Justin King Hang Leung

Clinical Psychologist

I have over a decade of clinical experience in which I constantly strive to better understand and assist people from all walks of life (e.g., from those struggling with homelessness, hospitalizations, or imprisonments, to humble hard workers, ambitious businessmen, passionate activists, unconventional artists, and numerous others who do not fit stereotypical categorizations).

Regular engagement with diverse individuals whose psychologies and experienced difficulties are often intricately different-yet-similar vs. similar-yet-different have trained me to discern when I should generalize from comparable cases and stock theories vs. need to highlight the nuances and tailor therapy accordingly.

The focus of people’s therapy varies. Some people benefit most from “re-conditioning” automated responses and mental processes. Others benefit more from learning how to better identify and work around cognitive biases. Still others need assistance to build the ego-strength required to acknowledge and address (rather than deny or distort) unpleasant aspects of reality, establish balanced values, find purpose and drive, nurture a realistically positive and authentic sense-of-self, develop mature relational styles, work through psychologically scarring trauma, make sense of seemingly incongruous and otherwise perplexing aspects of oneself and/or the world, and many, many more…

People have such phenomenally diversified psychologies and experienced challenges. I am grateful for being given a chance to help, and to learn about all the psychological variabilities and complexities from those I try to help. In many ways, psychotherapy is a mutually rewarding endeavor.

Other Notes
