Liz Chang, LMFT
Founder / Supervisor / Therapist
*Not accepting new clients at this time.
To thrive while in the struggles of life is a challenge, and I'm here to say that your circumstances do not have the final say when it comes to the way you think, feel, act, and engage in relationships.
At Radiant MFT, my role as a therapist is to encourage and support you in facing those feelings; provide helpful strategies, information, and tools where relevant; and collaborate with you in discovering new ways for you to engage with yourself internally and in your relationships. With warmth, wellness, and wholeness at the core, we'll work together to better understand you and your history in order to shift the internal loops, relational dynamics, and maladaptive patterns that you feel stuck in.
My style of therapy draws from various modalities, including Narrative Therapy, Emotionally-Focused Therapy, Internal Family Systems Therapy, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy.
I look forward to working with you.
