Guan utilizes an array of evidenced-based approaches such as Multi-Systemic Therapy (MST), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and The Gottman Methods. Guan demonstrates a commitment to the core values of being child-driven, family-centered, community-focused, strength-based, committed to diversity/cultural competency, and committed to continuous learning.
