Welcome! My name is Christine Chiu and I’m a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist offering counseling and psychotherapy in San Francisco. My vision is to support and encourage individuals and families toward emotional health and restoration. My approach to healing is integrative, depending on the clients needs. I value a culturally-sensitive approach to counseling, and will intentionally consider one’s background, faith, and experiences when working with individuals and families. My experience and training draw from various approaches including: Psychodynamic therapy, Cognitive Behavioral therapy and Gospel-Centered counseling. I especially enjoy integrating one’s spiritual journey into the therapy process if this is of particular interest to the client.
Since 2007, I’ve been working in private practice specializing in counseling adults and adolescents, covering various concerns including: Abuse & Trauma, Anxiety, Depression, Identity Formation, Life Transitions, Relationship Issues, and Spiritual & Emotional Health. Prior to pursuing therapy, I spent five years working in Human Resources/ Employee Relations and completed my Certificate in HR Management, expanding my career counseling and coaching skills.
In addition to therapy, I’ve had the privilege to teach courses on Basic Counseling and Emotional Health in the Bay Area and in China. Our communities are foundational in the healing journey and it is important for all of us to be effective and compassionate healers and advocates of emotional health. For a list of my workshops and presentations, please view my Curriculum Vitae.
If you have any questions or would like a free phone consultation, please feel free to email or call me. I look forward to speaking with you.
Christine Chiu, M.A., MFT
