Tri Nguyễn is a Vietnamese American licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT) from San Diego, California. Since 2015, Tri has served as a contract counselor for the US Navy as a clinical and advocacy counselor at the Fleet and Family Support Center. This work has allowed him the opportunity to travel from San Diego, California to Sasebo Japan, Djibouti (Horn of Africa) and now in Oak Harbor, Washington. Prior to 2015, Tri worked in various positions as a mental health counselor and restorative justice mediator for over 10 years in public/community mental health, non-profit organizations serving Asian Pacific Islander Americans and other underserved communities in San Diego.

In 2021, he started an online private practice, Constructing Possibilities PLLC, providing individual and couples therapy to residents of California and Washington State. Tri earned a PhD from The Taos Institute and Vrije Universite Brussel in 2021. His dissertation examined the inter-relationships between interculturality, decoloniality and multicultural competence counseling practices. Tri is passionate about social constructionist ideas and wants to deepen his understanding of its application with social justice issues, restorative practices, culturally responsive counseling practices (particularly with Vietnamese/Asian populations), and decoloniality.
