Uyen Dinh, LCSWA
Hello, My name is Uyen Dinh. I earned my Bachelor of Social Work and a Master of Social Work from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.
A great joy of mine is
sightseeing, visiting coffee shops, thrift/antique shops, museums, and trying different foods. I also love creating art. You can catch me crocheting, knitting, singing, or painting in my free time. If you see me driving, most likely, I am belting my heart out to a Broadway musical. I love moving my body, so I love being in nature, taking walks, doing yoga, and working out at the gym. Lastly, I am a nerd at heart, so I also enjoy spending my free time watching anime and superhero movies.
My therapeutic approach encourages personal growth and provides opportunities for clients to learn information and skills to help them find a more balanced, meaningful life. I believe that the clients are the true experts in their lives, so I work with my client to establish a treatment plan that is specific to their identified needs and goals. I believe there is no “one size fits all” form of therapy; however, my theoretical preferences are a combination of Person-Centered Therapy, Motivational Interviewing techniques, Mindfulness-based stress reduction, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Strengths Based Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Acceptance Commitment Therapy, and Narrative Therapy. I pull from each modality so that I can tailor therapy to your specific needs.
As a first-generation Asian American, I understand and have experienced mental health stigma. It is a passion of mine to normalize dialogue regarding mental health and dismantle stigmas associated with therapy. I am experienced in depression, anxiety, grief, trauma, cultural/racial identity concerns, LGBTQIA+, self-worth, life transition/stressors, and self-esteem.
I am committed to my clients providing a safe, non-judging, trusting, and warm environment where they can work toward healing or self-actualization. In an ever-changing and fast-moving society, it is difficult for many to be grounded in the present moment with their mind, body, and spirit. I am here to create space and hold time for you to be heard, supported, and learn more about the most crucial person in your life, yourself.
