My name is Christine Chiu and I’m a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist. Since 2007, I have worked in private practice, serving the SF & Bay Area communities. My current office is in the Jack London Square area of Oakland, CA.
My specialties include: Abuse & Trauma, Anxiety, Depression, Identity Formation, Life Transitions, Relationship Issues, and Spiritual Health. Prior to pursuing therapy, I spent five years working in Human Resources and Employee Relations.
My vision is to support, educate, and encourage individuals and families toward emotional health and restoration. My approach to healing is integrative, depending on the clients needs. I value a culturally-sensitive approach to counseling, and will intentionally consider one’s background, faith, and experiences when working with individuals and families.
I have experience and training in: Psychodynamic therapy, Cognitive Behavioral therapy, Dialectical Behavioral therapy, Acceptance and Commitment therapy, Trauma-Informed therapy, and Gospel-Centered counseling. I especially enjoy integrating one’s spiritual journey into the therapy process if this is of particular interest to the client.
In addition to therapy, I’ve had the privilege to teach courses on Basic Counseling and Emotional Health in the Bay Area and in China. Our communities are foundational in the healing journey and it is important for all of us to be compassionate healers and advocates of emotional health.

Thank you for stopping by!
