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.
