Dr Chiang listens and provides constructive achievable goals. She provides a fresh new perspective to my anxieties and stressors. These have helped me cope better.

Simply amazing. I’ve grown so much since I started working with Dr Chiang. She listens to me and helps me by providing tools I need to grow.

Very compassionate, engaged, gentle. Very good at listening, and very, very patient. Nice person, kind, warm approach. Always has not only good therapeutic advice, but actual exercises that you can do related specifically to the hardships you are going through. Would recommend the most to hurt souls who need a compassionate listener to guide them through uncovering their pain and hurt to heal themselves. Validates trauma beautifully. Everybody's different, but for someone who's been through multiple therapists in the past, I have only the best things to say.

Dr. Sylvia helped me understand some thoughts I had were not healthy in the long run. I'm less anxious and am able to identify when I'm about to slip into that vicious cycle i often can't get out of. She's methodical, kind, and actively listens. She surprised me a few times when she asked to revisit something I said prior, or after I spoke at great length about certain things. While my previous therapist on betterhelp was helpful, she didn't help me understand how to recognize certain patterns or tendencies, and further my understanding of self. Any concerns I had before our first session were quickly washed away after said session. Thanks again Dr. Sylvia.
