Graduate Counseling Intern

Supervised by Jill Baumgarner, LPC

Thy Tran

Thy strives to help her clients gain the freedom and safety to explore themselves in all areas and stages of life. Thy is LGBTQ+ affirming, sex and body positive, monogamous and non-monogamous relationships aware, and seeks to provide high quality services to all, regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, ability and/or socioeconomic status.


Along with a firm belief in reducing the barriers that exist when it comes to mental health support, Thy works from a Narrative perspective to empower and reframe an individual’s experiences to find their voice, and use it in a beneficial way. She believes that through healing stories and collaborative conversations, an individual’s narrative may reveal a new dimension and depth to their own uniqueness, and therefore, a reinvention of their intimate life.

Thy aspires to guide her clients, both individuals and couples, through depression, anxiety, trauma, and other difficulties—by identifying negative thought patterns and behaviors, new affirmative beliefs and actions may be introduced to aid clients in re-identifying their distinctiveness in a positive manner. She understands the bravery required to self-disclose and address frustrations and is here to extend a safe place for clients to discover themselves. Along with Narrative techniques, Thy pushes to incorporate mindfulness techniques for clients to access safety and control of their personhood; individuals that have awareness of themselves can then better express their needs to others in a relationship.

Thy is currently working towards her master’s degree in counseling at St. Edward’s University. She is open to expanding her knowledge and horizons and is always ready to learn new theories and information to enhance a client’s needs and experiences.

Thy is supervised by Jill Baumgarner, LPC.

Thy's rate is $45 for a 50-minute session and $70 for an 80-minute session.
