Lingguo Meng, B.S.
The acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) framework, combined with a multicultural lens, guide my approach to counseling. ACT is an active form of therapy, meaning that therapy will involve activities such as skill learning in addition to talking about problems and feelings. Based on this premise, in counseling sessions, we will team up to find out what matters to you, learn to reduce the impact of difficult thoughts and feelings, and form action plans together. My goal is to create a supportive and trusting environment where you can receive the right amount of challenges to help you grow. I'm interested in working with college students with an emphasis on students who identify as racial and/or sexual minorities. My clinical interests include depression, anxiety, substance use, eating disorders, phobias, and academic and career concerns.
I am particularly interested in multicultural orientation, which means I practice and advocate for cultural humility, comfort, and opportunities. I respect every client's unique aspects (gender, race, sexual identity, environmental, and historical contexts) and believe in building a counseling relationship with inclusivity and flexibility. Additionally, I utilize the unique perspective from my identity as a member of the international student and Asian populations in counseling sessions. I am fluent in Chinese (Mandarin) and enjoy supporting clients with various cultural backgrounds.
