In this case study, I describe the course of therapy with a homeless Vietnamese client diagnosed with depression and suffering from traumatic memories of the Vietnam War. I discuss my relational, therapeutic assumptions and present reflections on my 6 months of therapy with him. I also identify important cultural lessons I learned and their potential applicability for other therapists. The purpose of this article is to offer a relational approach that attends to culture and language. Clinical implications are provided for therapists and therapists-in-training.
