Whilst most people are familiar with the idea of receiving therapy from psychologists, not many have come across a marital and family therapist. Research has shown that Marital and Family Therapy is the most effective field in psychology that has proven to assist couples and families to restore and strengthen relationships or relational issues. Unfortunately, the title Marital and Family Therapy may be confusing to some people looking for individual therapy. Many people assume marital and family therapists only work with couples or families. However, marital and family therapy has been proven to be very effective in assisting individuals dealing with depression, anxiety or other issues that are normally categorized as personal problems but take roots in interpersonal issues.

Personal Note

“I have become aware of the privileges I have as an able and educated female for a while now. However, the insight has grown clearer and stronger since I moved to Saigon in late 2016. In my first week of being here, my brother took a chance to draw my attention to a truck collecting trash at the bottom of his apartment building. As I looked closer, I noticed two people sorting out trash with bare hands and feet. It was raining. We were living in a comfortable apartment in district 2, disconnected from the people 11 stories below whose livelihood was dependent on our trash. I believe we do not need to go too far to help the vulnerable and the voiceless. They are in our neighborhood, in our company, and within our family and friends circle.”
