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.

 

My primary orientation in psychotherapy is contemporary psychodynamic theory. I believe that contemporary psychodynamic theory, especially object relations theory, offers me the depth of understanding a person's psychology. Specifically, it provides me ways to understand how primary relationships impact a person's development. It also provides me with tools to help others explore the underlying factors of problems manifested in their lives.

 

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, narrative therapy, motivational interviewing, and trauma informed care. I can conduct psychotherapy in English and Cantonese.

 

I have experiences with different age groups with a wide range of presentations. Currently, I focus on working with adults with the following challenges:

 

Anxiety

Chronic illness

Cross cultural relationships

Cultural issues

Depression

Employment-related problems

Grief/Loss

Identity issues

Life adjustment 

Parenting

Stress
