Multiculturalism &
Social-Cultural Therapy

Erjing believes in approaching all presenting concerns from a multicultural and social justice framework, with curiosity and compassion. 

Therapy is about looking inwards. It's also a process of recognizing what has happened to you in the context of society and empowering changes that heal. 

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Generalized Anxiety Disorder and related disorders

Erjing received her clinical training from McLean Hospital, a psychiatric affiliate of Harvard Medical School. There, Erjing is trained in Exposure and Response Prevention therapy (ERP) to treat Obsessive-Compulsion Disorder and related disorders. Erjing also works at Rogers Behavioral Health as an adult mental health therapist for OCD/Anxiety and Depression.

Erjing enjoys working with all populations whose families originate in East Asia, South Asia, Western Asia, and Southeast Asia. 

Depending on your racial identity and cultural stories, each of you has your own stories and struggles while navigating your way of being in the world. Being rooted in multicultural counseling and intersectionalities, Erjing is passionate about supporting the overall wellness of this community.

Erjing offers different therapy lengths: ​

Brief-term Therapy (3-6 sessions),  Middle-term Therapy (12-24 sessions), and Long-Term Therapy.

What is brief-term Therapy? 

Brief-term therapy is characterized by its focused and time-limited nature, often focusing on addressing immediate and specific problems and providing practical short-term solutions within a concise timeframe. Brief-term therapy with Erjing can take several forms: 1) the therapist and client might collaborate closely to identify the immediate challenge, develop strategies for coping or problem-solving, and work towards tangible outcomes; 2) the therapist might provide an assessment, recommendations, and/or referrals for further work, and 3) the client might utilize brief-term Therapy to gain a feel for therapy.

Brief-term therapy usually does not involve getting to the core of the challenges.

What is Middle-term Therapy? 

Therapy sessions ranging from 12 to 24 typically fall into the category of middle-term therapy. This intermediate length allows for a more in-depth exploration and work on a specific issue. Some examples of this specific issue might include a single life transition, a single case of trauma, or relationship challenges. 


What is Long-Term Therapy?

Long-term therapy involves an extended and ongoing therapeutic relationship between a client and a therapist. Unlike brief or middle-term therapy, long-term therapy continues for an extended period, often spanning months to years. This form of therapy allows for a comprehensive exploration of deep-seated issues, patterns, and complexities in an individual's life. It also allows individuals to work through complex issues at their own pace. The therapeutic relationship becomes a supportive and transformative space for personal growth and lasting change.
