Relationship, Sex & Art Therapist
Registered Associate Marriage & Family Therapist #126562
“Art is a universal language and I use it in combination with talk therapy to promote freedom in expression, understanding, coping, and increasing self-awareness for even the most challenging of issues.”
After graduating from Beijing University of Technology in Marketing and Management, Chao established a successful career in financial planning. Time after time, she listened to and witnessed her clients’ emotional struggles and found that reaching their financial goals did not bring them the happiness they had longed for. Therefore, she made a courageous decision to journey from the other side of the globe to California to look for meaningful ways to support her clients and others.
Chao found herself drawn to art therapy and psychology. She received her Master of Arts degree in Marital and Family Therapy with Specialized Training in Art Therapy from Loyola Marymount University. Chao has worked with children, youths, adults, and families to find their personal strengths and develop better relationships. Her clients and mentors describe her as a trustworthy, attentive, and authentic person.
At Togetherness Therapy, Chao practices art, sex, and relationship therapy. She is skillful and sensitive about creating a safe space tailored for each client to explore their emotional needs, identify strengths, and overcome challenges. Chao works collaboratively with her clients and focuses on issues related to learning difficulties, social/parenting skills, intimate relationship issues, sexual desire discrepancies, sexual identity/orientation, sexual trauma, and cross-cultural challenges. Chao offers treatment in art therapy combined with talk therapy to promote freedom in expression, self-awareness, and coping strategies.
