Message from Sharon Hou

Hi!  My name is Sharon Hou. I am thrilled and honored to join the wonderful team of Dr. Riichiro Miwa Psychological Services as a registered Associate Marriage and Family Therapist!

I earned my M.A. Degree in Clinical Psychology with a specialization in Marriage and Family Therapy from Azusa Pacific University.  Before my professional psychology training, I also received a Master’s degree in Theology, as well as a graduate program in Education.  I have many years of experience in teaching and assisting people dealing with their academic, emotional, psychological, relational and spiritual struggles.

It has always been my passion and practice to guide people to resolve conflicts in their relationships and marriages.  In addition, my education and training have equipped me to treat peoples mental illnesses. I am here to accompany you to work through pain, loneliness, trauma, and loss.  My experience enables me to help women gain comfort and peace after suffering from miscarriages, abortions, and struggles with infertility.  I find great joy when my clients experience emotional healing, develop confidence, and regain hope and vitality.

Moreover, I am specialized in diversity related issues as well. First, I am fluent in both English and Mandarin Chinese (See 中文網頁).  As someone who grew up in a bicultural background, I am capable of providing unique and helpful insights in dealing with problems caused by multi-cultural/inter-generational settings.  Furthermore, I desire to provide support for individuals, couples, and families of LGBTQ community who experience difficulties in finding congruence and acceptance of their sexuality within society and their wider family settings.

Lastly, I offer spiritual counseling and assistance for people encountering religious or spiritual struggles or crisis.  I treat clients of all ages including teens, young adults, adults, and the elderly, whether individuals, couples, or families.

I look forward to hearing from you and to answer any question you may have.
