals and their families in Queens, NY. By working with them, I gained a deeper understanding of the impact of the cultural differences, and how our past makes us become the person we are today. As an international student, I have experienced the struggles and difficulties of adopting a new culture myself. I am aware of how this transition period could be exciting yet challenging.


Seeking help is not easy, as you are reading this, you already took the first and the bravest step. I believe in the healing power that comes from a genuine connection. Together, we can co-create a space for you to explore, feel and heal at your own pace.


I hope I can be a bridge to help you connect your different inner parts, and I am willing to stand by you with all my heart, to be your support, ally, and witness through your journey.


人的一生是一场漫长的旅途。在旅途中,每个人都会背上属于自己不同的“包袱”。这些“包袱”或许来自于当时的外界环境,例如学习、职场等的压力;或许来自于亲密关系,例如与父母、朋友、恋人等相处产生的情绪困扰;又或许是自我探索和成长中的迷茫,困惑和无助……


随着旅途的行进,“包袱”越来越重,负重的你也走得越来越辛苦。 在看似“只是简单的聊天”的背后,心理咨询其实蕴含着巨大的能量。每个人所有的情绪、想法,以及正在遭受的痛苦等需要被看到和理解,然后才能找到自己独有的方法“减重“,继续向前。


我相信,真诚的咨询关系是真正疗愈的基础。我会尽我所能地为你创造一个安全、温暖和私密的空间,让你能在这个空间里以自己最舒适的节奏来重新连接和理解内心的自我,汲取能量,做出自己真正想要的改变。我愿意成为帮助你连接内心真正自我的一座桥梁,成为你人生一段旅途中的见证人。
