About Nan Yang, Psy.D.

As we move through this shared journey called life, each of us may strive to create and understand the experiences that arise. Through each experience, feelings of happiness and sadness, anger and calmness, love and hatred, joy and grief can surface. Uncomfortable emotions may lead to feelings of anxiety, depression, and self-doubt causing us to question the decisions we make. Distress and doubt can often lead us away from our most authentic selves and desired ways of living. As each individual is on a different and unique journey, my goal as a therapist is to meet you wherever you are to help you discover your preferred life. I embody an inquisitive and non judgmental stance.
“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing, there is a field. I’ll meet you there.”- Rumi.

My Approach

As a psychologist, I fundamentally work from a humanistic/existential approach, however I also draw from many other approaches such as behavioral therapies, mindfulness based therapies, cognitive therapies and interpersonal therapies. I truly believe in tailoring therapy to each individual to help them achieve what they ultimately aspire to when they step into the therapeutic space. I believe that each and every human being has the innate capacity and ability to incite change and to create their own meaningful experience of life. As a therapist and human being, I strive to present with cultural humility, authenticity, empathy and unconditional positive regard to create a safe and grounded space for each individual.

Professional Background

I completed my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology (PsyD) at Pepperdine University Graduate School of Education and Psychology.

I have been fortunate to work with children, adolescents, young adults and adults from various cultural, ethnic, socio-economic, and spiritual backgrounds. I have experience conducting individual and group counseling as well as experience with initial, clinical, neuropsychological, and forensic evaluations/assessments in a variety of settings.

Prior to joining Madison Park Psychological Services, I have worked at Asian Americans for Community Involvement (AACI) where I worked with a variety of clients including immigrants, refugees and survivors of trauma. Other work settings have included a rehabilitation center with individuals with extensive medical traumas, UCLA Semel Adolescent Serious Mental Illness, UCLA Aftercare Research Program, and UCLA OCD intensive treatment program. My additional clinical experience includes community clinics, domestic violence agencies and applied behavioral analysis.

I have a specific interest in holistic health and complementary and alternative modalities and my research experience is focused on the practice of yoga and its impact on anxiety.
