Wellness through the Winter Woes
VNC Therapy | New York
Veronica N. Chin Hing-Michaluk, LMHC
Cultivating a diverse healing practice in the city that never sleeps
VNC Therapy New York is a private psychotherapy and coaching practice that affirms and empowers historically marginalized communities; placing emphasis on fostering healing spaces for BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ identities.
I bring a unique clinical lens into therapy- one that is rooted in a queer, sex-positive, multicultural identity. That means you can feel comfortable bringing all of you to session without having to worry about compartmentalizing aspects of who you are. You can expect a therapist who has the capacity to hold multiple truths, respect your beliefs, and challenge your negative patterns of behavior in a supportive way that facilitates lasting, positive change. There is no quick fix here, and our sessions will often be weaving through the tapestry of your life at a pace that feels comfortable to you.
The session fee is $300 per therapeutic hour, and our sessions may include:
exploring multicultural identity, ethical non-monogamy, kink and BDSM, asexuality, online dating, performance anxiety, holistic wellness, attachment styles
managing trauma responses, life transitions, low self-esteem, NYC-living, pandemic-related stress
processing relationships with mind-altering substances, complex trauma, family dysfunction, attachment issues, privilege & prejudice
moving through guilt and shame, loneliness, fear of failure or inadequacy, grief and loss
