Ky Ngo Dennis’s Philosophy
“The foundation of therapy is a safe, nurturing, and non-judgmental presence. When clients feel that presence and support, great transformations can happen. My role as a therapist is to re-ignite my clients’ trust in their own resiliency and facilitate the body’s natural healing process.”
What Makes Ky Ngo Dennis Different?
Ky (pronounced “key) Ngo Dennis is a first-generation Chinese/Vietnamese-American, who was born in Vietnam and grew up in San Diego. From an early age, she developed a keen sensitivity to the suffering of others. Since her adolescence, she has dedicated much of her life to helping others through community service and advocacy work.
A strong believer in integrative/holistic health, Ky has dedicated herself to developing a style of practice that is “beyond talk therapy”. Ky believes in using a blend of modalities that can help her clients achieve results in less time compared to traditional talk therapy. Ky believes there is no “one size fits all” approach to therapy; therefore she tailors her treatment to the unique needs and background of each client.
She is certified in Neuro Emotional Technique (NET) and has received direct training from the founder of NET, Dr. Scott Walker. She also has experience in hypnotherapy/guided imagery, sandtray therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, art and play-based therapies, mindfulness meditation, and EMDR. Ky has provided organizational trainings, individual coaching, and university lectures on mind-body therapy and play therapy.
