Lorie Nguyen, ASW

Hi, I'm Lorie.

Entering therapy can be an overwhelming process and like any other relationship, you deserve to feel safe, heard, and respected. As First-Generation Vietnamese-American, I always strive to stay informed and provide culturally/competent care, attuning to the way culture, language, background, and systems of oppression/privilege shape and influence the way we view & navigate the world, both in and out of session. 

I earned my Bachelor of Arts in sociology from UC Santa Barbara and my Master of Social Work from USC Suzanne Dworak-Peck School of Social Work. My education and career have always focused on my passion for social racial justice and serving the needs of marginalized youth, individuals, families, and oppressed communities.

I have over 10 years of experience in a variety of settings and with diverse clients. I believe that therapy is a collaborative endeavor that requires honest care without judgment, and that I work alongside my clients in clarifying and supporting them to reach their goals. As a clinical social worker, I am warm, open, and encouraging. Using my experience, education, creativity, and my light-hearted sense of humor, I provide a compassionate and realistic approach to therapy. 

Lastly, I am a firm believer that change happens when we are given guidance to help draw on our strengths and elevate our unique qualities so that we can exist as our truest selves.

Thank you for trusting me in this process towards self-discovery! I’m thrilled for us to connect and partner!
