About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and a certified Kundalini Yoga Instructor. My personal mission is to help clients manage stress in a healthy way, to offer tools to help connect the spiritual, mental and emotional bodies so you may improve your mental health & well-being and feel engaged with your own life’s purpose and passion.

My experience as a Clinical Social Worker and Crisis Counselor taught me how to remain calm in crisis and to engage my clients in a caring, thoughtful and supportive way. My focus is to draw on your unique strengths and interests. I believe in empowering and educating my clients so you feel confident in advocating for your own treatment and well-being. I draw on both my skills as a Clinical Social Worker and as a Yoga and Meditation Instructor to guide my clients to make healthier choices, break out of old patterns and develop healthy tools to cope with stress, anxiety, depression and overwhelm.

As part of the therapeutic process, we can focus solely on traditional therapeutic techniques like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, or incorporate yoga and/or meditation to help you on your wellness journey. I look forward to meeting you and supporting you on your journey.

I’ve tried therapy in the past and have been a bit of a skeptic as I’ve not found someone that I felt understood my concerns and aligned with my style. Tijen is amazing - she has a knack for understanding what I am saying and asking great questions that allow me to dig deeper. I always feel much better after spending some time with Tijen.

I had Tijen as my therapist for about 6 months and in that time i made a lot of progress with my struggles. It was so easy to open up to her. I benefitted greatly from talking with her.

Tijen is an amazing therapist and human! She brings such a light of hope into every session I have with her that I feel like anything is possible. I am beyond grateful to be able to have such a wonderful person to help me process and navigate life’s challenges and joys !

Words can’t begin to describe how incredible Tijen is. I was at the lowest point in my life when I first started counseling with her and she helped me in truly immeasurable ways. Session after session she gave me the tools and the map to find myself again. I truly am a changed person and haven’t felt this connected with myself probably EVER. She is impeccably wise and caring and her knowledge and insights are worth their weight in diamonds. Tijen is a gift to this world and we are all lucky to have her.

I feel comfortable telling her everything.
Her tone of voice really helps. I feel like that matters.

I have only recently started meeting with Tijen, but she has been a pleasure. We immediately started setting goals, and she's encouraged me to use the Journal feature. I feel motivated to work on myself through the goals, journal, and weekly sessions. I feel more involved than I have in previous therapy sessions (outside of BetterHelp). Thank you, Tijen!

I have only been working with Tijen for 2 weeks, but we have messaged a lot and I have already gained a lot of perspective on what it is I want to focus on and how to change my thinking when my anxiety is high. Looking forward to learning more about myself through all of this with Tijen's guidance.

We just are getting started but she always responds in a way to make me feel comfortable which i wasn’t thinking would happen for me in therapy.

After my first session, I feel at ease talking to my counselor.

Tijen Dyson has been a weekly light for me! She’s extremely insightful and has already had a lasting impact on my day-to-day. I’m very thankful to have been immediately matched with such a great person to help me through just life honestly...between an autoimmune disease diagnosis, anxiousness from time to time, and the COVID-19 crisis it helps to have someone to talk to and give really useful and profound insights and support.

Tijen Dyson is a really calm and caring person. You can tell that she puts a lot of thought and time into helping you. She never judges and is very down to earth about many topics. I feel incredibly comfortable talking with her more so than any counselor I've had before. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for someone to talk to and help them.

Work with me!
