Yin Li

Licensed Marriage Family Therapist

My work is primarily with people of color and more specifically Asian, Asian Americans, and Pacific Islanders. I help my clients shed old patterns and experience new ways of BEING and RELATING that are more expansive and rewarding.

My Approach

My main orientation is culturally informed psychodynamic therapy. This means that in our work together, we will better understand how early and significant experiences created patterns of BEING and RELATING that are no longer helpful to you. Often times these patterns are unconscious and out of your awareness. When we shed light on them, you will have more choice in what to change and how to change. I hold that our family of origin AND our social, cultural, and historical context deeply shapes who we are, our strengths, and what we struggle with. I also draw from somatic and experiential orientations. I believe that when we connect insight with present moment experience, healing and change occurs. My style is supportive, collaborative, and direct.

My Background

I came to be a therapist through my own therapy and process. Prior to becoming a therapist, I worked in finance and high tech. I graduated from the California Institute of Integral Studies which is one of the leading counseling psychology graduate programs in the US, blending Western psychology and Eastern philosophy. My education and training was highly experiential which means I have done (and, continue to do) my own inner work which helps me be a more effective therapist. In addition to my work as a therapist, I want to help de-mystify and de-stigmatize therapy in Asian American Pacific Islander communities, so I started Theralane.
