Hello and Welcome! I’m Mimi Tran, a compassionate psychotherapist based in New York. In my practice, I specialize in two key areas:

For children, I integrate Attachment Theory and Polyvagal Theory to foster connections, co-regulation, and a deep understanding between parents and children. By nurturing a strong foundation of trust and security within the parent-child relationship, we address behavior issues at home and school. This approach promotes harmony within the family dynamic and school environment, and meaningful relationships like friendships and sibling connections. Additionally, I incorporate movement, play, and storytelling into our sessions to engage children and facilitate their emotional expression and regulation.

For adults grappling with anxiety, depression, complex family dynamics, and unresolved childhood attachment issues, I draw upon Attachment Theory, Internal Family System (IFS), and Mindfulness to foster healing and growth. Traumatic events can leave us feeling stuck in the past and anxious about the future. My approach is rooted in understanding human complexities across developmental stages, providing warm and compassionate support to welcome all parts of you in our sessions.

I earned my MSW from Hunter College School of Social Work, graduating with honors from a trauma-focused program developed by the National Child Traumatic Stress Network (NCTSN). My training includes Child Parent Psychotherapy (CPP), TheraPlay, Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy (DDP), Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), and Sensory Motor Arousal Regulation Treatment (SMART). I integrate other evidence-based practices such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Internal Family Systems (IFS), and Mindfulness.

Born and raised in Vietnam, I am bilingual in English and Vietnamese. As a long-time resident of New York City, I am committed to providing therapeutic services to clients from diverse cultures and ethnic backgrounds. Before embarking on my journey as a therapist, I had a career in engineering and I continue to apply my scientific background in delivering evidence-based practices. I’m a mother of an active toddler and my personal experiences of motherhood continually inform and enhance my understanding of familial dynamics and individual needs in my practice.
