Dixie Hu, Ph.D.
If you’re reading this, I congratulate you on your courage and determination to seek help.
Authenticity, self-alliance, and curious exploration are the core themes of my therapy. I view
well-being holistically from a biopsychosocial-spiritual lens, i.e. your early life upbringing,
biology, social relationships, stressful life events, demographics, conscious and subconscious
thought patterns, emotional skills, and society all influence your mental health. In practice, I
blend empirically supported treatments with energy / spiritual work and social justice informed
by 10 years of training and practice. My job and passion are to unconditionally accept you as we
work together to build your self-awareness, self-empowerment, and healing.
My style of therapy offers not only listening, but also proactive guidance, skills, challenges to
explore or experiment, and above all learning about you and your patterns. I use a range of
interventions that are tailored to your presentation and needs (e.g., manualized treatments in
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Prolonged Exposure; Exposure and Response Prevention;
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy principles; mindfulness principles, emotional energy
techniques; inner child, shadow, or parts work; guided imagery meditation, EFT tapping, vagus
nerve stimulation exercises, and (if requested) spiritual card reading). I work on trauma / PTSD,
emotion regulation, depression, anxiety, ADHD, OCD, grief, relationship / boundary issues,
health behavior change, stress management, and self-development.
