LAURA BAI, ASSOCIATE MFT

I believe we all have the innate wisdom and resilience to heal, learn, grow, and thrive. Therapy is a collaborative process that invites us to access our existing inner resources, release habits that no longer serve us, and form new ways of being in pursuit of the life we want to create. My approach is to work with each person holistically in this endeavor, recognizing that we are an integration of the mind, body, and spirit situated within cultural and systemic forces. Bringing empathy and curiosity to the therapeutic process, I draw on various modalities to meet each person’s individual needs, including mindfulness, somatic, relational, transpersonal, and trauma-informed approaches. I recognize and honor the complex intersection of identities that shape our experience, and welcome people across race, ethnicity, culture, gender, sexuality, class, spiritual orientation, etc. I am fluent in English and Mandarin Chinese, and conversational in Brazilian Portuguese.
