Shuyang Liu, Clinical Intern

Pronouns: she/her

I am a bicultural and a bilingual immigrant therapist with a passion for supporting and empowering people of color, LGBTQIA+ individuals, and other marginalized groups. My personal and professional goals include disrupting oppression and creating an equitable and safe world for all.


I work to support my clients to connect, or reconnect, with their body and authentic selves. I believe that through counseling, you have the power to heal yourself and I'm honored to support you in that process.

I am fluent in Mandarin and English, intermediate level in Japanese and German and offer bilingual counseling services.

My approach...

My approach to therapy is integrated and unique to each individual client and reflective of your own development, goals and values. I value establishing a therapeutic relationship that’s based on trust, safety and acceptance.


I believe that the systems we are a part of, whether they be our personal relationships or larger social and cultural structures, deeply impact us, and I am committed to incorporating the intersectional identities of each client into therapeutic processing.


My approach to therapy often utilizes an internalized oppression model, strength-based multicultural therapy, and principles from feminist therapy. I start with a holistic, humanistic approach that prioritizes every client’s lived experience. For this, I draw from the work of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), art therapy, and existential therapy. I also incorporate mindfulness techniques and somatic experiencing into my practice, and view the way our mind and body operates with a trauma-informed lens.

Professional training & memberships...

I am a masters level student at Northwestern University in the Clinical Mental Health Counseling program. Prior to my current education, I received my bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Washington University in St.Louis.
