Philosophy of Care

Vivian Ng is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) in the state of Rhode Island with over 9 years of experience working with children, adults, and families in community- and school-based settings. She approaches her clients with an eagerness to listen and learn their stories. As her clients allow, she walks into their spaces of hopelessness and distress to sit with those feelings, and she navigates her clients to a place of measurable change. The goal is long-term empowerment. The approach is relational and collaborative.

Vivian completed her Bachelors of Arts in Psychology from Providence College and received her Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology from Assumption College. There is a vulnerability that comes with the seat of a client, and Vivian works to honor her client’s trust and confidence by providing strength-based counseling through techniques like cognitive behavioral therapy, solution-focused therapy, narrative therapy, coping skills training, and mindfulness techniques with adults. Additionally, Vivian utilizes affect-regulation strategies and play therapy with children, as well as parent-skills training and psycho-education with parents. She is also a Christian, and if clients are interested, welcomes the integration of faith and spirituality into the conversations.

Accommodating and attuned to both the clients’ and her own emotional world, Vivian aims to support her clients through navigating their thoughts and identifying their associated feelings and resulting choices. Her work is stage-appropriate, collaborative, and driven by best practices that move the client toward actualized healing.

Thriveworks Counseling Providence

Vivian Ng

★★★★★
Vivian provides a welcoming conversational space for exchange. She is able to listen with genuine care and when the time is right give feedback that is both empathetic and constructive. If I have to share a problem with her that might be difficult to share with even a close friend, I feel she is able to help coach me along with a patient reassurance that my thoughts and feelings will be considered without judgment. There may not always be a direct or immediate answer to what I’m working through but she is able to encourage healthy thought-habits and emotional strategies which help me to progress. I really appreciate her respectful frame of mind and down-to-earth personality, they make talking with her worthwhile.
