Introducing Biyang Wang, an Asian American Pyschotherapist based in the U.S.

Biyang is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and psychotherapist who has been offering telehealth and therapy online for the past few years. She’s currently based in Chicago, although she’s spent time travelling in South East Asia and is looking forward to a trip to Latin America soon! 

Although Biyang started by working with more international clients, now she mainly works with young adults in the US and often within the Asian American community. One benefit she’s seen come out of the pandemic is the greater understanding and acceptance of mental health in the Asian American community. As a result, she believes that seeking help is becoming more acceptable. 

Until Biyang discovered the LIT Community, she struggled to find people of a similar mindset. She loves the flexibility of the community and that she can join events from her phone while she gets things done!
