Hi! I’m Emily, aka Dr. Hu, aka that short Taiwanese woman who enjoys geeking out about Star Wars while creating a safe space for people to talk through their emotional struggles. I’m a clinical psychologist located in Los Angeles who is passionate about treating trauma, anxiety, depression, relationship struggles, grief, and addictions, among other things. I especially love working with people of color as well as LGBTQ+ folx. I also enjoy helping my clients explore cultural identity, the immigration experience, assimilation struggles, and family relationships.

If we sound like a good fit, head on over to my website to schedule a free 30-minute consultation. I’d love to connect with you!
