What does a first session with you look like?

The first session, as with all Thriveworks therapists, will involve talking through your needs and goals for therapy — whether those involve managing depression, anxiety, relationship problems, or another mental health challenge. This will enable you to receive the very best care, as a personalized treatment plan will then be developed for subsequent sessions. Thriveworks helps people live happier, more fulfilling lives. Clients are guided and supported as they work through their unique mental health challenges – and, along the way, shown the life-changing power of therapy.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I offer a variety of counseling approaches including CBT / Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Family Systems. Growing up in multiple places in Asia, moving to the United States as an international student, and now an immigrant, Alice understands the unique issue and challenges of identity exploration for people who are in the process of transitioning.

What should we know about your experiences and background?

Tzu-Yu (Alice) Kan is a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC) in the state of Maryland and a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) in the state of New York. Alice has extensive experience working with culturally diverse clients on various mental health issues related to depression, anxiety, anger management, grief, trauma, hallucination, delusion, cultural identity, and relationships. She interned at a substance abuse program, where she assisted individuals in understanding their addiction, helped slowly reduce the use, and eventually helped maintain abstinence. After her internship, Alice joined a program assisting the severe mental illness population, specializing in serving minority groups and immigrants. Alice completed her Master of Education (MEd) and her Master of Arts (MA) in Mental Health Counseling at Teachers College, Columbia University. She is a trilingual therapist who speaks English, Mandarin and Cantonese fluently. Alice s approach in counseling is person-centered, strength-based, and goal-oriented. She believes that establishing trust and having a collaborative therapeutic relationship are both crucial in the therapy session. Clients know themselves the best and Alice believes that in order to assist them, they must explore their issues, discover their inner-self, and eventually self-actualize. Alice will serve as a map for you while you are lost in your journey. Do you feel stuck in your current life and don t know where to go? Do you feel overwhelmed with what is going on around you? Have you experienced loss, trauma, and constantly feel hopeless in life? Don t hesitate to seek out help. Alice will make sure to provide you with a safe, warm, and comfortable space to speak about your issues and support you in going through difficult times in your life.
