Huiyan holds a M.A in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from George Washington University and B.S in Applied Psychology. She has experience working with clients experiencing depression, anxiety, trauma, suicidality, family conflict, and other life stressors.
Prior to joining Granato, Huiyan worked in a range of settings including a crisis stabilization unit and inpatient, which equip her with the ability to work with age groups (5-87) and diverse cultural backgrounds (different ethnicities, national origins and sexual orientations).
It is Huiyan’s theory that there is no single approach that works for every individual, so that she uses person-centered as a foundation and apply different techniques in practice, such as CBT, DBT, mindfulness, psychodynamic, solution focused, art and play in sessions. She helps clients to develop skills, navigate life challenges, explore self-perceptions, and improve mental well-beings.
