My name is Hien “Josh” Tran and I was born and raised in New Orleans. I am the third born out of seven children. I identify as American-Vietnamese meaning my roots are richly grounded in both American and Vietnamese values.

One of the reasons why I chose my profession was the loss of my brother when I was a teenager. My brother died from a self-inflicted wound and we did not recover as a family. I believe the weight of his loss and not talking about our grief contributed to my parents divorce . Experiencing these challenges left me feeling uncertain, insecure, and scare, which led to a challenges with anxiety, depression, and substance use. My emotional and life development was arrested until I decided to turn my pain into something valuable.

I earned my Psychology and Social Behaviors bachelors degree from the University of California-Irvine. I completed my masters degree at Mount Saint Mary’s University with an emphasis on Marriage and Family Therapy.

Over the past five years, I have been working in various settings providing treatment for individuals experiencing trauma, grief and loss, anxiety, depression, bipolar, substance abuse, relationship distress and psychotic disorders.

I am passionate about my faith, family, and helping people becoming their best selves. I am a much stronger person when fulfilling my passions. My favorite pastimes are meditating, golfing, hiking and watching my New Orleans Saints, Lakers, and Dodgers.
