Dr. Leanh Nguyen

Dr. Leanh Nguyen is a clinical psychologist trained in psychoanalysis. For over 20 years she has focused her studies and work on helping people who struggle with traumatic loss, difficult life transitions, forced displacement, and cultural-political conflicts.

As a refugee of Communism who escaped war-torn Vietnam, Leanh Nguyen brings a unique understanding to her clients struggling with similar experiences.

In the past five years, Leanh Nguyen has shifted her practice away from relieving people of pathological symptoms to facilitating growth and building lives through life coaching.

Dr. Leanh Nguyen Profile Picture
“I bring to my work all that this range of life experiences has taught me. I bring to it a multi-cultural, multi-lingual sensibility. I bring to it the perspective of one who stands outside, who has witnessed devastations and known unspeakable loss, who understands that there exists no borders or special opportunities in the domain of human suffering.”
