Dr. Natalie Loong is a California licensed clinical psychologist with years of experiences working in community mental health, outpatient, residential, and private practice settings in Hong Kong and the United States. As a bilingual psychologist, Dr. Loong provides services in both English and Cantonese and has extensive experiences working with adults, adolescents, and children from diverse cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds.

Trained in Psychodynamic and Existential-Humanistic traditions of psychotherapy, Dr. Loong specialises in providing psychotherapy that is in-depth and insight-oriented with the goal of creating lasting changes in clients’ lives. Dr. Loong works closely with clients to explore and work through unconscious aspects of their experiences, recurring themes and patterns in their lives, and underlying functions of their difficulties. Through the experiential and intellectual learning that takes place in the process, clients develop deeper understanding and appreciation of themselves, discover new ways of being and relating and are empowered to liberate from old symptoms, behaviours, and patterns.

Dr. Loong is also experienced in providing play therapy – a developmentally appropriate psychotherapy approach for children that uses play as a medium for communication. The symbolic function of play allows children to comfortably and safely express troubling events and experiences. Utilising play, Dr. Loong attempts to experience, understand, and work on difficulties interactively with child clients, empowering them to consider new solutions to their problems, learn adaptive ways of coping, and change the way they think or feel in the process.

Over the years, Dr. Loong has worked with a broad spectrum of clinical and non-clinical issues across the lifespan including stress-related or adjustment difficulties, interpersonal relationship problems, struggles with meaning and purpose in life, difficulties with parenting, depression, anxiety, trauma, personality disorders, psychotic disorders, gambling disorder, school refusal, aggressive behaviours, oppositional and defiant behaviors, enuresis, separation anxiety, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), selective mutism, and self-harm. Despite so, Dr. Loong sees each client as a unique individual beyond his/her problems and is committed to empowering and accompanying her clients through their own journey of suffering, discovery and growth.

In addition to her clinical work, Dr. Loong is an adjunct faculty at the California School of Professional Psychology – Hong Kong, Alliant International University. She currently chairs students on their doctoral dissertations and has taught courses on multicultural and social justice psychology, research methods and designs, as well as psychometrics and statistics in the past.
