colin takahashi (he/they)

licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT 132375)

I am a queer, Korean-Japanese American. As I've walked through the world as such, there have been countless times when I've been told that I'm not man enough, that I'm unfit for love, and that I don't have a story that deserves to be heard. All too often, I've heard similar accounts from others who belong to the same communities I do. It is for this reason that I became a therapist - I have a strong desire to support those who have felt the most othered by society.

To better prepare myself for this work, I completed my Master's Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy at the University of Southern California. I've had the opportunity to train in various settings, including the Southern California Counseling Center, Venice Family Clinic, and UCLA's Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder Intensive Outpatient Program. I have experience working with a variety of issues including anxiety, depression, trauma, racial identity development, exploration of gender identity and sexual orientation, family conflict, relational discord, and career navigation. I have also had the privilege of volunteering with the Los Angeles LGBT Center's Community Action Network, supporting LGBTQI+ youth through awareness building and competency training.
