Sang Lintakoon

MA, LPCC, NCC, Theraplay Trained

Sang (she/her) has her MA in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and is a Licensed Professional Counselor Candidate who is Theraplay trained and working towards becoming a Registered Play Therapist under the supervision of Abby Esquivel. She specializes in working with children, teens, and adults who are navigating through anxiety, relational conflict, life transitions, and attachment wounds.

Sang is influenced by strengths-based, multicultural, and internal family systems approaches to counseling and is passionate about helping people feel seen, heard, and less alone.  She believes that a decision to seek counseling is one of the bravest and kindest decisions you can make for yourself and she is humbled by the thought of being part of your process!

After working for several years in corporate marketing, Sang transitioned into the world of non-profit ministry work. This work opened up opportunities for her to witness the resiliency of many diverse populations, ranging from refugee families in the U.S. to adoptees in Zambia, Africa. She witnessed the incredible power a listening ear and empathetic presence has to bring hope, encouragement, and healing to others and decided to pursue counseling to be a part of that process for more people.

As a first-generation Asian American who has spent time around many cultures, Sang is especially passionate about issues of racial identity and cultural influences. Her work in Zambia, Africa has also ignited a passion in her for adoption, foster care, and global orphan care. In her spare time, Sang enjoys hiking, traveling, and trying out authentic hole-in-the-wall restaurants with friends. She hopes she’ll get a chance to work with you soon!
