Under Clinical Supervision

Mrs. Hsiao-Chu Sandra Huang, Associate Professional Clinical Counselor, 7820 is practicing under the supervision of Aaron Quiroz (California, LMFT, 113915) at Modern Life Solutions, Inc.

Please, note: A clinician listed as being “clinically supervised” is completing clinical hours toward their licensure. They have one or more fully licensed clinical supervisors that often have special training to become supervisors. They consult with their supervisor(s) on all of their cases, which means that, when working with them, you are getting the time and expertise of multiple therapists in your treatment.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

My approach is holistic, integrative, and culturally sensitive. I tailor therapy to address your specific needs, drawing from a range of modalities like ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy), Narrative therapy, Gestalt therapy, Mindfulness-based approach and embracing the mind-body-spirit connection. However, I place more emphasis on building a safe and trusting relationship over utilizing therapy techniques. I believe the success and progress of therapy are determined by our collaborative work.

How do you determine therapy goals with clients? What does that process look like?

We will determine your therapy goals together as a team. We'll talk about your current life challenges, your relationship with others, your aspirations, your values, and what a meaningful life looks like to you. The goal should be flexible, but in the meantime, practical and achievable.

What does success look like in therapy? How will a client know that they are making progress?

One person's progress can look very different from another person's. Often times, we would want our problems to "go away" or to "reduce" the negative feeling we are experiencing. However, I don't consider that as a success. My mission as a therapist is to help you become more self-aware, empower you to build resilience and find the inner strength you already own. Symptom reduction or feeling better are just byproduct. For me, my definition of true success in therapy is when you recognize that you have the free will to make different life choice and handle unpleasant experiences differently.
