About Dr. Winnie Ng
I am a Licensed Psychologist (PSY33873) and a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT50329) in California. I hold a Doctoral Degree in Clinical Psychology from Azusa Pacific University and a Masters Degree in Clinical Psychology from Vanguard University of Southern California. With over 15 years of professional experience, I specialize in working with children, families, and individuals facing mental health challenges.
I completed my postdoctoral psychology fellowship training at two renowned hospitals in Southern California, City of Hope National Medical Center and Loma Linda Children’s Hospital. At City of Hope, I worked with a multidisciplinary team specializing in cancer patients’ comprehensive treatment, deepening my understanding of the psychological impact of illness. At Loma Linda Children’s Hospital, I provided psychological support to children and adolescents facing medical and emotional challenges. Additionally, I conducted psychological testing for children with cognitive, behavioral, or social functioning concerns.
My areas of specialization encompass pediatric care, psycho-oncology, perinatal loss, depression, anxiety, trauma, and crisis recovery. In therapy, I create a safe and nonjudgmental space for my clients, where they can gain valuable insights and embark on their journey of healing. I approach treatment with flexibility, tailoring it to the specific needs of each individual. My therapeutic style is characterized by empathy, compassion, gentleness, calmness, and engagement. I utilize reflective listening and employ open-ended questions to encourage my clients to delve into their deeper thoughts and emotions. By facilitating this exploration, I guide them towards a better understanding of themselves and their experiences. Throughout the therapeutic process, my clients gain clarity on the meaning of their lives and discover strategies to achieve overall well-being. I firmly believe in employing a strength-based approach, which involves acknowledging and building upon the positive aspects of my clients’ lives. By exploring their resources, talents, interests, and support systems, we can divert attention from negative influences and foster personal growth and transformation. My ultimate goal is to empower my clients, assisting them in harnessing their strengths and overcoming challenges, ultimately leading to positive change and personal growth.
In addition to therapy, I have presented parenting seminars and workshops for teenagers. I draw upon various theoretical orientations, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy, and Interpersonal Therapy. Being bi-cultural and fluent in English, Cantonese, and Mandarin, I am comfortable working with diverse individuals, fostering an inclusive and supportive environment.
