More about Hang Diem-Huynh

Individuals have the unique ability to make meaning from their lived experiences. I am honoured to be able to travel with clients on their journey to self-discovery and personal growth. I believe that clients have innate strengths and resilience that enable them to make meaning out of life’s challenges. I am empathetic, genuine, and caring. On a fundamental level, I strive to build the therapeutic relationship based on empathy, acceptance, and trust. This safe base enables clients to explore and implement desired changes in their lives.

I have experience with crisis intervention, suicide risk assessments, and domestic violence risk assessments through the 24/7 CMHA Distress Line. I have a genuine curiosity of people and a strong interest in making meaningful human connections to foster self-acceptance and healing. My therapeutic interests include Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Mindfulness Based Therapy, Existential Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, and Client-Centered Therapy.
