My name is Letty Ye. I am a masters-level counselor currently pursuing my LPCMH at IPG. I have a multicultural background; I grew up in Shanghai and have spent considerable time in Japan. I moved to the U.S. after high school and completed my undergraduate degree in California and my graduate training at the University of Pennsylvania. I possess firsthand experience as an immigrant and an astute cultural awareness that helps me to serve clients from many diverse backgrounds. My clinical training and experience include working at a trauma center (Joseph J Peters Institute) in Philadelphia, where I provided individual and group therapy to clients of all ages. This included working with people dealing with complex trauma, traumatic grief and loss, substance use, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, and other co-occurring symptoms.
I hold the existential belief that it is through our exploration and pursuit of meaning that we can find purpose in our lives. It is this sense of direction and purpose that enriches our existence. My goal is to support my clients on their personal journey to overcome hurdles, and other obstacles, that get in the way of their fulfillment. I strive to empower them to seek their own direction, acknowledging and empathizing with their struggles along the way, while celebrating their progress and honoring their autonomy in shaping their path. Together, we will navigate the therapeutic process, unlocking possibilities and fostering growth towards a more fulfilling life.
