About KC Galang, MA
I am currently in my second year of clinical experience working under the supervision of Dr. Jinariu. My experience includes working with children and adolescents within a school-based setting and working with adults and transitional age youth in community counseling settings. I am competent in treating trauma, grief, anxiety, and depression. I have recently worked at Project Sister Family Services where I provided treatment to survivors of sexual assault (children and adults) and their families. I enjoy providing therapy with faith integration. As a second-generation Filipina-American, I also enjoy exploring cultural and generational backgrounds with my clients. I approach treatment from an existential and humanistic lens with an emphasis on family systems and cultural background.

Upon completion of my undergraduate degrees, I worked as a Research Assistant for government grant-funded programs for substance use prevention in youth populations.

I also have additional training in The Gottman Method (Level 1 and Level 2), Motivational Interviewing for Substance Abuse, Play Therapy, Child Abuse Assessment and Reporting, Suicide Prevention, and Safety Planning.
