Vivian Ng, LMHC

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.

Kind, Approachable, but Also Challenges You to Grow

Vivian is a kind and engaged listener. She is trustworthy and approachable. Her empathetic personality lends naturally to facilitate discussion. Even though she is kind, she also makes you think more critically of your actions in a nonjudgmental way, which is key in a therapist. I have definitely grown from my conversations with Vivian. She is a wonderful therapist, and I would recommend her to any of my friends.
