About Me 
My name is Alison Huang and I am a psychotherapist in downtown Silver Spring. I provide counseling services for individual, couples, and family in a nonjudgmental way. My approach is holistic, solution-focused, and interactive. My clients usually describe me as warm, compassionate, and open-minded.
I am specialized in the treatment of:
Bipolar Disorder
Anxiety Disorder and OCD
Self-esteem enhancement
Communication skills training
Stress management
Anger management
Bridge cross-cultural communication
During the course of my work, I have become especially interested in eating disorder and trauma, so I have completed one year training program in strength-based approach to trauma recovery by the Institute for Advanced Psychotherapy Training and Education. I use CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) and mindfulness to help clients develop a better understanding to past experiences, increase ability to manage difficult emotions, and regain the power of resilience.
I also work regularly with clients dealing with:
Eating Disorder
Couples therapy
Domestic violence
Relationship/Family issues
Spiritual guidance: Exploring spiritual beliefs and the meaning of life
Why is our treatment unique?
I am committed to provide the best care to my clients: Apart from the various professional approaches, I am adept at integrating different techniques (such as music, art, Socratic Dialogues) to provide holistic treatment. I have competencies in an array of issues and have great experiences in working with clients from different cultural backgrounds.
Deliver treatment that is person-centered: I will provide an empathetic and supportive environment where you can express yourself with comfort and ease. That is to say, there is no judgment here. I am aware that everyone is an unique individual, and I will adjust my intervention to tailor your needs.
Meet clients where they are: You are encouraged to bring out any struggles or strong emotions here, but I also respect your personal space if you are not ready. I will always take care of your feelings and meet where you are, so there is no such thing that you "fail" the therapy. I fully believe in your inner wisdom. All you need to do is be honest with yourself and we will create a space for you to unfold your potential. Together, we will witness your pain, frustration, and other strong emotions, and help you to reclaim your true identity. 
What I believe
It is my belief that the building of a sound therapeutic alliance is the key to success of therapy. In the session, I am truly interested in hearing you out and I genuinely invite you to join this respectful and supportive relationship with me.

I am looking forward to connecting with you.
