Dr Vang is a skilled therapist. She is excellent at listening to You and not projecting what she thinks is the problem. She really embodies the concept of allowing you to become conscious of yourself to move you through therapy instead of jamming trendy strategies into play. I appreciate her insight and her vast knowledge of the mind.
