Christine Mok-Lammé, Ph.D.
Licensed Clinical Psychologist
Before going back to school for a doctoral degree in clinical psychology, I was a teacher in Hong Kong, an Executive Director in a non-profit agency in Los Angeles and in another agency in Western Colorado. These life experiences enriched my life, helped me learn about psychology in the midst of working with many diverse populations in different contexts.
At Sojourners Psychological Services, I want to provide a safe space for you to explore various issues that arise in your life journey. These issues can range from life adjustment challenges to serious mental illness. I have experience working with traumas, depression, anxiety, relationship issues (including cross-cultural relationships), cultural concerns, parenting, and personal growth.
My primary orientation in psychotherapy is contemporary psychodynamic theory. I believe this theory offers me the depth of understanding a person's psychology. It provides me ways to understand how primary relationships impact a person's development and gives me tools to help others explore the underlying factors of various challenges.
While my understanding of psychology is built upon psychodynamic theory, I utilize a variety of treatment approaches to meet the unique needs of each individual. Often times, individuals come to therapy in search of relief from difficult emotions and/or symptoms from mental health disorders. Techniques from various approaches can be very effective and helpful. These approaches include, but are not limited to, cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness, EMDR, motivational interviewing, and trauma informed care. I can conduct psychotherapy in English, Cantonese, and Mandarin.
I have experiences with different age groups with a wide range of presentations. Currently, I focus on working with adults with the following challenges:
Cross cultural relationships
Trauma and Abuse
